Why choose us?

Quality

Mathematics and statistics at Newcastle achieved an impressive 93% overall student satisfaction in the National Student Survey 2017.

Our mathematics and statistics degrees are accredited by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA). IMA accreditation means our degrees meet, in part, the educational requirements for the Chartered Mathematician (CMath) designation, with some additional study or experience required.

Teaching excellence

We are proud to have achieved a Gold Award in the UK Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF).

The award is a ringing endorsement of Newcastle University’s long tradition of excellence in teaching. It's a tradition already recognised in many different surveys and assessments and, most importantly, by our own students.

We keep our degrees updated with the research discoveries of our expert staff. This ensures you graduate with the most current subject knowledge.

Our academics' specialisms give you access to diverse fields of study, including the latest developments in Quantum Mechanics, Bayesian Statistics and Applications and Group Theory.

Support

We really pride ourselves in the supportive environment we provide to our undergraduates.

Transition Officer

We are fairly unique to have one dedicated member of staff whose responsibility is to help our students manage the transition from A-Levels to undergraduate study.

The Transition Officer works with Stage 1 undergraduates to provide:

  • stage 1 pastoral and academic support
  • attendance and academic performance monitoring
  • stage 1 induction
  • weekly drop-ins
Peer mentors

Recruited from our undergraduate courses, our peer mentors provide support, assistance and guidance to new students as they navigate their first year at Newcastle University.

Mentors work with new first-year students, giving assistance when they need:

  • support
  • someone who listens
  • someone to go through their different options and talk through choices
  • knowledge about where to get specialist advice and help

The scheme is not a substitute for personal tutoring or subject advisers, but does complement and supplement these systems.

Peer mentors are given thorough training. Boundaries are established about the limits of their role and responsibilities (to safeguard both mentors and mentees). They are fully supported by an administrative team.

If you are a current student and wish to apply to be a mentor, visit the mentor section on the School Blackboard community.

Work on original industry and business projects

We organise industrial and business projects and placements for students from year 2 undergraduate level through to postgraduate studies. These opportunities are very flexible. They are arranged throughout the academic year, during the summer period or through students taking a break from academic studies.

Projects with industry prepare students well for a career both outside and within academia, learning vital new skills and gaining new experiences. This video summarises projects with Northern Gas Networks (NGN), the regional gas distributor.
