One of the most important things to look at is how good universities are for your course though – Newcastle has a great biomedical programme, so was a great choice for my degree in genetics, but there might be other courses where other universities are a better choice. Most Universities tend to have a type of course that they specialise in.
If Newcastle does a good course that you’re interested in though, its s great place to be! It’s a really friendly city to live in, and has a great social scene and night life 🙂 There’s always something interesting to do … and it helps that its not too expensive here, so you can still afford to do lots of fun stuff as a student! I really loved my time at Newcastle, and would really recommend it here!
