Fraser Kennedy, Performance Sport Manager, reflects on the University's achievement: "A top 10 national ranking is a significant achievement, and one Newcastle University can be proud of when considering the level of competition that sits within the top 25 institutions. This is a KPI for the University and goes a long way in supporting the University's reputation and profile for recruitment purposes and the overall student experience. This achievement is a result of all the hard work and commitment staff and student athletes have put in throughout 2022/23."
