I am a second year CompSci major. Facilities are great. A lot of equipment (computers, printers, etc) available at CIS building or the library. The library is a great place to study. The clubs for sports are really good, you can try something new or continue practicing your sport in great facilities. Other clubs depend on how active they are, would recommend the salsa club. The gym is great but super busy especially during weekdays. The Career service is helpful, offering one on one help as well as presentations and connection to employers, great help when applying for placements as well. Internet always available and fast. Tutors and professors really vary depending on the module, but they listen to feedback at end of year and support you with any issues. Social events are always being organised. Overall really good.
Tutors are nice and most of them very helpful and want you to do good, ask4help has very slow replies and does not really take into consideration students circumstances but leader of department said she will make sure problems don't happen again. Otherwise people are nice
Lots of student facilities available on campus with a positive working/social life.
Good university and good place to study
Great university to study in with good facilities.
I study Computer Science and the lecturers have been very helpful.
A great university experience, staff are very supportive and willing to help
Overall, good university to study in
I did an MSc distance learning course. I had a terrible experience. Getting any help from tutors or lecturers was very difficult. Lectures were poor quality and I hardly learnt anything for my working career. The university only wanted the money. I would not recommend this university. They couldn't organise a fire in a match factory
Brilliant lecturers with a genuine interest in helping students
Clean, has loads of facilitates to access.
The university system is very good.
great campus and great opportunities available. staff are amazing too
I'm only currently a first year student here but absolutely love it so far - not often on campus due to blended learning style of course but facilities are good
Great uni. Super close to Albert place :)
Everything is ok, except the research methodology team for master level. The module for (Dissertation/ Consultancy / Management Inquiry), is poorly organized and it doesnt provide proper guidance for master students choose the best at Business School.
Love the teaching. Can’t wait to discover more about NU!
Good place to study at! Won't regret studying here!
Aamzing place to study! The facilities like library is definitely a great place to study.
A very well facilities university that gives me no reason to complain about
Friendly staffs and lecturers. Very helpful and accommodating to everything
Amazing experience doing my Bar at Northumbria university
I really like being at this university!
Graphic Design studios, Mac Labs, Photography studios and making spaces are all top of the range, fully kitted out spaces for being creative. The library is also by far the best I have ever used. Staff are always on hand to help and encourage you to make the most of all of the facilities available. Would highly recommend Northumbria to anyone studying a creative subject.
Very good university glad I came here durham h h h h h h. H h h h h. H h h h
Being on the Automotive Engineering course, I have limited experience with most facilities. Those related to engineering however, I can say are great! Workshop available through the week to do whatever you want (drills, belt sanders, etc), 3D printing lab, workspaces with many PCs with more than enough software to tinker with, and labs with more specialist equipment for sections such as fluid dynamics, material engineering, etc. Although I’ve only had the opportunity to use it once, the wind tunnel on campus is a pretty cool feature! I’ve only given the societies/clubs section 4 stars because I’m in a society (go-karting society) and have only done 1 race in nearly 3 years, which is a shame. It may be due to a lack of funding, but there’s been (as far as I’m aware) zero communication on the matter. I think there are a good amount of societies but it’s been a while since I checked. The students union is only rated 4 stars because I don’t have much experience with it, unfortunately.
Great uni, however not there very much due to a lot being online
Love the university facilities and the academics.
My university experience so far has been very promising and I’ve not had any issues yet
Very encouraging lecturers and great facilities.
Northumbria University is a modern and organised university. The university supports its students in every way possible and tries to make the students’ experience as enjoyable and educational as possible.
I love going into university, especially my building. I have my own space and access to everything I need. Me and my friends meet at habita for social time - its great !
great uni, great sense of community
I love Northumbria university, the lecturers are really good and the students are nice! The sports centre has almost everything a student needs. Ayub Benlahcene, Camden Court
Northumbria University offers a wide range of services and clubs that you can us/join whilst doing your course. The staff are really helpful.
Good facilities with plenty of things to do on campus
Northumbria University is a good place for international students
A great university but I feel my experience is not as good due to starting mid-pandemic
Great university to study at and definitely would recommend
Good uni, nice helpful staff especially for careers advice
Really fantastic university, only issue I have is that your mobile data doesn’t work in certain parts of the building (you’re encouraged to use the universities Wi-Fi instead) but other than that the staff and utilities are fantastic
Overall good experience, had nothing to complain about!
