  • Hannah

    Marine Zoology BSc Honours

    Choosing Newcastle

    As soon as I visited Newcastle being here just felt right. Although a reasonable distance from home, the good transport links make it not feel so far. And it is also such a lovely city to live in, not too large a city either so it’s easy to find your way around, relatively cheap and lots to do.

    Looking at my course it also had modules covering lots of the things I was interested in learning about. The course also seemed more varied than the courses that others offered and provided opportunities that other universities didn’t. Read More.

  • Emma

    Marine Biology BSc Honours

    Choosing Newcastle

    I chose Newcastle because of its excellent facilities for Marine Science for example, the historic Dove Marine Laboratory on the nearby Cullercoats Beach which has aquariums. Also, the University owns a uniquely designed research vessel, The Princess Royal, which students use to conduct surveys throughout their degree. Read More.

  • Ellie

    Marine Biology BSc Honours

    Choosing Newcastle

    I loved the fact that we are a campus university in the centre of the city. We are so close to the shops and everything in the town centre.  I came on an open day without even knowing which course to do and knew I wanted to be here. The city is small enough not be scary and the people here are so friendly. Read More.

  • Callie

    Marine Biology

    Choosing Newcastle

    I liked the idea of being a long way from home and to explore a city I’ve never been to before. The University is within the Russell Group so receives extra funding for scientific research, which was appealing for me since I knew I wanted to study a science degree and this assured me that the teaching would be of excellent quality.

    Upon researching I found that the city itself seemed a friendly and dynamic environment with a lot to offer, making it ideal for living in for three years. Read More.

  • Amy-Louise

    Marine Zoology BSc Honours

    Choosing Newcastle

    I lived in Dubai originally and knew that I didn’t want to return to England and go to university anywhere near where I used to live. I wanted to experience another side of England I had never been to. Upon visiting Newcastle University, it was quite literally the only university that stood out to me. Read More.
