Newcastle University Ranking Update

17 June 2022


We are delighted to announce that Newcastle University has achieved its highest ever placing in the QS World University Rankings. In the 2023 rankings, published on 8th June, they have been ranked #122, up 12 places from the previous year. The ranking also places Newcastle in the top 20 UK Universities.

The QS Rankings are one of the most important to prospective students as it puts a strong weighting on Employability. Newcastle scores very highly for Employer Reputation, ranking 65th globally, based on survey responses from more than 99,000 employers about the relationship between the institution and graduate employability.

This is a result that Newcastle University is very proud of, and they have thanked SI-UK for our efforts in recruiting fantastic North American students to Newcastle, helping to maintain their academic reputation. 

"Our highest ever position and strong performance are testaments to the quality and impact of our teaching and research. I am proud and grateful for the hard work and dedication of all University colleagues."

- Professor Chris Day, Newcastle University Vice-Chancellor and President 

The area that has seen the University’s highest climb is Citations per Faculty, reflecting the quality and impact of Newcastle University’s research.

A new category introduced by the QS this year, which is expected to become a weighted measure from next year’s edition of the rankings, is the International Research Network (IRN) Index. It is calculated from the number of international locations where universities have long-standing research collaborations. At 39th globally, the International Research Network is the strongest indicator for Newcastle University.
