Newcastle University London


Working with Schools and Colleges

Our extensive work with schools and colleges in and around London and the South East aims to provide students with high-quality information, advice and events so that they can begin to make informed decisions about studying at university. Here at Newcastle University London, we’re committed to raising aspirations and widening participation.

Collaborating with teachers, students and graduates we continue to develop a range of informative and interactive workshops which we deliver in schools and colleges across the region or on campus. These workshops aim to increase awareness of higher education, give students vital skills and knowledge regarding university life and raise student aspirations. We also aim to build beneficial relationships with the staff of schools and colleges, enabling us to offer bespoke visits to support the needs of students and act as a reliable source of information for staff.

Please note that all school visits have been suspended until the end of the academic year due to COVID-19.

We may have the ability to deliver some of our Outreach activities online, either through a live or pre-recorded virtual presentations that can be broadcast to your students. If this is of interest to you, please contact the Outreach Team at the following email: to discuss this option further.  

Subject Specific Workshops

Our subject specific workshops reflect the dynamic, industry immersive degrees we offer here in London and are aimed at students considering studying a business related degree at university. Example activities include everything from interactive presentations about how we support entrepreneurial students, to fun and interactive workshops which get students thinking about what it means to set up a business. We also offer sessions on working across cultures, an introduction to the world of finance and accounting and marketing masterclasses.

Our workshops are constantly being updated and we’re happy to work with you in identifying and delivering bespoke sessions for your organisation.

General Higher Education Workshops

We also offer a wide range of workshops that are applicable to any discipline of university study, offering insight and information on key areas such as the application process, finance and PARTNERS: Newcastle University’s Supported Entry Route. These universal workshops can be combined with those that are subject specific if required.

  • Student Life
  • Finance and Budgeting
  • Applications
  • Study Skills
  • University Trivia
  • Research and Choosing HE Options

On Campus Events

Working alongside you, we can devise an engaging and bespoke programme of workshops to take place in our vibrant London Campus, enabling your students to gain valuable insight into life on campus whilst enjoying a handpicked selection of workshops.

PARTNERS Programme Supported Entry Route

Do your students want to apply to a top University but are worried they won't get the required grades? If so, Newcastle University's PARTNERS Programme could help.

The PARTNERS Programme offers a range of support and opportunities to help students make a successful application to Newcastle University. Students must fulfil certain eligibility criteria in order to take part and complete a summer school after Year 13/final-year at college which counts towards their grades when they apply to the University. Find out further information on this opportunity here.
