Newcastle University’s faculty are consistently seeking to challenge and address the biggest issues facing the world, approaching problems in new and creative ways. The result is a university where students can achieve not just a qualification but also contribute to making the world a genuinely better place.
While every area of the university employs the best education talent, there are some academic fields where Newcastle is considered to be a global leader:
Ageing in Health – the university’s own National Innovation Centre for Ageing brings together healthcare professionals and scientists to explore ways to improve the quality of life for older people, producing internationally-recognised work.
Data – the second National Innovation Centre owned by the university is that for data. The university’s School of Computing is ranked as the best in the UK for research impact.
Culture and creative arts – students won’t just learn how to develop their artistic talents, but those on the Arts, Business and Creativity MA also learn the necessary skills to set up their own creative business.
Cities – collaborating with Newcastle City Council, the university’s £350m Helix project will help shape the future of Newcastle’s urban development.
Energy – the university has a National Centre for Low Carbon Energy Storage, and a National Centre for Energy Systems Integration along with a £5m Supergen Energy Networks Hub. Crucial work is undertaken here in collaboration with utility companies.
