What are you thinking about studying? All I know really is that it has a VERY good reputation for music, so if that's what you're studying, it's great. It's probably great for other subjects too, but I haven't really looked into that.

EDIT: I guess in a university campus it'd probably be different, but my mum used to live in newcastle and said it was very racist. She had to put on a geordie accent just so she wouldn't have the **** beaten out of her.

I've got a few mates there who've only said good things about it. What it comes down to is whether YOU like it though, would there be any chance of you coming over to the UK for an open day to check it out? That's probably the best thing to do.

Enjoy occasionally controversial ramblings related to guitars? I have a blog which meets these criteria.

Urgh we dont want people of your kind here, i say, bugger off you, yea i said it, bugger off *shakes fist and look's down upon thee*

/sarcasm.

Newcastle isnt racist at all, it's pretty laid back if anything. I havent been to newcastle uni, but im ive been to northumbria, and it was ok to be honest, perhap's you can look into both of them?

I'm from newcastle and like naywhere there r peopl who r accepting of none geordies and those who r just stupid....but for the most part they dpont seem to mind ppl who arnt geordie...unless you happen to be from sunderland :P actually thats jsut a handful of stupid football fans who are like that but neway, newcastle uni is 1 of the best in the country for medical courses, and they can be quite snobby about who tehy admit for it.....be warned though newcastle as a place to live is very lively, its defiantly a good place if you like crappy dance clubs and lots of pubs!

Run for the hills. Fassa goes there so you might wanna avoid it xD

Only joking Fassa


In all seriousness, it is a good university depending on what you want to study. I dont go there. I wouldnt go there. Only because its up north and cold.

well what im thinking about studying is computer science.

and the arguements about it being cold are pointless :P i'm from norway.


i guess what im wondering about is campus life, mainly for international students, and if anyone knows anything about the course (computer science)

(I think) one of my friends has applied for computer science there. He hasn't visited it though, so I dunno what it's like.

I'm at Northumbria University, same course though.

I put in a UCAS Application for both though and got accepted for both.
It's a multi-cultural area, plenty of international students, my friends lives with a Swedish woman, a Norweigen (sp?) woman & a German lad in one flat, they all speak English well though, so it may help if you can speak it a bit better than just the basic volcabulary.
