The University of Newcastle was founded upon the vision of making higher education more available, even if you’re a professional with a full-time commitment to work and family. Our convenient classes, offered online or on-campus at selection locations, make going back to school a real option for working adults. Access your class online, study on your own schedule and earn your degree.

Supported Distance learning

The UNC teaches through its own unique method of distance learning, called ‘supported open learning’, which is:


  • Flexible – students work where and when they choose to fit in with jobs, families and other commitments
  • All-inclusive – students get all the high quality materials they need to study
  • Supportive – personal tutors provide academic expertise, guidance and feedback and run group tutorials; and specialist advisers are on hand to help with other aspects of UNC study
  • Social – students get together at tutorials, day schools and informal study groups; and through online conferencing, study networks and course forums.

 Newcastle is the institution of higher education in the United States. The University, which is based in Delaware,  has an enrollment of over 10,000-degree candidates, including undergraduate, graduate, and professional students. Newcastle has more than 60,000 alumni around the world.


An innovative approach

Our commitment extends to our higher education innovations as well. The university of Newcastle helped pioneer many of the conveniences that students now enjoy — evening classes, flexible scheduling, a university-wide academic social network, an immersive online classroom and an online library.

In addition, the University has 15 years of experience in online education — a kind of education that’s research-proven to be just as effective as conventional instruction.


Our faculty members have both real-world and academic experience. This means students can use what they learn in class the very next day they’re at work. And we offer degree programs at the associate, bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral levels — to give students choices and room to grow.
