Bridging the Gap

Bridging the Gap transition campaign logo Education Campaigns

Say hello to "Bridging the Gap" - our campaign aimed to assist you in your transition to University.

At NUSU we know that the jump from school or college to University can be quite big, so we’ve worked hard on nailing down the key differences to understand now that you’re here!

This short guide will help as a useful reference is there’s anything you might be unsure of about University life compared to school or college life. And of course, if you feel there’s anything we might of missed feel free to get in contact and we’ll see about getting that updated in the materials!

If you have any questions, comments, or feedback (both about the campaign and your own experiences of transitioning into University), please contact the Education Officer, Pablo, at

If you are new undergraduate student, you can also take part in 'Newcastle Beginnings: Your Academic Headstart'. A four week induction into your academic experience at Newcastle University.
