Hi - sorry you haven't had a response to this yet. I'm just going to bump the thread in the hope that someone sees this and can help

Why do I do this?

The Universities forums get a lot of questions that are unanswered. This is often because the OP's thread got missed - bumping threads gives them another lease of life and frequently results in someone seeing it and being able to respond

If you would like to help with unanswered questions check out the first part of the list here and don't forget the second part of the list here.

Or if you have questions, get in touch with Puddles the Monkey.

Hey moonqueen,

Congratulations on your offer and it's great you've decided to come to Newcastle!
If you've got any questions about the uni or the city let me know.

What about you?
York - MSc Human Anatomy and Evolution, Newcastle MRes Neuroscience York would've been so expensive in comparison though, half the reason why I went for Newcastle instead!

Me! I’m finishing up my undergrad in the US this summer and I got an offer for International Multimedia and Journalism MA. The MA Media & PR program looks amazing as well!

I am still debating between a few Unis, but Newcastle is a strong contender.

Same! I also received a scholarship for NCL... that made my choice a lot easier
I look forward to meeting all the postgraduates!

Uh, it's a tough decision! I was thinking about International Multimedia as well but PR made a lot more sense with my education background. What other Universities are you thinking about?

I agree! Definitely spent just as much time deciding between almost identical programs as I did writing all my personal statements 😭

I just finished my applications less than two weeks ago, so I’m still waiting to hear back from Brunel, Roehampton, and Goldsmiths! I have already received an unconditional offer to Solent though so it’s nice to know I’ll at least have some options. How do you think Newcastle compares to the other universities?

I haven't looked into that one, but I'll definitely check it out! So far, I'm leaning towards their all postgrad accommodation Newgate Court. The only thing is I'm not sure how social the building is. As an international student, I want to live somewhere people are down to meet new people and go out to explore the city together.

I wish you well this year!

I checked online reviews for the accommodation offering en-suite rooms and shortlisted Park Terrace. I decided to go for the university-managed accommodation. Of course, social experience is a very important factor but I guess we will come to know more only when we move in. I am also hoping to find people who are interested in exploring Newcastle and the UK at large. In any case, we can always meet there

Wishing you a great year ahead!

Sorry about the late reply! Have you received your offer yet? I haven't looked into the ones you were applying to but I think Newcastle is ranked higher than the other Unis if that matters and also tuitionwise a lot more affordable (at least for UK/EU students). Also, it is a relatively safe city. I did not want to live in a big city like London, so that played a big role in my decision. Personally, I would have preferred York, but it would have been a different programme (Marketing) and the one at NCL sounded a lot more appealing I think, it's more important to choose the right course for you since employers will not care too much whether it's Brunel or Roehampton, unless they have a personal connection to it.

Hi everyone! I got an offer from NCL for the MSc Foundations in Clinical Psych and accepted it!! (It was between Kings College London and Newcastle- super happy I picked Newcastle). Just flew into Newcastle a couple weeks ago to look for a place (I'm from Canada), and am finally settling a bit better. Would love to connect with other postgrads and international students! So excited
