Newcastle University - Employer

Newcastle University is a public research university in Newcastle upon Tyne in the North-East of England. The university can trace its origins to a School of Medicine and Surgery, established in 1834, and to the College of Physical Science, founded in 1871. These two colleges came to form one division of the federal University of Durham, with the Durham Colleges forming the other. The Newcastle colleges merged to form King’S College in 1937. In 1963, following an Act of Parliament, King’s College became the University of Newcastle upon Tyne.
