Newcastle University holds open days for prospective undergraduate students in the Summer and Autumn of each year.
On the day, there'll be a variety of activities to help you find out about the University, student life and the city. You'll also have the opportunity to discuss your options with staff and students from the school.

Post application visit days
After you apply, you'll be invited to a post application visit day at your school. This visit day is an opportunity to talk to our admissions team, teaching staff and current undergraduate students.
We'll happy to answer any questions you might have about our courses, the university, and what it's like living in Newcastle. Students and staff will give talks on the essentials of student life here and the activities of the School of Mathematics and Statistics. You'll be shown around the school and the campus by our students, and taken on a tour of the city and accommodation.
