Postgraduate Reviews of Courses at Northumbria University, Newcastle

so far mixed reviews, but as it is only the beginning of the academic, year this could change. I feel that we have not yet really started our modules in great depth, enough to warrant more tutor support but I expect this to change read full review
Its brilliant, specially the library is amazing. I find everything that I need for studies here. its open 24 hours and computers are available almost all the time to work. read full review
I graduated originally in Hungary. I really enjoy my course in the UK at Northumbria University, because there is a board range of possibilities to develop myself. I was impressed about all the facilities and the extreme different teaching system. All my teachers are helpful, and there is no shame to ask if I don't understand something. I am improving my English skills and the same time I am continuously learning new things. Sometimes it is gruelling but I enjoy it. read full review
Too soon to say !
The taught subjects are interesting so far and teachers are implicated. I also like the many opportunities we have to take part to the life of the uni as sport or volunteer roles read full review
Experience in the uni is so far good. The thing which I didn't like about the course is the schedule. They gave us a long summer vacation in which we got bored. The course started in January then then we had a break in March end and then again it started in may read full review
One of the best experiences I ever had. I learnt a lot from it. To whichever university you might go just be positive and don't worry about the result. try to learn from the mistakes. That's what I did and I had one of the best university experience. read full review

Fantastic. I did my undergraduate studies at Northumbria and I'm so glad that I've stayed for another year. The atmosphere is welcoming and the course seems great so hopefully it continues in the same vein. read full review
I would never recommend this university. Bad teaching with lack of organisation. Lecturer can't explain a things and do not have great teaching techniques. Very very bad teaching and would never recommend it to anyone. Do not waste you time and money. read full review
My overall experience at Northumbria University was appauling. It was such a waste of money. Tutors decided to translate their own personal feelings towards me into my grades and feedback which left me with lower marks than I should have recieved. People generally felt out of touch with the rest of the world, not realising that students have to work in order to make a living and be able to afford university. Tutors seemed to only care about their pay rather than the students and would often be off doing their own thing when they should be at work helping their students. The modules are repetitive and dull and leaves you feeling underwhelmed, unsatisfied and doesn't actually help you with your careers or life outside of university. It was by far the worst 2 years of my life and it cost me over £10,000, avoid it at all costs so you don't make the same mistake I did!!! read full review
Absolutely disgusting in every regard. If I could go back 9 months I would have enrolled at another local University and paid the extra cost.

Choosing to study the MSC Project Management is to date the worst decision of my life and has been a sham to the point of miselling/ malpractice.

I fully intend to contact some form of regulatory body upon graduation and make an official complaint regarding this programme as not only am I dissatisfied, but so are around 30-40 other students I socialise with.

Whats worse is the Programme Leader has been told this and just dismissed everything as not true.

My recommendation would be to not even consider this University or Programme unless you have literally no other options. Even then I would want a large discount before this even came close to value for money. read full review
