PARTNERS is open to students from across the UK. Who can apply?

What are the benefits?

To be eligible for PARTNERS, students must meet just one of 12 PARTNERS eligibility criteria. If a student is eligible for PARTNERS, they will receive a conditional offer that could be up to three grades lower than the standard offer.

• A lower conditional offer – up to three grades lower than the standard offer for study at Newcastle University • Dedicated support from the PARTNERS team throughout the application process • Events and activities to encourage and support students throughout the transition from school or college to university, including a compulsory academic summer school.

Some students are automatically eligible for PARTNERS: • Students from black and minority ethnic (BAME) groups (from state schools and colleges only) • Students from Gypsy, Roma or Traveller communities • Students with refugee status

Find out more about PARTNERS by visiting www.ncl.ac.uk/schools/partners

Extraordinary Evolution

Taking evolution back to the basics of DNA, we’ll look at how DNA programmes our bodies and what happens when mistakes (mutations) occur. We’ll find out how these mutations drive evolution and allow animals to become better adapted to their habitats, with some classic examples and interactive activities. Students will get the chance to dig into our own past and look at our ancestors by studying their fossilised skulls.