Northumbria is a decent university
Best university for anyone planning to study
Good university very accessible
Very safe site, loads of facilities and the location is amazing, 5 minute walk from the city centre
Just everything you'd want from one good teaching fun staff and help
nice campus, Habita the student union bar is great.
Brilliant ethos at Northumbria University, allowing students to enjoy their time whilst studying.
Wasn’t originally my first choice but they have worked really hard to ensure that I get my degree. Very social and great location. The campus is clean and easy to get around
Nice, helpful people, new and beautiful environment, amazing staff!
A very Morden university with great on campus facilities
Good supportive teachers and environment but can be quite unorganised at times in certain areas. Overall though, a good experience and I’m excited for the rest of my time here
I really like being at Northumbria. SU is better at other unis but the city makes up for it
Fast WiFi but library gets busy near exam time.
Class uni with a very social student union and plenty societies
The university is great, the gym, swimming pool, and city centre location are ideal.
Great uni wot h great facilities and staff.
Amazing university with lots of help provided
The campus is well organized and has all the resources needed for a flawless study session
Very social place for new students. Quite modern and very good for making friends
Perfect university! An amazing range of societies and such enjoyable lessons!
I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience so far at Northumbria university, with the countless opportunities as well as all that comes along with it
Excellent uni. Staff are all so helpful
I've loved my time at Northumbria university so far. My course has been amazing and really engaging; the range of societies and sports available to me just makes everything better.
Northumbria University has a range of different resources to have fun on campus! There are so many different events happening + things to get involved in. It is very lively, and there is lots of academic support also.
University campus is great and is just a five minute walk from quay point studios
Great uni and fantastic staff who have been helpful throughout my first semester
Students union is very good and has a lot to offer. The campus has good facilities and a modern library open 24 hours.
lecturers are really friendly and always there to help
Northumbria is a good university spacious and places to work.
Facilities are all amazing! Very nice and friendly staff
Very good uni, would recommended to others when choosing for next year.
State of the art university, with an open minded approach to all of the 21st century trends.
Very helpful and lecturers are good
Great Uni with really friendly staff and lecturers . Aswell as an amazing campus with everything you need.
Currently loving it here , the people and atmosphere is great not much improvement needed
Great student support and lovely staff
Very welcoming and inviting university. Education standard is high with the help and support available when needed.
Northumbria university and newcastle as a city has become a home away from home with no problem ever too big
I have been attending borthimbria for 4 years and it has been an experience to never forget. I have made friends that I will have for life
Northumbria is a great uni. It has a lovely campus and had great clubs. Plus Newcastle is a great place to live.
University is great, very modern, the societies available make it such a good place to meet people and the union to a lot to ring the different courses together with habita and freshers events
A respectable university with pleasant staff and good facilities.
The Univeristy is a great central hub to make friends through engaging courses and a wide variety of events, societies and sports clubs to join to make friends and learn new things
Everything is close together making it highly convenient and the student vibe is very friendly. Highly recommended
Fab university with great facilities
Fab uni, people are a little bit snobby but generally sound.
The university is in a brilliant location close to the city centre and student accommodations
its a cool uni but would of been better if it wasnt for covid obviously
The university has a lot of opportunity to meet people with lots of socials and great night life
Although my first year was tough due to Covid and cyber attack being back in person is so much better. They have helped so much with technical issues, student mental health and overall welcoming us back to campus
I have enjoyed my study with Northumbria, There are various clubs and societies. In addition, the teaching faculty are understanding and friendly. The university is modern and has many sites for students to enjoy. In addition, there are plenty of free courses and trainings. The highlight of my journey is that the university actually listens and cares about the students, they are not following some rule book. Actually they are flexible and modern.
The uni could likely do more for students
All I can say is that Northumbia University is top notch
Nice friendly place to study and meet people before covid
Glad i came to Northumbria University
Fabulous uni with great support. Highly recommend
Staff are extremely unhelpful and unsupportive, ask4help sucks. The gym is good, campus is nice with lots to do but courses need a lot of work on
Great friendly university to study at
They provided good enough information for me to get through the lockdown studies.
Great facilities and helpful professors.
Great uni but lacking in certain areas
It’s a decent uni. I’m on a science course and the staff are a mixed bag. Some excellent, most good and some terrible
Haven’t been to the university but looks good
Really friendly staff and a nice location.
