OVERALL UNIVERSITY RATING
Tell us about your overall university experience so far.
I am happy with my choice of going to the University of Worcester, I have learned a lot and grown as a person. The city is big enough that they have everything you can need, but still small enough that you feel safe.
How does your uni make efforts to increase your employability (careers department, work placements, transferable skills)?
They explain in every course how this can be transferable in regards to future jobs, they have an office specifically for work placements/internships, and they are given time by the lecturer to talk about it in class. They also have programs to support students when they are finishing or have finished their degree to help with career questions. And last, they have something called 'Worcester Award' where students will be awarded bronze, silver, gold or platinum depending on hours spent on; work experience, personal development activities and employability activity. So students will fill out their CV and be prepared for job interviews and their career.
Course and Lecturers
What do you like most and least about the way your course(s) are taught?
Most: how I actually learn things I can use in the real world through assessments, and not only on how to remember stuff for exams.
Least: how some lecturers are sometimes vague on what they expect and wants, and when this does not align with the grading matrix.
How many contact hours per week do you have?
What do you think of your Students' Union in terms of student representation and facilities?
They are good at promoting activities on social media and posters at school. However, they seem to be mostly focusing on the bigger main campus, and not so much on implementing initiatives or activities at the smaller business campus.
How good are your university's facilities?
Good, clean and modern. Good accommodation for disabled students.
Is your university in a good location in terms of distance to accommodation and local amenities?
Yes, my campus is in the city centre, next to shops, restaurants, library, bus and train station and close to the police station.
Societies and Sports
How would you rate the variety of societies/sports?
A huge variety, there are endless possibilities and choices I did not even think about. something for everyone, no matter religion, ethnicity, age or background.
How good is the support offered by the uni? Think both academic (tutors/feedback) and personal (counselling, etc).
The feedback is good, both in class and possible office hours talks. You can ask for private feedback with your lecturer outside of the classroom for further explanation and planning of new assessment.
I have used my personal academic tutor many times, as my grandfather passed away my first year, and I am an international student. My transition was hard and it helped to have someone to talk to. Also talked about further studying as I decided to take a postgrad at the same university.
Have not used any counselling or other programs the school offer, but I do know they have them in place if needed.
