Newcastle inspires immense affection in locals and visitors alike. Our city centre is compact, so getting around couldn't be easier. It's also a regional centre for the arts, theatre and live music. And if you fancy getting away from it all, it's also close to great countryside and dramatic coastline.

Find out more about our postgraduate courses and funding opportunities on our website. Or visit our campus and meet our academics at one of our regular PG Café events, Postgraduate Open Days, or campus tours.

– What Being a Masters Student is Really Like
“It was liberating to choose my own project direction, but terrifying at the same time! However, I learned how to work more independently in both the lab and the office, which are important lessons for the work force.”
