Northumbria University

This page gives more detail than the summary on the “My Options” page.

  • Location: Newcastle-upon-Tyne
  • Possible topics: TBD
  • Department: Design Research (see also the Centre for Design Research)
  • Advantages:
    • Topic match (more on that later)
    • Faculty (I know Gilbert Cockton fairly well and Mark Blythe slightly, and I’m confident I would enjoy working with them)
  • Disadvantages:
    • Distance from London & friends
    • Lower amount of consulting work available
    • Harder to get to Italy and the USA (although I’m told it’s only an hour from Edinburgh, which has better connections than Newcastle)
  • Fees: For 2011-2012, £10,300.

Some thoughts

Prof. Gilbert Cockton, whom I know from CHI and other places, thinks that one of my topics would be a great match.

The university’s website has lots of helpful information about accommodation.

For some reason, the Centre for Design Research thinks that Flash is still made by Macromedia. Hmmm…
