Northumbria University in Newcastle has announced the launch of a London campus.
From September, the London campus will offer industry-based programmes at postgraduate and undergraduate level. Northumbria is 8th among English universities for the percentage of graduates placed in professional employment, and in the top 4 in the UK for graduate start-ups.
– Professor Andrew Wathey, Vice-Chancellor and Chief Executive of Northumbria University
“Our new campus means we can offer our students the opportunity to study in two of the UK’s top cities for students, Newcastle and London. Its location in the centre of a global city will appeal to our growing international community and to home-based students, whose educational experience will be bolstered by the rich and diverse industry links that the capital offers.”
The new campus is in London’s financial district.
