Well...if Eugenie decides to live in the dorms...we shall see if the security aspect (and cost) will be easier or harder than Beatrice.

I pity the roommate and the family. I am sure they are being screened with a fine tooth comb (and I am talking about Scotland Yard and the tabloids). All the secrets you had or never knew you had ready to be exposed.

So Princess Eugenie is the Windsor-family brainbox (AAB at A-level!). She will therefore be gracing Newcastle University with the royal presence for the next three years, to no one's particular surprise.

I don't think any royals have studied at Newcastle before. Three years is probably the set time for Eugenie's course, it can vary between 2 and 4 years, depending what she has chosen to study.

History would be great, but she is not studying History, it is history of art, which is entirely different and possibly not an option students in the US have.

We students here in the United States do have the option at most colleges and universities to study History of Art.

Yeah it's usually just called Art History...which is basically an art degree if you want to work in museums or auction houses, etc...

Usually the challenging part of interpretation assignments is that you have to back up your theories with evidence, so I'd guess there will be more to it than just expressing opinion.

Probably it will be the same with Eugenie as it is with all college students -- she'll get as much out of her education as she puts into it. Those who want to study hard and really educate themselves in an area come away with a stronger focus. Those who don't want to put as much effort into their studies don't learn as much. It's all up to the student, really.

A bachelor's degree at most universities in Britain, I believe, takes three years to complete. Many choose to study for an additional fourth year and earn a master's degree -- I think that's what Prince William did.

Interesting, Ella Kay. Here in the USA, it usually takes 4 years to get one's bachelor's degree plus an additional 2 years to receive a Master's degree. Correct me if I am wrong again, anyone from USA universities...

Nope that's true. 4 years for a bachelors and another 2 for a masters. If you decide to get a masters immediately after undergrad your gpa has to be a 3.5 or higher if not then you'll have to take the GMAT or GRE. You also have to take those tests as well if you decide to do grad school a few years after undergrad

The English degree courses are very different from those anywhere else, so I am told, that is why places at the top universities are in short supply. There are also differences in Scotland, not least funding.

More news on this story: Royal Examiner

I think it is nice that she is going in the dorms, she'll get to experience more of college that way - if that is even possible.

I like Eugenie. She seems smart & independent and like she has a mind of her own. She's not lead by the nose by her mum.
