Having graduated from Newcastle University in 2012 after studying English and History of Art, Princess Eugenie, who is eighth in line to the throne, unveiled a new sculpture created by artist Joseph Hillier, also a graduate of the university, to mark the opening.

The new campus in London will offer full- and part-time undergraduate and postgraduate programmes and will be a base for Newcastle University’s triple-accredited Business School and Continuing Executive and Professional Development programmes.

Professor Chris Brink, Vice-Chancellor of Newcastle University, said, “Having a base in one of the most popular cities in the world complements Newcastle University’s reputation for academic excellence.

“This exciting new development reinforces our international profile, and will deliver top-quality opportunities with an international focus.”

Professor Amanda Broderick, Chief Executive Officer at Newcastle University London, added, “We are working hand-in-hand with businesses in the capital and globally to develop graduates with the enviable skills and knowledge that top employers demand.”

Newcastle University London is a joint venture with INTO University Partnerships. Andrew Colin, Founder and Owner of INTO Partnerships, said, “We are enormously proud of our long-standing partnership with Newcastle University and delighted to support this exciting new campus in London.”
