About Newcastle University

A Global Top 125 university (QS World University Rankings 2023), Newcastle University is home to 29,000 students from 140 countries.

A founding member of the Russell Group, we are one of only 19 universities in the world – and just three in the UK – to

achieve a five-plus QS Star rating for overall excellence (2022).

We can trace our origins back to the School of Medicine and Surgery, established in 1834. Our Faculty of Science, Agriculture and Engineering recently marked 150 years of invention and innovation.

Today, we combine world-leading research with a world-class academic experience.

A global leader in the key research strengths of ageing and health, data, energy, cities, and the creative arts, we are pioneering solutions to some of the biggest challenges facing the world. In the UK’s Research Excellence Framework 2021, 42% of our research was scored as world leading.

Through 5-star teaching (QS Stars 2022), we educate for life. Students are challenged and supported to learn from world-class experts and academics across more than 185 undergraduate and 300 postgraduate degrees .

We are a partner in the £350 million Newcastle Helix, a global centre for science, technology, research and education. We host three national innovation centres in ageing, data and rural enterprises, and are home to an Urban Observatory, the largest sensor deployment in the UK and the largest set of open environmental monitoring data in the world.

Proud to be a University of Sanctuary, we promote a campus and community-wide culture of welcome, engagement and safety for people fleeing persecution and violence.

We were also one of the first universities to sign up to the UK Government’s Emissions Reduction Pledge and are working to reach net-zero carbon dioxide emissions by 2030.

Our international outlook

Dedicated to nurturing an internationally networked and diverse community of students, we have 5-QS Star 2022 credentials in both inclusiveness and internationalisation.

We have invested millions of pounds in financial support for our students , including a generous range of Vice-Chancellor’s international scholarships, subject and sports scholarships. International family discounts are also available.

Our dedicated Visa Support team and a range of pathway courses support the international student journey to Newcastle. Additional study support, including free in-sessional English programmes, helps our students gain the skills they need to succeed during their degree programme with us.

A 250,000-strong global alumni network complements our strong links with national and international employers, including Siemens, PwC, FDM, Accenture and Arup.

Campuses in Singapore (offering engineering degrees) and Malaysia (providing undergraduate medical and biomedical education) contribute to our global reach.
