Great uni, lovely people! Staff are all very friendly
Great University that cares for student welfare and offers help with everything needed
Love the uni, love the course, amazing city
Lovley environment and great people everyone seems to get along and the town is always busy. Plenty to do and lots of areas to study and socialise. Sports teams and society’s are good as they also allow you too socialise w similar people
Newcastle University's library is really good and all my teachers are knowledgeable. They can provide any assist whether on life and study.
I think my university is definitely one of the best in the UK. It cares for each and every one of us equally and is always there when we need it.
Lovely experience, inclusive and a nice town to live in
Great uni in a great city, wouldn’t go anywhere else
Classroom facilities are very modern and beautiful, the only disadvantage is that sometimes the WiFi is unstable.
I think this university is very good
Good learning atmosphere, good library collection, friendly teachers.
It is good experience to live here.
Amazing place to study in. A well equipped university in terms of staff and facilities.
Every one is nice. I am glad to here study! Hope the school to be No.1！
Newcastle University is one the best universities in United Kingdom for both bachelors and masters courses. Newcastle upon Tyne is also ranked one for the best student cities in United Kingdom making it the best place to live.
Med school is really great. Dame Margaret barbour building is the best. Sports facilities are great and great price too. Lovely people. Helpful staff and professors. Gorgeous city. Would really reccomend Newcastle.
The university is a joy to study at.
Great university with lots of help from the lecturerers and really interesting content taught. Really social university and easy to make friends.
Overall the course is interesting, organised, and the teaching is good. In terms of the university and city, it's also great.
Two years in and i am loving Newcastle University the location is fantastic, the campus is beautiful and packed with facilities. Anything i have ever needed i have been able to source one way or another. When it came to online lessons it was clear attempts were being made to continuously improve this new style of teaching. Many agreeable methods were utilised for meetings and sharing work and i think the lecturers were incredibly adaptive. If anything... i have struggled with contacting my personal tutor by email or even in person. (I was beginning to question if the guy was a fragment of my imagination, confined within pre-recorded lectures). But it's not just my personal tutor, other students i have spoken with have had similar experiences. Subject lectures on the other hand have been incredibly helpful! They are almost always on hand seemingly working just as long hours as we do. (For which we are greatful!) They can always come up with a simple solution to your problems.
This is an excellent univeristy.
good uni in a great city. lots to do for learning and fun
Variety of societies and clubs for everyone! The campus is beautiful and conveniently near the city centre for quick meals during lunch break.
very good，I like it here very much.I think it is the best city in England.
Everything is great, I love it!
Newcastle is the best university
Excellent when not on strike Excellent when not on strike Excellent when not on strike
Been a very difficult year of university, missed many lectures and seminars due to constant strike action which is honestly frustrating as a student.
Amazing university ! Couldn’t recommend anywhere else . Amazing location and very helpful staff
I enjoy being at my university it’s good
staff and facilities are great. great central location. great university experience so far
For sport science, it's mediocre
Newcastle University has brilliant facilities across campus with lots of study and social spaces. As a medical student, I feel a bit removed from the university as we are on placement elsewhere.
so happy i ended up here, people are so nice. lots of green areas too
a perfect university to study in.
Cozy, clean and nice accommodation. well laid out common areas and a kind and helpful crew!!
Such a friendly city and university, the campus is a short walk from town and many of the accommodations and the resources and in course opportunities are great
really good uni loved it, great facilities and campus
I would highly recommend Newcastle University. I have spent almost 2 years here and find the level of teaching to be of a very high standard, as is the university's commitment to student wellbeing.
It’s an Alreet uni yeah I enjoy it.
Great university, staff members are so knowledgeable about their subjects and their commitment to providing good quality education makes life at Newcastle uni so great
I'm enjoying studying here. Respectable university, great social life and lovely campus.
Great city ! Love the university
Brilliant campus and facilities
Great university and staff. Happy to have picked the uni.
Good university and provide good facilities.
Everything at school is fine. It's what I expected.
Nice university, i hope to graduate soon
good place to study and easy to navigate
I do not have many contact hours at all so I can’t rate the campus. Lots of my friends are involved in the student union and say it’s good fun. The library resources are good but it’s always far too busy especially in Philip Robinson. Always seem to have issues connecting my laptop to the wifi which is really inconvenient in lectures as even when I manage to get the wifi to connect it tends to drop!
A good university with a nice atmosphere and nice building
Great university . . . . . . . .
I’ve had an amazing uni experience!
Love it! It’s very nice and staff are super helpful. The library is so much better than what I expected!
The facilities are good. My lecturers are very supportive and so are the other members of staff that I have interacted with.
Great first semester at Newcastle University
so far my experience at newcastle university has been great. The campus is so nice and the lecturers are extremely helpful
University is great but student union could be bigger and to have better food options than burger and fries (which aren't in a students lunch budget).
Great university friendly staff
Loved my experience so far at Newcastle University :)
High standard of teaching along with great facilities which are constantly being upgraded they are hardly any complaints!
