Introduced as University of Newcastle upon Tyne, the school began operations with its School of Medicine and Surgery in 1834. Besides its 184-year legacy in the field of medicine, the university was also the first medical school in the UK to deliver an integrated medical curriculum with a modern and system-based approach. Newcastle University is also considered as one of the prestigious group of red-brick universities.

Also, the university is now gearing up to make its way to be on the list among world-leading educational institutions. A world top 200 university according to the World University Rankings 2018 by Times Higher Education, Newcastle University is also ranked among the top 1% universities worldwide, Besides that, the university is one of only 18 universities in the world and two in the UK to achieve five plus QS Stars from QS, Quacquarelli Symonds. It also made it to the top 100 universities in the world in the QS World University Rankings by Subject 2019.

The strength of this university lies in its teaching and research excellence. A recipient of the Teaching Education Framework (TEF) Gold Medal, the university has been recognised time and again for its outstanding teaching quality, learning environment and student outcome. The university is consistently active in conducting research relevant to the current issues of the global society, and was the first in the UK to receive permission to pursue stem-cell research. Besides that, this university also had many ground-breaking discoveries in diverse areas such as Ageing, Genetic Medicines and Neurosciences.
