Key Dates

From Freshers' week to open days, semester dates to application deadlines, here are some key dates for your diary.

Open Days

There's no better way to get a feel for Newcastle University than to come and visit our campus. We run on-campus undergraduate and postgraduate events throughout the year.

Visit our events calender to find out more.

Application deadlines

When applying for a course, you need to know if there are any deadlines you need to work towards.

We include application or admissions deadlines on our undergraduate and postgraduate course pages.

Freshers' week and registration dates

If you're a new student waiting to start your course, we will tell you what you need to do and when. Here are some useful links so you can start planning your arrival:

Term and semester dates

The Newcastle University academic year starts at the end of September. We split the year into three terms or semesters:

  • Autumn
  • Spring
  • Summer

We set our term and semester dates in advance, so you can plan around your studies.

Graduation dates

We hold graduation ceremonies, known as congregations, several times a year. Find out about our next ceremony dates.