Good university. Well organised, lots of support for students.
Great University, happy with my choice!
Good location, all my buildings close together. Plenty of social activities take place.
I’m really enjoying my time at newcastle university! I’ve found the content of my lectures really enjoyable and the support has been amazing! There are lots of societies to join and these do social events very often which makes it really easy to find likeminded people!
Great campus, very friendly and great help from everyone at the university. Easy to follow timetables and great access to extra help.
Hard working lectures who put 100% and try alot of teaching methods to keep us engaged.
The uni is generally pretty good. The academic facilities and teaching are good. I'd say there is something left to be desired by the students Union as I have been here for 3 months and only been once as there's not much going on there. I'd say the societies are the highlight of my uni experience though, I love my societies and they make the week bearable.
Very nice university with a beautiful campus. Sometimes difficult to find certain rooms or entrances to buildings but generally quite easy to get around.
Great university with good facilities and staff
Pretty good but disorganised at times, and any cost cutting measure they have will come back to bite them
Amazing experience, the Newcastle university dental school is hard, but they support you throughout the whole experience
Pretty good nothing to complain about
Great social life, lovely campus, lots of places to work
I love my uni and it's great, though the internet can sometimes be dodgy when 200 students log in at the same time
Stage 2 student, finally allowed to explore the campus. The facilities are modern and look great, it's very comfortable to study here. Teachers are helpful. Clubs and societies are little weird, I found it little difficult to join some. There is not too many either.
Great learning experience. The campus is beautiful and the facilities for study are great.Career services are helpful to me.
Great University, lots of clubs and activities to get involved in.
Lovely place to live, the nightlife is amazing
I have really enjoyed my time at this university the city is lovely the facilities are very good and the people are very friendly
Mixed experience on campus overall
I study at Northumbria University Newcastle on the Interior Design course and i love it. It's the perfect place for all things design. The facilities and staff are the best you can get and they make the studying side of Uni so much easier. I'm very happy that i chose Northumbria to study at.
Deciding to come Newcastle University was the best decision I have made, I am currently a first year student studying International Business Management with French and my course lectures and seminar leaders are so helpful and are always just an email away to answer any questions i may have The main campus itself is absolutely gorgeous and I sometimes even love to just go for a walk round campus it’s that lovely! I have my business lectures on the new modern campus which is across the road from St James’ Park stadium and next to my accommodation and the business school which is super handy for my education! I would highly recommend this university for maximum enjoyment and outcome😁😁
Really nice Uni but SU is very poor. Bands playing unknown and not student focused at all
It is very good and they have all the facilities and societies you could want
Amazing uni, great campus and location in town, with amazing module and programme leaders
So happy with my choice to study at Newcastle. Obviously the past year has been very different and we haven’t been on campus, but my experience so far this year has been great. Lovely members of staff, really great facilities (especially the labs and medical building as this is where I am based), and great breadth of knowledge delivered across modules.
Exellent place to live, couldn’t have found a better place to be for my first year at uni!
I’ve had a good experience in my first few weeks
Very supportive and all very friendly, no issues
The university is amazing! The facilities and support is fab
Full of wide range of people and things to experience. Lecturers are all friendly and helpful and the tutors are willing to listen and talk. The student support is phenomenal and have helped me through a lotm
Good teaching with a good campus and a friendly feel.
Good friendly staff and diverse campus with society opportunities
They have been so accepting of international students and has been so fun in my time here. I can’t wait to make the most of it :)
Such a pretty campus. Classes are great. Professors are super helpful :) NUSU is also incredible
Best decision of my life.. teaching and management team are equally great! Lucky to be here! Thank you all!!
Amazing university. Can’t fault it.
The most beautiful and comfortable place to live in.I would definitely recommend this place and the staff is really friendly and helpful so glad I booked my place here.
Really great university, only down side is inconvenience of strikes but can’t complain when they’re fighting for things that are very much required (equal pay for all staff).
Can’t really rate the uni campus facilities because of covid.
Being part of Team Newcastle has changed my life and I wouldn’t want to have missed out on any of it!
I dont have many things to say as I was studing during COVID 19. I feel frustrated as I did an online course but I pay the fees of an PIP course. During this time I havent access to any of the facilities or the labs - BUT I PAY- for them. I recognise that this wasn't only Newcastle Uni problem as other Universities follow the same approach but still is a negative point. I use also the career services which was an interesting experience initially, but after a while, when you get deeper into the job interviews process, they cannot help you much. It didn't help also the fact that in every appoitment with the career service you meet a different consultant, so in a short meeting you had to explain again from the start yourself and your aims. Overall, I could say that I had an average axperience with the Uni as I believe the could much more to support the students during the pandemic.
Great facilities and career service however let down by their response to COVID
Newcastle is a good city to live and study.
The apartment is close to the school and the staff is very friendly and professional
Great university, great location.
Beautiful university!! Campus is lovely
Enjoyed it before covid but ever since the pandemic response has been poor. Wouldn’t say I’d choose this university based on the institution.
