Established in Newcastle in 1834, the Newcastle University can trace its origins to a school of medicine and surgery. At present, there are about 2,500 full-time students who come from outside the U.K. (about 16% of the student population), and over 100 countries are represented on campus.
The Newcastle University offers a wide range of courses in both undergraduate and postgraduate level. The university also offers a variety of courses in research. The subject areas include Arts, Business and Law, Combined Studies, Engineering, Foundation programmes, Life Sciences, Medical Sciences, Physical Sciences, and Social Sciences. The University also offers a range of English language courses. They established their Language Centre in 1969. All of their teachers are graduates and hold qualifications such as the RSA Certificate and Diploma in English Language Teaching as well as Postgraduate degrees in a variety of subjects. Again, all their classrooms are well-equipped and include audio-visual equipment for multimedia teaching and learning.
The Open Access Centre of the Newcastle University has been open to registered users since April 1997. This purpose-designed Centre provides facilities for the learning, teaching, and practice of languages. These facilities are available free of charge to members of Newcastle University and to the general public on payment of a fee.
At Newcastle, the majority of our degree programmes are modular. Each programme is made up of basic units called modules, and each module has a credit value.
