Described as some of the best campus sport facilities in the country and rated 'top 5' in the country by the recent Times Higher Educations Student Experience Survey 2014.

The Department of Sport, Exercise and Rehabilitation boast facilities for teaching & learning that rival any in the world. Predominantly housed in Sport Central, a new £30 million pound purpose-built sports building, these include an indoor 40-metre sprint track, a range of state-of-the-art sport science laboratories and an environmental chamber that allows students and researchers the opportunity to manipulate environmental conditions to mimic anywhere in the world. These facilities are complemented by multi-functional learning spaces, and afford our students hands-on experience to enhance their development as researchers and practitioners.

The Department also prides itself on the Clinical Skills Centre, which is the focal point for our Health students’ educational journey. The Skills Centre is a place where our students can develop practical skills and gain valuable experience of real hospital situations in simulated scenarios. This provides our students with a learning experience aligned with developments in the modernisation of healthcare delivery.

Newcastle Clinic

NCL-Clinic -lo -res -logoSince 2016, Newcastle Clinic has been working with Northumbria University to offer diagnostic MRI scans to the university’s elite athletes. Newcastle Clinic is home to the region’s only open MRI scanner, designed to make scans more comfortable for large framed/athletic people, as well as overweight and claustrophobic patients. As a private clinic, Newcastle Clinic is able to see patients, and offer diagnostic results, far more quickly than the NHS can. Newcastle Clinic also offers discounts on diagnostic scans to around 5,000 members of the university’s sports teams.