Great university with great student services,
Staff is always available, it's also easy to get in touch with university services as well as the students union. There are many spaces where to hangout within the university and study/socialise and they're all brand new.
very friendly and helpful staff
It was was clean with beautiful buildings
Havent had a uni experience only for required practicals & don’t rate it at all
Hard to say for this year really, as I havent been into the building once. But in general... it's good.
Don't really have mutch to say given this year with the covid stuff so Iv not spent mutch time on campus or interacting with the uni outher than the libery
Good societies, good for sports,
A nice campus with all facilities needed, look forward to being able to use them next year.
So glad I decided to do my undergraduate studies at Newcastle university. Could not have had a better experience
Facilities are nice but hard to access with covid
Really loved Newcastle university so far and would definitely recommend the city and the university to anyone
Good facilities with big library with lots of places to work and lots of recourses
Loving my time at Newcastle, the staff and support are great, would deffo recommend!
Great uni, would highly recommend
Newcastle Uni has a great campus
I’ve had a good time at Newcastle they have lots of different services to help with everything you could possibly need at university
I really love this university, honestly not a bad thing to say about it!
Things are not modest in the university.
I am really looking forward to offline study with cohort and teachers. I hope the situation will be better along with the pandemic passes.
Very beautiful campus and I enjoy the studying atomosphere, people around are friendly, carrier service is offered from day 1 you become a member of the university, you could get excellent support from the Student union also!
The professors at Newcastle are very friendly and the students are very talkative
Because of the epidemic, I have not visited the campus carefully.However, I was impressed by how responsible the teachers and staff were.I am looking forward to getting to know the school.
Newcastle University is a world-famous place for students from all over the world.
It is quite good to study at Newcastle University, and the study here would be wonderful if I could study in the classroom, but the zoom class had been accepted now,
Haven't really done much due to COVID-19 so I can't review much. They tried in some aspects but they've slacked in others.
Due to covid I haven't been able to experience any of these a single time
good facility and good support
Amazing University with very competent staff at all levels. Offers a variety of extra curricular options as well
Newcastle university has heen known for it's research strength and achieving staff. However, the experience hasn't been fully experienced because of the pandemic.
facilities are good. enjoyed my first year
It's been an overall positive experience so far.
The university overall provides good facilities, lots of study spaces and good wifi
I had all my lectures online this year. At the beginning of this academic year, the university experienced a huge cyber attack which affected quite a lots of functions on the website. Fortunately, it didn’t affect much about the lecture delivering. I didn’t have many opportunities to use the facility in campus due to the pandemic. But now, the campus is reopening and I think it will be fun to go and check
Lovely university. I like it very much
It's a great experience studying there. The campus and the facilities are very easy to access and more advanced. The staffs are very much understandable and helps us in every possible way. We also have our student unions and counsellors to resolve our issues and also to improve ourself. We do have English courses separately for international students.
Studying Dance, an amazing course with small classes and the best teaching
The university have done their best out of a bad situation and have really enjoyed by experience
Love the campus, so beautiful and everything within walking distance. So many clubs and societies to choose from and the students union is great, so many food options and great study floor. Careers service helped a lot with my cv.
Newcastle University has been an amazing experience and I have met some lovely people. The pandemic has been difficult but my accommodation and the people I live with has made my experience enjoyable. Overall I am satisfied with Newcastle but obviously with Covid we have not been able to get the full experience with societies and activities.
Poor Wi-Fi within the building, not ideal when you are a digital student working towards a deadline! I enjoy my course and building in general however cannot say the same for the rest of the campus.
Even though corona stopped any sort of in person teaching, I still enjoyed my 1st year.
Don't even give a minute to think this is the place you want to be no matter what !!
The campus is beautiful and the staff is very friendly. This university is very suitable for study. I'm sure everyone will like it here.
Loads of pros and cons to it all, but you're not here to hear me rant. I love this uni first because it allows me to combine topics that I can't really do elsewhere. Met really good people here; lecturers, my tutor, peers and friends. Really good societies and clubs like Blank Canvas, Fashion, Anglo-Japanese and Anime Society who have honestly been a great part of me being sane during covid. The NUSUBAMEcommittee is precious. Not too pleased about the university not listening enough to lecturers(which is why they went on strike). The whole 9k for what too...crying in international student (22k). Not being able to go to labs but maintaining that the quality of learning is the same... (all unis, but I digress), basically teaching myself(more than usual) online because of technical issues during lectures or recordings or just feeling depressed...I get that it is not their fault covid exists, but can they (those in charge)work with us... On the plus side, the gym is now finished...or not
Had the perfect experience here, great facilities for studying and staff are very helpful.
Was perfect before the pandemic
Newcastle university is amazing. Spent my best year here, great place to study. Beautiful campus, close to some nice cafés.
I did not have the chance to use any of the universities facilities because of Covid
Good campus with great tutor! Excellent experience .
The staff are great and really friendly.
Good university for the most part.
