Newcastle University can trace its origins to the School of Medicine and Surgery established in 1834, and was awarded university charter as the University of Newcastle upon Tyne in 1963.  Today Newcastle Universityoffers a world-class learning and fully rounded student experience in one of the UK’s most vibrant and student friendly cities.

Newcastle University’s 50-acre campus is right in the city centre, at the heart of what has been consistently voted one of the best student cities in the UK.

In 2010 the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) complimented the University on the excellence of its research-based teaching and the training for employability of its students. We also received a ‘judgement of confidence’ from the QAA for our management of academic standards and quality of learning opportunities – the highest rating available.

Newcastle’s score in the annual National Student Survey (NSS) 2013 is higher than the national average, with 90% of respondents agreeing or strongly agreeing that they were satisfied with the overall experience at Newcastle University.

At subject level, 30 of the University’s 48 subject areas scored more than 90% with three scoring 100% and nine others achieving 95% or better.

Almost half of our degrees are developed with and accredited by, professional organisations.
