I can't decide between the University of York or Newcastle University. I currently hold offers at both unis for psychology. I prefer the course at Newcastle (although don't hate the course at York), but prefer York as a city and like the idea of the college system. I am more of a laid back person and worry that Newcastle might be too rowdy and there may be too many drugs going around. But I still like having a lot to do so think I might be bored at York. I am not too bothered about accomodation but would enjoy a lot of green space. Has anyone got any tips please?

I would recommend York. As you say the college system is a big plus for a lot of people, there's loads of green space (renowned for its lakes and open space), it's an incredibly safe and quiet city plus accommodation is generally great (albeit expensive!).

A friend of mine is doing psychology and seems to love it - I believe York is rated very highly for that subject and its one of their better specialisms.

I think I will go for York - overall it seems to have more going for it! Thanks

Hello! I'm Mollie, one of the outreach ambassadors at Newcastle, and I graduated last summer from there doing Psychology and French, so I thought I might be able to help a little with the psychology bit if you had any questions about it? In terms of Newcastle being too rowdy, honestly I was worried about exactly the same but it's really not like that everywhere, especially in the student villages like jesmond and sandyford (where a lot of students move to in 2nd year and above) it's such a cute, lovely little student village with student bars, café and stuff! There obviously is the rowdy side, but it's finding the places you prefer. I loved stack - so if you do get chance to visit, would definitely recommend there for some food and drinks! Unibuddy is also a really good place to ask current students at york and Newcastle how they find it there if you were still undecided! Do ask if you have any questions about psychology or newcastle though, would be so happy to help!

Mollie