It’s really great at newcastle
Great University! I really like the campus
I have limited experience due to the lockdown. They closed the main library which was frustrating
Due to the lockdown, I have not had the chance to been to campus much but overall the facilities are new. Not much chance to join clubs and societies either, but I was lucky to be elected as a committee member of a society under the Student Union. I would defo recommend the Careers Service, the team provided me with good advice and guide me on my application of postgraduate schemes!
large campus which is spread out. good facilities
Due to COVID I have not visited the campus as all lessons are cancelled so can not make an accurate review yet.
great campus experience and quality education
have not really been able to go to school due to covid but seems rather decent
Not having much campus experience due to the pandemic. But the University is pretty and big
The teachers are excellent and the care from my course leader is brilliant, but the university support itself is weak. Personal problems are met with minimal support, and the university did not provide me with any accomodation.
Great university, great city, despite coming here during covid I’m having a great time in Newcastle and would recommend it to anyone.
I haven’t been to the uni yet as in lockdown but I hope to within my 3 years at the uni!
Havent been on campus so cant comment, same for societies and clubs and studnet union
Didn't get the full experience yet, but perfect for now
Have not been to the campus on the inside yet, but it looks really nice from the outside. The clubs and societies are nice but COVID-19 restricts the full potential experience one could get from them. The students union is pretty good and sends student deals through email. Careers service website was down for a while and there are no other substitutions for that, but there are industry guest speakers and information provided through online events. Did not use the internet or wifi yet. Overall it's good and the quality of studies is also good, or at least considering the current conditions caused by COVID-19
Haven’t experienced internet much as haven’t been on campus
Teachers are teaching so well in class even it’s online now! Uni Is also providing excellent experience and opportunities for students!
Great worth it all, I would definitely recommend foe a friend
World class experience and teachinng
Great university, Great facilities and societies. Only improvement could be the student union. But it’s not important as the city nightlife is incredible
Very pretty buildings but haven’t used the unis facilities due to corona
Campus atmosphere has been nice when I’ve visited
Very aesthetically pleasing, but haven’t been to the campus a log
Library and study spaces provided by the university are very good. Excited to start playing sport post covid
Great lecturers very understanding and there are very good student wellbeing facilities
Great, absolutely loved every minute of it!!!!!
The facitilites teaching and careers services are really great. Clubs and socs are fun and varied
Very very very very very very very solid
Love the city and uni! Its so good!
It’s a good university with lots of great facilities and support for students
I haven’t been on campus yet
No social aspect at the moment
Handling covid 19 situation really well. Great support.
The facilities are amazing, really nice campus. Enjoying all my sports clubs and I have joined some really good societies. The wifi is also amazing in my accommodation and library
Good service for online learning
Love Newcastle! Beautiful city and campus
WiFi is better than WiFi in accomdation
Corona response not very supportive, online teaching standards not great.
Verde is very nice I enjoy living here
Nice university, good communication and good teaching
Lovely University, in an amazing location, huge campus with plenty of amazing facilities.
Newcastle has been great so far
It is difficult for me to speak of my experience, due to corona. I have hardly been to campus and haven’t fully experienced everything yet. However, with any issues I have had everyone has been very accommodating. People here live up to their reputation, it’s a great place and I would thoroughly recommend.
Very enjoyable and interesting course
Great uni experience given covid situation
My uni experience is a little underwhelming at this point given the lack of time being on campus with covid going around and lockdowns, but I think that next year it should prove much more positive
Haven’t been in very much due to COVID
All the service and enthusiasm made me feel warm
Very good location, good sports facilitates
i love my flat .our meals are always good.in the weekend ，we like to invite my friend to eat together.it is nice to take a hot pot.
very good hhhhhh lol love my school
It is very good. I like it so so so much, that is a very good choice.
Not been on campus much however when I do its always a joy, the facilities look great and I can’t wait to use them later this year
Haven’t spent much time on campus but from what I know it seems super modern and contemporary! Some parts are very close which is convenient
I think our university is very very beautiful，and the teacher is very friendly！
Great support from the Linguistics professors.
University has been okay so far
Ive really enjoyed my years at newcastle uni
I think our teachers gave us lots of suggestions on study and they are friendly.
Haven’t really had much experience in university
Very nice and clean and nice and clean
Good facilities and offers lots of variety for everyone
Very good uni with amazing facilities
I haven’t really experienced it bcos everything is closed but it will probably be good when it is open
Been online which has been a let down for the university
Online learning is very difficult!
great university but be careful about private accomodation
Medical students need more in person teaching despite covid- other medical schools are getting much more. Uni campus is lovely
A great university. I've been at Newcastle University for four years and have had the best experience.
