When is it?

7th September - 1st October 2017

Where is it?

Newcastle Civic Centre

NE1's Welcome Students of the World event returns on the 7th September 2017, transforming Newcastle to welcome the influx of 80,000 students from 152 different countries from all over the world.


Newcastle remains the only city to welcome students from all institutions as one and we are proud to offer this celebration in conjunction with Newcastle University, Northumbria University and Newcastle College.


Running from 7th September until 1st October, NE1 will welcome students to the city with street-dressing throughout the city centre, as well as an extensive and inventive events programme as the celebration builds to a climax on the weekend of 29th September to 1st October.


If you'd like to become a part of the event this year, as a sponsor or host venue, please don't hesitate to email Ben.
