Newcastle University is a world-leading university, advancing knowledge, providing creative solutions and solving global problems. The university is a founding member of the prestigious Russell Group, one of 24 leading research-intensive UK universities.

In recent years, Newcastle University has developed a presence in two similarly vibrant and globally-connected locations – Singapore and Malaysia. These provide both a global identity and opportunities for knowledge exchange that the University, its staff, and its students benefit from when developing partnerships, perspectives, innovations and solutions.

With its global reach and outstanding reputation for world-leading academics working at the forefront of research, Newcastle’s impressive student employability record and world-class facilities ensures it is a first-choice destination for students from around the world. Our 219,000 strong worldwide community of alumni are leading the way in fields as diverse as fine art, finance, and digital technology.

The university is recognised internationally for its work across broad multidisciplinary areas, including ageing and health, cities, culture and the creative arts, data, and energy; as well as for outstanding single disciplines. Newcastle’s research has attracted funding for several national research projects, and the University is home to the National Innovation Centre for Ageing, the National Innovation Centre for Data, the National Centre for Energy Systems, and the Urban Observatory – the largest set of open environmental monitoring data in the world.

Newcastle University is committed to delivering high-quality innovative postgraduate courses. From Masters Degrees to PhD study, students can choose from wide-ranging and innovative postgraduate taught and research options.

Newcastle University has a long history of outstanding learning and teaching. This was further endorsed in 2017 when the university was awarded TEF Gold, one of only eight Russell Group universities to achieve this highest UK government rating for the quality of undergraduate teaching. The University’s academics and researchers are solving some of the world’s biggest problems, and its teaching staff includes three T.S. Eliot Prize winners, the Scottish national poet Jackie Kay, and Turner Prize nominees.
