Partners Scheme

The School of Biomedical, Nutritional and Sport Sciences takes part in the Partners programme supported entry route.

Get involved

The Partners Programme is a residential summer school. It provides a supportive boost to eligible participants on their Higher Education journey. We're looking for students that show the potential to succeed at Newcastle.

On passing the scheme, you will receive a conditional offer that is lower than a typical offer.

What we offer

The 5-day programme takes the form of a typical university teaching experience. You'll take part in practical sessions, lectures, and tutorials.

When you arrive, we provide you with a research problem. During the week, you'll work towards a solution. You'll have the support of academic staff, the School's technical team, and postgraduate students.

Your assessment mirrors the experience of our first-year undergraduate students. It comprises:

  • an online examination
  • completion of a practical handbook
  • writing a short piece of scientific prose
