Wonderful course, wonderful city, but impacted by union strikes
anonymous
United Kingdom, Undergraduate
Geography, 2020
Overall
My time studying Geography at Newcastle University has given me an incredibly broad and in-depth education on the world that surrounds us, with a focus on human geography and global interconnectedness. Lecturers and teaching fellows in the human geography department have been wonderful, giving informative lectures and seminars as well as providing one-to-one meetings for further academic and pastoral help. Newcastle is a vibrant and accessible city with lots to offer - the university campus sit right in the city centre giving you every opportunity to explore your surroundings. Although I have had a generally positive experience at Newcastle University, I lost a number of weeks of study to union strikes and to the coronavirus pandemic. I believe that the union strikes continued for an incredibly long period of time due to the Vice Chancellors failure to meet the needs of staff and treat them with the respect they deserve, showing poor management at the highest level. Although the pandemic has been unruly and unprecedented for everyone, I also believe that  such a drastic change from participatory to remote studies had an impact on my progress and wellbeing in my final semester. I hope that more inclusive yet appropriate measures have been put in place as we begin to learn more about the nature of coronavirus and how it spreads.

Semester abroad at newcastle
Eva A
United Kingdom, Undergraduate
Business Studies, 2020
Overall
I came to Newcastle to study a semester abroad and took master level courses. My overall experience was good. Campus is really big and you have lots of people to meet people or hang out with friends. The Students Union has its own building with its own bar!

Lectures are well structured and most teachers seemed to have really good knowledge. However, during my semester some classes were affected because of the strikes. I had friends that didn't have classes for two weeks straight. I think this was definitely a disadvantage.
