    Is there anyway of finding out my timetable for freshers week? As in, which days/times I'll have lectures? I'm doing Modern Languages.
    Thanks
    Hello

    If you are yet to receive timetabling information, it is likely that you will have to wait until registration and your induction during Freshers' Week to find out.

    Hi, when do we receive our timetables? I'll be starting the zoology course but I work part time too so I need to let them know ASAP if I need my shifts changing or not.
    Thanks

    Hi Louise, thanks for getting in touch

    If you are yet to receive timetabling information, it is likely that you will have to wait until registration and your induction during Freshers' Week to find out. I will pass on your circumstances to your School to see if they can provide you with any details sooner.

    Hey Matt, thanks for getting in touch

    The majority of the Freshers' Week day time activities begin after 2pm each day - and if any do start before then they are usually repeated again at a later time.

    I hope that answered your question!

    Hey, thanks for getting in touch

    If you are referring to the Freshers' Week welcome pack, it will be given out at the same time as wristband collection. Collection will run from 11am-6pm Saturday 20th & Sunday 21st in Venue in the SU.

    Apart from that, it is unlikely that you will have received anything in the post, as the majority of instructions/information is sent via email.
    I hope that answered your question, anything else let me know

    Hello

    More information about registration dates and opening hours can be found here: http://www.ncl.ac.uk/pre-arrival/welcome/

    From this site I believe the earliest you can register is 10am on Monday 15th September.

    The modules procedure will vary between courses, but you will have to wait until Induction Week to officially choose them.

    I hope that answered your question, let me know if there's anything else

    Hi Abbie, sorry for the delay in my reply.

    More information about the courtesy bus can be found here: http://www.ncl.ac.uk/accommodation/a...oolBus_001.pdf

    The journey should take around 15 minutes depending on traffic.

    I hope that answered your question

    Hi Louise

    No, a wristband won't be needed for those events.

    Hi

    I am stopping at Central link and will be driving up on the 19th, I'm aware that parking round that area is very limited so I wont be able to get a space, I wont need my car whilst I'm in Newcastle just for travelling back and forth so I was wondering if it was possible to park at at another accommodation like St Mary's college ? or if its possible to contact anyone that wont be utilising their car parking space at their accommodation and pay to use that instead? I sent an enquiry through the website a few days ago but I haven't got a response yet so I'm just getting a little bit nervous that I wont have anywhere to keep my car once I'm up there.

    Thanks

    Hi Dan, thanks for getting in touch

    I've been in contact with Accommodation, and unfortunately parking on our sites is for the residents only and this week is a very busy time with arrivals – so only students living on the sites who have applied for a permit will be allowed to park. Unfortunately with Central Link being in the city centre there is no parking for the accommodation, and advice really is not to bring a car to keep overnight.

    Sorry about that Dan.
