Student review
The faculty at UNE are amazing in every department - from student services to disability, administration to the school of arts and humanities.The time and dedication offered by its music academics through the duration of my course is beyond impressive and is exemplary. Combine that with very interesting materials taught on the course and UNE have my highest recommendations as a place of further study.
