Reputation and Quality

Reputation and Quality

Triple Accreditation

We are part of an elite group of Business Schools worldwide that hold triple accreditation from the three internationally recognised accreditation bodies.

Being triple accredited is a shining endorsement of the quality of our School and programmes. This places us in the top 1% of business schools worldwide. 

The process to be awarded with triple accredited status involves a meticulous assessment of the School’s activities and its programmes. During the assessment a panel visits the School and interviews staff, current students, alumni and corporate clients.

Our accreditation status is a recognition of the high quality of everything we do. It also boosts the reputation of the University around the world and benefits the wider business community in the city and region.

We see ourselves as part of the North East economic community and our accreditation status will help us contribute to real regional development.

Professional Accreditation

Our accreditation demonstrates our commitment to providing an exceptional education. It also confirms that our programmes meet the standards set by professional bodies.

Our programmes are significantly influenced and shaped by the needs of professional bodies and the global employment market.

Our accredited degrees share close links with industry, meaning that our students are exposed to cutting edge business developments.

Students graduating from accredited courses are also eligible to apply for membership of a professional body and may be exempt from professional exams or further academic study.

Student Experience

Our thinking, combined with a first class reputation for academic excellence, high graduate employability and excellent student experience makes sure that we are a first choice destination for students from across the world.

Russell Group University

As part of Newcastle University, we are a member of the Russell Group, the association of 24 leading UK universities which are committed to maintaining the very best research, outstanding teaching and learning experiences.

We’re pushing the boundaries. Being a Russell Group University means we are best placed to attract investment from some of the world’s leading global businesses. This helps us tackle the global threats our world faces and produce the highest quality research to develop solutions to some of the most pressing issues of today.

Student Experience

Our commitment to teaching quality and improving the student experience is reflected through our results in national and international student satisfaction surveys. We are joint 7th in the UK for overall student experience (The Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey 2018).

Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF)

Newcastle University holds the highest rating in the Teaching Excellence Framework and is one of only one of 8 Russell Group Universities to hold Gold status.

Decided by an independent panel of experts including academics, students and employer representatives, the TEF measures excellence in three areas: teaching quality, the learning environment and the educational and professional outcomes achieved by students.

International Student Barometer (ISB)

The gathering of student opinion is an essential component of the University’s quality assurance and quality enhancement processes. The International Student Barometer survey gauges the views of international students on a range of aspects of their experiences at the University.

Our most recent results (2017):

  • 93% were satisfied with the University overall
  • 88% would recommend Newcastle University as a place to study

Graduate success

We are one of the top 20 “most targeted” universities by the UK’s leading employers (The Graduate Market, report from High Fliers Research 2012-2018).

Our students have a bright future ahead of them. 92% of our graduates were in work or further study 6 months after graduating (DHLE 2016/17).
