UCAS deadline day has been and gone and now it’s decision time… which university is the one for you?
To give you a helping hand with that all important decision, here’s a round up of our most frequently asked questions on The Student Room this month.
Yes, our Geography degrees are very popular. There are usually places available in Clearing due to people not taking up their offers etc so it’s definitely worth looking into. If you achieve ABB or above you stand a very good chance of being offered a place.
Last year there was an Accommodation Guarantee for students entering Newcastle University through Clearing. We don’t know if that will be offered for 2017 entry, but Accommodation Services will do their best to find you a room in University accommodation – they’ll definitely make sure you have somewhere to sleep when you get here! And don’t worry getting a place through Clearing doesn’t affect your eligibility for student finance.
Each year 15-20 students apply directly to the B210 Pharmacology course. We allow any of our students to change degree specialism once they have completed their first year and so we normally see the Pharmacology programme numbers increase to 35 students after this. You can have a look at a sample timetable within our Student Room forum.
Castle Leazes, Park Terrace, Kensington Terrace, Leazes Parade are the closest to the Faculty of Medical Sciences however you can view all of the Accommodation sites on the University website
If a PARTNERS Student fails the Assessed Summer School, they would run the risk of losing their place. This is due to the fact that successful completion of the Summer School forms part of the formal offer through UCAS. If a PARTNERS student fails the Summer School, yet meets (or exceeds) their predicted A-level grades, they will be given extra consideration and may still be offered a place on their course, however this isn’t guaranteed as they have not met all of the conditions of their offer.
If you apply via our PARTNERS scheme your eligibility will be assessed first, and then your UCAS form is passed to the selector for the course(s) you want to do. If you’re accepted onto PARTNERS then that should be in the conditions of your offer.
