Excellent Quality

Newman has an excellent record for the quality of its courses and consistently has one of the best graduate employment rates of UK colleges and universities. In recent years very positive inspection reports have been received from the QAA and OFSTED, including an 'outstanding' grade, the highest possible, for its latest inspection for Employment Based Initial Teacher Training (Graduate Teacher Programme).

Reports frequently highlight the positive experience of students and individual attention offered by Newman’s staff.  It was also the UK's top ranked University College in The Guardian's University Guide 2009.

Convenient Location

Situated on the outskirts of south west Birmingham, Newman's campus is based in Bartley Green, some 8 miles from the city centre and overlooks Bartley reservoir and the Worcestershire countryside beyond. Its location makes it convenient for access to both the M5 and M42 motorways.

Friendly Community

As a small University College, Newman is committed to providing excellent student support and welcoming new students into our friendly community. Class sizes are small and lecturers are able to give students greater individual support. Newman’s history and reputation for teacher training ensures that lecturers understand the importance of teaching and enabling a quality learning experience for students.

Good Graduate Employment

Ensuring the degrees offered are relevant to the modern world is also a key feature at Newman. All full-time degrees have a work placement 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. Newman has one of the best graduate employment rates of UK universities and was ranked in the top 20 in The Sunday Times University Guide 2010.

 

A Modern Campus

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 single study-bedrooms for some 206 students, conveniently adjacent to the teaching areas and well-stocked library. Over £20 million is being invested on improving the campus for students, including a vibrant new-build entrance and state-of-the-art library, creating a modern and attractive learning environment.

Sporting Tradition

Over the years a strong sporting tradition has developed in Newman: there is a large sports hall, a gymnasium, squash courts, all-weather sports pitch and a health and fitness centre on site. Newman attracts students from all parts of the United Kingdom and beyond. Over the years students from many different backgrounds have studied here and have enriched our communal life. Newman University College promotes equality of opportunity for every member of Newman community in all aspects of the life and work of Newman.

 

Commitment to the Environment

Newman is working hard to create a sustainable campus and is utilising the latest technology to control energy consumption and achieve our carbon reduction targets by 2015.

Commitment to Fairtrade

Newman is committed to promoting the broader understanding and awareness of Fairtrade, poverty and the developing world. As a University College we wish to broaden the global perspectives of the communities we work with, including its 400 partnership schools throughout the West Midlands. Achieving Fairtrade status reflects Newman’s mission which is based on respect for others, social justice and equity.
