Advanced Neonatal Nurse Practitioner MSc


Ana Gomez - June 2018

I aam approaching the end of year one of the masters degree and although I am finding it incredibly challenging and difficult at times, I am fully enjoying and embracing the academic experience read full review

Computer Networking and Cyber Security MSc


Mr James Truner - June 2018

Awful and what an expensive mistake. No help or support from the staff. Lecturers are poorly skilled, encourage bullying and the senior management turn a blind eye and don't care. This university should be shut down. read full review

Master of Fine Art (MFA)


Anthony - June 2018

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

Psychology (conversion) MSc


Ae - April 2018

I have met some wonderful people, and the sports facilites are amazing, but academic side of the university has been below standard. It seems to rest on its "Russell Group" status, but the quality of the teaching and support aren't actually very good. read full review

Digital Society MSc


Anonymous - March 2018

It has been stressful due to terrible accomodation and unhelpful/ rude managment team. Also we had strikes and over a month of missed lectures which coupled with little contact time in sem 2 meant i dont feel ive gained much from semester 2. Sem one was good. Sem 2 pretty bad. read full review

English MA by Research


Wendy - March 2018

So far I have enjoyed partaking in weekly society sports. My undergrad was a wonderful experience, there are elements to the MA taught course that needs re-thinking to suite students. (3 hours per sem is too long — it needs to be split up for better understanding and participation). read full review

Primary Education (5-11 years) PGCE


Anonymous - March 2018

Did the university really make efforts? Or did they just take my money, make false promises and then leave me to pick up the pieces? I am unsure why a university would invite a student back onto a teacher training programme after using up their 3 year registration period if they genuinely felt that I failed my last school placement or if I had a suspected mental health issue. I am uncertain that my complaints were dealt with seriously. I am yet to be convinced that this university makes decisions based on genuine principles and values. read full review
