The University of New England (UNE) is a public university in Australia. Originally named New England University College, UNE was established as a college of the University of Sydney in 1938. It was the second university established in New South Wales and Australia’s first regional university. Besides, the University of New England was the first Australian university established outside a capital city. With a history extending back to the 1920s, UNE has a well-earned reputation as one of Australia's great teaching, training and research universities. 

UNE is internationally recognized for its innovative approach to online teaching and research excellence with 87% of its research fields rated world standard or above. It offers more than 200 courses at undergraduate, postgraduate coursework and higher degree research levels with options to study online or on campus.
