Newcastle University entered into a joint venture partnership with INTO in February 2007 in order to build its international profile and increase access to ambitious students from around the world. The University has enjoyed significant success since the partnership launch.
There has been a 211% increase in the total number of international students studying at the University - growing faster than the Russell Group and nearly two times faster than the UK higher education sector average. The number of new undergraduate international students has grown by 431% since 2006. More than 11,000 students have progressed from INTO Newcastle University to further study.
