No practical experience offered. No support leading from university to the workforce. I think it’s changed but Newcastle university treats everyone as a number. Just a big business now trying to cash in on university students and pump through as many graduates as possible.

Awesome course landed me a great job to start out with with the help of an enviro core course that included a workplace placement. This pushed me to get part time work while at uni and the company offered me full time work afterwards!
