The great glory of travel, to me, is not just what I see that’s new to me in countries visited, but that in almost every one of them I change from an outsider looking in to an insider looking out.
This blog is literally perfect! I'm from the NL and thinking of going to Newcastle to do Media for my undergrads - would you say that your course focused on practical aspects as well as theoretical ones? Also, what is the campus like?!! Everywhere I look are the same pictures, and I can't figure out whether it's an actual campus or just a random collection of building within the city! Anyway, thanks so much for putting this blog up - super helpful! :)
I did a postgraduate media course so it might be a bit different from undergrad. Personally, I think it was a decent mixture of both. Again, I am not sure if the same applies to UG.
As for the campus, it’s clustered together. A few buildings are separated from the main location but it’s not sprinkled throughout the city. All sites are within walking distance.
How long did it take for you to get your visa after submitting it? Was there an interview?
I received my passport in the mail three weeks after submitting. No interview. Good luck!
