World-class teaching in a research intensive environment
Not only is Newcastle a great city to spend three years or more, the University has one of the finest reputations in the United Kingdom for undergraduate teaching. This is justified by the 97% score that the Faculty received in the last national review of teaching quality.
The Faculty of Medical Sciences is the home of undergraduate learning for a range of courses in the fields of Biomedical and Biomolecular Science, Dentistry, Food and Human Nutrition, Medicine and Surgery, Pharmacy, Psychology, and Sport and Exercise Science.
These undergraduate programmes are supported by academic staff who are world leaders in their respective fields. We have a policy of continual investment and renewal in teaching resources, and we are happy to have some of the best resourced and most inviting facilities available.
