NORTHUMBRIA UNIVERSITY

With sprawling sports facilities, modern accommodation and fantastic resources, Northumbria University is the perfect place to excel in your studies.

Known for its business-focused and professional approach, the uni, which is based in the very heart of Newcastle, has a global reputation for academic excellence.

With nine out of ten students landing professional jobs within six months of graduating, the sky is the limit for Northumbria alumni.

Pulling out all the stops for its students, the university boasts over 150 societies – so that pupils can feel included out of the classroom as well as in it. With everything from musical theatre and salsa to pro-wrestling and lacrosse, it is fair to say you will well and truly find your niche.

Affordable and thriving, the city itself makes the perfect student home – as over 35,000 pupils from all over the world can testify.

With world-renowned nightlife on the doorstep, you can pretty much go out on any night of the week and there'll be plenty going on.

Student favourites include Cosmic Ballroom, Soho Rooms and Digital – which has a trophy cabinet of awards including UK’s No1 Large Club, Club of the Year and 11th Best Club in the World.

If going out isn’t your thing, then there is plenty else for Northumbria students to do out-of-hours.

On a Friday night, the University’s Sports Central building plays host to the Newcastle Eagles – Britain’s most successful basketball team.

Students can also get to witness the trials and triumphs of the ‘Toon Army’, as the local football team, Newcastle United, take to the pitch at St James’ Park – just a 15 minute walk from City Campus.

Getting to and from the two main Northumbria campuses could not be easier, with a metro system which can take you from the inner city to coast or the airport.

Manors station is just short walk from the City Campus and buses run throughout the city and suburbs frequently.
