A university asking the questions that matter

At Northumbria University, we’re tackling real world questions for real world impact. We live in a changing and increasingly challenging world and we need to find new and innovative ways of dealing with the issues. By sharing knowledge and expertise, our researchers are seeking innovative solutions to some of the world’s greatest challenges.

Our academics, students, education and business partners, are all part of an exciting community working together to conduct ground-breaking research across eight multi-disciplinary research themes, creating a lasting impact regionally, nationally and internationally.

The Changing Challenging World campaign celebrates the research that makes a difference. There’s a real buzz about research at Northumbria. Our track record and recent REF results mean that we are in a stronger position than ever to lead the debate and respond to today’s challenges.

If you want to work with us to shape tomorrow’s solutions, we’d love to hear from you. Join in the conversation and share your views on the real world questions we’re addressing through our research.
