I got my offer through Partners! Anyone looked at accomodation yet?
If you want to have a look, a good place to start would be searching up student crowd Newcastle uni accommodation. It ranks the accommodation from student reviews, and while that to an extent is important I mainly used it to see all the options available and tried to tailor my search to my preferences.

Hi everyone! Just wondering if people on here have had email conformation from the med school about their offers? I received an email from newcastle uni but it doesnt seem specific to medicine. Also has anyone gotten an invite for an offer holder event?

I had a generic email basically saying congratulations we’ve made you an offer to study medicine. It then went on to say that they are planning offer holder events and will email to invite to those soon.

I got an email the day after I received the track update, it said


“We are delighted to tell you that we have made you an offer for A101, Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MB BS)(Accelerated Programme).

We are planning Virtual Offer Holder Events and will email you again soon to invite you. This email will include further details about the event, dates available, and what to expect.”

Nothing further regarding the offer holder event

Ahh yes!! Hence my desire to go to some offer holder events so I can finally make up my mind. Did you get offers from both as well? If so which one are you leaning towards?

My daughter is a fourth year medical student at Newcastle and loves it. Newcastle is a vibrant city, the Geordies are a friendly bunch and the cost of living, particularly accommodation, is so much cheaper in Newcastle than Bristol. Having said that, Bristol is also a beautiful city and it will be warmer than Newcastle! It must be tough trying to decide where to go when you haven't had the opportunity to visit on Open Days. Good luck and well done on getting more than one offer!

On hold at Bristol, waiting for NCL & Liverpool. NCL is my top choice.

Hey guys! Nice to meet other people with offers! I think I like Newcastle the most but just waiting to see if I get any others. I was really up for finding other grad medics to live with or buddy up in halls with as I'm not sure I'm ready to live the fresher life again. I didn't know if the uni had a system to put grad medics with each other or if they just got put in normal undergrad accomodation.
I was wondering that too, I'm not sure I could face living with a load of 18 year olds fresh out of school.

Do we know whether grad medics get put with postgrads or undergrads in uni accommodation? I can't seem to find anything about it on the website

Yeah im feeling exactly the same. I've tried looking into this but can't find anything. I was thinking it would be a lot cheaper to try and link up with some other grad medics and get a house together thats not campus accomodation.

I kinda feel the same! I’m not a grad though, I took 2 years out and have spent my gap year working various jobs and I’m a bit worried about fitting in with the people who have come straight from college.

Had a look at the options and thinking of park terrace for first year? It's postgrad and about five minutes from the medical school

I'm not sure we are allowed into postgraduate accomodation? I think I remember reading we are only allowed in undergrad, as its technically an undergrad course. I'm not sure though I might be getting confused between unis.

So had a look and it states that anyone 25 and over can live in postgraduate regardless of undergrad or postgrad. With the first year being longer than a normal University year the only option is postgrad as undergrad contracts are only 40 weeks?

Are all of the undergraduate contracts 40 weeks? At my uni some are longer. And, yeah thats why I'm thinking of trying to get an off campus house as will be a lot cheaper and the weeks of the contact might fit better.
