About Newcastle University and Scholarship
Newcastle University, officially known as the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, stands as a distinguished public research institution nestled in the vibrant city of Newcastle upon Tyne in North East England. Renowned for its commitment to academic excellence and innovation, the university has further expanded its global presence with overseas campuses in Singapore and Malaysia. As a prominent red-brick university and a proud member of the Russell Group, an esteemed association of research-intensive UK universities, Newcastle University has solidified its position as a hub for cutting-edge research and transformative education.
The roots of Newcastle University trace back to the School of Medicine and Surgery, established in 1834, and the College of Physical Science, later known as Armstrong College, founded in 1871. These foundational institutions played a crucial role in the larger division of the federal University of Durham, with the Durham Colleges forming the counterpart. The amalgamation of the Newcastle colleges led to the formation of King’s College in 1937. A pivotal moment came in 1963 when an Act of Parliament elevated King’s College to the status of the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, marking a significant milestone in the institution’s journey.
Structured into three faculties—the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, the Faculty of Medical Sciences, and the Faculty of Science, Agriculture, and Engineering—Newcastle University offers a comprehensive array of full-time undergraduate degree programs spanning arts, sciences, engineering, and medicine. The commitment to fostering academic excellence is further reflected in the diverse portfolio of approximately 340 postgraduate taught and research programs offered across various disciplines.
Newcastle University’s dedication to research is evident in its impressive global rankings. As of 2023, it holds a position among the top 200 universities globally according to QS, securing the 110th spot. The university’s standing is further highlighted in national rankings, where it is joint 33rd by the Times/Sunday Times Good University Guide, 30th by the Complete University Guide, and 63rd by The Guardian.
To support diversity and inclusivity, Newcastle University is pleased to extend a helping hand to students domiciled in the European Union. The university is offering several partial EU Scholarships designed to assist EU students pursuing undergraduate degrees. This initiative aligns with Newcastle University’s commitment to fostering a globally engaged community and providing opportunities for students from diverse backgrounds to access high-quality education.
