The 25-year-old royal - who is an English and History of Art graduate from the education establishment - was on hand to unveil a sculpture made by one of the university's alumni in honour of the new facilities.

Professor Amanda Broderick, chief executive officer at Newcastle University London, said: "Home to extraordinary interactions, intellectual breakthroughs and exhilarating career pathways, Newcastle University London provides students and staff with increased links to national and international businesses in one of the world's most important financial centres.

"We are working hand-in-hand with businesses in the Capital and globally to develop graduates with the enviable skills and knowledge that top employers demand. Supporting the progression of students into leading positions across a variety of global industries and sectors is at the heart of what we do.

"With a unique professions-facing mission, the state-of-the-art facilities, technology and cutting edge knowledge eco-system of the London campus brings the best of Newcastle University to the capital."

The new campus is one of four worldwide - including study centres in Malaysia and Singapore.

Of their new home in England's capital, Professor Chris Brink, the vice-chancellor of Newcastle University, added: "Having a base in one of the most popular cities in the world complements Newcastle University's reputation for academic excellence. This exciting new development reinforces our international profile, and will deliver top-quality opportunities with an international focus."
