South East Asia and Oceania

Newcastle University has forged strong relations with a wide range of partners in South East Asia and Oceania.

Achieving sustainable solutions

We aim to create globally aware problem-solvers ready to define the future of industry, government and the public sector.

Our researchers work hand in hand with partners in South East Asia and Oceania. They’re able to achieve sustainable solutions to some of the world’s most challenging problems. This includes informing healthy ageing and monitoring water quality.

We are also proud to work with more than 2,300 students from South East Asia and Oceania at our Newcastle, Singapore and Malaysia campuses. They contribute to our academic excellence and global university community.

We’ve placed student interns at several ICSC member sites, including Youth for Peace in Cambodia. Students actively promote social justice and a universal culture of human rights. They work to:

  • empower marginalised communities
