If your son or daughter is accepted onto a course at Newcastle,we will do everything we can to help them adjust to university life as soon as possible.
They will receive a copy of our Pre-Arrival Information booklet, which details everything they need to know about registering at Newcastle University. They will also receive information about the range of social activities that are available to help them settle in.
Freshers’ Week, organised by students, is an excellent introduction to student life in Newcastle with a variety of events to suit everyone’s taste, and is a great way of making new friends. Over 300 student volunteers are involved in looking after new students, ensuring they’re included in what’s going on, and helping with any concerns or queries.
Our student volunteers will even ‘meet and greet’ students arriving in Newcastle and at University accommodation to make sure they know where to go.
This friendly, supportive welcome ensures that our students can relax and settle in before teaching starts, and look forward to the year ahead.
University is a fantastic experience, and we want our students to enjoy every minute at Newcastle!
Our integrated support services provide specialist assistance to students on a wide range of issues, from finance to accommodation and emotional wellbeing.
Our tutorial system ensures that students progress through their studies in a supportive environment. From the start of their course, students are assigned a personal tutor who monitors their progress and meets to discuss any academic or personal concerns they may have.
The Disability Support team, which is part of Student Wellbeing provides confidential,
individual advice for current and prospective
students, including information about the
University’s facilities and, if appropriate, advice
about applying for Disabled Students’ Allowances.
If your son or daughter has a disability, or a specific learning difficulty, one of our advisers will be happy to discuss any additional support
they may require.
