The cosmopolitan capital of the north east. In recent years Newcastle has been voted the ‘Best City in the North’, it was also voted as the arts capital of the UK in a survey conducted by the Artsworld TV channel, making Newcastle an ever developing, vibrant place to be based and one of the UK’s favourite places to study.
Whether you’re a culture vulture, shopping addict, sports fan or party animal the north east has it all and more.
With excellent public transport by way of a nearby metro station, many bus links and ample free car parking, SA Performing Arts Centre is sited east of the city centre with its railway station, theatres, cinemas, shopping centres and lively night-life. Immediate amenities include a library, leisure centre, swimming pool, a wide range of shops and supermarkets making SA Centre convenient for students and visitors alike.
