As far as I know Newcastle is very highly regarded, beautiful red brick campus within the city, good academic facilities and well regarded by employers.
If you are interested in the North East area I know that Northumbria University are spending a ridiculous amount on new law facilities (£100 mill plus) and as the BVC is available there it is obviously a well regarded Law school.

The use of was suggests not any more and your post was a while ago but incase you want the information:-
As an international student you will come across an accent where ever you go and students at Universities tend not to have very strong regional ones (particularly post graduate) as the highly educated tend not to speak in regional dialect and students come from all over to go to Universities so you could be confronted with all sorts wherever you are in the UK.
After living in an area your understanding of a language improves greatly and after a few months it would be simple.
Weather wise, its easy to say it rains in the UK alot more than you may be used to but thats true nationally as much as regionally.
Everthing else is positive so any more questions welcome. If you have applied somewhere, where are you heading?
