Northumbria University


Northumbria is one of the largest universities in the UK with around 34,000 students from more than 130 countries.  The University offers over 400 different programmes across faculties of Business & Law, Engineering & Environment, Health & Life Sciences and Art, Design & Social Sciences.  The University’s modern city centre campuses give students access to world-class facilities within walking distance of everything this dynamic city has to offer.

Newcastle upon Tyne is consistently voted one of the top UK cities for students, and is one of the most affordable places to study in the UK. The city centre has many shops, restaurants, pubs and bars.  Newcastle is big enough to constantly entertain and surprise, yet small enough to easily travel around on the underground Metro system, regular buses or on foot.  The famous Newcastle Quayside has amazing bars and restaurants with views of the iconic Millennium Bridge, Tyne Bridge, Sage Gateshead and BALTIC Arts Centre.  The region of the North East of England is also perfectly located between the coast and countryside. It’s only hours away from Scotland, Europe and Wales and its train lines, ferry terminals and international airport connect our students to every corner of the UK and most of the world.

In September 2014 Northumbria opened its new London Campus. This exciting expansion offers students Northumbria’s academic quality and outstanding experience in the UK’s capital city, firmly establishing this University’s provision in two of the UK’s top student cities, Newcastle and London.