Good clean campus but due to corona societies have been cancelled
supportive and adapted to the pandemic condition. lecturers for my course have been helpful and nice
Great uni from the little I’ve seen so far
No, present in person teaching despite the fact government have said it is okay. Watching someone do a lab for 3 hours isn’t the same as doing it. The government have said they understand the value of face to face teaching and Newcastle are not giving us any face to face. It seems very unfair when friends at other unis get to have some face to face while we dont
Good staff, amazing facilities
Great university however it is hard to find things
my university experience has been mostly online but still good
Good building staff are helpful
I’d like to thank them for the help and support during our first few weeks with helping us to adjust to covid regulations at the uni.
The university have been great in keeping us up to date with the ongoing Covid-19 situation.
V good uni, extremely inclusive and have great faciliites
Very good uni, would defo recommend in terms of high quality education and also a nice city in general
There are many resources that the school provides for us, from study to career. Also, it gives us a broad platform to learn from other people.
The university is good but the student accommodation NEWCASTLE 1 really terrible
As an international student, it was the best experience I could have hoped for. There was just so much support available, yet, freedom to make use of it as suited me best. The courses are truly multidisciplinary and with strong links to industry.
Terrible experience with my course - the department of Biomedical science is poorly taught with inept staff members. Lecturers were hostile when approached for help. Facilities were very poor - not enough library space or printers. Very little teaching for what you pay. City is far too small for me but quite nice. Moved to a different university and love it!!!
Excellent- love the online portal and student life is excellent
Great location, lots of clubs to get involved
Great uni love it first choice no regrets
No problems at all with the University.
Great campus facilities and a wide range of clubs and societies to choose from.
Very good uni, but dont stay at the view
Friendly atmosphere, beatiful buildings, huge lecture theaters.
Decent uni with great night life. Could do with more societies and a better student union.
Many opportunities to socialise and learn new skills. Excellent Careers Service and teaching staff!
Pros Enjoying the course and the tutors are really nice. Cons Printers hardly work.wifi is very poor connection.only in 2 days a week with many reading weeks off. Paying 9 grand for 56 days hmmm 🤔
Not the best place to study a degree
I spent a lot of interesting time at my university.
Newcastle Uni really feels like home
So far so good. Campus is in a great location just next to town so there's always something to do in your free time.
In terms of my specific course, it provides exceptional conditions for success within each student, during the university period.
10/10 would recommend to a friend.
I love my school and it will be a good memory
It is a very big school and a lot of the time it feels overwhelming to join societies.
Good WiFi nice place nice sound
Love the uni! It is in a great central location too
I love here because of its educational resources and the building are designed excellent.
Extremely good , student union is great
everything within the university is absolutely perfect
Brilliant university. The campus is really nice and there are loads of societies to choose from.
Newcastle University is a really good uni that maintains its good standards
Good uni. Great socially and goods location near the city.
Newcastle university is a great school with helpful professors. The only downside is some aren’t willing to help outside the classroom
The university is good, it scenic and the buildings are nice (for those i have been in). The facilities for my course are good. The only thing i would complain about it the wifi around campus and when in lectures often it can fail and this means you cannot get the powerpoint up during the lecture.
Newcastle University is very good
I am currently really enjoying my time at Newcastle University.
Such a lovely place to learn, plenty of facilities and a wide range of societies and clubs made it easier to make friends
Uni campus is good and WiFi is strong
I love Newcastle and my university
WiFi could be better and more societies available
Great university, highly recommend architecture facilities.
As involved as you want it to be
My course is really fun and I had a lot of help from the Student union in settling into uni life
Wouldn't think of a better university. Very student-oriented and all is in place so students never feel alone or lost.
Absolutely love everything single thing about this university, I feel grown up yet supported fully.
I love everything about this university.
good here, however wifi could be improved in places
Newcastle is a great university its very clean and the environment is very friendly
WiFi somtimes patchy although generally good. Students Union is helpful and a nice ebcuronmemt
Good uni, nice buildings and friendly staff.
Nice experience studying at NCL uni
Great University and facilities
Excellent uni great campus good ranking
Good university with great location
It is convienice to go to the market or other entertainment locate
All good and everything is great
Final year at Newcastle, the Uni is okay. Definitely better options out there, I'm sure others have had a great experience, I just got unlucky.
Great campus that’s centrally located in the city centre close to everything a student would need and all within walking distance. There’s a huge number of events going on plus loads of clubs and societies to join to socialise and try new things running all through the year. The only downside for me personally is the careers service, from past experiences I’ve just mostly been directed to what’s online which isn’t what I’d expect from a careers advisor.
Many cluster rooms with computers. The library is amazing, open 24/7.
Best art course in UK !!!!!!!!
The sport center is small, there are few basketball court
third year of PhD, and a year of Master previously. I quite enjoyed my journey here.
Good place, good school, good equipment, very kind, everyone is very friendly.
good university the students and teachers here are friendly and helpful
everything is ok.And i reallylike the students here .they are very friendly
Just have started the first year so cannot tell the truth; however I am happy that I was accepted to here. Good environment with warm people. Safer than London, and have pretty looking buildings
No other place I want to study in. Great social activities, balanced with excellent teaching as well!
