Great teaching great place to be and very friendly university where you know everybody by name small and compact.
I spent a wonderful year in Brookes !
Bad Choice for PGCE!The level of student satisfaction with the course is extremely low be aware. I list my experience in 2013 with them. The course started okay and the teachers and lecturers seemed friendly enough just one small problem when you start is that there is about 200 people on the course so if you do study here make sure you do something special to get noticed. As I've said the lecturers were friendly and willing to help you if you speak to them the problems are with the administration. Firstly about 1/4 of the cohort were not given their first placement in time meaning they had to catch up the days required in the first break for uni. Then they did not correct this by placement b some student teachers were so worried about this they arranged their own placement; this is a scary moment if you don't have connections in a school for your placement.Yet even with these shortcomings I was going to let it go the final straw for me was this: I was one of the unfortunate soles to get placed late so I needed to submit my assignment on July 12 - I printed the cover sheet
Someone, somewhere, someday said "Here's a field in the middle of nowhere, you know what we could put here? A university!" Musselburgh is a decent walk away and you will spend a fortune in travel to and from uni into Edinburgh (a taxi after a night out is at least £15).Campus accommodation is alright. It's decent price, relatively flexible rules. While the rooms aren't big, they thought out storage very well when building it. And your en-suite bathroom? Don't get too excited: you genuinely can use the toilet and shower at the same time. Half of the flats are empty most of the year so it's great fun for hide and seek/giant sleepovers.Student Union is ridiculously expensive for drinks and most of their events are . . . slightly less than successful.Societies are extremely popular at freshers, but slowly everyone realises how bad they are and you'll find your 21 year old male friends being coaxed into cheerleading as there is no one else on the team.QMU was voted 4th worst uni to get laid at. Officially. the latest stats were 800girls- 200guys.Everyone is Irish.This one was a rumour, but I heard that more than 700of people who graduated PR
My Course (Politics) was fantastic, I had such great support from the lecturers and still keep in touch now.The small lecture sizes (only 30 in my whole year) meant that I got to know all of my coursemates well and it meant that the lectures were more interactive and less formal, which helped with learning no end.Winchester is a small University, and this has it's upsides and downsides.It is small enough to not get lost and it means you are guaranteed to see people you know on a night out. The downside is that it limits the number of new people you can meet, and the lack of nightclubs is something that will eventually annoy you.
Warwick allowed a great balance between quality teaching, career preparation and extra curricular fun (sports)
This was refurbished while I was there, it was much larger but it has lost some its charm. Gigs were pretty poor although DJ's improved ...
Close to Coventry, which I visited once. I spent most of the time in Leam or on campus.
I was a member of the football club, this was a superb experience and I'm still in touch with many of the people in the teams. Each year in May we go back to the uni for a alumni vs UG match followed by watching the FA cup final together.
Excellent progression onto top graduate programs
Good - variety of facilities
