I'm currently doing a distance learning course in Mental Heath Policy and Practice over two years and started in February 2007. Essentially this means home study without ever having to go to the university itself, which is helpful since I live in Hertfordshire. You are supposed to attend study...

I must have been one of the few people who didn't enjoy my time at The University of Northumbria at Newcastle. Just the name alone should be a warning - you try writing that out in capitals every time you fill out a form! I think the reason I had such a bad experience, was that I chose Newcastle...

ag students at Newcastle Uni drinking all our beer

I studied Modern Languages and International Finance at Northumbria, in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. To be honest, I loved my time there. The course was perfect for me. I wanted to study languages but not the usual literature as at most other Uni's. I also wanted a degree that would reward my studies for...

Newcastle & stotties

underfunded

“A good experience so far”

nice city, nice university, helpful lecturers

I am studying for a PGCE Secondary Education, and I have one year left. When I first joined Northumbria I was a little apprehensive. This was mainly due to that fact I had never left my home city. However before joining I was constantly on the phone to the university, checking things were in...

Nightlife, Cost

Long way home if your from down south

I am not going to on about the various courses etc. on offer as no doubt if anyone is thinking of going there, they will have done that already. Lets concentrate on the nightlife! Being set in Newcastle city centre, which was after all voted 8th best party city in the WORLD, you are not spoilt...

Newcastle, Nightlife

Everything else......

Northumbria University's motto: Great Learning, Great Experience, Great Future What a load of b0ll0cks! I am currently a student at Northumbria University but thankfully I won't here for much longer. Northumbria University is only good for one thing if you live in the North East, and that is its...

I've just graduated this year and come back home to Edinburgh and I miss Newcastle so much, I'm thinking of moving back! I had the best times of my life at Northumbria and recommend it to anyone. The students union is superb with great nights on most nights of the week, were they also have top...

good people, quality of teaching

split sites

I studied information and library management at northumbria, and then worked for a year as pastoral student worker with City Church, Newcastle. The university is well run, and the course was very well organised. It has since improved to provide an IT route, wher'as before everyone had to study...

Excellent nightlife/won an award

gets overshadowed by "redbrick" uni Newcastle

I studied for an MSc Computing at University of Northumbria at Newcastle. I found that the teaching was adequate on my particular degree course although overall the university has been rated as the Best New University of the year. The main point to take note is that Newcastle is the 7th best...

Nice people, excellent IT/library

Joined Northumbria University to study PGCE Primary. I was warned before I joined the course it was tough, but nothing prepares you for exactly how tough it is. I graduated from uni with a 2.2 and had been a T.A at various schools for 2 years but the work load here was unbelievable. You were at...

Good name in Business School!

Weak IT facitities!

Having studied at Northumbria for about 2 years now, I have to say that I'm pretty glad that I did choose to study there! One, the people are friendly and helpful! The lecturers' are also helpful, although you do get a handful that are useless at teaching. The may know the stuff, but they have no...
