- Where I'm from: UK
The University has a really good reputation for agriculture. Plus, it’s a really friendly city and I liked how close the University was to the centre of it.
Studying at Newcastle
Newcastle offers a much more holistic approach to agriculture. It covers topics such as crop production, but also has modules on the economics behind the agriculture industry and the scientific principles that common agricultural knowledge is based on.
Newcastle is by far the best place to come to study agriculture: the course is highly regarded in the agricultural sector and offers a student life to rival any other university in the country.
Newcastle is a great university. It offers some of the best education in its sector with friendly and approachable lecturers. Plus, it offers an amazing social life, with lots of societies and a city with one of the best nightlives in England on its doorstep.
There’s a massive range of societies you can join, which is great because being part of societies is one of the best ways to make friends. I’m a member of the Agricultural Society, which has one of the most active social calendars on campus, so there is never a dull moment.
Living in Newcastle
I live in Jesmond, which is a popular area with students. It wasn’t very difficult to find somewhere to live in my second and third years, there’s lots of student accommodation in this area, with lots of really good landlords.
In the future I would like to hopefully become an agronomist.
Managing your money
Make a weekly allowance to spend and try to stick to it on the whole, so if you overspend in one week, you should underspend in another.
