About us

We’re located in a quiet residential area only a few miles from Birmingham City Centre, which creates a tranquil and focused learning environment for students. Birmingham City Centre is just a short drive away and on excellent bus routes.

Being founded as recently as 1968, the buildings are modern and purpose-built. The campus is arranged around a series of inner quadrangles of lawns and trees. Halls of residence provide bedrooms for over 200 students, conveniently adjacent to the teaching areas and well-stocked library. The Students’ Union provides a warm welcome at the heart of the campus.

In February 2023, Newman University officially opened its new £3 million School of Nursing and Allied Health. It includes state-of-the art facilities including a clinical simulation suite and an immersive lab to recreate the experience of working in a busy health care environment.

With just under 3,000 students from a variety of backgrounds, Newman is becoming an increasingly popular place to study.

What makes us different

Ensuring the degrees offered are relevant to the modern world is also a key feature at Newman. All full-time degrees have a work engagment module and an important part of the curriculum is developing transferable skills useful for further study or employment after graduation. Many of the courses at Newman are developed in consultation with employers to ensure the course content is relevant and provides transferable skills valued by graduate employers.

As a student-centred University, Newman’s challenging yet supportive learning environment will enable you to engage with theories and concepts, discuss ideas with your tutors and become independent learners and creative thinkers able to make a difference in the world.

We’re a friendly community of staff and students, and our small class sizes mean that academic staff can give personal care and attention to each student.
