ConsFines, the weather

Where do you start to describe a university? This is probably the most difficult opinion I have ever decided to write, although it is one which could prove most useful to somebody who is yet to make up their mind as to where to go. The reason I say it is hard to write about university is this: –...

ConsHand in dates, uni work

Just before I started Newcastle Uni almost 5 years ago i was on a bit of a low. I'd applied to do mechanical engineering at leeds, aston, edinburgh and glasgow, and had been knocked back by all of them. It was shortly after this bitter disappointment that a family friend had suggested applying to...

I'm repeating my first year at Newcastle University following illness just before my exams, and I'm enjoying it as much as ever! I'm doing a BA(Hons) in Accounting and Finance (UCAS code N400 if you're into that kind of thing) and so study in the Armstrong Building, a building steeped in...

“Business Management course”

published 14/02/2001

ProGreat night life, cheap drinks and low rent

ConsVery cold!!

I studied at Newcastle uni for 3 years and loved every minute of it. My flat was great, the night life is unbeatable and the atmosphere is the friendliest of any city i've ever been to. What I have realised since though, is that my course was very useful too! At the time my lectures were just...

“RockinG!!!!”

ConsGeordies. (Just kidding)

This is an amazing city with just about everything in it. The university may be very old and have a traditional feel to it I can assure you that the the courses are very much upto date with some of the leading experts in their respected fields. The medical school is attached to the Royal Victoria...

ProLocation, ease (food), large number of students

ConsBreakfast is served early (7-10)

Castle Leazes is the place to be - you can apply to one of three halls within the one main building, although there's no real difference between them. Most freshers live here, mainly because it's the handiest for town and uni, and there's no need to worry about food (it's not wonderful, but I've...

ProGreat city, prestigious university

ConsNot everyone sees Newcastle in a good light

Newcastle University took me from Leeds and planted me in the heart of the North East of England for 3 years (Undergraduate Computing Course). 8 years later, I still live in Newcastle. The city is excellent and the University is a good way to find that out. The quality of the degree course was...

“Sociology degree - no way”

published 15/09/2006

ProFew unless u want a poor degree

ConsBad course - staff don't care/can't teach

Few other comments about being a student at Newcastle U and doing sociology. Me too - finished my degree last this year and ok got a 2.1. But no thanks to the staff or courses. Wanted to do PG work but not able to get any grants. Been to some other Us for interviews and found that Newcastle is...

ProVery popular

ConsCold, and has Geordies

I recently had to go up to Newcastle for an interview for Medical School. It was the most hostile atmosphere I have ever been in, but thats just the interview panel (I think). Newcastle had been my first choice Uni for ages, and I had been up there about 6 or 7 times, to the city, Uni, and just...

ProSituated in a fascinating part of the world

ConsNone I can think of.

As a former undergraduate and postgraduate student of Newcastle University, I say it is a good institution with some excellent staff and resources in a fantastic city. Talking to other students from the same courses at other Universities I found that they were less informed and less organised...

ProBooze, Booze, Booze!!!!!!

ConsFat-ass Geordies

After finishing my first year at Newcastle University, I've learnt lots about my course, but more about how to get drunk quickly, and how not to get into a fight with the locals. The locals are great people, and always up for a laugh. The thing is that they often get off their faces, and if you...

A great university, in three years I did learn something useful and came out with a good degree. However most of us are more interested in the night life. Newcastle night life is great, for students there is somewhere to go almost every night of the week. The big student night is wednesday at...
