Student life in Newcastle

Consistently voted one of the UK’s favourite student cities, there’s not much not to like in Newcastle. It is a brilliant place to live and study boasting a vast range of social hotspots, iconic landmarks and friendly locals. It may sound huge but it plays host to quite a compact city centre that is both easy and safe to explore. Newcastle is a shopper’s paradise with the sizeable Eldon Square shopping centre offering recognized high-street retailers alongside Tynemouth’s weekly market if independent business and local produce is more your thing.
