Our Staff

Our students learn from the best – inspirational academic staff with a genuine passion for their subject. Our courses are at the forefront of current knowledge and practice and are shaped by world-leading and internationally excellent research.

Our staff's talent is also recognised by others.   Northumbria is now rated in the top 20 in the UK in eleven subjects, and in the top five in three subjects, by the Complete University Guide 2015.

Between 2008 and 2014 we doubled the number of our academic staff submitted for research assessment. We encourage early-career researchers and have a distinctive appeal based on academic excellence, entrepreneurialism and innovation. Our academics balance teaching, research and working with external organisations.

Our professional staff ensure the smooth delivery of the University’s activities. Their work contributes to an outstanding student experience, supports research and underpins successful partnerships and collaborative working with external organisations.
