    I got conditionally accepted to Newcastle University for computer science, but being an international student, I was wondering if someone could answer/help me with a few things.

    - are there many international students at Newcastle University or are they more in minority?
    - also, does anyone know the rough boy:girl ratio of the students taking computer science at the moment (just like a rough estimate)?
    - and finally, does anyone know roughly the total amount of students taking computer science at the moment, like the total number from all years?

    Thanks so much anyone that can help!


    Hello and congratulations on your offer. I'm currently studying Computer Science at Newcastle so I'll try to answer your questions.

    I don't know how the university compares with others in terms of international students but I'd say there are a lot on this course. Probably more than I realise. I hear a lot of different accents, and often different languages, in the school every day. I don't hear the local accents much unless I go off campus.
    For Computer Science I think it's approximately 15% female. There are two girls in my tutor group of ten.
    And for your last question, we were told they doubled the intake with the move to the new building. So from 2017 I think each new cohort should be around 300.

    Hope that helps and good luck!
