An International Students Guide to UoN Services
Finding the best place to go for help at Uni can be a bit overwhelming, especially if you’re an international student. Leanne Elliott lists the best places where international students can go to get help on all things UoN.
Being a university student can be stressful, even more so when you are attending university in another country. Additional barriers such as language, acclimatising to a new culture and living away from home can add to the stress felt by international students.
However, there is a range of services available through the University of Newcastle which can assist international students with a wide range of issues, from navigating the area, language and learning and welfare matters.
If you are an international student and need help or advice with academic or personal matters here is a guide to available services at UoN.
