Case studies

The case studies highlighted represent only a small example of the significant European work we're proud to undertake.

Newcastle and Europe

Newcastle University is proud of its continuing identity as a European institution. Our researchers have a wealth of European expertise in:

  • histories
  • cultures
  • languages
  • landscapes
  • politics
  • heritages

We are experts in critical thinking about the past, present and future of Europe.

We study Europe as a global, cultural and geopolitical region. We focus on our responsibilities and contributions to global policy and society. Newcastle University's knowledge of European scholarships, debates and policymaking sets us apart.


Diverse learning experience

We are home to talented scholars and students from a wide range of European backgrounds. They contribute fresh ideas and diversity to our classrooms, and globalise the experience of our UK students.

We also partner with European universities, companies and non-profits. These partnerships support research collaboration, staff and student mobility, and joint teaching opportunities.
