Vision and Values

Our vision is of Newcastle as a civic university with a global reputation for academic excellence.

At Newcastle University, we have always focused on academic excellence and the impact of our academic work. Today, these long-held ideals are more relevant than ever. They define our vision for the University – the kind of university we wish to be.

This vision is supported by a strategic plan, articulated in Vision 2021- A World-Class Civic University. This sets out the objectives we aim to achieve by 2021. It outlines the core principles and values that guide how we will work together as a University towards these goals.

Our Internationalisation Strategy underpins our aim to be a world-class civic university.
