Students who select Newcastle University as their Firm choice with UCAS, meet our entrance requirements and are not in the Foundation Year or fully sponsored by a government or company, are eligible to receive the School Scholarship.
In order to receive the School Scholarship in subsequent years, students must achieve 55% and above in their stage average for the previous academic year.
Students within the School are encouraged to apply for sponsorship with engineering companies to support them financially during their academic studies and gain useful work experience. Examples of companies offering sponsorship opportunities are the E3 Academy, Tridonic and Sevcon.
Students registered on an MEng degree programmes are required to undertake an industrial placement between the end of Stage 3 and by the Christmas vacation of Stage 4. If you are interested in undergoing any other training or doing work experience alongside your studies, you are welcome to consult your personal tutor for advice.
If you wish to change your degree programme, please contact the Undergraduate Degree Programme Director (Dr Graeme Chester) to discuss this. If moving from a BEng to an MEng degree programme, you will need to have a stage average of 55% and above. If the DPD approves your request, you will need to complete a 'DPD Request Form', which you can get from the School Office. This will need to be signed by the DPD. The Undergraduate Secretary will then arrange the transfer on your behalf.
In order to change your modules, please collect a Module Amendment Form from the School Office. Once completed, this will need to be signed by your Personal Tutor and the Undergraduate Degree Programme Director (Dr Graeme Chester). Please note module changes can only be made up until the end of the second week of teaching of each semester.
Please collect a PEC form from the School Office to request an extension submitting any evidence you think appropriate to support your request.
The Personal Extenuating Circumstances Form is the form students complete when they are experiencing personal problems which they believe could affect their studies. This one form is a way of informing the School of the issues you are experiencing and for you to request a number of different adjustments, such as an extension, exemptions, deferrals or Board of Examiners discretion. Students can submit any documents which they think are relevant to support their application.
The School will notify students of the date that exam results will be ready to access on S3P, prior to the exams taking place. The School Office does not produce exam results for students to collect.
If students wish to discuss a particular exam paper, they should contact the module leader of the exam concerned to arrange an appointment. This may only be done by sending an email request to the module leader of the module concerned after the publication of results. If feedback on more than one module is required, a separate request must be sent for each module. The deadline for submitting such requests will be one week after the publication of results.
If you fail some modules, you will need to wait for the Board of Examiners to decide what they think should happen.
In most cases failed modules will lead to a resit, which usually takes place in the August. Occasionally you will be able to go into the next year and 'carry' a failed module (no more than 20 credits of non-core). Resit marks will be capped at 40%.
As every student is different, we would recommend that you take advice from your Personal Tutor after the Board of Examiners.
If you experience any difficulties, you are welcome to discuss these with your Personal Tutor, the Stage Tutor, the Undergraduate Degree Programme Director, School Management Staff or administrative staff in the School Office. The University's Student Wellbeing Service also offers a range of services which aim to support students during their time here in order to ensure successful completion of their studies. Their services are available throughout the year and are completely free and confidential.
The Institute of Engineering Technology encourages students to become members in order for you to engage with the global engineering and technology community. More information can be found on the IET website
The School will pay for student membership during your first year of study within the school.
If you wish to become a course representative, you can contact either your Personal or Stage Tutor or the Undergraduate Secretary in the School Office.

There are several possible reasons for this
In EEE we have dedicated computer and lab equipment for EEE (and also PHY) module takers. If you get presented with the above error message at login it means you may not be listed as 'fully registered'. This may be because you are not registered on any EEE or PHY modules or you have optional modules which require confirmation. To confirm your module choices you will need to login to S3P. These screen shots show a typical S3P session to confirm module choices. Other reasons for not being classed as 'fully registered' include fee problems and smartcard collection issues.
Occasionally the message detailed (or similar) may mean that your account has been suspended either by ISS (over the whole University) or EEE (within Merz Court) - you should contact EEE IT if you feel that this is your problem.
