So far I am really enjoying it! It's been fun and have learnt a lot so far in the first few months and cannot wait to see how further I get with this course :) I really would recommend this
They offer us many experiences which increase our skills and make us more employable. They always look for ways in which they can help us.
I dont like the lectures in the way they are set out. It should be less people at lectures so we can gain more knowledge but by having 200+ students it makes it harder.
ITS GREAT! I think that is a really good thing to have in place because it allows the students to come and get their mind off things and relax and get away from the university work atmosphere
Very good. They have everything and more of what I expected when I came to uni for the first time. I am amazed at all the facilities they offer. Incredible!
Yes. The university is close to the town centre and thats a good thing as it means there isnt much travelling that needs to be done when at uni and can still enjoy the nights out being close to home. Since its near town centre it means theres a variety of things to do and gives you a lot of opportunities to take part in tasks and games which can help you to relax from the stress you get.
The university has a lot to offer in terms of the sports they offer. I have taken part to get my mind off and it has really helped me
Very good. We always get asked about how we are doing and reminded about all the faclities available if we do need to use it.
I have felt a little bit anxious so far, becouse English is not my first language, but I'm getting used to it. As I mentioned, I like spend time in library and finding out about new information. Lecturers are really kind and helpful what makes me a little less nervous and stressed.
They make enormous effort on this field. Sometimes I even feel a little bit overwhelmed by this.
I like the topics the most. I find them interesting and inspiring. I don't like the number of hours that we expand on it. There should be more hours to fully cover all subjects
They are very good. I like spending time in library which is open all the time. There are also places where students can get together or develop their passions
Yes, it is
There is huge choice. I think anyone can find something that suits them.
It is great, we can find support on every field we need
loved every minute! my experience as a single parent studying an MSc has been really positive. I would like to encourage more single mothers to study at university of bradford
careers could do more in terms of placements abroad for women with children
most- i enjoy the course layout and content least late lectures
lots of help and support
My overall experience has been good but this is mostly due to the course itself as opposed to the University. I like that it is more vocational as opposed to a more traditional university subject. Generally my experience of the university, staff and facilities has been positive however the student union is quite underdeveloped and there aren't many societies.
I like going on clinical placements and the varied way the course is taught however some lectures can be too long (3 hours+)
ok, could do with more places to get food
university is in a very good location close to the city centre
Not many societies compared with other unis but lots of sports teams
There are lots of places you can get help if needed
I think i gain more experience and i like my university and the course I am studying, also the facilities are good for everyone and the accommodation is near the university
I don't know it
I have enjoyed my time at the University of Chester and I am very glad I picked it. The facilities around campus such as the library are very good for getting work done. However, the catering facilities and the student union could be improved. The gym on campus could also be increased in size and I would’ve joined that instead of having to travel further to private gyms. The lectures are beneficial and the support offered is very good.
The careers department is really good. We have had a lot of visits from a careers advisor in final year and we are able to book meetings with them whenever we require.
I like the lecture rooms, however I wish I had more contact time and support with some modules.
The Student Union isn’t great for activities or engaging students. They could improve a lot for nightouts and events there to get people to actually attend.
The facilities are adequate for the uni, but as there are a lot of students, study space could be increased as well as the food available on campus. I would spend more money on campus if there was more food available here. The prices are good but they are not convince to. They should have a hot grab and go section.
Yes the university is between the retail park and the centre of the city so it is a good location.
I don’t participate in any sports at uni.
The support is very good for being able to contact your PAT or dissertation supervisor whenever you need.
very good lots of help. I did a degree many years ago at Manchester Met , Bradford university is far superior without a doubt in terms of academic help support and teaching . It's location is is not as exciting .
placements, careers department and careers fairs
Its very intense busy timetable and seem to have revise loads and do self directed learning . But this is also very interesting and is expected. The thing I like least is the practical sessions as the groups are too large
can't comment don't really know. Mature student not really used bar etc
Hit and miss the library is 24 hours 7 days a weeks. but if you return books in unstuffed hours in an attempt to take out more , they do not get registered. If you want to join a sports society have to pay for a full years gym membership which is over £100. Parking is good but have to pay for a full year when not using this ,whilst on placements, also close some of the car parks in holiday that you pay for.
Halls are on campus, large supermarket is far, need a taxi or bus, local shops and uni shops are expensive. Lots of unhealthy takeaways nearby and onsite food is expensive. Not much to do in Bradford most students travel to Leeds for entertainment. Gym nearby with a pool and parking, both at an additional cost.
okay lots to do you have the time, if your course is more intense its difficult to find the the time
Very good if you need the help just need to ask.
At first I struggled to get my head around everything thrown at me and I thought that I needed to know it all! This was scary, but with time I started to understand things gradually. My tutors were very excellent and always available to help. I cannot believe they got this much time for all of us. I am starting to love my dream course now - thank God I am finding my head above water.
sensitisation jobs available, better CV creation
well taught both practically and theoretically.
yes i cannot complain
Couldn’t be happier, everyone is really friendly. The course is taught exactly the way I want it to be and the staff are really knowledgeable and helpful. The only thing I would add is that the choice of books in the library catalogue is limited and you should be able to reserve from the shelf
They’re forever doing workshops and getting in contact about jobs. Uni job is a great idea and if I needed advice I’d know exactly where to go. The work experience and study abroad programmes are also useful
The lecturers are amazing. The class sizes are really small so it feels like real value for money and you can get to know the staff really well. The content is challenging but also really interesting and the fact that the lecturers have industry experience as well as academic knowledge is really useful. I don’t think there’s anything I would say I like least, having transferred for my second year the experience at Chester is above and beyond
The fact we have a pool and gym on campus is useful. I haven’t had much to do with the SU though
The library isn’t the best, the online catalogue is limited and you can’t reserve books from the shelf so you have to physically go in. There’s a nice little cafe to eat in and there’s a pool and gym onsite too.
Yes, 10 minutes walk to town and in the middle of a residential area with plenty of student accomodation
Lots of sports societies but not many other societies to choose from beyond those
The counselling service is so fast and they offered a full comprehensive guide to the options available. Feedback is good, I like the fact you know exactly when you will get grades although some tutors are slow at replying to emails
My experience at the University of Worcester is fantastic; I am a 59-year disabled student who worked as a nurse for 34 years. I am hearing impaired. I retired from the NHS on ill-health in 2012 after having spinal surgery. The campus is conducive to study, and the green spaces are very therapeutic, this environment with its green spaces and user-friendly layout is key to my ability to function optimally. The course is relevant and the curriculum is fantastic. Both the academic and administrative staff have been very professional. I am now able to use my transferrable skills while reading for my degree in Public Health with the help of the library staff at the HIVE I have been able to utilise resources for the course. The IT staff have been so helpful in helping me use the assistive technology that I have been allocated. I have recently lost my mother; the team at the university have been very supportive in helping me to cope with the bereavement. I have been signposted to agencies to help me to adjust. I have since been able to resume my studies and maximise my potential as a mature full-time student with confidence.
