Why PARTNERS was the best thing I did

A Picture of Abi

The words ‘summer’ and ‘school’ combined within the same sentence is not something that usually fills a student with excitement, in fact, quite the opposite.

After the battle of A Level revision, attending a summer school was the last thing on my summer agenda, but I’m so glad I didn’t listen to the cynic in me. PARTNERS is a fun little taster of university life, and will make you more excited to come to Newcastle University than ever before.

If, like I was, you are apprehensive about moving away from parents and into the big adult world, PARTNERS will reassure you that you’re going to be absolutely fine- I promise! Everyone on the summer school is in exactly the same boat, and everyone wants to make friends and enjoy the start of summer together.

PARTNERS is a great way of making friends, trying out your course and taking a small step towards independent living (with the safety net of food included- not having to live on pot noodles is an added bonus!).

I lived at Windsor Terrace with a lovely group of girls who were all slightly nervous and excited to be away from home, just like I was. It was great to be with a group of people who were also new to the city, as this meant we explored the campus, shops and bars together!

By the time freshers’ week rolled around, I already knew all the best campus shortcuts that ensured I could wake up 5 minutes before a lecture and still have time to stop to pick up a pre-lecture coffee.

PARTNERS was a great way of meeting people, growing comfortable with the University campus and getting a reduced offer! Having the reduced offer definitely takes the pressure off during A Level revision, and really made me more excited to be going to university. I’d recommend PARTNERS for anyone wanting to go to Newcastle University!
