everything very heavily based around nightclubs, not easy to socialise due to accomodation being spread around the city rather than altogether, was also mostly locals attending the uni who lived at home making it less social
The students union is an excellent social hub for meeting new people and is also a great place to relax through the week, putting on several events in the evenings on a regular basis (e.g. karaoke). The staff in the entirety of the university and students union are friendly and approachable, the library is an excellent place to revise and buildings such as the business and engineering buildings have excellent facilities. The Internet is widely good however can drop in and out and the food in the students union is excellent too.
I'd really reconsider if you're going to decide on this university. It sounded great when I was choosing it. However, once I enrolled and started it was a very different story. Lecturers themselves are great, just seem to be under pressure and management that is more interested in money and figures than anything else. Feedback, even for decent / excellent marks is brutal and insulting. Student 'ask for help' services are terrible and not helpful, their finance team and interested in getting every penny out of you they can, and insisting they're correct when overcharging on fees, promised great career prospects, however upon starting the course was informed that less than 12% of graduates in our subject area manage to get a career out of it, and that's just the very top of the ice berg. If your set on coming to the north east seriously consider the other universities, having worked and studied at the others they are definitely much better choices.
A brilliant university; I'm really glad to have come here. A large campus and everything is easy to get access to! There's a 24/7 Library as well as a university shop,bar and student union in the same area
Newcastle is an amazing city to be able to live in and Nirthumbria university provides countless opportunities for you to get involved in societies, clubs and other activities, at Northumbria your degree is just the beginning
All the facilities you could need with award winning gym and library. Lecturers extremely helpful and take time to help you. Student feedback is wholeheartedly welcomed and action taken upon the feedback which is extremely refreshing! Nightlife is quite frankly the best in the UK.
You can do an MLAW course which incorporates your undergraduate with a masters level qualification and either the bar professional training course or the solicitors route
The lecturers are great most of them in the law school are solicitors or barristers some still practicing.
The law block is brand new and has mock court rooms
Sports central is brand new and has great facilities
There's always plenty of the books needed for the course at the library

Cons? The main library is always pretty busy
The pool is open to the public so in the evenings it gets pretty busy
