Pre arrival information

If you are planning on studying at UNE or have been accepted to study at UNE then there is a lot to think about before you arrive in Australia. Here you will find information about what you might need to consider.

UNE International strongly recommends you arrive at least two weeks before university starts. This will allow you time to prepare for all your essential needs (accommodation, banking, enrolment) and attend international student orientation.

For detailed information please refer to the following sites:

If you have any questions or require further assistance regarding your arrival to Armidale or Sydney please contact UNE International on 02 6773 3192.

Why not chat with a UNE student before you arrive.

Bushfire Information

Bushfires are impacting parts of Australia. However, thankfully many parts of Australia remain unaffected.

The New England area is not currently threatened by fires, but we have experiences of smoke haze on some days. People with existing lung conditions, such as asthma, may experience an exacerbation of their symptoms and should be prepared to activate their Asthma (or COPD) Action Plan.

For information about what to do in an asthma emergency refer to Asthma Australia - Asthma First Aid.

Unfortunately, there has been a great deal of misinformation on social media and other media channels about the true situation, including distribution of maps which suggest that the bushfires are spread across a much wider area than is actually the case.

Please always refer to the NSW Rural Fire Service for accurate and up to date information.
