Newcastle University can trace its origins to a College of Medicine established in the city in 1834. Today, it is one of the UK’s leading universities with a thriving international community of almost 24,700 students in three faculties: Humanities and Social Sciences; Medical Sciences; and Science Agriculture and Engineering.

A founder member of the Russell Group of research-intensive universities, we are committed to research that addresses some of society’s most pressing needs. Newcastle is ranked 8th in the UK for medical research power, and in the top 12 in the UK for Science and Engineering research power. In 2016 we attracted £180 million in research income.

Our Medical School in Malaysia, NUMed offers full UK medical and biosciences degrees in-country, while in Singapore we offer seven undergraduate degree programmes ranging from engineering to food and human nutrition.

Newcastle is in the top 20 universities in the UK for student satisfaction and we are also among the top 20 universities targeted by employers in the UK. Our graduates continue to be among the most highly employable in the country, with 94% of UK and EU first degree students progressing to work or further study within six months of graduating.
