Your Wellbeing

With professionally trained staff and millions of pounds invested into our dedicated support network - we prioritise your wellbeing so you can maximise your potential while you are with us.

We aim to support all students to get the most from their life at University

Confidential, free help and advice is available on anything from student finance to immigration and more general student support questions.

Our Student Wellbeing Service also provides tailored support for you. Any needs from special requirements relating to a disability, mobility issues or a specific learning difficulty, such as dyslexia, will be supported.

We can work together to plan your support from the moment you complete your application, and are always happy to answer your questions.

Information is also available about local doctors, dental practices other local health service providers. Independent personal support is also provided by the Student Advice Centre, run by the Students' Union.

Information about the University can be offered in an alternative format, for example Braille, large print or audiotape. Use our enquiries form to get in touch.

Mature Students

While the average age of our postgraduates is 35, we regularly have people in their 40s, 50s and 60s studying at Newcastle. Once you have arrived, your specific support includes a mature student orientation programme. This is held before the start of term so you can meet other mature students.

World Faiths

Most major world faiths are represented on campus, with Chaplains based in the University Chaplaincy and regular services of worship on campus. A number of student-led religious societies also operate from the Students' Union.
