OVERALL UNIVERSITY RATING
Tell us about your overall university experience so far.
So far I am extremely happy with my experience within university so far. I have received and continue to receive plenty of support within the degree. I am happy with the facilities available within the university and would recommend the university to anyone thinking of going there.
How does your uni make efforts to increase your employability (careers department, work placements, transferable skills)?
They put on regular career fairs tailored to health professional degree students. The university have employability awards recognising students for activities they undertake throughout their time studying. Students can learn to articulate their skills from this through application forms, CV's and job interviews. There are many opportunities to volunteer within the university, be it within the library, as a student ambassador or even as an Angel, supporting the onsite nightclub ensuring it remains safe.
The university offer one to one support, workshops, talks, internships, summer schools and business start up support to those graduating to support them in to getting in to employment once they have graduated.
Course and Lecturers
What do you like most and least about the way your course(s) are taught?
Within the course they have made a recent change. for three days we are taught theory and for two days we are taught clinical skills, putting the theory in to practice. I like the way this is constructed as it allows us to put into practice skills weekly as opposed to a lot of skills in one go.
I like how our lectures are interactive and engaging. We get to participate as a whole group, offering a diverse range of thoughts and ideas, allowing the discussions to be broader.
How many contact hours per week do you have?
What do you think of your Students' Union in terms of student representation and facilities?
I have not yet got involved with the Student Union. I have only been at the university seven weeks, and at the moment I am trying to get a good work/ life balance. However I know where they are located and the support they offer. I like how Student Union representatives are often seen and easily identifiable around the campus and are available to speak to at any time.
How good are your university's facilities?
I think the University facilities are excellent. We have an excellent Medical building and an extensive Library facilities. These are the facilities I have made the most use of. there are a variety of canteens on campus, and an excellent Union Hub.
Is your university in a good location in terms of distance to accommodation and local amenities?
I have not experienced the city life as I commute to university daily and live at my own home while I am studying.
Societies and Sports
How would you rate the variety of societies/sports?
I have only really been introduced to the Midwifery Society. It is an excellent society that offers plenty of support and study days that are invaluable to strengthening our knowledge and experiences. During welcome week we were introduced briefly to various other clubs. for example sports clubs so I know there are many other clubs and societies available. There is also the opportunity to set up any society if there is one you would particularly like to be involved with, however it may not exist as yet.
How good is the support offered by the uni? Think both academic (tutors/feedback) and personal (counselling, etc).
The support offered by the university is exceptional. Within the degree we are allocated both AST (Academic Support Tutors) that support you through the degree if you need personal support. For each module we are also allocated Module AST, which is a point of contact for support specific to the module and the assessments within that module. There is also extensive access to wellbeing support outside of the degree where access for emotional support can be sought.
