The University offered exactly what I was looking for in my course.It was particularly attractive to me because it is part of the Russell Group, and in the top 1% of the worlds’ universities. The deciding factor for me was Newcastle’s renowned night life, and how the metro system makes navigating this charismatic city a breeze.
