The University of Newcastle Language Centre was established over 20 years ago and has built an excellent reputation as a quality ELICOS provider. It is located on the campus so students are immediately integrated into the university lifestyle. Many students at the ELICOS centre continue their studies at NIC and the University of Newcastle so there is an academic focus on English. The centre is also an official testing centre for IELTS.
There are two libraries at the main campus - the Huxley and Auchmuty. The Auchmuty Library is regarded as one of the biggest and best university libraries in Australia and is open longer than any other university library in Australia.
