Incoming Exchange Students

We welcome study abroad, occasional and exchange students to study with us at Newcastle University.

Support and facilities

We offer administrative, academic and pastoral support to all of our students.

Our dedicated base for students includes a Common Room. This gives you space to work, relax and meet fellow students.

You'll find out more information about your module choices, contacts and useful academic resources on our current students page

You can also take a look at our procedures and regulations area, which covers how your degree is calculated, attendance policy and other useful advice.


It's important that you attend all your seminars and classes. We monitor student attendance to make sure you get the most from your time with us.  

If you are absent for whatever reason, follow the absence procedure.

As an international student studying in the UK, your attendance can affect your Tier 4 visa. UK Visas and Immigration expect all international students to attend classes.

If you're regularly absent, we may refer you to the Student Progress Service. They may notify UK Visas and Immigration, and this could result in your withdrawal from your programme.


We have three modules which we offer exclusively to visiting students.

Support for exchange students

We offer a wide range of support for our exchange students. We'll support you from pre-arrival, to after the completion of your exchange.

Each of our subject areas has an allocated subject advisor. These are academic members of our staff. They act as a point of contact for our students, and for subject-specific enquiries.

Personal tutor

Exchange students also have a Personal Tutor. This is an academic member of our staff who can provide help and guidance for any problems.

For Loyola exchange students, this is likely to be a former Loyola student who has been on an exchange to Newcastle in the past.
