Newcastle University has allowed me to have a balance between work and play. The academic side of university is challenging and interesting. There are many societies and clubs to get involved in. All the students that go here are nice and friendly.
My course is challenging but rewarding as well. Each of my classes builds on one another which can make it difficult at times, but this forces me to understand and examine each one of my subjects and how it relates to an overall perspective.
