In the first year I lived in a private accomodation which was a new experience Nd helped me meet two new flatmates that I got along very well with. The accomodation staff was very friendly and the room that I stay in is spacious and is very student friendly.
The facilities at the university are varied a lot and are in abundance. The SU is a very helpful place to go when I need help. The library facilities don't just allow me to study peacefully but also is very useful when I need to do group projects
The course is the right one for me as I want to go down the robotic industry path. The lectures help me learn because the lecturers make the lectures very engaging and interesting to attend .
The city life is asking with the city being busy and vibrant with a lot of people during the day and being bright and filled with colours during the night with clubs being open and people being out and about.
The course can be challenging at first, but as the term goes on and you tend to revise more and more, the easier it gets. The course is very demanding but rthe rewards are very high if the hardwork and effort is put in.

Their latest accommodation, Park View Student Village, is amazing! Lots of people doing different subjects and from different countries and parts of the UK, all living in one area made for an interesting experience. Friends are a mere 2 min walk away and it is also very close to the Medical school.
The libraries are amazing, cosy and very student-friendly. The classrooms are spacious although some lack power outlets which is a pity. The SU bar is simply amazing and with food outlets like subway, domino’s and the latest SHIJO at the SU, student life at Newcastle is simply convenient!
The course structure is amazing and the spiral curriculum enriches one’s knowledge through a step by step process. There’s very early clinical experience and patient contact. Unlike other universities, Newcastle although emphasises on communication skills and ethics early on.
The night life is the highlight of Newcastle: from a chilled pub night at spoons or a busy (and sweaty) night out at soho, NCL offers it all! Even during the day there’s so much the city offers. A walk to the quayside is more than just therapeutic, it also gives the opportunity for a plethora of instagram worthy pictures to be taken.
If you miss a lecture they’re all available online on recap. Seminars are compulsory so you should try your best to attend them since professionalism is monitored from early on and accumulation of PIN points raises concerns. Importance of attire is taught early on too during clinical skills sessions. There’s a dissecting room for learning anatomy on cadavers and all these rooms can be booked for personal use in addition to the timetabled sessions.
