Social Mobility

Newcastle University aims to make opportunities possible for everyone.

Newcastle University aims to create opportunities for potential students and current students so they can realise their ambitions regardless of their personal circumstances or background.

We strive to ensure access to higher education is possible for all and the University engages in a high level of activity to encourage bright school pupils from any background to apply. Personal circumstance should never be a barrier to making the most of your academic talent.

Our Partners Programme offers support and opportunities to help these prospective students make a successful application to Newcastle. Our Career Insights Programme supports their career aspirations whilst they are here, by providing access to key employers and to personal development. 

These are just two of the schemes in place to help improve the social mobility of our students.
