More about Newcastle University
Hey, If i get accepted into Newcastle I'm definitely going to firm it but I don't know anyone going and I feel a lot of people in Newcastle focus a lot on the nightlife, Im going to be doing a very intense course and Id like academic friends to help me prioritise my studies. But don't get me wrong I would still enjoy going out, just not as often as others. Also I'm sorta worried that cos Newcastle is really in the North there will be a huge lack of diversity and I need to be friends w people that are clean (who use lotas) and share similar culture to me so I don't feel homesick, are there any desi people thinking of living at Newcastle?
