Department is friendly and relaxed (although you are expected to work hard as with any other course). Good course content and generally fantastic teachers.

Computer Science, BSc Hons

By Angela On 12th January 16

Lots of course flexibility (can easily change between the other CompSci courses such as Game Programming) as well as the options of combined masters and industrial year which you can switch onto later. Course content is very interesting. Most tutors are excellent with one or two exceptions (Computer Architecture is a pain for most people).

Overall a good experience let down by a couple of lecturers that are either dismally dull or you can't fathom what they're trying to say,

Computer Science, BSc Hons

By Anonymousperson123 On 2nd August 18

Had a large number of contact hours in all of my years which made me feel like I was getting a good value for my money, teaching quality was mostly good other than the occasional lecturer who's accent was too hard to understand, tutors were always helpful, content was slightly outdated but all very useful and the job prospects are some of the best around.

they'll tell you to ask questions when you don't understand then when you do ask questions they start complaining and saying how you don't understand. I think Newcastle university is overrated and too expensive.

Teaching quality can be hit and miss depending on the lecturer, but I don't imagine this is any different with other Universities. You will find lecturers who's style you enjoy and those who you don't. I will say that on average it is pretty good, and the Stage 1 support in place is brilliant for transitioning students. Value for money is a three because University in general is a scam for money - you'll slowly realise that most students pay for Powerpoint driven lectures. I guess the blow was soften a tad with Computer Science given the investment in facilities surrounding it.

Computer Science is a great depairtment. Many of the staff and demonstrators are helpful and kind. The reception staff are fantastic. There are a few staff members which arent helpful at all. But overall i'd recommend computer Science at ncl uni to others.

By GrapeJelly On 9th November 15

Lectures are kept interesting by the great staff, outside work set by module leaders is challenging and helps with learning content. Regular personal tutor meetings mean I'm always able to get help and it is helpful to have an insight into the world of computer science through him given his past experiences.
