Newcastle University

Newcastle University is a research-intensive university founded on the principles of the Civic University which means we apply our academic expertise and research to addressing some of society’s most profound challenges.

Today, our efforts focus on three major issues or ‘societal challenges’ – ageing, social renewal and sustainability – that impact, not just on Newcastle, but on the UK and the world. Our aim is to put our academic knowledge, creativity and expertise to work, to arrive at innovations and solutions that make a difference to individuals, organisations and to society as a whole.
