If you’re looking for sea and sun, Newcastle is the place to be. Situated along the coast, Australia’s second oldest city is known for its excellent surfing, historical architecture, warm climate and easy going attitude. If surfing isn’t your thing, you can still appreciate the laidback lifestyle and easy beach access while also being able to visit Sydney just two hours away. The University of Newcastle, with its bushland campus, provides a wide range of academic programs or internship opportunities to fit all students needs and is consistently ranked as a top school for architecture in particular. The sun-filled city also offers students a diverse cultural scene with a vibrant arts community, plenty of hip dining options, local boutiques and trendy bars helping to create a well-rounded atmosphere where students can cultivate their academic and social circles.
