Being a city centre campus, Newcastle is a hive of activity. Where some other unis are stuck on campus, Newcastle boasts a city experience, which is probably something new to anyone studying Ag!
With great night life and a very active Agric Society, there is always plenty to do and fun to be had. As well as this, with such a diverse range of degree programmes, there is an equally diverse range of people and societies so non-farming friends can be made too. Although it is a city centre, the uni has two farms not far away which allow us to do practicals and such like. One of the farms is probably the only unit to be half organic and half conventional – meaning comparisons between the two can easily be made! Bad points – lack of tweed and too many cyclists.
