We are committed to student engagement and the importance of working with students as partners to enhance the higher education learning experience.
Our Higher Education Partnership Strategy has been co-authored by students and staff to outline how our higher education provision will be shaped through partnership working over the coming years.
The strategy provides a framework and platform for engaging with our students to promote a range of opportunities for students to engage in educational enhancement and quality assurance. This includes our Student Fellowship Programme, which provides funded opportunities for undergraduates and postgraduates to support enhancement projects in partnership with staff.

Research and Scholarly Activity
Research and scholarship are fundamental to higher education. We encourage staff and students to develop as researchers and provide the necessary resources and support for both to excel.
Relevant to industry
Newcastle College has a strong record in conducting successful research projects, particularly in partnership with employers and industry. Teaching and learning is enriched by the latest research and scholarship. This means that our qualifications are seen as current and valuable by industry and employers, with whom many of our courses have been developed.
As a student at Newcastle College you’ll be encouraged to broaden your research skills by developing and leading your own projects within a supportive academic atmosphere. We offer opportunities and support for students to communicate their findings to a wide audience, including a dedicated Higher Education Student Conference which acts as a showcase for student projects.
You will also have the ability to contribute to the future direction of our research and scholarship through the student representatives on our Research and Scholarly Activity Committee.
NCG is committed to ensuring that all research conducted by staff and students conforms to the highest ethical standards. Our institutional research ethics policy embeds the six key principles outlined in the Economic and Social Research Council Framework for Research Ethics (2012):
Our ethical approval process is overseen by the institutional Research Ethics Committee and supported by the individual School Ethics Committees. Full guidance and training are provided for students and staff seeking ethical approval for research projects.
