    sorry to intrude on the applicant's thread, i'm a fresher in my first month at the uni so i thought i could be of some help!

    the buildings are all fairly close to each other, well the one's i know of are i'm doing english literature and it's all fairly central.
    i understand that there's some buildings that are a bit more spread out but the city is so easy to get around it's not an issue

    as for a central point, the new su building's just been opened, a lot of people hang about there/outside there. it's opposite northern stage it's a really nice building, with lounges and study group clusters, every time i go in there i find another little place i didn't know about haha!

    it is a beautiful campus in that central area. the building i'm in is in the quadrangle, which is lovely.
    http://www.ncl.ac.uk/tour/campus/quadrangle/

    ^that's an example of how nice it is. there's more tour stuff on the website

    even though the main campus is in the middle of town it does sometimes feel separated from the city, which is nice. but you can literally walk 2 mins into town as well. it's lovely

    hope i've been of some assistance! haha xx
    Thank you for your advice Much appreciated (I shall rep you when I get some more rep )

    How long did it take them to send your acknowledgement email? I sent my application about 8 days ago and I've heard nothing from any of my choices, and I've seen on her people getting acknowledgements from Newcastle in 2 days so I'm getting a little paranoid...!

    I've applied for Biology Course looks awesome. Wasn't so keen on the accommodation. I liked the Victoria Hall one over the motor way, but I dont think I could ever live there because there was no green or trees anywhere! Just cars and concrete
    You can tell Im a Biology student can't you? :P
    Anyway Im predicted A*A*A*A (A in Gen studs so not important). So Yay
    People seem surprised Im going for Uni's asking ABB and stuff, but the course is way better than some that ask for AAA! So whatever :P
    I've just started at Newcastle this September doing Zoology, which has the same first year as the Biology course, and I can't recommend it highly enough!
    Also come and live at Castle Leazes if you want greenery

    Ok, so it took them a while to get back to you, phew! How quickly did you get your UCAS track stuff through? I've not had that yet either, seriously beginning to think my application is lost in cyber space somewhere haha! Good luck with your application =)

    Is Castle Leazes by the park? Is it self catered?

    What's the teaching like and stuff? Is it really good. I do really like the course!

    Anyone else applying for history at Newcastle? I loved it on the open day; wish they'd send my UCAS off soon, especially since everyone seems to be getting offers now!
