Based in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, which is regularly voted one of the top student cities in the UK, Northumbria University has an impressive record of high-quality teaching and world-leading research.

We have invested £200 million to make sure that our campuses are places where you enjoy spending time, whether you are attending classes, studying or meeting up with friends in one of our many social hubs.

From day one of your pathway programme, you’ll find everything you need on our tree-lined Newcastle campuses, from libraries, laboratories and studios, to accommodation, places to eat, our careers and employability service, outstanding sport facilities and our award-winning wellbeing and student support services (Times Higher Education’s Leadership and Management Award 2015).

Whether you’re an experienced traveller or this is your first time out of your own country, it can be overwhelming to arrive somewhere new for the first time. We want you to feel at home when you’re here and we pride ourselves on being knowledgeable and approachable so we can help you with any queries you may have.

In addition to our 2 Newcastle campuses, we also have a campus in London, near Liverpool Street offering Top-Up degrees, Pre-Masters and postgraduate programmes.
