About Newcastle University and Scholarship
Newcastle University, officially recognized as the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, stands as a distinguished public research institution in the vibrant city of Newcastle upon Tyne in North East England. With a global presence through overseas campuses in Singapore and Malaysia, the university has solidified its position as a red-brick university and a proud member of the prestigious Russell Group—an association of leading research-intensive universities in the United Kingdom.
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 eventually merged to form King’s College in 1937, and in a transformative move in 1963, an Act of Parliament granted King’s College the status of the University of Newcastle upon Tyne.
Organized 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 diverse array of educational programs. The university boasts around 175 full-time undergraduate degree programs covering a wide spectrum of subjects, including arts, sciences, engineering, and medicine. Additionally, there are approximately 340 postgraduate taught and research programs available, spanning various disciplines.
Financially robust, the institution reported an annual income of £543.2 million for the 2021–22 period, with £109.6 million sourced from research grants and contracts. This substantial investment underscores Newcastle University’s commitment to cutting-edge research and comprehensive academic offerings.
As a member of the Russell Group, Newcastle University is at the forefront of research-intensive universities in the UK. Its global standing is evident in rankings, with placements in the top 200 of various world rankings and the top 40 of UK rankings. Notable positions include 110th globally by QS, 292nd by Leiden, 139th by Times Higher Education, and 201st–300th by the Academic Ranking of World Universities.
