Taking into consideration the environmental impact and sustainable business practices, along with a highly skilled workforce, are critical to business success which is why Newman University College is proud to sponsor the Environmental, Recycling and Sustainability award at this year’s Birmingham Post Business Awards.
Newman University College is firmly focused on developing graduates with exceptional critical thinking skills and well-developed values who are able to make an impact in business.
Newman’s approach is to challenge and support students to be independent learners who question and apply the knowledge they gain on their degree, providing the skills valued by graduate employers.
It is these qualities which enables Newman to have one of the best graduate employment rates of UK universities, 93 per cent last year.
Work placements are an important element of all degree courses at Newman.
In addition to applying knowledge to real-world scenarios, Newman students gain graduate level work experience before seeking their first job. Undertaking undergraduate and postgraduate level study represents a significant investment in both time and money. Newman has developed a range of part-time degree courses which enable students to combine working longer hours whilst only taking one additional year to complete the course.
These courses have the dual benefit of reducing the level of debt students accrue whilst studying through lower fees and additional earning opportunities and gaining work experience to boost the student’s CV.
A student-centred University College, Newman is investing over £20 million in a new library building to ensure future students have the best facilities in which to study. Degrees from Newman are designed to develop the whole person; someone who can innovate, research and make things happen not simply learn facts, figures and theories.
Recognised primarily for teacher training the portfolio has expanded significantly in recent years to include diverse subjects such as IT, Business and Management, Creative Arts, Psychology, History, Theology and Youth Work.
Newman also supports local companies through consultancy, knowledge transfer, CPD and short courses, bespoke education and training or accreditation for higher level in-house training.
