I looked around Newcastle at the start of September and loved it. The campus is great and so is the accommodation.
One thing I didn't get a conclusive answer on was the night life. I know that the uni is known for heavy drinking but is that every student?
Don't get me wrong, I like a drink myself but not every night of the week which is the stereotype I've heard. I would also enjoy a night in every so often with my flatmates.
My question is, if I put Newcastle as my firm choice, as I got an offer a few days ago for combined honours, will I be forced to go out every night if I don't want to be a loner by the end of first years? Or are there people who, like me, enjoy a night in as well.
Would you pay less for a humanities degree?
