University Open Days and Events | Northumbria




Choosing which university to go to and what to study are big decisions.

From choosing the right degree for you, to finding somewhere nice to live and working out how you can fund your studies – there’s lots to think about.

Ploughing through lots of information can be overwhelming, and we know your time is precious.

So, we have broken our virtual open day down into bitesize chunks that you can pick and choose from.

We’re running live and interactive bitesize virtual events to show you what we have to offer, and help you get the answers you need to make a decision.

You can explore our NU World, ask us all of your questions, and find out about becoming part of Northumbria through video.

Each event will have live panels where you can interact with staff and students, and the chance to live chat with us to get your questions answered.

Plus, you can dive into a wealth of video content about how you will learn, what you will love, and where you will live, to get a flavour of what’s on offer here at Northumbria.



We are excited to be able to welcome you back on campus for our 2021 Open Days. We will be following government guidelines and will be able to update you with more information about what you can expect from an on campus experience nearer the time, so make sure you book your place today.

This information will be updated regularly in compliance with guidelines surrounding COVID 19, please check back for regular updates.

Your Learning Experience

Our inspirational academics lead the way in their fields, pursuing new thinking, finding new solutions and having a remarkable impact on the World.

Did you know, for example, our pioneering people helped develop rapid testing for Ebola, are researching ice sheets to predict how sea levels might rise, and are helping to make the fashion industry more sustainable?

Our Learning Experience events will help you discover how Northumbria is leading the way in your subject, meet some of the academics you might be taught by, and hear from current students about their experiences.

There’ll also be the chance to explore further through virtual tours, watch our researchers talk about their ground-breaking discoveries and see in-depth video content about some of our courses.

Your Home

Whilst we might not be able to explore our vibrant city-centre campus at the moment, that doesn’t mean we can’t show you more about the place you’ll call home.

You’ll be able to connect with our accommodation team about the different options for living on campus at our live panel and have the opportunity to ask questions.

You’ll also be able to explore videos to learn more about why Newcastle is consistently voted the Best Student City in the UK and take virtual tours of our campus and accommodation.

Your Community

When you join a university, you want to belong.

Whether you want to join a society and meet new people, take part in our Sport clubs, or just find out what life in Newcastle is like - this session will show you the Northumbria community.

You’ll have a chance to interact with Student Union reps and current students at our live panel, to hear more about our clubs and societies and other opportunities to get involved in university life.

From volunteering to student media, there’s something for everybody here at Northumbria and we’ve also carefully collated a selection of videos to give you a flavour of what’s on offer.

Your Future

Coming to university can transform your life.

And at Northumbria everything we do is centred around helping you get where you want to be.

This live event will give you a chance to connect with our staff and students to hear about how we put employability first.

You can learn more about placements, study abroad opportunities and how so many of our students get the chance to put their learning into action with live projects for real organisations.

Your Money

Getting a degree is an investment in your future.

We can help you navigate your options for funding your studies and connect you with our special advisors through our live panel or live chat.

You can also find out about student loans available for both undergraduate and postgraduate students and any scholarships we might have available.
