Fun isn’t just for Freshers anymore. The NUSU Postgraduate Welcome Activities offer a wide range of activities and events for all postgraduate students to get involved with. These events run from 1st October through until 13th November, taking place in evenings and weekends to allow postgraduates with busy schedules to attend and get to know other postgraduate students. Postgraduates from all schools and disciplines are encouraged to get involved with the range of free and paid events organised exclusively for postgraduates.
The programme includes introductory welcome events, such as a Coffee Morning and Postgraduate Life Talk, with a Postgraduate Welcome Party on the 11th October anticipated to be the most popular event. The Welcome Party will give students a taste of some of Newcastle’s most loved pubs, bars and clubs with free entry all night; this is not an event to be missed! Other events include theatre trips for the literature and drama lovers, dog and cat cafe visits to satisfy any pet cravings, and discounted food socials to fill you up after seminars and long days in the labs. Space golf, The Suggestibles comedy show and pottery painting are great for anyone who likes to get involved with an activity whilst getting social, with a Cafe Crawl on 7th November creating the perfect relaxing social for any non-drinkers or people who just want to end the day with some tea and cake. Local, UK, EU and international postgraduates are all encouraged to attend the International Free Food Potluck, with various societies celebrating their cultures and foods – all for free!
Specific meet-ups are arranged for Postgraduate Research Students as well as Parents, Carers & Mature Students to build a community, with all students completing postgraduate taught courses, postgraduate research courses and PhD’s encouraged to get involved with as many activities as they can. All the events are free to attend or discounted for student’s budgets, with accessibility information clearly stated on each event page.
