The term New University has been used informally to refer to several different waves of new university movements in the United Kingdommarker. As early as 1928, the term was used to describe the then-new civic universities, such as Bristol Universitymarker and the other "red brick" universities. It would later come to be used to refer to any of the universities founded in the 1960s after the Robbins Report on higher education. These institutions are now known as "plate glass" universities. Today, the term specifically relates instead to any of the former polytechnics, Central Institutions or colleges of higher education that were given the status of universities by John Major's government in 1992 — as well as colleges that have been granted university status since then. These institutions may also be described as post-1992 universities or modern universities.

Post-1992 universities formerly designated "Polytechnic Universities"

Post-1992 (or "modern") universities not formerly designated "Polytechnics"

Both categories of university award academic degrees having received university status when the Further and Higher Education Act 1992 came into effect or in the years thereafter.
