Information Sessions

Information Sessions

There’s something for everyone here at Newcastle. We want you to meet new people, have fun and get settled into life at Newcastle University. We’re also aware that you are venturing into education in a different country so we want to make this transition as smooth as possible for you.


This year our International Welcome live events will be delivered online. All students will have access to the enhanced online induction and orientation programme available via Canvas, our Virtual Learning Environment (VLE).


We have completed our International Welcome events for semester one but recordings of the following live sessions will be available Canvas:

Adjusting to Life Overseas Webinar      

Learn all about Culture Shock, what it is and how to minimise or avoid it. Moving to a different country to study can be exciting, but it can also be challenging. This webinar will help you to prepare for this, know how to recognise the Culture Shock signs and suggest ways of reducing its impact for you to make the most of your experience. 


Living in Newcastle Webinar    

Learn a bit more about your new home – Newcastle. We’ll talk about the City and the University and you’ll receive some tips on where to visit when you get here and most importantly where to find and buy essential items! 


International Welcome Event  

This event is your official welcome to the University, with welcome messages from the Vice Chancellor, the Lord Mayor of Newcastle and representatives from the Students’ Union (NUSU).
