When is it?

7th September - 1st October 2017

Where is it?

Newcastle Civic Centre

Our Welcome Students of the World event returned for its second year in 2017, taking place between 7th September and 1st October 2016, and decorating the city for the arrival of 80,000 students, before a weekend of events to end with a bang.


From the Civic Centre, to Newcastle Castle, Central Station and Newcastle International Airport, onto the pitch at St James' Park, and right in front of the Monument, Newcastle welcomed International Students with open arms.

Incredible high-impact Firework display in the heart of the city to close the event
