    Hi,

    The new Science Central complex will house the School of Computing Science and be the base for several research groups. The Urban Sciences Building will be mainly for postgrad research. The Urban Planning BA is part of the School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape and I'm not aware of any plans to relocate from the main campus

    Hope that helps!

    I am also looking at applying for urban planning MPlan. I have just a few questions if you're able to answer them

    1. How much contact time is there in the first year?
    2. How many students are there on the course?
    3. If I was to apply for the Architecture and Urban Planning BAHons K190, would I need an architecture portfolio?

    Thank you!

    Hi,

    Any appliances you bring in need to conform to safety regulations, which means you may have to pay to have it PAT tested. There's more info on page 14 of the Accommodation Terms and Conditions Brochure and you can read the PAT Testing Policy here

    All the best

    Hi,

    Here are the answers to your questions. If there is anything else you would like to know please ask away

    1. For MPlan (K400), 12 to 16 hours per week. Contact time in stage 2 when optional modules are selected may differ.

    2. For MPlan (K400), 17 students - but joint with BA Urban Planning (K421 - same degree for first three years) there is a total of 53 students in Stage 1. Students can interchange between BA Urban Planning (K421) and MPlan (K400) for the first three years and leave with the BA at the end of the third year or continue onto the Placement year and final year if they choose MPlan.
    3. Currently no portfolios are required for Architecture and Urban Planning (K190) - but this may change in the future.

    Hi,

    Yes, offers for the Accounting and Finance BA Hons course have started going out It'll take a couple of weeks for your application to be processed, so there's no need to worry if you haven't received a decision yet. If further information is needed from you then the Admissions Officer will contact you directly.

    Hope that helps!

    No, in order to give equal consideration to all our applicants, we do not send out any invitations to interview until after UCAS closes on 15th January. Interviews are normally held in mid-February, and offers are usually made in March/April.

    I hope that helps

    Hi,

    Congrats on the offer!

    There isn't a set number of places, but we usually take on about 50 students between the MPlan and BA Hons Planning courses. This year there were 53 students in Stage 1. (17 of them applied for the MPlan directly).

    Yes, the Planning courses have gone into Clearing in the past. When that's happened all remaining places have been filled within the first day Clearing.

    Hope that helps!

    For your Graduate Entry Medicine do you consider applicants who have taken GCSE's again? E.g. GCSE's in 2016 then GCSE's in 2017 again as re-sits.

    Hi,

    The Medicine and Surgery (Accelerated Programme) MB BS Honours entry requirements for 2017 state:

    A Level and GCSE results for graduate applicants will have no direct bearing on the decision to interview or offer a place. This also applies for Masters qualifications.

    Hope that helps

    I really like newcastle city and the university and i got an offer for economics(with placements). I've seen many placements available for business and marketing students on your carieer service instagram, however have seen none for economics student. I am very worried about the placement availability/job prospect for economics degree as newcastle business school is more well known for business & marketing but less popular for economics? Would i be able to do a placements in marketing or would there be limited chance? Thank you!
