The North East is by far one of the best regions for international students. With a huge variety of activities and cultural sites it is a great place to go exploring. Every year Newcastle is home to over 10,000 international students and this number is growing all the time. From shopping, to eating and drinking, musical and theatre events, or even seeing a football match there is plenty to do in Newcastle.

 

At Roseworth we have a growing number of international students each year. We understand that moving abroad can be a daunting experience and for some this can be a piece of cake, but for others it can be a difficult process with lots of questions to ask. With a friendly open door approach here at Roseworth we ensure that our tenants from all countries and nationalities feel welcome and at home in our Newcastle student accommodation. 

 

The city of Newcastle offers a wide selection of different student housing for international students.  Whether you’re looking to share Newcastle student accommodation with other students or whether you’re looking to rent your own one bedroom flat or studio apartment, Roseworth have what you are looking for! Studying abroad and living with other students is a fantastic way of making new friends, experiencing our culture and most importantly improving on your language skills. For those of you wanting to make an advanced improvement on your language skills there are free classes held at the Star and Shadow Cinema in Byker on a weekly basis. Run by volunteers this programme aims to be inclusive of all cultures and anti discriminatory.

 

International students should also make great use of their Student Unions whilst at University. Both Northumbria and Newcastle University offer a long list of societies which give you the opportunity to meet like-minded people, get together to share and celebrate a common interest or activity. Whether it is a society based around your home country or whether it is continuing on a hobby from home the choice is yours.

 

Both universities also offer` International Community Day` which is a free event for students to learn about ways to get involved with the local community. `International Welcome Day` is also held at the start of the academic year and is a great way to get involved with events designed especially for students to settle into university life.
