The Guardian University Guide 2015 league table for computer science and information systems shows Newcastle Computing Science to be ranked 13 out of 102 institutions. The league table includes those institutions incorporating the design, exploitation and technology surrounding computing - including information systems, software engineering, programming and artificial intelligence. Some of the highlights for Computing Science, Newcastle are 'satisfied with course' = 90% (percentage of final-year students satisfied with overall quality), 'satisfied with teaching' = 85% (final-year students satisfied with the teaching they received) and overall score (score according to Guardian formula) = 70.6/100.

In the 2007 National Student Survey, Newcastle University was ranked by students as joint top amongst English computing science departments for overall satisfaction with their course. We were also among the top computing science departments for learning resources and providing an intellectually-stimulating curriculum.

Our commitment to learning

Along with our research partners, we were the only Centre of Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL) awarded by the Higher Education Funding Council for England for the discipline of computing science. The CETL legacy has improved the employability of our graduates through curriculum innovations in group and project work, including a state-of-art learning laboratory containing facilities for video conferencing.


All the support you need

We promote learning based on friendly and informal relations between students and staff. As well as regular meetings with personal tutors and project supervisors, students can also take advantage of the extensive support services available at the University and student's Union.


Additional support for international students

We have a long tradition of welcoming students from many different countries and backgrounds. Both the School staff and the International Office can provide information and advice before you apply to Newcastle, and where possible, can even put you in contact with someone from your home country who is already studying here.
