International students

I would say the most impressive element in this course is student support.

This is where I can develop my language skills and gain more confidence.

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.


I am currently living in Leazes Terrace, one of the University’s postgraduate accommodations, which is 10 minutes walking distance to the campus. After I received my CAS letter, the university sent me an email which directed me to the accommodation portal, which provides information about each hall of residence. By following the information and instructions, the selection of my accommodation was an easy process.

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