- Name: Chloe
- Course: Chemistry BSc Honours
- Where I'm from: UK
I chose Newcastle as I didn’t really want to move away – I love the city and I'd heard such great things about the University, especially the Chemistry course.
Studying at Newcastle
I would say that labs are definitely the part of my course that I enjoy the most as they allow you to apply all the knowledge you have been taught.
The teaching quality on my course is outstanding and whenever you get confused the lecturers will always take time to help you understand.
The course provides you with lots of skills like teamwork and lab skills from day one to prepare you for whichever career path you end up taking. All of the lecturers I have encountered so far are friendly and approachable, they will try their best to help you.
There's so much to do both during the day and the night but I would say I enjoy the nightlife the most, with so many events on during the week there’s plenty to choose from and you don’t need to spend a lot.
Living in Newcastle
I chose to stay at home whilst in university and the Metro is easily accessible from most areas which made commuting to and from extremely easy.
I am hoping to pursue a career in medicine and Newcastle gives me the chance to apply as a postgraduate when I finish my current degree. The skills gained in labs throughout the course will give me a lot of hands-on experience I'll need.
