Social Activities

We want you to make as many friends as possible during your time with us, so there is also a bustling social side to the Academic Summer School.

Hosted by our team of dedicated student reps, the optional social activities are free of charge and available to all PARTNERS students during the Summer School. We encourage students to take part as much as possible!

Social activities for PASS 2022 will be confirmed on timetables when they are circulated in May.

Since PARTNERS 2019, students have been able to participate in the following activities listed below.

Film Night

Lecture theatres were turned into cinema screens, with free popcorn and drinks for all.

Breakfast Club

Student reps were on hand at Castle Leazes to offer advice and directions first thing in the morning. 

I found the social activities, such as the games night and PASS 'Pub' Quiz, really enjoyable. It was nice getting to know other students and the student reps.

PASS 'Pub' Quiz

A pub quiz-style event with plenty of snacks available, and prizes for the winning teams.

At PASS 2021, this was held as a Zoom-based team activity.

Toon Tours

Attendees had the opportunity to discover Newcastle Upon Tyne (affectionately known as the Toon), with a tour delivered by current students.

This was a great way for non-local students to familiarise themselves with all of the need-to-know locations before starting university in September.

'Game of Throws' dodgeball tournament

Over 50 students took part in the mega 'Game of Throws' tournament held at the University Sports Centre in 2019.
