OVERALL UNIVERSITY RATING02 May 16
I really enjoying my time at newman. their is a lot you can get involved in such as sports and socieites and even working at open days or working in the bar (which you get paid for!). Its a great university college to attain a good teaching qualification or a wide range of degrees students can choose from. Students thinking of coming to Newman should visit the campus and get a feel for the overall feel of campus community.
Newman has a high rate students finding employment after graduation. Newman are introducing more post-graduate degrees such as the master or attaining a PHd. I don't have plans yet to do a post-graduate degree but newman looks very promising!
Course and Lecturers
All lectures give me ideas for the area of study and are always actively interesting and fun. Lecturers are always available to talk to you if you are in need of help. Its up to you to go to them!
the students union arrange theme nights in the bar as well as nights out on the town. they look after the freshers in the first 2 weeks when going to town to make sure they are aware of safety and getting back to newman safetly if they students are staying in halls. THey organise a winter and summer ball which has a theme which is a great way to have fun. They also hold events in and outside of uni raising money for charity etc with the support of the students. The students union is the voice of the students.
I do not live in halls, but I have been in halls posting items for freshers and I can say, halls are in a state of refershment and some of the rooms and bathrooms that have been referbished have a high qulaity finish. Patience is needed because not all rooms and bathrooms are complete because it cannot be done while students are living in halls.It can only be done in the summer! Logic
The library is in need of improvement, but this is currently underway with the building of new facilities for the libary. However, Library staff are always on call if you are in need of help and can even get the book in from a different library. All we have to do is ask. Computer are all round campus which are of a high qualtiy. However more computers are needed.
Your a couple of miles from the city center, but their are bus services which are regular that go into town. In town their are noght clubs, bowling allies and cinemas which make for a great night out wiht friends.
Clubs and Societies
Thier are loads of sports clubs and socities ranging from football to cricket or Christian union, music and drama cociety etc that all students can get involved in. Its a great way to make new friends and everyone is welcome. It doesn't matter if you've never done the activity before. Also if the students union do not have a society or club then they are willing to help you set it up and get interest. I am a member of the christian union which welcomes everyone no matter their faith. I'm a catholic and it doesn't matter. Its a great way to make new friends and og out and have fun.
Having said what you have said would you recommend your uni?
