We recognise that visiting a department, university and city can be a very valuable step in helping inform your degree choice. To help support you in the process, we provide a series of opportunities for prospective students and guests to visit us.

University Open Days (pre-applicants)

Newcastle University holds open days in the summer and autumn each year. There's a variety of activities to help you find out about our department, the University, student life and the city.  These include our talks and the opportunity to meet our staff and current students.

Our Open Day is designed for pre-applicant students, just embarking on the UCAS application process.  

Our 2019 Open Days will take place on:

  • Friday 28 June 2019
  • Saturday 29 June 2019
  • Saturday 14 September 2019

You'll need to book a place if you plan to attend.

Independent Visits

Where possible, we encourage prospective students to visit us as part of an organised open day/visit day, allowing you to benefit from the range of activities on offer.  However we understand that this isn't always possible.  If you can't attend one of the above events we will do our best to accommodate independent visits, although the availability of staff is limited during busy teaching semesters and our of term time.  To enquire about a visit please contact us at

Food and Nutrition Offer Holder Days

Our Offer Holder Days are very popular and offer an engaging and interactive way to learn more about our research, teaching and life as a Food and Nutrition student. We strongly value the importance of these days and you will have the opportunity to meet with a wide array of staff and current students who will endeavour to provide as much information as possible.

Once you've received a formal offer through UCAS, we'll contact you about the Offer Holder Days. You can book a place on an Accommodation Talk/Tour to coincide with your visit. These tours are organised by Central University and not the School of Biomedical, Nutritional and Sport Sciences.
