About University of New England (UNE)

University of New England (UNE) is Australia’s oldest regional university offering courses at undergraduate, postgraduate coursework and higher degree research levels. As well as career oriented courses such as teaching, nursing, law, agricultural economics, commerce, rural science, environmental science, communications studies, psychology and urban and regional planning. Teaching is strongly supported by staff research expertise. Courses are offered for on-campus students and by distance education. UNE is committed to teaching that is flexible, open to students' needs, sensitive to students' backgrounds, provides personalised support, is challenging in its academic content, and relevant to students’ future professional and civic lives.

UNE was recognised in the Good Universities Guide for 2005, receiving top rating (five stars) for overall educational experience for the sixth consecutive year, the only university in Australia to have maintained this rating 2000-2005. UNE’s School Recommendation Admission Scheme offers an alternative entry pathway for school leavers. UNE offers an attractive range of scholarships.

UNE is set in a beautiful environment, and half of the students who study on-campus also live in UNE residential accommodation, providing a unique living-learning experience. Students enjoy small class sizes and strong interaction with teaching staff. The campus offers outstanding academic resources, especially its library and computer facilities, and excellent sporting and social facilities. UNE’'s 15,000 students studying off-campus by distance education are supported by modern online communication and learning resources.

Campus information

The University of New England is on several sites in Armidale. The northern campus is five kilometres to the northwest of the city centre, in a rural and bushland setting. Part of this campus includes the original property presented by T R Forster to the University of Sydney for the establishment of a University College. This property comprised the old homestead, 'Booloominbah', with several other buildings and 74 hectares of land. Since the original gift, other generous benefactors have presented properties to the university, whose Armidale site now comprises some 260 hectares. Booloominbah and the Vice-Chancellor's residence Trevenna were designed by architect John Horbury Hunt. The Newling campus of the university includes the Newling Centre, home to the New England Conservatorium of Music, and other buildings associated with the former Armidale College of Advanced Education.

The university possesses rural properties close to the campus, providing facilities for teaching and research. In addition, there are the 'Tullimba' rural research property at Kingstown and the Douglas McMaster Rural Research Station at Warialda. The University of New England has one of the most extensive residential college systems in Australia. Around half of UNE’s on campus students live in one of the colleges.
