New sculpture unveiled
To mark the opening, Her Royal Highness unveiled a new sculpture especially commissioned for the new campus and met with students and staff.
Princess Eugenie is herself a graduate of Newcastle University, having studied English and History of Art there. The sculpture, entitled ‘Critical Mass’, has been created by artist Joseph Hillier, also a graduate of the University.
Newcastle University London, based in Middlesex Street in central London, provides full and part-time undergraduate and postgraduate study programmes for students from all over the world.
It also provides a London base for Newcastle University’s triple-accredited Business School and the University’s Continuing Executive and Professional Development programmes.
The London Campus is part of the University’s global network – alongside its campuses in Singapore and Malaysia. Offering students, alumni and staff increased links to global business, industry and governments, it supports the University’s mission to focus on not only what it is good at, but also, what it is good for.
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.”
