Read the latest issue of Northumbria University News: Spring 2023 edition!

29th March 2023

The Spring 2023 edition of Northumbria University’s newspaper is available to collect on campus or read online now.

Packed with the latest news, achievements, features and interviews, the newspaper is the perfect way to keep up to date with the exciting developments taking place across the University.

Enclosed with this issue you will also find a special 12-page supplement, A University Transformed, which celebrates Northumbria being named University of the Year in the Times Higher Education Awards 2022. This celebratory publication follows Northumbria’s journey over the last 15 years and its transformation into a research-intensive university that takes on tomorrow’s challenges to make a positive difference, while at the same time maintaining its clear focus on social mobility. It celebrates the work of our staff, students, and partners – all of whom contributed to the University winning this prestigious award.

In this first issue of 2023, we share exciting plans for Northumbria’s Centre for Health and Social Equity (CHASE) – a brand new, state-of-the-art hub featuring world-class clinical skills facilities, labs, and teaching space, which will be situated within the University’s City Campus.

This edition covers all the latest research news, including a solar scientist using artificial intelligence to predict space storms, a sustainable plastic alternative developed by Northumbria engineers, a life-changing device to support Parkinson’s patients, and work to eradicate the use of torture during police interviews around the world.

Other must-read stories include student sporting success in women’s rugby and women’s goalball, business start-ups setting new fashion trends, and a talented technician adapting clothing for children receiving vital treatment in hospital.

Read the Spring 2023 edition online now, along with all previous issues of Northumbria News.
