Prospective undergraduates

You will be aware of the ever growing concern around the spread of the Coronavirus.

Over the past few weeks, we have been following advice and guidance from Public Health England and have come to the difficult decision to suspend all large scale events, including Offer Holder Days. This is in line with the government’s efforts to delay the spread of the virus.

You will be contacted in the near future regarding any alternative provision. We will be working with colleagues across the University to try and build more engagement on our online platforms.

Please ensure that you check your emails regularly for any further information.

Newcastle University holds Open Days for prospective undergraduate students in the Summer and Autumn each year. There's a variety of activities to help you find out about the University, student life and the city.

The School also holds Offer Holder Days each year for applicants in receipt of an offer. You'll meet staff and current students and be able to look around the School. You are usually given a choice of dates to attend, which are normally between February and April. To find out when these are, please contact the School. Further details on how to register for these will be sent to you after you have received an offer.
