As results day gets closer, accommodation, clearing and freshers are the hot topics in The Student Room.
If you pass the summer school for PARTNERS but miss your grades, you will be considered as a ‘near-miss’ candidate and so you will be reconsidered along with all the other students who have applied to Newcastle University and missed their grades. You can choose to go through Clearing and see what courses have places left. Our Clearing Hotline opens at 7.30am on Thursday 19th August 2016 – just call 0800 073 50 50. Don’t forget you can always contact the PARTNERS team for advice before and on results day.
We advise that you apply for your accommodation as soon as possible, even if Newcastle is your insurance choice. You won’t be covered by our New Students Guarantee, but the Accommodation Services will do their best to allocate you uni accommodation and your room should be processed by 1 September.
Yes of course! The Fresher’s Wristband gets you into certain daytime and evening events, but the Clubs & Societies Fair is open to everyone. Plus some societies run their own welcome events that don’t require a wristband. Our website has a full list of the societies on offer if you want to get in touch with anyone before you arrive.
