Reception for Parents of International Students

Parents of incoming students are invited to a special reception with Vice-Chancellor and President, Professor Chris Day on Thursday 20th September. Please join Professor Day from 6pm-8pm in the Armstrong Reception Room, Armstrong Building, Newcastle University (campus map ref: 22) for the opportunity to meet with Newcastle University staff and fellow parents. We will welcome you to the Newcastle University network by celebrating the start of your family’s Newcastle journey and providing ways that you can stay connected to the University, wherever you are in the world. 

We would be grateful if you could inform your parents of the reception and ask them to reserve their place to attend by completing an online booking form.

International Welcome Week involves a schedule of information sessions. We'll inform you about the practicalities of being a new student at Newcastle University and hold social activities to help you make new friends. It also includes our Meet and Greet Service from Newcastle International Airport.
