Northumbria University has approximately 33,500 students, 23% of whom are international. A thriving multi-national community of staff and students from over 136 countries ensures you will receive a warm welcome whichever programme you study.
The university is located in Newcastle Upon Tyne, a city in the North East of England, which has been voted the UK’s best city for students as Northumbria University received the best "City Life" award in this year's WhatUni Student Choice Awards.
You’ll find everything you need on our tree-lined campuses, from libraries and laboratories to accommodation, entertainment, places to eat and drink, and outstanding sports facilities. We’ve invested £200 million to make sure that our campuses are places where you enjoy spending time.
Newcastle upon Tyne is regularly named as the UK’s Best University City by MSN Travel Guide. It’s partly due to the city’s compactness, which makes it large enough to be vibrant and exciting while small enough to feel like home. It’s also due to the sheer number of students: one in every six people in the city is a student.
