University of Newcastle Opens Campus In Sydney Central Business District
The University of Newcastle‘s new campus in the Sydney CBD (Central Business District) is open for postgraduate studies in business and accountancy, and English language studies, with the first students beginning their studies in August this year for an expected May 2010 completion.
“While we have many international students in Newcastle, there are those who wish to live in Sydney but also study at our university,” he said. “This campus gives them the opportunity.”
“Newcastle has been delivering postgraduate education for more than 23 years and was one of the first universities in Australia to offer a Master of Business Administration program,” he said.
The Sydney presence has been purpose-built within space on Bathurst Street.
“We are delighted to have a Sydney presence, which adds to our campuses in Newcastle, on the Central Coast, at Port Macquarie, in Singapore and in Hong Kong,” Saunders said.
Forty-eight students are currently enrolled in the Master of Business and Master of Professional Accounting programs, with a further 20 enrolled in ELICOS (English Language Intensive Courses).
Students are from China, Hong Kong, Thailand, Iran, Saudi Arabia and Australia. The Sydney presence features wireless internet throughout, a library, computer laboratory, study areas, lecture theatres, on-site teaching and learning support and fully integrated audiovisual facilities for video conferencing.
