  • Chris

    Hydrology and Climate Change: MSc


    I would thoroughly recommend coming up to visit the city and the University. This gave me a really good feel for the city and the location that I was coming to. I also got in contact with the head of my course and arranged a meeting to discuss the course in more detail. I obtained valuable information during this trip, which I would have never been able to get online.

    Studying at Newcastle

    Newcastle is a great university and all the lecturers are always happy to help with any issues that students come across; you can just knock on a lecturer’s door and they’ll be happy to help. The library is a great resource for studying as it has a large number of online and hardcopy resources.

    About the programme

    Our programme is more taught than research but the research aspects of it are great. The choice of dissertation topics gave us more ground to do research and help us think about where we want to end up as a career.

    The field visits are extremely interesting and give us the opportunity to see how everything we learn in the lectures is actually applied in the real world. I've visited a water treatment plant, waste water treatment plant, landfill site, waste separation plant and the Drax power plant.
