In the heart of the city, the campus is a swarm of invention. NUspace, the university’s cutting-edge facility, provides a “next generation” university experience.

Higher education in Australia is based on the British model. This implies that most undergraduate courses include weekly lectures, classes, workshops, and tutorials, as well as ‘unstructured’ time for students to pursue independent reading and research. Students are given ‘deadlines’ (final dates) for completing coursework in all disciplines at the start of each session. Even if they have completed the work, they will be fined if they do not meet certain dates. Students will be provided lecture and class hours for all coursework subjects when they enroll during orientation week. All students must attend lectures and tutorials at the designated hours. The majority of graded content is assessed on a midterm and final assignment or exam, and students typically attend class 1-2 times per week for each class.
