University of Newcastle upon Tyne

Today’s University

The University of Newcastle upon Tyne is a popular university with an excellent pedigree in research and teaching and is closely integrated into the economic, cultural and social life of the North East.

From our origins in 19th-century medicine and the physical sciences, we have developed a strong and vibrant interdisciplinary research base

research income from grants and contracts reached £53,100,000 in the year 2003-2004
in the 2001 Research Assessment Exercise, 40 out of our 45 Units of Assessment were rated as nationally or internationally leading (5*, 5 or 4)

Our teaching record across all disciplines is outstanding, and we were chosen by The Sunday Times newspaper as its University of the Year 2000-01. The newspaper commented ’Backed by superb all-round strength, Newcastle is our choice because of its outstanding teaching record.’

no subject taught at Newcastle has been awarded fewer than 20 out of the maximum 24 points by the Quality Assurance Agency
the Medical School has gained 143 out of a possible 144 points in its six subject areas - Medicine, Dentistry, Physiology, Psychology, Pharmacology and Molecular Biosciences
we host the Learning and Teaching Support network for Medicine and Dentistry, a national initiative which enables centres of excellence to promote good practice

We currently have a core student population of 16,339 in 2002-03, 4,187 staff and an annual income of more than £210m. More than 2,000 overseas students choose to study here, from over 100 countries, and our graduates are much sought-after by employers.

However, we are aware that there is always room for improvement and so, during 2002, the University undertook a major restructuring exercise with the aims of

building on our existing strengths and allowing new ones to emerge
creating a leaner, fitter institution
commanding a position within the top ten universities in the UK in terms of teaching and research within five years

At the heart of the plan was the formation of fewer, bigger academic units. Three new faculties were created, each headed by a Provost

Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences
Faculty of Medical Sciences
Faculty of Science, Agriculture and Engineering

and 27 new schools were formed from the 75 departments which previously existed.

The aim is to create a £6 million-per-year fund for investment. This fund will provide the ’headroom’ to build on current and emerging strengths and to invest in new staff, initiatives and infrastructure.
