Newcastle as a city / campus is amazing - the city has the ability to make everyone feel at home. There's loads to do, great transport links and it's a beautiful place. The campus is all relatively close together, with a choice of at least 4 libraries, nice lecture venues and a wide range of eating facilities, it's got everything you need. Personally, I haven't had much interaction with the student union but there are a wide range of clubs and societies to get involved with. I have only visited the careers service once and found it useful to say it was my first time visiting, however it took me multiple visits to the career department to actually get an appointment as it is a drop in facility that doesn't have very long opening hours - it always seems to be busy with a long wait. One of my friends waited 3 weeks for an appointment. I'm studying Law LLB currently at stage 3. My overall experience towards my course has been quite negative. This is mostly due to the staff - a lot of lecturers have poor ways of teaching, refuse to use recap, don't give you any help when you ask for it and instead make you feel a bit stupid. The structures of most of the modules are bad, with a lot of deadline clashes, unstructured material that isn't explained properly, and little to no coursework guidance. During last years exam season we even received an email from one lecturer asking students not to 'bother' another lecturer as they were on study leave and were unable to help us - conveniently the whole exam period, even though they were the main lecturer for that module. Throughout my nearly 3 years on the course I am still yet to receive a simple 'well done' from any member of staff, immense efforts tend to go unnoticed and there is instead a basic expectation that all students keep up with and complete an inhuman amount of work. I can honestly say I have tried my best on the course and my efforts are not reflected through my marks - this course is impossible.
