The University of New England was the first Australian university established outside of a capital city, and has a history extending back to 1938. With the main campus situated in Armidale NSW, the capital of New England, UNE boasts a world class reputation as a quality education provider.

UNE’s second campus is located in Parramatta, NSW. Studying at the UNE Sydney campus gives you a world class teaching and learning experience, access to cutting edge teaching and learning resources, with the added benefit of small class sizes.

UNE has approximately 22, 000 students enrolled worldwide in undergraduate, postgraduate coursework and Higher Degree Research programs across various fields of study.
