Here are some examples of what our postgraduate students said about us:

“There is also a wide range of modules on the course, which allows me to learn about all aspects of marketing and business and gives me a wider depth of knowledge in the field.”

“Such support meant I felt I could truly enjoy my Uni experience. Also, whenever I had an issue with finance the team at Student services always gave me a friendly, quick and clear answer.”

“It was liberating to choose my own project direction, but terrifying at the same time! However, I learned how to work more independently in both the lab and the office, which are important lessons for the work force.”

International students

If English isn’t your first language, we offer with INTO Newcastle. We also have where you can prepare for direct entry onto one of our degrees.

“Newcastle University not only offers good resources and environment for campus studies, but also encourages students to get involved in the societies and out-of-class practices. Besides, I think the people in this city are very friendly as it is my first time here so I’m really happy to live in Newcastle."


We guarantee for the first year of a course. We also offer help and support if you are looking for private accommodation.

“I am living in University accommodation that is majorly comprised of postgraduate students and international students. Living with English locals and other international students from around the world adds such a fun dynamic to my living experience and also provides for many interesting dinner conversations. Sorting out accommodation was a fluid process with much support available, if needed.”
