We are named after our patron, Blessed John Henry Newman, who was a Cardinal of the Catholic Church and Beatified in September 2010 by Pope Benedict XVI.
Newman has an excellent record for the quality of its courses and consistently has one of the best graduate employment rates of UK colleges and universities. In recent years very positive inspection reports have been received from the QAA and OFSTED, including an 'outstanding' grade, the highest possible, for its latest inspection for Employment Based Initial Teacher Training (Graduate Teacher Programme). Reports frequently highlight the positive experience of students and individual attention offered by Newman's staff. It was also the UK's top ranked University College in The Guardian's University Guide 2009.
