depends on the uni you like the look off, the are in 2 very different parts off england
my old housemate was from sunderland, and like it down here as it was somewhere different new area to live and all that, he had to make the travel to the north east a few times missed the sessions
it all depends on the course you like the look and the uni, i wouldn't worry about missing nufc plus only at uni for 10 weeks at a time, there are ways to watch games

Academically Essex is probably better for Politics, but obviously your decision should be based on various factors. If you think you would be happier at one, or if the course at one of them appeals to you more, then both are examples of legitimate reasons to choose your university.

I would recommend essex as it does have a very good department for politics, although you really need to take a close look at the course to see if it contains subjects that sound interesting to you. Compare the course content of newcastle and essex, then weigh up the other factors.

I had offers for both for economics and politics and I ended up choosing Essex. I love Newcastle as a city and Colchester doesn't really measure up in that respect but the politics department at Essex seemed better than the one at Newcastle so I decided I should go by what was best for me academically. Having said that though each university offers modules which the other doesn't so you should take a look at what modules they each offer and see what interests you the most. As universities go they are very different, Essex is a small campus university which is outside of the town centre whilst Newcastle is much bigger and a city university so you'd be right in the heart of the city, you just need to decide what's right for you. They both offer visit days for the courses so you should really try and go to them if you're undecided.