Best experience so far! The help from the tutors, the library services and the personal tutors is amazing, everyone is quick to help and assist you with essays, language problems (since I'm an international student it was really important) and maths. There's a special aid in the Library where you can get free Math's aid and you can solve problems with a professional. I wouldn't have finished my first year with a 1st class if it wasn't for all the help of the uni facilities and my wonderful tutors. The student Union could have been more active though, with more activities for internationals or in general (shows, quizzes etc ). Definitely join a bunch of societies till you find your fav! I recommend the Comedy Society, everyone is really friendly and you'll get tons of funny experiences and laughs. Τhe nightlife is kind of boring after some point cause there are limited options of clubs (small city problems xd) but you can find your way around house parties and socials.
This university brushes aside student problems at placement host institutions eg harassment of a sexual nature and sweeps problematic and serious issues under the carpet to keep up a lovely publicity front that everything is going on fine .IT IS NOT. Students with unpleasant experiences at their host institutions DO NOT Forget their experiences and this university did nothing except to say sorry for unforeseen circumstances that have befallen on an unfortunate international student .The University can Do MORE to protect female interns at host institutions and future interns. Saying just sorry does not suffice to placate or relieve the frustration , disappointment and anger suffered by an individual . This university needs to set up a help centre and not just refer interns to a website for help should things go wrong. This is really disappointing
Great course and the staff go out of their way to help
The university is beautiful with loads of events with different courses to attend and the city is loads to offer.
In general, it is a lovely university.
I have good wishing abou the acceptance of my request
I have good wishing abou the acceptance of my request
3-4 stars for campus facilities , ZERO star rating for Museum placement module. For students selecting Art Galleries and Museum course :- The department's ignorance on workplace hazards such as sexual harassment in the real Art world increases the risk for female interns . Failure on the university's part to adequately prepare or educate interns result in their safety being compromised. The university needs to ensure a safe academic environment for all students and acknowledge accountability and responsibility if things should go wrong at the host placement institution. Student experiences matter a lot towards a university's reputation and their unpleasant experiences should not be ignored. To think the university values the Art institution partnership more than a student's welfare , unfortunate experience and grievance plea is immensely disappointing even to the extent of appalling. The university needs to address this wake up call to provide more security to interns.
Really nice uni great buildings
Fantastic Uni. Great nightlife. Great people. It’ll be the best few years of your life.
To All Female Fine Arts and Museum internship students reading this review: The course modules and campus facilities are good and wifi connection is excellent however be aware of host institutions that are listed on placement internships for your course module . Sexual Harassment is very prevalent in the Art Institutions in the UK and interns are especially vulnerable to workplace misconduct . Academic institutions in the UK are very slow to address this challenging menace and Newcastle University is no exception. Their risk assessment forms failed to incorporate measures for interns to look into this matter seriously. The so called 'Change the workplace ' culture project that was recently implemented also failed in its outreach attempts to cover all departments . International students are particularly vulnerable as we are not familiar with the UK judicial system and upon further inquiry with legal firms in the UK, and interns not on the employment Act cannot seek compensation.
the campus is great. the people are lovely. the facilities and activities available are awesome.
Compact and very convenient. Perfect for a day full of classes.
Newcastle is a wonderful uni situated in the heart of one of the best UK city's. From crazy night life to relaxing parks, trips to the beach or a casual walk along quayside, Newcastle has it all.
Newcastle university has been above my expectations in every way. I love studying here.
I really enjoyed my time here.
Great lecturers, always happy to help. Intramural sport is second to none. Great facilities and organisations. Had a blast for the last 3 years
Such a lovely university, the campus is amazing featuring works of art from various artists. The university itself seems to have a focus upon giving back to the city, which is great, especially as the city does so much for students. Only issue is the pricing of wristbands etc. for Freshers
Bloody brilliant, I’ve loved every second of being here!
The medical school cares mostly about itself, has felt like there's not been a great support for the students. Usually, it has seemed when one of my peers has been in bother, the medical school have been one for chastising, not for supporting. It's been quite disappointing from that front. The library services are good, shame the decor is a bit plastic. Beautiful main bit of the campus, some of the satellite facilities are a bit ugly. Students' union feels more run for profit than run for students. The services available there, especially printing, are there for the exploitation, not benefit, of the students.
Feels like home. I've had a wonderful experience with Newcastle University so far, through my degree, societies and the city - there's no place I'd rather be.
Fantastic Computer Science facilities. The Urban Science Building was finished in 2018, so it's a very well kept learning environment. Internet for Park View is ridiculously good, with both upload and download speeds. Cannot speak for other accommodations. Great nightlife and filled with students.
Best looking campus in the country, with everything you need. A renowed university lives up to its name and works well with the city and it is the best place to be a student as well.
Very nice campus right next to the city centre which is very convenient especially for nights out. Staff is always willing to help and there is something for everyone to try.
The university makes an effort to make you seem at home, the Student’s Union, is a lovely space in which you can relax and study as much as you wish. The 24 hour study rooms and library are very helpful during exam and essay season.
