Arches at the University

Newcastle University

We are one of the UK's leading universities with a reputation built on the quality of our teaching, outstanding research and our work with the community and industry.


The Newcastle University can trace its origins to a School of Medicine and Surgery, established in Newcastle in 1834, and to Armstrong College, which was founded in the city in 1871 for the teaching of physical sciences. Find out more about the history of the University.
