Information for Schools and Colleges



You must attend 100% of the Academic Summer School to pass and fulfil the conditions of your lower offer to Newcastle University.

You must be available to attend the summer school on the following dates:

  • Medicine & Law: 2 - 6 July and 9 - 10 July 2018

If you are ill during the Summer School, or have a condition that may prevent you from taking part in any of your sessions, we will require a note from your doctor.


Holidays are not an acceptable reason for absence. If you have a holiday planned during this event you should rearrange it.

You must also ensure that you have plenty of time afterwards to complete and hand in your project work by the agreed deadline. The exact date is dependant on which subject strand you sit at the Summer School and will be confirmed prior to the start of the event.

Other circumstances

Other circumstances for absence from the Academic Summer School would be considered on an individual basis.


For those students applying to Medicine, Dentistry & Law, there is an assessment with a submission deadline on 23 July 2018. You don't need to attend the university on this date and may submit early if you wish, however we would recommend that you keep some dates avaialble immediately after the summer school to complete your assessment.
