I love it. although there is a lot of work and time required theres not much more my university could offer. however because of there huge sporting cut backs this is making the university suffer beyond what they can imagine. they were a sports uni and now that's all gone

I have absolutely loved Northumbria. The city is wonderful and class sizes are very manageable. You feel important and listed to, both inside lectures and outside

I like it I guess so far they do try to give you a good experience but there is a good amount that needs improvement. My course could use some serious overhaul.

love the idea of uni however the placement hours make it almost impossible to enjoy that side of the lifestyle. I would love to be able to join in with more social activity or sports teams but I am unable to do so

really good, the uni makes a good effort to keep students informed and up to date. however, recent sports funding that was cut for many teams was not ideal making it harder for me to play sports I intended to. aside from that, overall I am liking my uni experience

University has been OK. I've been able to make loads of friends while working towards my degree. 3 years is a daunting prospect, but it didn't take long to settle in. I'm now in 3rd year and I can't believe I've nearly finished!
