    Hoe easy have Northumbria graduates found it to get jobs with their degrees? Do you wish you'd gone to Newcastle uni sometimes instead?

    I'm just wondering as Northunbria is my insurance and I think it looks a great uni. Just the fact that its an old poly worries me sometimes.

    What course are you doing?
    I had the opportunity to apply to Newcastle through the Partners scheme but decided against it because Northumbria suited me better. Don't let the reputation of whatever Uni you want to go to sway your choice, it's much better that you enjoy your time and learning.

    English. I loved Leeds and Newcastle but there was no point putting one of those down as my insurance as they both wanted AAB. Found it hard finding suitable insurance choices for English as 'respectable' unis want AAA or AAB. Anyway in the end I went for Newcastle as my firm AAB and Northumbria as my insurance which wants either ABC or BBB.
