They may help you directly or refer you to another relevant support service oulined above. You meet at the beginning of each semester, and regularly at other times.

You will be required to provide evidence of your English language ability before beginning your programme. We recognize the difficulties International students face working in what is in most cases a foreign language. We therefore try to give as much additional help as possible.

International Students can contact our International Office for more information and advice about studying at Newcastle.
