“At Newcastle University, we want to ensure that every student, regardless of background, has access to a first-class level of education. We do not want to deter students of exceptional potential from applying to us. Our alumni fund was established on these principles.” - Dr John Hogan, Registrar
Thanks to the overwhelmingly generous support of our alumni, gifts to the alumni fund help us make a real difference.
Newcastle University graduates across the world help us provide PhD studentships to join the fight against childhood cancers; reach thousands of students most in need of financial support; bring to life unique projects to enhance student employability and benefit the community; support the Special Collections of our first-class library; provide support for undergraduate students and talented early career scientists, and support students needing dedicated help to transition to University life.
Through our annual campaigns, we speak to thousands of alumni asking them to support one of these key areas of need. This support aids bringing in the best students from all backgrounds, helping us remain one of the top universities in the UK and a civic university with a global reputation for academic excellence.
