School of Computing


Course: BSc Computer Science

Choosing Newcastle

I come from Eastern Europe so I have many financial issues with coming to study in the UK. Newcastle offers affordable accommodation for me. Newcastle is also one of the best unis for computer science in the UK.

About your course

I really enjoy the practicals. My favourite module is probably Operating Systems or Algorithms Design. The teaching quality is great, most of the lecturers are amazing at their jobs (especially Algorithms design and Programming lecturers)


This year I’m living in the city centre. It wasn’t hard to find the flat. It was even easier the first year as the university just gives a flat to you. I lived in St Mary’s College. It is very social.

Living in Newcastle

A beautiful city to live in. I love taking walks along the Quayside and walking in the city centre. The people are also very warm and friendly.

Student Funding

There are many places in the city where you can buy food cheaper.

Student Societies

It’s great if you want to meet people who share the same interests.

Career Aspirations

I am still not sure what I want to do after graduatlon, because I am not sure where I want to specialise.

I’m hoping to get an industrial placement next year and get some practical experience to help me figure it out. It’s nice that the uni gives you the opportunity to get that placement.
