     In 1937, the Newcastle colleges combined to establish King's College. Following an Act of Parliament, King's College renamed the University of Newcastle upon Tyne in 1963.

    The university is divided into three faculties: the Humanities and Social Sciences Faculty, the Medical Sciences Faculty, and the Science, Agriculture, and Engineering Faculty. The university provides around 175 full-time undergraduate degree programs in various subject areas encompassing arts, sciences, engineering, and medicine, as well as approximately 340 postgraduate teaching and research programs in various disciplines.
