If you attend one of the University's Partners Schools and Colleges you may be eligible to receive a lower conditional offer from the University. An important part of this process includes the successful completion of an eight day Assessed Summer School.
During this period you will develop your study skills and learn about University life. You will also attend six 2-hour academic sessions, and complete assessed homework, on a broad range of topics in chemistry that introduce you to subjects beyond the school curriculum. You will find that attendance at the Summer School gives you extra confidence when entering your first year.
The PARTNERS Programme Supported Entry Route is intended for people who have the potential to succeed at Newcastle University but who, for a variety of reasons, may not feel confident about applying, or are not sure that university is for them. Students must fulfil certain eligibility criteria in order to take part.
The PARTNERS Summer School programme in the School of Chemistry is coordinated by Dr Eimer Tuite and gives the opportunity for potential undergraduate students to engage in a number of scientific sessions within the School. A range of interesting and topical issues will be covered by Eimer herself, Dr Celine Cano, Dr Mike Carroll, Dr Peter Hoare, Prof Bernard Golding and Dr Zuleykha McMillan.
