So many beautifully constructed facilities that are mostly within the heart of the city, making it very accessible. Furthermore, NCL itself is a beauty. The marketing and management course is great too, with proper lectures by our professors. Only thing I wish could improve is that we dont have 2-3 2hrs lectures back to back, because it's tough to focus with no breaks.

Newcastle University is great! The induction week really helped me settle into the university life, with all of the support staff offering a lot of help - especially the sociology mentors who helped me along in my first semester. Amazing facilities such as the libraries which is a great place to study, gyms and other study spaces. Accommodation clean and tidy.

Newcastle as a city allows you to have the best student lifestyle due to the low living costs and the cheap booze!! Geordies are genuinely the friendliest people you'll meet anywhere!!

Amazing campus with beautiful buildings. Student union is a nice place to hangout between classes. Business school is a bit far, would be nice if it was more in the centre of the campus. Very happy with my course - Marketing BSc

I do History and Politics and the lecturers are all fantastic and are clearly experts in their respective fields, which really makes a difference in lectures and feedback. In terms of learning environments the facilities are top class. Three excellent libraries, computers to use, laptops, research tools etc. The careers service is also one of the best in the country

Good university experience, helpful in the student union. Very inclusive in the societies it offers, something for everyone. Good facilities within the union offering a variety of places to study as well as to relax.

The facilities are really good. Lots of sports and clubs, however the societies could be a bit better managed and do more activities. Student union is good but could also do more events. Campus is really pretty and nice to be around. Always a place to work or sit and relax.

Very welcoming campus which is always thriving. Made me feel at home within the first week. University also provides lots of support with students to ensure everyone is doing well and enjoying the university as well as seeing if they need any help

The campus is nice and compact so everything is within max 10 mins walking distance. I studied Modern Languages and there are excellent language facilities in the Language Resource Centre, which also serves as a great study space for language students as there are usually more free seats available than in the library.

An excellent university striking the right balance between support and academic independence (particularly exceptional medical, history and architecture schools). One of the best cities in the UK to study at alongside Edinburgh, Bristol, Manchester and Leeds. Do not fear coming here if you're from the South, it's only 2 hours 40 on the train from London King's Cross.

My experience at Newcastle university has been wonderful. I went to a different university at first and hated it - but the teaching levels and facilities here go above and beyond. All of my lecturers are skilled and talented in their field, as well as being impeccable at teaching. It's so close to the city centre and offers such a wide variety of modules to cater to everybody's individual desires. In third year we have many guests coming to speak to us about jobs and life outside of university after graduation, which is very helpful.

There are a lot of libraries at different places within the city making it convenient for most students. The student union is a great place to eat some food, have a coffee, study, buy clothes etc!

Most of the campus looks like a red brick University, with the Student's Union at the heart of it all. The Business and Medical Schools are a little further away for the city centre, but still easily within walking distance. Newcastle University has state-of-the-art facilities and great amenities. I study Medicine and Surgery; the course is excellent with a huge amount of interactive and hands-on teaching. We have 2 placement years (stages 3 and 5) to practise our clinical skills in hospital and GP settings. We get a good amount of patient contact and well as lecture-based learning. There are multiple libraries on campus, however the Medical School has its own library on the top floor with plenty of computers and work stations. The career service is always there if you need a little extra support or start to question your path. Newcastle University also has a variety of paid student jobs, e.g. ambassadors, representatives and mentors. This is fun and a great way to find a flexible student job. I have also been using the free University Wide Language Programme to study Japanese in my spare time, the language facilities are amazing and the tutorials are really interesting. I would recommend Newcastle University to anybody looking to study in a vibrant and energetic city!

The campus is so pretty and right next to the city centre so perfectly located. The Careers Service is always there to help if you need them and there are plenty of societies to join.

A nice campus within the city, good services available and always offering new opportunities. A strong careers service to help you to prepare to leave uni

I am a second year student at Newcastle University's school of modern languages. The department is brilliant, always tending to concerns and generally being kind and helpful. Newcastle's campus is beautiful, steeped in history and good architecture (apart from the horrendous Antony Gormley statue outside the arches). Geordies are some of the sweetest people you will ever meet! I wholeheartedly recommended Newcastle for a well rounded university experience.

I'd rate Newcastle university really highly and recommended it to anyone. My course is highly sociable and it's structure makes it impossible not to make any events. There was lots of course socials and opportunities to meet peers in all year groups not only first year students. It has a really good peer mentoring scheme

Newcastle University is a world class university which is climbing up the QS rankings. It has wonderful facilities in all its departments, such as a language resource centre (which is available to all students and staff to use), a dental hospital, institute of aging. As a student, there are many societies to become involved in, and the student union and campus is very well equipped to accommodate all the activities that take place.
