Student Charter

Our vision is of Newcastle as a world-leading University, advancing knowledge, providing creative solutions and solving problems.

** Please note the following clarification: All students are expected to be respectful of others and their rights to hold and express their own opinions, even while engaging in academic debate involving contradictory or alternative viewpoints. (Section 4: Academic Rights refers) **

This vision is based firmly on our core values:

  • Equality, diversity and inclusion
  • Social and environmental justice
  • Respect for academic freedom

It is also informed by three aspirational values that guide everything we do:

ExcellenceCreativity and Impact.
