Dentistry BDS

University rating (4)

The city is the perfect size and everyone is so friendly, it’s like a campus on the edge of the city! As a dental student the facilities are a bit dated and there is a lot of admin to do yourself. The SU isn’t very popular but that might be because there is a whole city of other places right next door. Accom is nice but expensive.

The course itself is really interesting and very well organised. In addition to that the lecturers are incredibly helpful, you just drop them an email and they’ll reply straight away with any help you may need. There’s compulsory mentor meetings every now and then so you always have someone checking up on you. The teaching on placements is also well structured and incredibly useful. Also the library is well stocked and has loads of great facilities - you don’t need to ever buy any textbooks. Overall the course is interesting, organised, and the teaching is good. In terms of the university and city, it’s also very good. The city has plenty of things to do, especially on the evening/night. Even non-drinking activities like the stand comedy club - it’s definitely got something for everyone. There’s a wide variety of clubs and bars, each hosting a wide variety of events. For the day time, there’s plenty of stuff to do in the city centre. And then due to the good transport links (the metro and train) there are plenty other places accessible too like the metro centre, beach, Edinburgh, tynemouth market, Durham, and more. The food in newcastle is also amazing, there are plenty of cheap independent restaurants which taste amazing. Some negatives of the course could be that there’s a couple of lecturers who are difficult to understand teaching wise, but this isn’t that big of a deal as the same content can just be self taught in 20 minutes with textbooks/YouTube. Also, a few of the timetabled compulsory sessions seem unnecessary whilst in them. But overall these are tiny in comparison to how good the course is. Negatives of the city may be that it is quite small, and so you repeat activities a lot - which I don’t mind, as they’re fun activities. But again, overall, this is minuscule in comparison to how good the city is.

Honesty the best aspect is the city, you won’t find a better place to study and live. There’s always something to do whether that be outside or in the uni. Everything is so close together because of the metro, it’s great. The not so great aspects is that some of the staff have not been keeping to the timetables that were decided on before you start the course/ next year of your studies. However I have been assured that the people higher up are seeing to this issue and I have already seen a change in the past couple weeks. So hopefully this won’t be for too long. Newcastle university is the place to be and if you’re not able to come here but want to come to Newcastle, Northumbria university is literally across the road and they’re also great.

Amazing location and so much fun, the lecturers are amazing and really interesting, campus is beautiful and library is amazing. The mental well-being support needs to be improved and made more efficient so students can get support faster and the students union facilities need to be improved e.g student bar

First of all Newcastle is a very nice place to live in. Everything is walking distance and there are a variety of activities to do around the area. Newcastle university offers great opportunities for students to grow and learn. The campus is fascinating with historic building up to contemporary ones. The variety of activities throughout the year are great, a good way to meet people and enjoy yourself. I would really recommend Newcastle University.
