Show your parents student life

As we all know, parents can have a huge input on your decisions, and picking which uni you want to go to is no exception. You might have seen our Top 5 Ways to Get a Taste of Student Life, but now it’s time to take a look at our Top 5 ways to show your parents what life’s really like here in the Toon:


Why not direct your ‘rents to our team of Student Bloggers, giving a true account of what life in Newcastle is really like. Covering everything from lessons learned to things to do, no one can convince your parents the Toon’s the place to be like current students.


Every year, Newcastle Uni puts on a ‘Real Deal Parent and Carer Event’ which provides info about higher education and the university. With loads of sessions on everything from Financial Support to Student Accommodation, this event is a great way for your parents to get onto campus and learn more about what Newcastle has to offer. Take a look at last year’s event here.


Not only a nice day out with the fam, Newcastle University’s Visit Days offer plenty of opportunities for both you and your parents to get a feel for the place. You’ll be able to go on campus tours, view the accommodation, speak to current students and attend subject specific talks.

If you’re interested in coming on campus, Newcastle’s next Visit Days will be held in summer 2015.


If you can’t make it to the uni, your local UCAS Fair is another way you and your parents can chat to current staff and students about the uni, and find out everything you’d like to know about studying here in Newcastle. Why not see when your local UCAS fair is coming to town?


When it comes down to it, sometimes parents just want all the information in front of them. That’s why we’ve got a dedicated part of our website for parents, where they can read all about what your time at Newcastle will be like to their heart’s content.

So there’s our top five ways your parents can get a taste of student life. If they’ve got any other questions though, or you’d like to find out more about studying at Newcastle Uni, just use the enquiry form below.
