Civil Engineering: MEng (Hons).

I knew the city well already so I was excited by the prospect of living here as a student. Newcastle has a vibrant, lively atmosphere.

About your course

Civil Engineering is a very diverse course which offers you the chance to develop skills in a wide range of areas. It’s also a great foundation for employment prospects, allowing you to go into any number of disciplines – it’s not all about building bridges!

Recommending Newcastle

Look at the course; try to choose one that you think you will enjoy. Wherever you go, you’ll get wrapped up in the life.

Living in Newcastle

A vibrant city with lots going on. Renowned for its nightlife, it certainly doesn’t fall short on the entertainment factor. But there’s plenty to keep you occupied if you fancy a quieter life.

Clubs and societies

Newcastle is fantastic for sports, offering a very wide range of clubs to join at different levels. I played netball before I came to Newcastle and joined the intramural team up here – it gave me the chance to have some fun but not distract from my work too much.


I’ve lived in a house with some friends in Jesmond – an area very popular with students.
