- Newcastle's Central Station is about three hours from London King's Cross on the east coast main line.
- The city is easily accessible by the A1 from the north and south and by the A69 from the west.
- Newcastle International Airport is only seven miles from the city centre.

PG CaféPG Café
We have a series of student-led PG Café events coming up and we'd love to see you there.
Each PG Café has a theme, such as 'Ways to Fund Your Studies' and 'Applying to Newcastle'. Our PG Cafés provide a great opportunity to:
- chat informally to our current students
- find out about postgraduate studentships, funding and how to apply
- get a real insight into life as a postgraduate student
- have a cup of tea and slice of cake!
- see our campus
Our current students come from a range of taught courses and research degrees and will be able to share their general experiences about life as a postgraduate student and answer any questions you might have. As we have over 300 postgraduate courses on offer, we can’t guarantee that there will be a student from your chosen course at the event.
Our 2016-17 PG Café series includes:
Ways to Fund Your Studies - 6 April 2017 (16.30 - 18.00)
Becoming a Postgrad Researcher - 8 June 2017 (13.00 - 14.30)
If you are unable to meet us in person, join us at a virtual event instead.
