Ray’s student profile, Dental Surgery, Bachelor of Dental Sciences

“One thing that has stood out to me from day one was the staff’s commitment to excellent teaching. It really does make a difference when the people teaching you are not only passionate about their subject, but passionate about ensuring you get the most out of the sessions.”

Ruby’s student profile, English Language BA Honours

“I totally recommend coming to Newcastle. Not only will you be studying in a beautiful and lively city, you would also be learning about topics which interest you and gaining in-depth knowledge which will allow you to obtain a degree at the end of it all. Staff are all extremely friendly and eager to offer help when it is needed and when exams and assignment deadlines do come around, you will be well-prepared and equipped with everything you need to get a good result. On top of this, you will be able to meet other like-minded students who share a similar interest to you and are likely to stay friends for a very long time.”

James’ student profile, Civil and Structural Engineering MEng Honours

"Newcastle is a well-regarded university, with a nice compact campus close to the city centre. When visiting on the open days the staff were very friendly and the calibre of staff was very high. It also felt like the staff wanted to learn with you and were very interactive. The course is very varied and gives everyone a good basis in all areas of civil engineering. This is very important as it is gives you a good basis to choose the modules which you enjoy later on in the course.”

Adi’s student profile Contemporary and Popular Music BA Honours 

"As a music student, it was important for me to study somewhere with a great music scene and a buzzing nightlife. Newcastle did not let me down! There is a never a dull moment here, whether you're visiting the art galleries and museums, checking out the football, or taking a trip to the Quayside. It seems there is always something interesting wherever you go. As well as being a brilliant city in itself, it is right to say Newcastle is one of the friendliest cities I've ever visited. As soon as I arrived the people seemed so warm and welcoming, and made me feel right at home."

Dawn’s student profileMedicine MB BS Honours

“There is a huge range of clubs and societies here. I have joined the Ultimate Frisbee club that has been loads of fun, travelling to other cities for tournaments and meeting new friends. I also joined the Singapore Society and met great friends that make Newcastle feel more like home. People here are really friendly. I’ve been told that people in the North East are some of the friendliest people you’d meet in the UK. Coming to study in Newcastle has given me a great first experience of living in the UK.”
