The MA programme is very international with students coming to study from around the world. Because it’s an MA programme, learning is supported, but not enforced. There are lots of opportunities, but it’s really up to you to make the most of your studies.
Living in Newcastle is also a lot of fun! It’s an affordable place to live, has a vibrant art scene and exceptionally friendly (if slightly difficult to understand) Geordies.
