    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at University of Northumbria full-time (More than 3 years)


    This university is a new university in England with very beautiful campus and very advanced equipment. Newcastle is a really nice city for students to study and live.


    The ranking of this university is not very high due to it is a new university. Therefore, the research funding maybe not very much compared to some old good universities.

    Advice to Management

    To hire more young researchers who are full of passion to do the research and teaching. It must be useful for the university to get a better ranking.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at University of Northumbria (Newcastle, England (UK)) in November 2014.


    Completed application form (no CVs accepted). This took a bit of cut and paste time! About a month later HR contacted me to invite me for interview and gave links to appropriate sections of website to review/prepare. Was interviewed by 3 people who all focussed on different aspects of the job specification. Took about 45mins I would say.
