Welcome to International Newcastle

International Newcastle facilitates international relations, by hosting international visitors including dignitaries, officials and businesses, representing the City and North East overseas.  We work with clients to equip them with the skills to get the most out of international relations and develop productive international relationships.  We provide cultural briefings on working with other nationals, to help in gaining that competitive edge, as well as delivering workshops on cross-cultural communication skills. Through partners such as Newcastle University we also support International students to integrate into the city and raise cultural awareness.
