    I am looking into studying at UON next year and have a heard/read terrible things about the uni. I was wondering if anyone has any opinions of if its any good? And why?

    I can't say I have anything to compare it too but I'm just about to finish my first year and I've loved it. I personally love having a smaller class sizes, its a bit less intimidating. The only downside I have is the sheer size if the campus and it's a lot of walking but that's not a bad thing. I guess it depends on what your studying. One of my friends was told not to go here for her physics degree and now she's at Macquarie so there's a lot of factors that affect it.

    I don't understand why many people think UON is bad, I personally have never went there but what's the reasons for people thinking it's that bad?

    Who knows. We aren't as prestigious as some Sydney universities I guess. I've personally never heard people saying it's bad but I know people consider the popular sydney uni's to be better. Then again, we have people commute from Sydney to come here so who knows.

    I know i'm a year late but the issue with newcastle isn't the courses itself which tend to be pretty great and on top of current understandings, it't the uni environment. Newcastle in general is not a very safe place and the campus is a hub for bad activity. lots of drug events and people with knives/guns wandering around campus and the uni itself really just does not seem to care about it's students at all. and don't even get me started about the accomodation.
    let's just say that if i had a choice to go back and choose my uni again i for sure would have gone mq or western syd.