Everything about the uni is great
Nearly finished my first year and I have loved every second! Campus is amazing, city life is amazing and most of all there is so much help already regarding getting experience on your CV for your future career even if you don’t know what it is! Wouldn’t have gone anywhere else!
Good uni which given me a massive academic support and developed my skills for future career.
Djcn. Fix k cv. Cvvv cvvv cvvv c.
for some reason our eduroam doesnt work at other unis? the students union isnt great- not many people actually go and spend time there. still a lovely uni tho and glad im here
Uni life at Newcastle is a fantastic experience and I would recommend it to anyone looking to come to the city.
Beautiful campus and good facilities
Good except for accommodations
Good place to study But poor accomudation at the View
Not only is the student life enjoyable, but it is also a place where you will be challenged and pushed to your limit
I didn't particularly enjoy my time at Newcastle, feeling more like a number than a student with little in the way of support for those who struggle to keep up and find the balance between work and home life
Good place to study. Careers service is friendly but i did not find their advice helpful
Students Union was good for food and that's about it, the facilities were poor compared to other universities I have visited and the people in charge of running the union were not professional when it came to resolving issues especially with a society I was involved with where they defending students for sending threatening emails to our committee just because the emails were defending someone who had been insulting at one of our events by someone we had no control over.
You could not get a better package anywhere else! Career, Sport, Nightlife and amazing people - it’s all right there!
Just finished my first year; everything was excellent with the slight exception of the accommodation.
AmaZingly welcoming and top quality teaching staff in a great location!
Decent uni. Worst student union known to man
Great experience from a great university
Amazing university, all staff are friendly and are so are the students
A very modern and well equipped uni with lots of opportunities.
Newcastle is the perfect mix of a campus and city uni!
Amazing, friendly university. Lots of things to do and places close by to visit e.g. the beach
Amaaazing, really can't imagine going anywhere else. The people are lovely, so many chances to socialise and a lot of funding for societies so a variety of activities available. Loads of study space such as Philip Robinson Library, Marjorie Robinson library rooms, Law Library, Med Library, Old Library building etc. and with lots of study rooms across campus. Sometimes the wifi messes up for a few hours a couple of days a year but that really is the only downside.
Overall Newcastle Uni is a great place with a lot going on. It is central to the city centre and is a lovely campus to look at. The SU has places to eat and grab a drink, it is a really chilled out environment and excellent for meeting for study groups etc.
Actual star rating: 1/5 - Lots of sex (and cheating) and nightlife goes on here. - My course - biochemistry - was boring as hell. Yes, every single lecturer was boring. About 20% of the class pays attention. Lots skip lectures. Only one lecturer was boring but explained things well. It's just not worth it. I hated my time here. The course is a load of crap for 22k pounds. Jesus, if one hour of self study did more for me than the 5 hours of sitting through lectures, then I really have to ask myself what the **** I'm doing here. All I'm doing is seeing people get drunk literally every day, whilst I spend the same amount as the lectures I just attended, rewatching them on recaps to understand better, at half speed because the goddamn mic is so awful and the lecturer doesn't know how to separate speaking to a colleague and a student. - Also it's frustratingly harder to find people who don't just want to get drunk and s******** everyday (not joking people party everyday here).
Fun and not overcrowded place to study. Great lecturers. The university gives great opportunities for further research as well.
The Wi-fi occasionally disconnects, and despite the great quality of societies I think freshers fair and other big events should be more greatly advertised.
Great university with so many things to do! Careers service has been amazing and actually got me a mock interview. Honestly there's something for everyone here
Great uni with fantastic staff and buildings, very supportive, just a question of whether 9k a year is worth it.
Great University that offers the whole package to its students
Absolutely love Newcastle university
Wifi always available, contact with students from staff isn't great
Solid university with good social support
While the campus facilities and Wi-Fi are fairly ideal, especially the libraries, the social aspects of the university and its Student Union - much like with many universities - are overtly political, in many cases, with some non-political societies excluding members who don't agree with their views. This politicism has infected the Student Advice Centre, who will often respond to problems (for example, in housing) in a brash and aggressive - rather than reconciliatory - way; placing student and landlord in the roles of proletariat and bourgeoisie respectively, and recommending that students take legal action to confront perceived injustices. The Careers Service claims to be accessible, but reality often differs, as students are required to be very specific as to exactly what service they need. Otherwise, they get recommended to simply attend a bunch of workshops.
Love it. Good social life , cheap drink and food and most places are within walking distance.
a nice university! friendly, nice area and lots to do!
I really enjoy being part of sport societies.
Such a fantastic uni with a beautiful campus and loads of activities
Great university, everything is relatively close by with the city being right next to the campus. Societies are welcoming and a lot of fun.
Best university ever. Anyone that says otherwise is a damn liar
Fantastic city to live and study in
The SU is very good - it's ran by students so most of the things you want to do, you can do it. They have a good bar and Domino's and a Subway on campus which is useful, but I haven't used a lot of the services available so I can't comment.
