Newcastle University

Student review
By nicolee_

I absolutely love Newcastle, the city is so lively and I have made some amazing friends. The campus is so pretty and right in the middle of the city. The city is close to the sea if you ever want to go to the beach. All the faculty members on my course are willing to help you, and all in all it's been absolutely amazing. Also, the nightlife is soooo good and everything is so cheap!

Student Life in Newcastle

Fun, friendly and effortlessly cool, Newcastle has gained an enviable reputation as one of the UK's favourite student cities. One in six people in Newcastle is a student, helping create the city's vibrant social scene and renowned nightlife. Theatre, late night cafes and restaurants, mainstream and independent cinema and live music all feature heavily in the bustling after dark scene. Nightclubs are dotted around the city, providing a place to party for all musical tastes. Favourites include Shindig, Digital and World Headquarters. When the weather is not conducive to soaking up the sun, soak up some culture instead. Newcastle's cultural renaissance means there are a wealth of ways to indulge your intellectual side, including an art gallery and award-winning museum on campus. Sport is also integral to Newcastle's identity, and there are lots of opportunities to make the most of this, whether you're watching or taking part.
