General Description:

For over 60 years, the University of New England has been a leader in providing distance education to students throughout Australia and the world.

UNE was formed in 1938 as the New England University College, a College of the University of Sydney. The University became fully independent in 1954 and pioneered teaching to external students by correspondence, making UNE Australia's most experienced provider of distance and now online education.

Our focus is on your future, providing you with a personal and flexible approach to learning. We offer more than 200 courses at undergraduate, postgraduate coursework and higher degree research levels with options to study online or on campus.

Why choose us?

UNE is renowned for its flexible distance education program, which allows students to study from almost anywhere in the world. Units in the BA can be studied completely online with comprehensive resources and support from staff.

For on-campus students, the BA at UNE is unique because of its small class sizes with academics who care about each student and encourage a culture of interaction between students and staff. The range of extra-curricular learning options is exceptional, with active vibrant campus life and excellent accommodation, sporting and cultural facilities.

The BA involves the study of human societies from a variety of historical, geographic, sociological, scientific, religious, literary and artistic perspectives. Disciplines in the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences offer an intellectually exciting education that provides both vocational skills and the foundation for lifelong learning. The Bachelor of Arts course provides the skills of independent thinking and cultural awareness that underline the creation of an equitable, humane and inventive society.

At UNE you will be invited to combine an initial breadth of study with an eventual depth of understanding. You start by choosing units from four or more subject areas, before specialising in those areas that hold your interest. You will finish with at least one major from the 33 subject areas available. You will develop both a set of specific skills, and a breadth of knowledge, allowing for a more flexible response to the many opportunities in respect to work, postgraduate study, or personal interests.
