On Thursday, the 1st of September, The Times Higher Education (THE) 2022 University of the Year nominations were released. For the first time, two universities, Newcastle University and Northumbria University, from the same city, outside of London, have appeared on the shortlist.
Northumbria University recorded the biggest rise in research power of any other UK university for the second time in the Research Excellence Framework (2021). On the other hand, Newcastle University has been acknowledged for its Environmental Justice and Social Justice values. This was in response to students calling for their university to be at the forefront of addressing the climate emergency.
The other four universities were Edinburgh Napier University, Loughborough University, University of Plymouth and Sheffield Hallam University.
The University of the Year winner will be revealed at the Times Higher Education (THE) Awards ceremony in London on 17 November 2022.
