Moving to a new country to study can be challenging, but we are here to support you every step of the way.
At Newcastle our student support scored 93% for international student satisfaction in the International Student Barometer Survey 2018.
Our free services include:
- a dedicated student services building in the heart of campus, King’s Gate
- a Student Advice Centre in the Students’ Union
We can answer your questions and provide advice about:
- academic studies
- English language skills
- student finance
- visa application and renewal
- personal and emotional issues
We will give you all the information you need before you leave your country. We will continue to support you from the moment you arrive.
Our International Welcome Week programme is packed with information sessions to help you settle in the UK and social events to help you make new friends.
Your personal tutor will support you throughout your time at Newcastle. They can offer practical guidance on a wide range of academic and non-academic issues.
You may also be given a student mentor. This is a fellow student on your degree who has been trained to support incoming students.
You need to have enough funding to cover course fees and living costs. It’s important to have this in place before moving to the UK.
If you are applying for a visa you will need to provide evidence of access to adequate funds.
If you have already secured funding for your study through a governmental or industrial sponsorship programme, you must tell your funding body about any changes to your planned study.
For further information on funding and applying for your visa please visit the British Council and UK Council for International Student Affairs websites.
