Newcastle University was set up in 1834 originally as the School of Medicine and Surgery, and is set in a beautiful 45-acre site. Since then, the University has undergone substantial modernization, with a new medical school, dental school and Robinson Library, as well as preserving its historical colleges.
Newcastle had been a cultural and commercial centre of the North for over 2,000 years, and its beautiful scenery and modern vibe shows why it attracts over 200,000 visitors a year. The campus is just a few minutes away from Newcastle city centre, home to the famous Newcastle United football club. There are museums, all manner of shops, restaurants, fashionable eateries and art galleries. It has fast rail connection to Edinburgh and London.
