Where you are assessed

You don’t have to come to centre to sit your exams! You can sit exams at over 800 approved centres around the world (including local Ministries of Education or the British Council).

These centres are separate from local teaching institutions, and charge a fee for hosting the exam.

When you are assessed

Exams are held throughout the year, depending on your course. Your programme regulations will tell you when your exams will take place.

Exam entry opening dates are listed on our website.

About feedback

Individual feedback on unseen written exams is not provided. However, you will have access to Examiners’ Commentaries, which provide detailed feedback for the cohort and may include sample answers from past papers.

About local teaching centres?

About local teaching centres

While most of our programmes have been designed for independent study, over half of our students choose to receive additional tuition and support from one of our Recognised Teaching Centres.

 We work with a network of over 150 institutions all over the world. Each of these has met a set of quality requirements to ensure that they have the capabilities and expertise to support our programmes.

Institutions that enter into an agreement with the University are referred to as University of Newcastle Recognised Teaching Centres.

What support do you receive?

 

Some of our Recognised Teaching Centres offer lectures and seminars. This allows you to discuss academic issues in small groups with a tutor.

 

Classes may be provided full-time or part-time. Check that the level of support fits with your schedule.

 

You can also benefit from academic and recreational facilities, including libraries, computer facilities, and clubs or special interest groups.

 

Some Recognised Teaching Centres offer online support, which may be useful if you live too far away to attend regularly.

 

You may receive extra study materials, such as audio and video lectures, and the opportunity to participate in online discussions.

 

Enrol at a local centre

Enrolling at a teaching centre is separate from registering as a student with the University of Newcastle.

 

To benefit from local teaching support, you must enrol and pay any tuition fees charged by that centre.

 

You should await our confirmation that you are eligible to study your chosen programme before you do so.

 

Programmes you must study at a Recognised Teaching Centre

 

  • Certificate of Higher Education in Common Law
  • Certificate of Higher Education in Computing and Information Systems
  • Certificate of Higher Education in Creative Computing
  • Certificate of Higher Education in Social Sciences
  • International Foundation Programme.

 

For these programmes, you must register and study at a centre that has been approved to teach that programme.

Choosing a teaching centre?

Our checklist will help you decide if the centre is right for you. It might also provide the right questions to ask when you make your enquiries.

Points and information to consider about Recognised Teaching Centres.

Institutions that enter into an agreement with the University are known as University of Newcastle Recognised Teaching Centres.

 

Some questions to ask:

  • Is the centre a recognised centre, or has it started the recognition process?
  • Is it registered with the relevant local authorities, such as the Ministry of Education?
  • How long has it been established? Check its website or printed brochures.
  • How long has it been providing support for University of Newcastle students? Has it got a ‘track record’ of successful results?
  • Can you talk to enrolled students and get their opinions? (Check out our teaching centre pages for testimonials.)

Teaching

  • Does the timing and frequency of classes suit you?
  • What format do the classes take? Are there tutorials as well as lectures? What size are the tutorial groups?
  • Does the centre offer to teach and learning support for all levels of the degree? Is this support limited to a range of units or modules?
  • Are the lecturers full-time or part-time?

Facilities / Services

  • Does the centre provide details of the specific services and facilities it offers?
  • How do its services and fees compare with other centres in your area?
  • Can you see the facilities, especially the library? Can you borrow books from the library, and/or does it have good electronic library resources?
  • If you already have your subject guides, does the centre hold copies of the essential and recommended texts? Is there room to study in the library, and is it quiet?

Contracts / Formalities

  • Is there a written contract between you and the centre when you enrol? (If not, make sure you understand the terms and conditions that apply and your liability.)
  • Do you pay fees in one payment or in instalments? What is the refund policy if you cease studying?
  • While we advise you not to enrol until you have an offer from us, we realise that you may be eager to start your studies before this. Is the centre able to charge you only for tuition you receive if we cannot accept you on the programme?

 

Additional checks for online or correspondence centres:

  • If based in the country, is the centre accredited by the University of Newcastle Quality Council?
  • If it offers study materials as part of its tuition, do these offer more than our subject guides do?
  • If a tutoring service is offered, what response time does the centre guarantee?
  • Can you send in your assignments by email and receive feedback the same way?
  • If you are not certain about a teaching centres status with us, contact our teaching centres team for more information. Further questions may be answered below.

Some Teaching Centres will still show the previous framework terminology (Candidate, Registered or Affiliate) for a short time until all Centres have been regularised.
