Overall this course is fun!! My favourite part of this course is to learn about the visual and neural system (gonna specialise in these areas). My personal tutor has been very helpful, kind and supportive. She is always the one I go to if I face any difficulties or need advice. read more

Cannot get a biomedical job with this degree. Other universities offer accredited degrees which this is not. It was a waste of 3 years for me and I wish I went to a different university. The teaching was poor and staff were unhelpful and hostile. read more

I enjoy my course and find the content really interesting. Sometimes the quality of teaching can fall down during practicals and write ups as you dont get much help and are expected to do a lot within short amount of time during and after for the lab reports. I am not sure what i want to do after my degree. read more

Very interesting course that is mostly biology based. No optional modules in first or second year and first year and the first half of second year are taught with all the other medical science courses so there are many opportunities to make friends even with people who aren’t on your course read more

I just hate the uni. I hate the course. I liked it at first but it slowly got worse as time went by. It's like your high school all over again, but much worse because an even bigger amount of time is spent on sitting on your bum listening to a guy/girl drone on. It's a nightmare that lasts 3 years. I will say tho you will get good job prospects. The careers service is excellent. And there are lots of career opportunities. It's just you'll be so depressed and stressed you might not even care by that time anyway. I hate this uni. I hate this uni. It looks so pretty. And it still is. But I hate it. Honestly the only way to like living here is if you've got a great social life. And that depends from person to person. I'm sorry Newcastle. I swear I wanted to like you. But I am not being facetious when I say everyday feels like I'm waking up in hell, ready to be punished day in and out, until my relief when I fall asleep again... read more
