QS Best Student Cities ranking: =57th

Newcastle (or Newcastle-upon-Tyne), the largest city in north-east England is diverse, vibrant and welcoming. Named after the Norman castle of the city center, the city’s history spans from the Roman period to its time as an important industrial center for coalmining, engineering and shipping during the 19th century. Newcastle’s aptitude for engineering continues to this day, with award-winning structures such as the Gateshead Millennium Bridge.

The thriving cultural hub of the Quayside (the banks of the River Tyne) is home to many restaurants, bars, night clubs and public spaces, combining the best of the city and nearby town Gateshead. The city also annually hosts the world's largest half marathon, the Great North Run. Residents from Newcastle and the surrounding area are dubbed ‘Geordies’, as is the distinctive local dialect, which is the closest language to 1,500-year-old Anglo-Saxon left in England.

Three universities featured in the QS World University Rankings® 2020 are located in or close to Newcastle. These include the nearby Durham University – about a half hour drive away – which is ranked joint 78th in the world and is a member of the prestigious ‘Russell Group’ (an association of leading research universities).

Right in the heart of Newcastle city center, and in close proximity to one another, are Newcastle University and Northumbria University at Newcastle – both of which also feature in the world university rankings.

Newcastle achieves a very high score (21st) in the Student Mix indicator of the QS Best Student Cities ranking, thanks to its large student population and high percentage of international enrolments, making for a multicultural student experience.
