Joe’s student profile - E-Business (Information Systems) MSc
My course is extremely engaging, delivering knowledge through seminars, group activities, guest talks and more. The teaching environment is personal and effective, and staff have an enthusiasm for the subject that really comes through during teaching.


Sam’s student profile - History of Medicine MA
I managed to obtain one of the “Newcastle University Postgraduate Opportunity Scholarships” which was £5,000. I am using this to pay for my tuition fees and then I have taken out the Postgraduate Loan to pay for my living costs.

Sam’s student blog – How I funded my studies
The Careers Service here is invaluable. It runs workshops to improve CVs, covering letters and interview techniques, as well as organising specific career events where companies from around the world visit and talk about their opportunities within specific fields.

Emma’s student blog - The Secret Life of a PG Researcher
Researcher lifestyle is incomparable to anything else I had experienced. If you plan to live like this, make sure you enjoy it and make the most out of it. You might only have a chance in life to learn so many things within such a short period of time. The satisfaction you get is what matters at the end of the day.

We are one of 24 Russell Group universities. The Russell Group represents leading research-intensive universities in the UK.

Our research delivers a positive impact on a global scale. Our dynamic research environment, equipment and facilities allow you to achieve your goals.


International students

Trust’s student profile - International Business Management MSc
I would say the most impressive element in this course is student support. As I am an international student and my first language is not English, Newcastle University provides a wide range of language support such as one-to-one tutorial, writing development centre, and series of In-sessional English classes. This is where I can develop my language skills and gain more confidence.

If English isn’t your first language, we offer pre-sessional English courses with INTO Newcastle. We also have pathway courses where you can prepare for direct entry onto one of our degrees.


Elmira’s student profile - Biomedical Engineering MSc
I am currently living in Leazes Terrace, one of the University’s postgraduate accommodations, which is 10 minutes walking distance to the campus. After I received my CAS letter, the university sent me an email which directed me to the accommodation portal, which provides information about each hall of residence. By following the information and instructions, the selection of my accommodation was an easy process.

We guarantee international students accommodation for the first year of a course. We also offer help and support if you are looking for private accommodation.


Our city and campus

Andrew’s student profile
Being a proud Geordie I would absolutely recommend the area! There’s so much to do in the city centre and beyond. There’s loads of great restaurants and bars in the city centre as well as museums, a castle, art galleries and of course St. James’ Park! You’re also only 20 minutes from the beach so when the sun is out you can get straight to Tynemouth and sun bathe.

The city is student friendly, multicultural and safe. Student costs of living are lower than the UK average. As a city based campus we’re in the heart of Newcastle near everything it has to offer, including a vibrant nightlife. Newcastle University is joint 12th for overall student satisfaction in the National Student Survey 2016.
