Welcome Hyem

Whether you're joining us in Newcastle for the first time or returning to campus, we couldn’t be more excited to have you in our city.

To celebrate having you with us, we're running a photography competition. Prizes will be awarded for the most creative shots from around the campus and across the city.

The competition is called ‘Welcome Hyem’ - an old Geordie saying we have here in the North East meaning “welcome home”.

It will run between Tuesday 19th and Thursday 28th September 2023.

You can follow the entries at #WelcomeHyem on our socials.

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.

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.

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.