I have enjoyed my time at Northumbria University in the main. Being involved on campus in societies, making use of the library and computer areas for work, and having some lecturers who were really influential in my 2nd year was great. My last year hasn't been as great due to covid restrictions and a feeling of being disconnected from uni life.
Great facilities. I love the gym as it's absolutely massive and the teaching is at a pretty good standard
Very good University, seems to be anyway as I have not had one lesson inside.
Great place to study and socialise
Assessments are quite clear and easy to understand, tutors are helpful
Without a doubt, the greatest place to stay in Newcastle as a student. All of the staff are really pleasant and go out of their way to make you feel at ease. The facilities are fantastic, and you'll have everything you need to excel at university. I would really suggest it.
Good university with good accomadations around it and great distance from town
This is an amazing university with lot of career options. Staff are really friendly and caring which makes you prepared for any sort of issues with all modules.
Everything about this university is good.
good supportive uni, helpful staff and good facilities within both camps'
It’s a great place to study, they provide plenty of assets for you to use no matter which field of study you’re in
Northumbria University has excellent space for socialising as well as friendly and approachable staff and students. From the first year I joined (2015) I loved Northumbria and have ended up pursuing a PhD at the university. The facilities in the engineering and environment faculty are also excellent.
The University is able to provide support to its students and kept everyone in loop for any updates.
Great university with good facilities and good experience
Good i dont believe it good i don't believe it
I didn't go to college much due to COVID so i can't say much about the campus.
Very kind and accommodating staff
Northumbria uni is great and in a great location
Nice atmosphere, great facilities and approachable lecturers
Fabulous library services and ask4help service for any help needed.
I have placed this review under Northumbria University as it is the school that SGU has a partnership with for pre clinical years in the UK. SGU is an international school that offers students the opportunity to study in different areas of the world. Preclinical or clinical years could be done in the UK, Grenada, India, and the US. There are many electives that can be done around the world -Prague, India and certain countries in Africa to name a few. All in all SGUs goal is to expose students to different cultural experiences so that student can be prepared for the workplace. (Not because they have encountered every culture but, because they understand the beauty in other cultures.)
So far as of now online classes were conducted effectively whilst student help services were readily available a few clicks away 24/7. Looking forward to the total reopening of campus facilities.
Great uni, feels like a proper community!!
I can’t really say much, I didn’t use much of the facilities due to covid and things, but it’s a well kept place.
the facilities that i have used, which has been limited, are very good
I’ve only been on campus for one semester between Sept-Dec 2019 because then everything closed when COVID-19 hit, the internet can be a bit slow, especially when everybody’s trying to get on it in the lesson/workshop. But it’s spacious and pretty and very modern compared to other campuses.
Enjoying my course! Difficult to communicate with tutors online but they are helpful
Northumbria University great place to do your degrees its big and lovely.
It is a a good uni that provided the course I wanted
Poor quality of teaching especially over lockdown as everything has been moved online. They have very little respect for the student voice and the year reps. Communication is very poor, I'm in my second year and still haven't been given a proper tutor. Complaints and issues are very slow to be dealt with. Online learning was slow to develop structure and many are really behind in work and understand very little. I study Mech Eng and compared to my friends at Newcastle I really don't know anything about Engineering. I've never been able to use the workshops. A lot of the course so far has been self-taught due to poor lecturers. Lots of theory, hardly any practical. Very little funding and equipment is outdated. I really wouldn't recommend this university.
The university is extremely unorganized and my program is a joke. There are certain things that aren’t affected by COVID, but the university has been using it as an excuse. A lot of the Uni spending goes into advertising and marketing itself as being student friendly and being the top new university, but it’s all a lie. Seriously, go elsewhere.
If you are someone with working experiences and intend to pursue for a business postgraduate study , please consider any other university than Northumbria University. If not, please get ready for the disappointing and annoying moments with their work processes, and irresponsibility!
Had the perfect experience here, great facilities for studying and staff are very helpful
Very happy and satisfied with my uni. Unfortunately couldn't do or attend the campus so far this year....
