Overview

With more than 30,000 students from over 130 countries, Northumbria University is one of the UK’s largest and most successful universities. Northumbria has a rich history going back through its constituent colleges to the late nineteenth century. Offering courses in most major subject areas such as Engineering, Computing, Sciences, Business, Law, Design, Built and Natural Environment, Arts, Social Sciences, Psychology, Sport, Health and many more.

Our lecturers are experts in their field and passionate about teaching. Many of our courses carry professional accreditation and as well as postgraduate courses which require a subject specific first degree, we offer a range of 'conversion' masters for those who are considering a change of direction. Northumbria’s consistently excellent performance in UK quality audits places it at the very top among modern universities and the University recently achieved a Silver TEF rating. 

Its National Student Survey scores for overall satisfaction have been above the sector average for the last 2 years and it is one of the top 10 universities in the UK for the number of graduates employed in professional or managerial roles.

Northumbria’s main campus is located in Newcastle upon Tyne in the North East of England, less than three hours from London  and just over an hour from Edinburgh, with extensive direct international air links to the likes of Dubai, Florida and all major European hubs. The University also has a campus in the centre of London and recently opened a European base in Amsterdam too. The cost of living is lower in Newcastle than many other cities in the UK and it is regularly voted one of the best UK cities for students! Northumbria boasts one of the best city campus sites in the country having invested well over £250 million in outstanding new facilities for students, including its most recent additions of extensive new architecture studios and a new building for students studying computing and information sciences courses. A huge £30 million sport centre in the heart of the campus provides students with an extensive gym, swimming pool, climbing wall, sports halls and fitness classes, as well as a 3,000-seat arena.
