September 2022 Welcome Programme

September 2022 Welcome Programme

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.

Our International Welcome Programme and Information Sessions will be held both in person and online from 14th - 16th September 2022

All students will also have access to the enhanced online induction and orientation programme available via Canvas, our Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) as well throughout the year for help and support.

Our International Welcome Programme consists of a variety of different ways to help and support you in the transition to Newcastle, to help you settle in and feel confident in Newcastle. All in person events take place in the Frederick Douglass Centre (no 106 on the Campus map)
