Hi @isla21!, we aim to process all applications as soon as possible after they are received, but this can take longer during busy times, and where courses have other admissions processes involved (for example interviews or portfolios). Which course have you applied for?

I'm glad you enjoyed visiting our campus during our Open Day @isla21!

I have lived in Newcastle all of my life so I would agree it is a cool city. If you want, you could chat to current students about how they find living here via UniBuddy.

My daughter has recently received an offer for the geography and planning course at Newcastle which is great news but the conditional offer she received (ABB) is higher than the required grades specified for that particular course (BBB). This has come as a bit of a shock as her five choices for UCAS were all based on the specified required grades. Why would the offer be higher than the advertised required grades?

Hi,

Congratulations to your daughter for receiving an offer for our Geography and Planning BA Honours programme. You are correct that the standard A Level entry requirements for this programme for 2023 Entry are: BBB including Geography.

I have spoken with the Undergraduate Admissions Team and any offers being ABB for this programme is due to a clerical error which should be fixed now. We apologise for the error and any inconvenience caused.

Best wishes,
Hana

Thank you for confirming. My daughter received confirmation of this separately via the University website chat since my original post so she's very happy.

Hi @jessie.01

We do try to process applications as quickly as we can. There is no specific timescale that we respond within because each application is considered individually.

However, all applicants who apply before/on the 25th of January 2023 will receive a decision by the 18th of May 2023.

If you have any further queries relating to your application, you are welcome to get in touch with us by filling in our enquiries form.

Hi, I applied to Newcastle University on 15th Jan, the portal says results will be announced within 20 days. I still haven't heard back. Could you let me know by when can I expect the results?

They're doing well to turn everyone around within 20 days if so :smile:
I am interested in Medicine.

1.What your view on someone doing an apprenticeship in Dental Nursing as a way of getting some clinical experience and interacting with patients? I have a twofold interest in Dental Nursing because the mentioned gaining clinical experience and also the possibility of becoming a Aesthetic Practitioner and offer blemish removal and supplement my student income.

2.Will Newcastle Medical School ever do the Medical Apprenticeships?

3. We live in a multicultural society with many different languages. What languages are the most frequently requested and would learning sign language or how to write braille be advantages.

An inspiring story blind Barrister:

4. Every Medical School has something special about them. What makes Newcastle Medical School especially unique in comparison to other.

5. On this site some students think their life is over if the have failed in their GCSE. I would like to here from Newcastle University prospective where as it not ideal. Would you still consider them for all your subjects if they perhaps did a retake or A/S it or A level and done well in that?

Thank you for your time

Hey, I applied to Newcastle's MSc HCI on 23rd November and received an offer just a couple of days ago on 10th February. I emailed them back in Jan asking if there was any hold up in my application process and was told that the delay is due to a high volume of application being received. Not sure if that is what helped in getting a decision but you could try emailing them as well.
