"My decision to study at Newcastle University was influenced not only by the reputation of the degree programme itself, but the excellent reputation of the University and the city in general. I was also attracted by the University's convenient city-centre campus location, competitively priced student accommodation and the variety of different attractions in the surrounding region."
