All students have now returned to Newcastle College and will continue to split their time between sessions on campus and some remote learning until the end of the academic year.

We want to reassure everybody that safety remains our highest priority and safety measures will continue to be in place across campus for the foreseeable future. The FAQs below will provide further information about how we're helping you stay safe while you're on campus with us.

Home Testing for Students

All students at Newcastle College can now take part in home testing. This means they test themselves for Covid-19 and report their results to the College and to the NHS. Newcastle College will provide students with test kits, which come with everything they need to test themselves, along with a full set of instructions. The kits contain Lateral Flow Devices, which give results in 30 minutes.

Students can collect test kits from the reception of the building they are normally based in and will need to show their College ID to sign the kits out. Home testing will continue throughout the summer term.
