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.
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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
