" I like attending the University of Newcastle, the support services are great, the academic staff encourages participation in all aspects of learning. The only thing that could be improved would be the availability of computer labs and spaces and the amount of parking available at the city campus. I had high expectations coming into my choice of program and they were exceeded. Overall I would recommend anyone looking to study a business or commerce degree to attend the University of Newcastle, you will not be disappointed. "

" pretty decent uni from my experience. psychology was good, teaching was good, lecturers were mostly cool, no real complaints other than I wish what we were taught was a bit more practically useful. and I wish I did computer science instead kinda but whatever. "

" 3rd year business student, at the NU Space campus Academic staff vary by discipline. There are some very good lecturers, some who go above and beyond, and some which aren't as great. Ratings are for the NU Space campus. Callaghan is the main campus, which I have not evaluated as I do not attend this campus. Ratings are my own "

" Both the city and suburban campuses have great facilities, including plenty of food options, study spaces, wifi, bars, bike lock up/showers resources, and free shuttle busses running regularly between them. Student services is run very efficiently, with friendly staff and very short wait times. Knowledgable and helpful staff, who seem genuinely interested in student learning. Only major downside is the overwhelming number of mosquitos on campus over the summer months..! But overall, a great university. "

" Good university overall, young compared to many of the top universities in the country but punching well above their weight. Strong research focus, academics are generally knowledgeable about what they teach. Campus is a bit boring, but perfect if you want to focus only on your studies. Beautiful landscape, adequate parking, facilities are dependent on which campus you attend. "
