International Students

International Students

We have more than 30 nationalities represented in Newcastle Law School. Join an international community of staff and students.

Newcastle Law School welcomes students from all over the world. We give our international students the best learning experience possible.

One-to-one student mentoring

All international students will receive support from a trained student mentor. Giving you a friendly and informal point of contact to help you settle into life in Newcastle.

The mentoring scheme started as a pilot project in September 2008. The feedback from mentors and mentees has been very positive.

International student support

International students are a vibrant and integral part of our community. They enrich the Law School and University with their presence, culture and experiences. We recognise how overwhelming it can be for international students to study:

  • in a foreign country
  • often, in a foreign language
  • far away from their loved ones

The Law School has introduced the role of International support. This is an academic supporting international students in adjusting to University life here. The International Tutor has weekly office hours dedicated to international students.

They can discuss any academic concerns they may have. They can seek advice on issues about their academic development. The International Tutor organises, with international student representatives, activities. These range from social gatherings to information/support sessions.

Currently, the International support are Bronwen Jones and Josh Jowitt.
