International Student Tutor
You bring vibrancy and a wealth of experience to our Law School community and we've developed services specific to international students to match.
Central to these services is the International Student Tutor, a member of staff dedicated to supporting international undergraduates.
Miss Lida Pitsillidou has drawn upon her personal experience as a former international student to develop a unique support structure, the International Student Intensive Guidance and Development Programme.
Intensive Guidance & Development Programme
The programme provides for additional academic sessions held once every week during the academic calendar.
It runs throughout the first year of your time at Newcastle Law School and is intended to facilitate your academic, social and cultural transition into this new learning environment.
Since the inception of this Programme, pass rates for our international students have improved dramatically.
One-to-one Student Mentoring
We have pioneered the idea of relying upon our existing students to provide additional support for our international students.
Under the Student Mentoring Scheme all international students will receive support from a trained student mentor, providing a friendly and informal point of contact to help you settle into life in Newcastle.
The mentoring scheme was initiated as a pilot project in September 2008 and the feedback received by both mentors and mentees have been so positive that this programme will become a tier of the International Student Intensive Guidance and Development Programme.
In 2008, the Law School's Internal Subject Review commended the peer mentoring scheme as exemplary practice.
We welcome applications from Canadian candidates who wish to read for a three year LLB degree at Newcastle University.
