Photography competition

Welcome Hyem!

Here in the North East we have an old Geordie saying “Welcome Hyem” meaning “welcome home”. Whether you are joining us in Newcastle for the first time or returning to campus, we couldn’t be more excited to welcome you home to our city. To celebrate the new academic year, we are running a photography competition across our social media channels where prizes will be awarded for the most creative shots from around the University’s campus and across the city.

New and returning undergraduates and postgraduate students can enter. You can find out more about the competition and how to get involved on our Student Blog.

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.

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.

Student welfare and safety is our priority. The NUBS Health & Safety Policy (PDF: 171.6 KB) is an important document that students should make sure they are familiar with.

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.
