Solid university, the sports facilities are amazing. The library is modern and is a perfect environment to excel in your studies.
A cracking good university but often underlooked by potential undergraduates. Northumbria has a massive student base from all walks of life and benefits from being in the best student city in the country; Newcastle is very affordable and always has lots going on with a thriving music scene, lots of trendy arty stuff, a passionate football club and of course the best nightlife. Northumbria really pulls out the stops for its students and doesn't let them be forgotten. The students Union is led by a very strong student initiative based design where student issues are frequently fought for, and won by the union; the union also has a fully paid team to take on student issues so you're not simply reliant on student representatives. Northumbria also have their own letting agents to help students find somewhere to live at very reasonable rates (40-70 £pw). The IT support sustems in place are one of the best, your work is constantly backed up automatically so you'll never lose anything important. If you do have a problem though, they're got a 24/7 help desk.
