View Profile 
A world class civic University consistently ranked within in the top one per cent of world universities, Newcastle University is a thriving international community of more than 18,000 undergraduate and 6,000 postgraduate students from over 130 countries worldwide.
For us the primary feature of a civic university is its sense of purpose - an understanding of not just what it is good at, but what we are good for. We see ourselves as delivering benefits not just to individuals or individual organisations, but to society as a whole, using our academic knowledge, creativity and experience to come forward with innovations and solutions that will make a difference.
The University’s main campus is located in the centre of Newcastle upon Tyne, the cosmopolitan capital of North East England that enjoys a worldwide reputation for the quality of its cultural and social life.
As a member of the Russell Group of research-intensive universities in the UK, we have a world-class reputation in the fields of medicine, science and engineering, social sciences and the humanities.
