Your Learning Experience / On-demand

Our Learning Experience On-Demand content will help you discover how Northumbria is leading the way in your subject area of interest; listen to some of the academics you might be taught by, and hear from current students about their experiences. There will also be a chance to explore our campus, learning spaces and the wider Newcastle-upon-Tyne region.

FAQs - Your Questions Answered.

An open day gives you the chance to experience Northumbria, visit our campus and get any questions you have answered before making your final decision to apply to study with us. Open days are a great opportunity to speak to academics from your course of interest and chat to current students as well as allowing you to experience the campus facilities and social spaces.

Get a taste of campus life as you join us at our City-Centre and Coach Lane campuses. You’ll have opportunity to get your questions answered as you speak to our academics, explore our facilities on campus tours and visit the Sports Central and Students’ Union. Find out more information about what to expect here.

Northumbria University’s Open Days offer a lot to see and do. With all the options available, it’s possible to miss out on important information if you get caught up in everything that’s going on. Here are our tips for a comprehensive Open Day checklist.

  • Check Which Campus to Attend: We have two campuses in Newcastle – City Campus and Coach Lane Campus. Please make sure you check which Campus the subjects that you are interested in are held at. There is lots on offer at both campuses so you won’t miss out. There is also a free shuttle bus between City Campus and Coach Lane Campus running on the day if you would like to see both campuses.
  • Do Your Research: Figure out what you want to find out on the open day and which tours, talks or activities you want to attend. It’s also always best to plan any travel with plenty of notice, both to save money, and to ensure you know exactly where you’re going.
  • Subject Talks and Facility Tours: The best way to find out if a course is right for you is to attend a subject talk and tour the facilities. This will give you an opportunity to ask lots of questions about your chosen subject and what your learning experience will be like day to day. Take a virtual tour beforehand to see what’s on offer.
  • Campus Tours: Having a university rep show you around the campus is a great way to not only get your bearings, but also to ask current students questions about what it’s really like to live and learn at Northumbria University.
  • Financial Support and Wellbeing: Aside from the more course-specific presentations there will also be ‘general information’ talks available covering everything from accommodation to finance and support services. Make sure to plan in time for these as they’ll help you gain a wider understanding of what the university can offer you beyond the educational benefits. Visit our student support page for more information.
  • Student Residences and Accommodation: Northumbria University offers tours of our accommodation options as part of our Open Days and would highly recommend that add one to your itinerary. Members of the accommodation team will also be on-hand in the Main Exhibition to tell you more about our options but it’s always best to see first-hand.
  • Clubs and Societies: An Open Day is a great opportunity to learn what extra-curricular activities you’d like to get involved with. Whether you’re into sports, gaming or politics there’s a society (or societies) for you. Want to find out more? Our SU societies page showcases all the available options.
  • Explore the Area: If you’ll be living away from home, it’s crucial that you spend some time taking in the city and surrounding areas. While you’ll be spending plenty of time on campus, a lot of your university experience will be spent enjoying everything Newcastle has to offer. Looking for a preview? Check out our virtual platform, NU World.
