Why did you choose Northumbria University, Newcastle?

The course was unique, the city has amazing nightlife and it isn't too far from home.

I love Newcastle, the nightlife is unreal, there are many restaurants and activities like bowling, cinema, trips to seaside resorts etc.

What has surprised you most about living in Newcastle and this region? What has impressed you most?

How easy it is to learn the city and how friendly the people are.

Did you find Northumbria University welcoming? Was it easy to fit in?

Very welcoming, on my first day there was a team of volunteers helping people move in, on the first day of my course there were goodie bags handed out and introductions to staff and several activities to make new friends.

What have you enjoyed most about coming to Northumbria University?

Meeting new people, living away from home in an amazing city and becoming more independent.

People in the years above me on my course, they explain what work I have ahead of me and gave me advice on how to deal with it.

The Law and Business building, it's a great atmosphere to work in.

I would definitely recommend it, Newcastle is a great city and is small enough to still feel friendly and Northumbria has a great reputation.

Would you recommend Northumbria University to a friend?