Very kind, helpful and friendly staff that will help with any problem you have. Good facilities at the uni for study and working in uni
Perfect truly helpful university and staff are very friendly
I have been living here for few years since I was a undergraduate student. To be honestly, I do love The Foundry and Newcastle city, as I have spent plenty of precious time during these years. The foundry is a lovely family, usually they will offer us many opportunities to explore our world, such as "welcome party", "New Years celebration" etc, I have to say they are hugely helpful to release our stress, especially after tired studying life. Most important things is The Foundry always keeps our living environment as a high standard and first priority, regularly checking the fire alarm, weekly cleaning... Anyway, I must say it is really enjoyable and grateful for living here as part of our big family, appreciating all the stuffs's efforts (Zoey and Sean). highly recommended and have a nice experience, all the best~
Good university with a lot of courses to study from but it would improve students’ experience if there were more societies.
As an international student, Northumbria Uni was honestly very welcoming. The staff were always dedicated in assisting anyone who faced any type of difficulties. The facilities available at campus is amazing as well. Best choice I made.
Haven’t really had much of an experience due to COVID but staff have been nice enough
It’s a great university and worth studying for
Good Infrastructure and ambience
Great Uni and the law school is impeccable, the staff are so relatable and helpful!
Lovely staff and students. The location of the university is central so all amenities are at hand.
helpful , with lecturers always being quick to reply
Northumbria is a great university with an excellent library & sport facilities. It has a friendly atmosphere & is located in an excellent city.
My uni is so good, great staff, and friendly
I like my university very much I would even go as far to say I love it
Great place with lots of support
Haven’t been very good with clubs this year
Good learning experience and supportive staff
Its a really great university which shows that they really care for their students and they try their best to help you reach your best
Great University filled with all the support and facilities you need!
Best University in Newcastle upon Tyne
I love living here it’s so nice
Very good uni. Made extra efforts during COVID to help students out with food and supplies etc
The virus has changed the experience for our year however I’m still enjoying the experience and can’t wait for the future
I haven’t been able to go much, but when I have it has been great and I have enjoy it fully
Good facilities and excellent student union
i love it so much it’s been the best choice of my life
Mint the best accommodation for student life
Internet very fast and the facilities are amazing such as the gym
Best uni going, though rough at the moment following recent events
Haven’t been able to go into uni, online teaching has been terrible, students union has done nothing for us
Had no problems so far, clean, safe and easy experience
haven’t had a chance to use any of the facilities due to covid but have heard good things from past students
Brilliant uni. Have dealt with COVID perfectly
I have just started and the uni have been really helpful in supporting us during online lectures
I feel part of the Northumbria family
Such a good location and the business school is a lovely campus
Campus has everything I need, got a good atmosphere. Never had a problem with internet and I love my sports club.
Modern law and business school facilities
Haven’t been in to the uni itself yet so it’s hard to review but online lectures have been very helpful and the lecturers all seem professional.
No bad words to say about Northumbria, I would have preferred to see more of it this year but will COVID that is not possible.
First year doing cyber security and the modules have been really fun and rewarding. I feel like I'm making a lot of important progress and I can't wait for second year
They offer excellent facilities especially for my design course.
Amazing university with plenty to do, very sociable
Campus is nice and new. There is quite a lot of social life so atmosphere is good. Lecturers are good and explain well. The only thing pointles imo are most seminars
dropped out due to no student support
Unis great and give loads of support
Great Uni but stay away from Portland green student village they made the whole first year of uni awful. Uni is great though
Great university to complete your studies and achieve your dreams.
Great place to meet different people from different cultures
Not much to say on the uni, theyre the same as any other. Help is there if you need it, and no doubt they’ve done the best they can with the current situation.
One of the best experiences of my academic life.
- staff are really helpful - facilities are great
Amazing and close to everything
Great University and facilities
I cant speak for all departments, for obvious reasons, but Northumbria University Physics and Electrical Engineering facilities, staff, support, resources and accessability are on point. If you come to university with the aim of achievement, Northumbria physics lecturers, inspire and illustrate the subject in a way that makes you love it.
Only here to review Trinity Square accommodation
It has been a fantastic experience studying at Northumbria!
I am loving my experience at Northumbria. Weekly quizzes at Habita are always fun, support is great from the students union. The library facilities are outstanding and the societies are a lot of fun
Northumbria is great, well worth going. Can take part or blend in and still have a good time.
