About

The School of Education, Communication and Language Sciences (ECLS) is an exciting multidisciplinary School. We offer both undergraduate and postgraduate degrees and have research interests.

Academic pioneers:

Despite the school being a School of Medicine and Surgery, there have been educationalists at Newcastle for over 100 years. In 1890, we created our first teacher training centre which continues it's groundbreaking work today. 

A history of innovation:

We were the first university in the country to offer a degree in speech and language therapy. With over 40 years' experience, we train language teachers, speech therapists, psychologists and applied linguists. 

Dedicated resources:

We have excellent facilities for our students and staff including online resources.
