Virtual Events

Come and explore NU World in six bites

Choosing a university is a big decision.

There is so much to think about, and so much you will want to know.  

From choosing a course which will set you up for success, to finding accommodation that suits your needs, and thinking about how you will fund it all - there’s a lot to get your head around.

So, after listening to you and understanding what is most important to you we have created six - live and interactive - bitesize virtual events to help you learn all about Northumbria; all delivered on our NU World virtual platform, which will give you access to a wide range of 360 tours, vlogs, presentations, quizzes and films – in short everything you need to explore our University.

You can pick and choose however many you want to join in with, so you get the information that you need at a time that best suits you.   

Each event will have live panels which connect you to our staff and students, and live chat lounges to give you another way to get your questions answered.

Plus, through our immersive NU World platform, we have put together a wealth of video content about how you will learn, what you will love, and where you will live, that you can explore on the day or bookmark for later.

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 chosen subject area.  They will enable you to meet some of the academics you might be taught by, find out how you will be taught and what facilities are available to you, 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 you might not be able to visit 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 to our students who love to call Newcastle-upon-Tyne and Northumbria their home.

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.

This session will help show you the things you will love doing as part of 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. 

Our Advice

This is the session for you if you would like some help with the practicalities of applying for university.

You can join our live panel to hear hints on how to apply and tips for writing personal statements.

And we will be providing help with jargon-busting so you can make sense of how applying to university works.

You can also explore some video guides we have put together to help you through the application process.