Northumbria university is great
Love the campus! Very friendly atmosphere
Good place to study. Would recommend
everything is good, a lot better than i expected
The coach lane campus is quite old and think needs the same renovations as the city campus, travelling is slightly inconvenient but not an issue due to being able to get the free number 1 bus
Good uni but not enough communication between the students and staff
Great university and facilities but the wifi is poor
Brilliant campus, brilliant staff
Good support systems set in place and easy to navigate
The university has friendly academics and pushes you out of your comfort zone for personal development
I have really enjoyed my 1st year at Northumbria University. However i‘m at Coach Lane and feel very secluded and like i’m not part of northumbria uni
A good location with better environment to study and make friends
The coach lane campus is not very good. It is expensive and not good to access
i dont ever use the student union or use many of the northumbria sport facilitys but the debate soicety is good and Habbita has cheap enough drinks. Being in the Design building the facilitys and buildings are really good however the lipman building is very confusing
Great university with thousands of courses to choose from and lecturers go above and beyond as well as guidance counsellors
the campus being located in the city centre is great as everything you need is within walking distance, the students union has a nice atmosphere too
It’s fine. Not great, just fine. Not many opportunities for international students.
Great university, I love the architecture and the facts that a lot of computers are available for students.
I love the student life and the university
Ths campus I am attending is in London.
Rating all 1 star / the above categories are irrelevant from the quality of education/ programs at this University. I am doing a part time masters in the London campus (Computing and Technology). I am frustrated with the Uni so far, I can just hope that it will get a bit better in the future. When I applied I specified to the program manager that I was interested in programming and cryptography. There was a Cybersecurity module -but did not touch cryptography but rather information governance with standards and procedures. Current module is Leadership in Digital Age...the assignment asks students to take verbal and logical reasoning tests and do a personal development plan. The mark will be on how much one is prepared to be a leader or not. This is such a bad joke and a waste of money. Teacher is extremely arrogant and communication is always a problem. There are no exams, just assignments one submits at the end of the module. I am not enjoying it or learning so far.
Great facilities, the Business School is next level in terms of design and ambience. Love the city and friendliness of people, including professors. Definitely recommend this uni even though it sits on quite low world ranking which doesn't really depict its real value!
Its okay university has nice events
Good location, good facilities, lecturers are hit and miss.
Best university and city for students
I am having the best time of my life now that I am studying at Northumbria University Newcastle. I find my course very interesting and my tutors seem to be passionate about their job which makes my experience even better!
Really good facilities. I love my course
I absolutely love Northumbria. The only thing that needs an improvement are the mental health services. The counsellor I had a therapy with seemed unconcerned and useless
Overall I am happy with my university experience
a great university with lots of help from all lectures and a good support base including lessons which help you learn how to note take and revise as well as online access to all lectures and information about the course
The new Architecture studios are one of the best in the UK with fixed space for every student. The campus is realli close to the city centre which is great if you want to live close both to the University and Newcastle itself. The choice of societies is good, but there could be more to choose from
Could use faster WiFi, good resources however, would love more printers that didn't break, and more available PCs at busier times. Staff are helpful and friendly, societies great but could use bigger budgets for activities.
The university has a lot of facilities for incoming students, they have very good study programs
I really don't want to write here
I am currently studying English Literature and Northumbria University. I have had the best experience studying there and there a many social events to go to.
Not a bad uni. I’m at coach lane campus so can’t say much for the main one in the city.
Lovely modern university with lots to offer whether it be its course offering, student help or sports and societies. It is an up and rising uni with lots to offer to its current and future students!
Uni is great, helpful and has good facilities available.
Good university with a lot to do socially for students
Great uni and close to city centre!
Facilities good and easy to find everything you need. Everything close by.
Northumbria university is a great place to study and start your career after graduate
Facilities good and all close by!
This University will provide you with plenty of careers services
The facilities at the university are good
The only decent part of the university is the Student's Union. This is a very disorganised university, unable to answer simple queries. A lot to improve upon Would NOT recommend this university at all. Not worth the trouble or £9K a year.
The only decent part of the university is the Student's Union. This is a very disorganised university, unable to answer simple queries. Placements are ill placed and horrendous, failed my placement due to the placement not being able to provide the pre-requisits for passing. Communication is awful, I was essentially told that I had passed an assignment since I have not received an email to state otherwise. To then be told later that day, actually I had failed. Would NOT recommend this university at all. Not worth the trouble or £9K a year.
great uni, a lot of courses on offer, amazing location and always stuff going on
Campus is class loads of things for students to do
The campus life was amazing and the university has modern classrooms and computer labs that made studies more interesting. It was a great experience overall.
