The reasons to choose the University of New England (Australia)

  1. An affordable, truly Australian lifestyle: UNE’s primary campus is nestled into the city of Armidale, in the heart of the picturesque New England Tableland region of New South Wales. The New England region is famous for its magnificent gorges, waterfalls and rivers. Our area has a rich history and vibrant culture and is loved for the contrasting beauty of the four distinct seasons. The Armidale community is proud of its diverse, multicultural society. We have students from over 70 nations studying here. The engagement of international students with the broader community is an important aspect of life at UNE. We know our students enjoy the warm welcome they receive when they arrive. They also appreciate the lower cost of living here compared to capital cities.
  2. Close interaction with teaching staff: With one of the lowest staff-to-student ratios among Australian universities, we give you the chance to interact more easily with your classmates and academic staff. When you have this close contact with your teachers and peers, you can have in-depth discussions and ask questions more freely. Smaller class sizes also mean that you are not just a number at UNE. One of the things international students like most about our university is that lecturers and academic staff know their names.

“Quietly sitting 475 kilometres north-west of Sydney in the NSW Northern Tablelands, Armidale balances a city-esque vibe amid a country landscape. This seemingly sleepy country town is, in fact, a buzzing urban centre with an impressive catalogue of galleries, museums, music gigs and theatre performances. In addition, there’s a bounty of cafés and restaurants, many of which focus on local ingredients, as well as picturesque national parks, majestic waterfalls and plenty of walking trails to get your fill of country air. Suffice to say, and its cover has been blown.” – Australian Traveller
