Newcastle University

Postgraduate Study 2017

About us

Our city

Just a short walk from

Newcastle University

campus is one of the

most beautiful, friendly

and lively cities in the

UK. We boast world-class

arts, music, shopping

and sport right in the

city centre and we’re just

25 minutes from both the

beach and countryside.

It’s no wonder then

that we are one of the

UK’s favourite cities.



and safe

With one in six people in Newcastle

a student you’ll be in familiar

company from the start, so you’ll

feel at home straightaway. The locals

are also a welcoming bunch, with

a reputation for being one of the

friendliest cities in the UK. It’s no

wonder then that our students feel

safe on campus with a satisfaction

rating of 93% for safety (International

Student Barometer survey,

Autumn 2015).

Your £ goes further

Student rents and the cost of living

are amongst the lowest in the UK,

saving you money and providing

more opportunities to spend on

Newcastle’s many attractions.


Newcastle has the feel of a big city

in a compact space, so you’re never

far from what’s going on. It’s easy to

get around and most places within

the city are just a short walk from

the campus so you get the best of

both worlds. For a change of scene,

you can even hop on the Metro

rapid transport rail system and take

a trip to the coast in just 25 minutes.

Great transport links

Along with a mainline train station

with fast links to other UK cities,

Newcastle also has an international

airport and ferry terminal, meaning

the city is well connected to the

rest of the UK, Europe and beyond.

This makes getting home for the

holidays or using the city as a base

to explore further afield really easy.

Getting around the city is simple

too, with a comprehensive bus and

cycle network and Metro rail system

connecting all areas of the city

and region.