Overall a very good university would recommend
Hello Guys, I am an international student from India Studying at northumbria, I came to Uk hoping to get a job after my studies but despite 100s of applications, i can strongly say that UK is defnitly not the place to come if you want a job after u study. The course iam doing is MSC renewable and sustainable energy with advanced practice, however i regret to say that the help to acquire the advanced practice/ Internship is very bad and its really really hard for international. I strongly recommend nobody to come from india to study in UK. The university facilities are really good but at the end of the day what you want is a job which is quite impossible to find for an international student.
Only live in Claude Gibb if you want mold in your showers, dryers that down work at all so you waste your money, no toilet paper ever, or hair in your eggs at breakfast. The only thing keeping me here are my friends. Also the staff in the language department told me they "weren't impressed" with me so don't go ask stuff for help unless you want to feel like crap about yourself. Very rude and very unhelpful. Also very unorganized, I've talked to many other international students who said they didn't receive important emails the first two weeks, just like me, therefore we missed important events. Also, they messed up my schedule more than once the first two weeks. Super rude. Super disorganized. But the professors are very nice.
I really like the modernity of this Uni.
I'm on a Postgraduate course at Northumbria. I don't say criticism lightly, but I felt this is necessary. It is the most disorganised university I've known of. Staff always giving conflicting information, at the expense of students. Not to mention other issues, poorly executed exams, constant issues with IT, frequent timetable mix ups, inadequate teaching staff. I went to uni in Leeds for undergrad and it was dramatically better and more organised. Most others in my class I have spoken to have bad things to say about the university, especially students who have come from other universities and who are used to competance and basic organisation. The campus is nice/fairly clean but that doesn't really mean much when the institution staff performance is innately poor.
It is a bad university please it’s my personal request do not join this university it only wants our money they are low ranked university
I’ve loved being at Northumbria uni and have really enjoyed meeting new people and exploring the city through having placement all over the city!
The university is good and helps gain a lot of exposure
The Student Union go above and beyond to ensure that all students feel represented and included. They have gone the extra mile to make it so that prospective society chairs can set things up without unnecessary barriers and hidden costs. The difficult task of meeting people has been that much easier through joining a society! The campus boasts two bars - Red's and Habita. They are insanely affordable. While the facilities are exceptional, potential improvements would include priority booking for the library, far too many people sit playing on their phones at computers that could be better utilised by other people. The book loan service is excellent - they make finding texts incredibly easy and give you ample time to make the most of your loan. / I think that the university admins do not realise how expensive student life is, and should not be as strict on attendance. Students have jobs, and employers aren't always as flexible as they should be. Overall, a brilliant campus!
Good university to study at and good location as everything’s near by
Worse university ever. I currently doing the MSc Web and Mobile Development Technologies (Part-Time) at the London campus. It has been a big disappointment so far. Teaching is so bad the worse standard. I would never recommend it to anyone. Please do not waste your money
It's a great uni, come visit and see for yourself.
Great university. Great facilities
An absolute disgrace and an insult to the HE industry. Studied my BA in the business school in 2012-14 and it was fantastic. But since then Northumbria has liteally nosedived in every regard to become what I can only describe as an utter joke. Yes the Uni execs have spent a fortune on shiny new buildings and park benches. But just about every other thing about this place is a mess. - Due to internal conflict and organisational unhappieness the vast majority of staff are resentful, disrespectful and often rude to students. - The brand new Ask4help service is an utter failure and a waste of time. They either take 2 months to get bac to you or tell you to contact a different department. - The vast majority of PCs are barely working. - A great many rooms and buildings are filthy dirty all the time. - A great many lecturers are condesending, arrogant overall an awful,failure of budget university with bad staff and worse teaching/ performance standard and expectations.
Great university with helpful and friendly staff.
An amazing department of health and life science especially biomedical science where the lectures thrive to give up to date examples. Plus the research project allows for the development of interpersonal and profesional skills.
The facilities at Northumbria are second to none, whether it be for sports or for engineering, it's phenominal. The English department seems to be a tad dated, but it's obvious the university continuously updates it's most overdue buildings, so I'm sure in the, not so distant future, even English will be modernised. Besides facilities, teaching staff are not just friendly but the vast majority I had were very interested in all aspects of their modules, some lecturers like to teach some parts and not other but, for the most part, at Northumbria they are fully focused and interested in all. Help tends to be fast, email responses rapid, but to be honest if there is a serious issue involving the course, and how the students are satisfied...getting it in order does take lots of effort and time, and mostly gets ignored. I did however really enjoy my time at Northumbria, I'll always remember certain lecturers and society members and even some sports team members for how inclusive they were.
