The Brian Dabell Scholarship was established by Brian Dabell, who graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering in 1971. Its purpose is to provide financial assistance to a student who is enrolled in an MEng program throughout their entire four-year degree but is unable to do so due to financial constraints.


About the Scholarship:

Here, the University of New South Wales college that would later become Newcastle University was first founded. Established in the latter half of 1951, it opened its doors to students in the following academic year. Full autonomy was granted to the University of Newcastle by an act of the New South Wales government in 1964. Since its inception in 1965, it has consistently been ranked as one of the world’s best institutions. University success is a result of its early students, teachers and administrators bringing in cutting-edge methods of thinking and doing things. A good illustration of this is the welcoming and secure environment on the university’s campuses in Callaghan, Newcastle and Central Coast, as well as in Singapore and Sydney. More than 140 hectares of natural bushland make up the Callaghan campus, which houses buildings that have won architectural awards and were built to world-class standards. Additionally, the campus acts as a hub for a wide range of academic subjects, including humanities, social sciences, STEMM, and science.

Central to the city’s economic and legal development is the Newcastle City Campus, which serves as a vital link between the commercial and creative sectors. In spite of the college’s central position, it’s no surprise that it’s bustling with creative energy. With its cutting-edge technology, NUspace, the university’s campus offers a “next generation” university experience to its students. Newcastle and Sydney are both around an hour’s drive away from Ourimbah, a small town on the Central Coast of New South Wales. In addition to dental hygiene and podiatry, this university’s academic programs include a wide range of other fields such as nursing and the natural and social sciences (food, coastal and marine, and exercise and sports). Students who have completed their studies and earned adequate work experience in Australia are eligible for permanent residency.” Newcastle and Central Coast students can stay for up to three years, while Sydney students can stay for up to four years, as a way to encourage student retention in remote areas of Australia. 7 399 of the university’s 37 946 students are from 113 different nations. A 155,000-strong alumni network spread across 149 countries completes the picture.


The University of Newcastle in Australia has a long history of innovative academic programs and exceptional teaching and learning. As a result, the university has risen to the top of the world’s university rankings. In addition to undergraduate, postgraduate, and research-level programs, the University of Newcastle College for International Education offers an English Language Center and educational pathways. You’ll be studying at a prestigious university with some of the best professors in the world in cutting-edge facilities. Students from around the world can make new friends at the university where they are studying. They include Steve Abbott (an actor and comedian), David Berthold (a theatre director), Scott Bevan (a journalist), Jonathan Biggins (an actor and writer), Pete Gray (an environmental activist), Christian Heim (a composer), Paul A. Broad (a former CEO of Infrastructure NSW), Susie Porter (an actress), and Janeen Webb (a novelist and poet) among others (Actor, comedian, & broadcaster). You may participate in a variety of water activities in the beaches and waterways near Newcastle. Lake Macquarie, Australia’s largest coastal saltwater lake, can be accessed by automobile in just a few hours from Sydney and is four times larger than Sydney Harbour.

Newcastle is able to maintain a busy corporate and commercial sector and an extraordinary network of health care and educational institutions because of the city’s surrounding population of around 450,000 people. The combination of a lovely setting and low living expenses in Newcastle results in a peaceful way of life. Newcastle, a city in New South Wales, is a three-hour train ride from Sydney. Depending on which mode of transportation you choose, you can get to the heart of the city in 15 to 40 minutes (train). University of Newcastle provides the best of both worlds for international students: an enriching social life and a rigorous academic education. The University of Newcastle is home to about 30,000 students, including over 6,000 international students from more than 80 countries. Students can choose from 150 courses spanning over six major faculties (Colleges).


It’s hard to find a prettier place to study than the University of Newcastle in Newcastle, Australia. It is possible for students to concentrate on their studies without interruption because of the Australian wildlife and the 300 acres of natural bushland on the property. The retail district of the Union is a veritable shopping mall. There are also bars, a bookshop, and a financial union among these options. Two banks, a travel agency, and a medical facility with on-call dentists and doctors are also accessible. Students who live on campus have access to a top-notch sports facility. This facility has a 60-foot climbing wall, two indoor basketball courts, two martial arts studios, weight and training rooms, and a Health Education Center. A 60-foot climbing wall and an Olympic-sized indoor pool are also available.

A model for Australia’s higher education system can be found in the UK. Students in their freshman year of college generally attend weekly lectures, class discussions, workshop sessions, tutorials and independent study time in addition to independent research time. Beginning of each semester, students receive deadlines (also known as final deadlines) for their assignments. Fines will be imposed if they fail to fulfill the deadlines, regardless of whether the work has been finished. During orientation week, students can register for classes and obtain the lecture and class schedules for all of their required academic disciplines at their convenience. Students are expected to show up on time for all classes and tutorials. Attendance at one or two classes each week is typical, and much of the content examined is based on a midterm or final test.
