Due to being a small establishment, I feel fortunate to have immense support from my subject lecturers etc. There is a lot of opportunity to organise tutorials and more often than not all lecturers encourage this. However, being a small establishment has often, especially during the covid period, meant attendance in lectures/seminars is low making discussions and practical elements difficult. In terms of student life- it is often stated (due to being a small university) that the student union is very clicky- pledges during some of the current student union campaigns for President/Vice President and part time officers are looking at changing that, to make it more inclusive and ultimately less clicky. Therefore could be subject to change. There is a lot of opportunity for all in respect of an individual’s religion, gender, disability, age, ethnicity etc. However on a more personal note, I would like to see more drinking/partying opportunities.

The best experience is that everyone is really welcoming and friendly and always willing to help. It could be improved however by sometimes having shorter breaks between lectures.

The support is great, without this I wouldn’t have been able to get through. The campus feels friendly and welcoming, the lecturers are passionate, friendly and extremely supportive and helpful.

The best part of my experience is being able to socialise and meet many people even though there was Covid and we had to distance ourselves. The uni is a good size meaning that as students we can access classes easily and quicker than a bigger university and there are many ways to get around. The one problem is that the uni is isolated from the city so there isn't much to do around as to get to the shopping centre or town you would have to drive.

I love studying at Newman so much, I knew I wanted to come here as soon as I had started Year 11. It’s such a great uni, so much support, kindness and genuine dedication is given from all staff – They’re always there to help you whenever you need it. I don’t regret choosing my degree at all - I’m currently doing the foundation year which I’m enjoying a lot, there’s so much support given even within the foundation year. Staff truly care about their students and always do their best to ensure that each student thrives. There’s nothing that Newman can improve, it’s honestly just that great. You won’t regret choosing Newman as your first choice, trust me :).

Newman University is a great place to study because of the community that is made and felt whilst on campus. From the moment you step onto campus you are greeted by smiles and welcoming people, it is not just a university it is a family.
