There are many ways you can visit us: on and off-campus.
We update these pages with event information throughout the year. We have our own Open Day on-campus and we attend various off-campus events around the UK and internationally.
If you are interested in one of our research programmes, we'd encourage you to visit and meet with your potential supervisor. Your proposed academic school or research institute will be able to help you with this.
Coming to visit us is a great way to experience what Newcastle University is about.
Postgraduate Open Days

School and institute open days
Throughout the year some academic schools and institutes run open days. At these events you can:

You may be able to arrange a visit that is not part of a scheduled open day. Research students in particular are encouraged to visit and meet with their potential supervisor. Contact your proposed academic school or research institute to find out if this is possible.