Great uni experience so far in the best city in the UK
Great campus and SU but awful IT service desk for managing the internet. Internet provider is Janus and Janus is notorious for managing to break things or be on the receiving end of a DDoS attack.
Pretty much flawless all around! Only main issue is the internet. Although there is free internet all around the campus, their VPN blocks out the use of Steam and my Wii U and 3DS cannot connect to it either. Otherwise, I cannot complain.
Great atmosphere and facilities.
best uni ever, don't know what its like unless you experience it
I love Newcastle University and the city and the campus and the people... It's just awesome. Couldn't be happier!
Everything is great except there is no Harry Potter society
Good location close to city centre
The gyms not very big at the sports centre and a silver membership seems to be pretty pointless
the overall campus experience is great. Such pretty building with great facilities, starbucks , dominoes and Santander in the union is a massive perk.
So happy with my time at newcastle. Great city, love the campus, so much going on. Would recommend to anyone.
Newcastle is an aight university
Very supportive university, that tries to help you advance your career in every way. We get a lot of career advice and are taught some career skills as part of our course (Psychology). They have some really interesting societies here like Mind the Gap where mental health issues (in the political sense etc.) are discussed. Internet sometimes stops working on my phone but only for a minute or two when I'm walking around campus, not at home. The SU has a little shop with some food and stationary and other things you could need as well as Newcastle University jumpers and other Newcastle clothes. They have a Throwback party every Saturday at the SU and I think other stuff as well.
Internet everywhere, Su js okay but other than that its pretty standard
Everyone is friendly - the student union is always looking for ways to accommodate students whether that's for studying, hanging out during the day or nights out. Awesome city, plenty of shops and stuff to do for everyone.
Having the time of my life, I could not think of a place I'd rather spend my university years. Loving my course, the staff are great and really helpful, There is a society for just about anything and the student services are fantastic. On top of that, the social side of things are great, the union is always fun and has a great atmosphere, plus the society socials take place in one of the best nightlife cities in the UK.
Walking through campus with a nice hot coffee is the best thing on any autumn day. It's so beautiful! Especially at sunset. If you're round at sunset, take a look at the King George VI building.
A lot of student support, a huge range of societies and clubs and right in the center of town for all your clubbing and shopping needs!
Amazing experience, lovely people and great social life!
Best Uni for sure it has an excellent academic and social side to it
so much to join and do, you can do as little or as much as you want! campus is easy to navigate with lots of study facilities and coffee shops to keep you awake!
Newcastle university is great for students with student facilities of the highest standard
The university is perfect in every way you want it to be.
Newcastle is everything I've always imagined university will be like - excellent facilities,social life and beautiful red brick architecture. Campus is conveniently located right in the city centre and yet somewhat separate from the rest of the city, surrounded by parks and greenery.
Newcastle is everything I've always imagined university will be like. It's got a lively social scene,excellent facilities and, of course, the beautiful red brick architecture.
Best Uni I could possibly choose
Everyone is really friendly and helpful. Very cheap and great for student living.
A great university! Great atmosphere and very friendly city!
A university located in a city which is build for students.no need for public transport everything is a 10 minute walk away best night life in UK with the lowest prices
Great uni, and cheap sports tickets from the SU is fantastic!
Great mixture of people from every background you can think of, amazing nightlife and great opportunities for careers and education.
It has the most amazing buildings and so much greenery, even though it's in the middle of the city. It's simply amazing about everything.
A lovely place to stay and study!
Well equipped facilities and university situated right in town, making everything extremely convenient. Greatest student city
What can I say, it's Newcastle
I love Newcastle! Everything about it- the uni, the city, the people, the clubs, the shops, the fast food, the parks, the buildings, even the singing homeless people! It has the best parts of everything; campus is quite central, the city center has a huge variety of shops, the union facilities are great and the Robbo library is huge and modern (if you can get a seat during exam period that is!) The architecture is amazing too, the campus and city are a great mix of modern and old that somehow fits! It's beautiful on a sunny day (which is quite rare for most of the year in Newcastle!) The nightlife is legendary, so many pubs, clubs and treble bars to choose from, and there's always different nights on during the week! You can boogie at swingers, bop to techno at cosmic, jive to soul & disco at Off the Record or rock out at Rebel. Digi(tal) and the O2 academy also mean that lots of big names hit Newcastle on weekends! I'd definately recommend Newcastle to anyone!
There's no swimming pool which I don't think is good considering it's a prestigious university. We need more societies dedicated solely to the consumption of alcohol. We shouldn't have to pay over five pounds to get into our own student union for a night out. When you consider I pay less to go into better unions at other universities for half the price of that at Newcastle it's a bit of a joke. There should be a scheme that allows students to buy a pass at the start of the year to enable free annual entry in addition to other benefits such as free plus ones. That said, the campus is very well kept and it's a nice place to be.
Good City, Nice campus, a few of the accomodation options disappointing, not as high standard as i was expecting but on the whole "very good".
Best decision I ever made was going to Newcastle University!
