The Student Services website contains comprehensive information concerning your life as a student at Newcastle University. Our Student Wellbeing Service provides information, advice and support on a wide range of student support issues to help you maximise your potential whilst at University. For example, we offer support for students with disabilities, and information and advice relating to childcare, funding and international scholarships, support for life matters - advice and information on health matters including emotional and psychological health needs, counselling, life skills development, access to mental health support and information on faith and religious provision. There is also help for mature students. The service is free, confidential and available to all.
Although most of our students complete their studies without any personal problems getting in the way, every so often you might find yourself in need of a friendly ear, or someone to help you with a difficult personal problem. When you arrive as a new undergraduate at Newcastle, you will be assigned to a personal tutor. Your tutor is your personal link with the University and is usually someone involved in the teaching of your degree programme. Your tutor can advise and support you in academic and non-academic matters. You can go to them at any time for advice and help, whether about choice of modules, finance or any other University matter. They may help you directly or refer you to another relevant support service outlined above. You meet at the beginning of each semester, and regularly at other times.
