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.

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.

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.

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.

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 -

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.

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

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

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