Your student experience at Newcastle will cover a wide range of activities and opportunities.

Employability

You will leave us as an employable graduate. You'll have an understanding of the relevance of academic learning in an organisational context. 

Throughout your time here, you have access to career consultants. You'll also have access to a range of other experts who will support your career journey.

When you graduate, you’ll be able to show our Global Graduate Attributes. We developed these by working with key stakeholders.

Together, we identified what organisations are looking for in their new graduates, both now and in the future.

Employability Hub

The activities listed on this page highlight some of the ways in which we instil these attributes into every opportunity we offer. 

If you’re ever in need of help, you can find our Employability Hub on the ground floor of the Business School.

You can arrange to meet with a member of the Student Experience Team. You'll be able to discuss placements, study abroad or shorter mobility opportunities.

You can also arrange to meet a member of the Careers Team. You can discuss CVs, cover letters, advice on where to look for placements and mock interviews.

Wellbeing and support

We offer in-house student wellbeing support. This service enables you to book direct appointments with a trained counsellor or mental health adviser. 

You can book regular appointments, or attend a virtual drop-in session.

We designed these for situations where you may want to speak to someone about an issue that may impact your health and wellbeing.

We also run several themed sessions during term time.

This allows you to meet staff from support services across the University and find out how they can support your studies.

Help and guidance

You can also access central support via the University’s Student Health and Wellbeing service, which you can find in King’s Gate.  

We also provide you with access to help and guidance on how to study most effectively during your time here. This includes help in areas such as mathematics, academic writing, and language.

Student voice

Your feedback is very important to us and we respond whenever we can. An example of this includes the commissioning of digital skills sessions. This enables our students to learn about areas including Google Analytics and WordPress. 

Academic Representatives are here to represent your academic interests. They work with the University staff to create positive change for our students.

Student Voice Committees are a key part of how we engage with all students through their programme representatives.

This ensures that every student feels represented in institutional decision-making processes. Every student can contribute to the enhancement of their programme and learning experience.
