Information Events

In the run-up to the PARTNERS Academic Summer School (PASS), we'll be hosting on-campus and online events to give you more information about what to expect.

Information Evening

This event took place on Newcastle University campus on Wednesday 21 March 2018.

We held an on-campus Information Evening for you and your parents/carers on Wednesday 21 March 2018 at the Newcastle University.

The event was hosted by the PARTNERS Team, with input from student ambassadors, student services and academics. During the event we gave an overview of what to expect during the PARTNERS Academic Summer School, including:

  • Important dates
  • Structure & content
  • The assessment (for applicants to Medicine, Dentistry & Law)
  • Peer-mentoring
  • Q&A - an opportunity to ask any questions you may have.

If you were unable to attend in person, you can view the ReCap session below, along with the presentation slides that were delivered on the day:

Ask Us Anything Webinar

We will host our PASS – Ask Us Anything webinar at 16:30 - 17:30 on Wednesday 23 May.

This online event is an opportunity to ask us any questions you might have about the PARTNERS Academic Summer School. Questions may relate to any aspect of the summer school, including your subject strand, timetable, student handbook, accommodation... anything!

The event will be available online during and after the event.

It will feature a panel containing members of the PARTNERS team, a PARTNERS graduate and a current PARTNERS student. The panel will answer your questions during a live Q&A.

Online Live Chat

In the build up to the Summer School, we'll be running a series of live chats, with members of the PARTNERS Team, Student Services & current undergraduates, ready to answer your questions.

The live chat sessions will take place on a weekly basis throughout May and June 2018. You can tune in during any week you like, however if you'd like to ask subject specific questions, we recommend joining in during the session with representatives from your subject area.

Join us if you have any last minute questions related to your course, the summer school, or university life in general!

If you can't make it during the chat session, don't worry - each live chat session will be available to view afterwards.
