Short description of the company
Newman University

Being founded as recently as 1968, the buildings are modern and purpose-built. The campus is arranged around a series of inner quadrangles of lawns and trees. Halls of residence provide single study-bedrooms for over 200 students, conveniently adjacent to the teaching areas and well-stocked library. Over £20 million has been invested on improving the campus for students, including a vibrant new-build entrance and state-of-the-art library, creating a modern and attractive learning environment.

Situated on the outskirts of south west Birmingham, Newman's campus is based in Bartley Green some 8 miles (13 km) from the city centre, and overlooks Bartley reservoir and the Worcestershire countryside beyond

The Catholic ethos provides the clear underpinning of our mission. Newman University is committed to its motto ‘ex umbris in veritatem’ (out of the shadow into truth) and therefore provides high quality, accessible academic and professional education based on respect for others, social justice and equity. As a Catholic University, we seek to make a positive difference to individuals and communities through the contribution of our staff, students and graduates.
