The value of food on campus is quite good there are a good few places to eat at reasonable prices. There is a subway too which is always good. In town there are loads of places to east ranging from McD's to Nandos to TGI fridays. Its really great, there are loads for pubs which have great food and great deals. In terms of buying food this is more of a challenge. The closest place to buy food is Mark's and Spencers and often out of convenience I buy food there but it is much better for my bank balance when I go to Tesco. Also near Tesco is Grangier Market which has lots of cheap meat and fruit and veg. I haven't looked for part-time work but I imagine there is a lot to choose from. I haven't experienced any additional course costs to be honest. Books are sometimes necessary but the libraries are amazing so I've never bought one. There is the metro and buses if you have to travel across town but I have had to use these service only a handful of times, its a rather compact city and you get to enjoy walking. If you do have to use transport it isn't cheap but it is really good.×

Making friends. It is has been really easy to make friends at University and I have had the opportunity to meet people that I would never normally meet. The lecturers have also been great and really supportive. At Newcastle we have personal tutors, who are there to help us with any problems (personal or academic), I have found my tutor to be someone I can really rely on. I also find that I have a very busy social life, more so than before coming to Uni. Despite the work and lectures, I still have enough time to see friends and have fun!×

The sport scene isn't as active as other universities, but there are social and competitive teams each week - and they're all really friendly. Unfortunately Newcastle doesn't have a quidditch team (Edinburgh does), but we're trying to create one. Every year there's the Stan Calvert tournament between Newcastle and Northumbria universities (think Oxford-Cambridge boat race but over more sports), which involves the whole university, but otherwise you'll rarely hear about sport unless you read the back pages of the Courier (the student newspaper). The karate club is particularly welcoming, and has some trial sessions for free at the start of each year.×

Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
We’ve pinpointed the key sites where teaching takes place. Check in the smallprint of the course you’re interested in to see where exactly you’d be based, especially if there are multiple locations spread across a wide area.
