When Newman opened its door to the first cohort of 182 students in 1968, it was as a small Catholic teaching training college. Over the past 50 years Newman has experienced many milestone events, perhaps most significantly gaining University title in 2013. Newman has seen over 20,000 students graduate and make significant contributions to the education sector, and society as a whole. To mark our 50th anniversary we have created a timeline of our institution’s history.