Love Northumbria would definitely recommend it to anyone
It’s good. Nothing more to say
Basing student experience around the Newcastle nightlife is a good way to kill brain cells and have fun without growing or challenging yourself as an individual. Students also come here to learn. Also should embrace being new and different rather than pretending to be an old established uni for foreign students.
It’s a good university, with some really great professors. Everyone raves about the sport facilities too.
facilities follow the modern society, attempt to offer the best environment for student to study
some lecturers from art and design department are very racist and abusive to either intentionally isolating student from group study in the workshop or serious verbal bully due to racial issue. some university department staff they are also very corrupted and themselves bullying or discriminating their own staff. Regardless there are amazing lecturers with great knowledge. however, the structure of university itself is very commercial to a level that they don’t care whether you can study or not under any abusive condition but making sure to take all the tuition fee they demanded. Marist influence affect their sense of morality. and this is due to the geographical setting and the local cultural of identity, class that formed this overall university. Foreigner who are willing to join this university shall consider the logic and constitutional cultural aspects as well as the region setting (art - very subjective, lack of sense of logic and realistic understanding in contrast to business -
Internet was spotty at best, the clubs were alright.
Not much to say here, except that some of the coaches are completely useless.
good but student support are completely useless and have zero empathy
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.
Living far away it is hard to get to social events but the campus facilities are great
Only negatives would be that there is little way to socialise without drinking, or that sport and society sign ups on occur on one day rather than multiple opportunities throughout the year
Easy buildings to find, lots of help advice and different services
I've not really been involved in the city university as I'm usually on the other campus.
Love it here. I feel so at home. Always an event on.
Done a masters here and started a PhD ... Great learning environment and staff. There is much to be desired though when it comes to for instance the financial and IT services.
Great year so far roll on year two
Couldn't fault my university experience
Love uni, it's a well social place and you meet everyone! Never a dull moment
Really enjoying being a student at Northumbria haven't got involved in much so can't give a fair assessment
Overall a good university! Love the city of Newcastle. It's vibrant, fun, and there is always something to do. If you're looking for something a bit more traditional, perhaps look at other unis.
Great social atmosphere, loads of likeminded people and very supportive.
Best university in the north east for the experience
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
An amazing experience, a place that sets you up for life!
Everything you'll ever need within walking distance, high-quality facilities and fantastic societies
It's an amazing university with an incredible atmosphere whether you're on campus or in the accommodations.
Decent uni with a lot of facilities.
the facilities here at great from the gym to the numerous discounted Starbucks
Awesome experience, great campus and the people are really, really nice!
The University is very modern, clean and the Sports Central is great for all gym/sport buffs, although v. busy on an evening
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.
Absolutely amazing uni life! People from all over the country and world and a uni with one of the best nightlife's in the country! Lots of newly built accommodation too.
All the things from programme modules, teaching facilities (esp sport centre), reachable campus site & accommodations are excellent!
the lecturers and tutors are very helpful! you can get many friends if you join the societies or volunteer because the students are very friendly either the local and the international students :)
Northumbria university makes you enjoy Monday's. There's always a buzzing atmosphere! It's a great place to study, meet people and it's in the best city!
I love being a student at Northumbria Uni, Newcastle! Brill first year so far :)
Love Northumbria campus....great facilities to work in
Wi-fi went off all the time but the university was amazing! Loved my first year
Love it here. The staff are so friendly and helpful. The labs are modern and great to work in as well
It's a great uni. Think more events need to happen and not just drinking all the time
Internet is poor and slow in common areas. There are lots of job opportunities presented to students with regular e-mails getting sent out almost daily for new things.
I can't imagine being anywhere else. The students union puts on some brilliant events, its the only Union to be at on St Patrick's day!
SU is the best part of the uni.
Best experience of first year was definitely St Patrick's day at the SU, best event all year
Brilliant University, Amazing experience, Unforgettable memories.
Humble uni, it's really casual and gives a balanced uni experience.
law at northumbria
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 You get free print credits
The main library is always pretty busy The pool is open to the public so in the evenings it gets pretty busy
