Is Newcastle Med School good?Watch
More about Newcastle University
You get more clinical experience in the A100 course, you've got mixes of seminars and lectures (Newcastle is more on lecture based teaching for A100, but also has case-led learning --> much more varied on teaching) where teaching is mainly systems-based and integrated. You'll get a "case launch" lecture introducing clinical context for the following basic science lectures (e.g. covering a case of some cardiovascular disease, then learning about the structure and functions of the heart)
What does make a difference and is worth considering is the teaching style (e.g. PBL vs lecture based vs other formats), the location (you'll be living there for 5-6 years, which is a signifcant amount of time...this also includes the placements and how far out they may be from your base at the uni; for example, Southampton medics have placements in Winchester as well), and any amenities/facilities/societies etc offered by the university that you may wish to partake in (if you are an avid swimmer you may prefer a uni that has a large swimming pool or pools, for example). The above poster has highlighted some of the aspects of teaching style which may be relevant to your considerations.
Personally, I love the city and I heard it’s quite decent. Plus, my sister went there for Law school and really rates it.
