The annual Whatuni Student Choice Awards (WUSCAs) highlight the incredible work carried out by institutions for their students. Due to Covid restrictions, this year’s awards were not collected on uni campuses as usual, but instead based on submissions from institutions, which were then judged by our special student panel.

Considering the circumstances with Covid-19, my overall experience has been great. I have had the chance to join many great research groups and meet people within my department. The support from my supervisors has been amazing.

OVERALL UNIVERSITY RATING
Tell us about your overall university experience so far.

This year has not been great due to covid and also because I have had 0 contact hours due to the nature of my course. Despite this lecturers and seminar leaders have provided us with a lot of learning material and content to keep us occupied and they try hard to make seminars and lectures entertaining and to create a valued learning experience for all.

I mean everything has been online but considering that 2 out of my 4 modules were independent projects (one of which being my dissertation) that hasn't made much of an impact. I'm lucky that I was able to stay in Norwich so I could access the library as only being able to use stuff available online would have made writing my diss pretty difficult.

Course and lecturers have been amazing. Facilities have been great when I have had the chance to use them. Well-being are good but I feel like they could do better. Would be 5 star if could be more in person I think as I don’t feel like I’ve had the full uni experience especially on a practical course.

This year has been a difficult year to say the least. The transition to online learning was made easy by the university and this has been a highlight for me. Some lecturers have not been as supportive as others and this has proved to be difficult sometimes. Nevertheless, I am going to continue onto another course with Newman.

Primary Education (5-11) (with recommendation for QTS) BA (Hons)

OVERALL UNIVERSITY RATING
Tell us about your overall university experience so far.

I believe that most modules have been carried out well this year, however I have found the workload difficult to complete, due to COVID circumstances. The assignments have been okay, but myself and my friends felt guilty for contacting the lecturers for help based upon the assignments, as some seemed very busy. It has been hard to keep motivated during COVID with university work generally, but this year has gone well overall. The library staff have been extremely helpful!

Amazing experience, but the fact that it was online made some experiences less enjoyable. There was constant support from the staff, they always answered questions really fast through emails.
