About the University of Newcastle
The University of Newcastle is a major research university in Australia, increasingly recognised internationally as a rapidly emerging educational institution. The University of Newcastle is ranked in the top ten in Australia for research funding and outcomes, and is one of the world's top 100 universities for engineering / technology and computer sciences (Shanghai Jiao Tong University rankings by field 2007).

The main campus is located in the city of Newcastle: on the coast about two hours drive north from Sydney. The School of Mathematical and Physical Sciences provides a stimulating and supportive environment for research and teaching, with ample opportunities for collaborative research partnerships both within the university and with industry. Although well known for its beautiful beaches and pleasant climate, Newcastle is home to a significant port, and Australia's largest coal-handling terminal. Newcastle is also at the gateway of one of Australia's largest wine-growing regions, the Hunter valley. In addition, Newcastle is home to top-class medical and medical research facilities, affiliated with the University, which is ranked 63 in the world for biomedical research. Thus opportunities for research in shipping, transportation, mineral resources, agriculture, health and medicine abound.
