Northumbria is a research-rich, business focused, professional university with a global reputation for academic excellence.
Primarily based in Newcastle upon Tyne in the North East of England, with campuses in London and Amsterdam, the University has four Academic faculties — Arts, Design and Social Sciences, Business and Law, Engineering and Environment and Health and Life Sciences, supported by a number of professional support services. We have around 35,000 students and 3,000 staff and a consolidated income of £254 million in 2018/19.
We are a challenger institution, transforming to take on tomorrow. Our ambitious Vision puts academic excellence at the heart of everything we do; high-quality research creates new knowledge that benefits society and research-rich education transforms our students' lives, making a powerful contribution to cultural and economic development and regeneration, locally, nationally and globally.
Our current strategy provides a roadmap for five years, setting the pace and direction to meet our ambitious targets and our ongoing progress is reflected in our league table standing. We recently ranked in the top 30 universities in the UK after a significant 20 place rise to 27th in the Guardian University Guide 2021, and 57th in the Times Good University Guide. We are the top-rated UK young university in the Times Higher Education Young University Rankings 2020, and in the top 40 globally for research citations in the same table.
Our Vision will secure our future sustainability and success in this period of accelerated change in higher education. It’s an exciting time to be part of our journey.
