Life in Newcastle - what our students say!

Don’t just take our word for it. Students at the University Centre love studying here in Newcastle, and we’re sure you will too…

"Newcastle is a vibrant student city, it is at the right pace, with the right amount of things going on."
Alexander Christodolou, Acting and Performance Practice

"Newcastle as a city is really great to live in, a lot of the times we head into town and do things together. There’s a lot more to do in terms of activities than there is in Belfast, so I really enjoy living in the city."
Courtney Munro, FdA Musical Theatre

"This is an amazing city to live in. I am well-travelled, and nowhere is as great as Newcastle."
Darren Noble, BSc (Hons) Sports and Exercise Rehabilitation

"I have grown up here, but as a student you get to see the different side of it. It’s definitely great and fun, everyone is welcoming, especially for new students, Newcastle is as friendly as you can get."
David Lee, Police and Criminal Justice Studies

"I lived at home locally while I studied at Newcastle College, but every time I was on campus or in the city centre with my friends, I loved it. Newcastle has an incredible atmosphere and everyone is friendly and welcoming."
Gemma Keen, FdA Tourism and Hospitality Management and BA (Hons) Tourism and Hospitality

"Newcastle is probably one of the best city centres to study in, there is always so much going on and the opportunity to try something new is endless."
Helen Noble, Business Management (Leadership)

"I love Newcastle, my friends moved up here when I was 18 and I used to visit a lot. I love it because there is so much to do here, the city is really vibrant, especially for student life. I will definitely stay here after my course."
James O’Hara, BA Hons Child and Young Person Development
