Northumbria University Awarded THE University of the Year 2022

Northumbria University has been named University of the Year 2022 in the prestigious Times Higher Education (THE) Awards. The THE Awards are widely recognised as the 'Oscars of higher education'. The impressive win recognises exceptional performance, as well as bold, imaginative and innovative initiatives that have advanced a Higher Education institution’s reputation during the academic year 2020/21.

It marks Northumbria’s remarkable transformation to become the UK’s first research-intensive modern university. The strategy, which began in 2008, embedded quality research at the centre of everything that the University does, alongside a clear social mobility mission, and alignment to business and the demands of the regional and local economy. It aims to give all students with potential and ability, the opportunity to benefit from a Northumbria education. 

Northumbria currently offers top-up degree programmes in collaboration with SHAPE in Business, Health and Life Sciences, and Hospitality, Tourism and Leisure study areas.
