University is excellent, tutors are very good to explain, facilities are good, library is available, student support are the best , special Christmas parties are available.
i think its gonna start in next few days
I like the most is the tutors are very friendly they teach course in a friendly manner and easily understandable and take quiz and different projects for speeding up the skills for students
Very good facilities like early bird discount, Travel pass for students discount , WI-FI for students, library. etc
Yes, University in a good location in terms of distance to accommodation and local amenities.
Excellent Support team from the University academic and personal.
Good. Great staff , excellent tutor. Environmental friendly and easy to access. I would reccomend this uni because the support is fantastic and the location is great.
Supported us and provide relevant resourses
Blended learning Fantastic lecturers Very informative
Most of my year has left. We are now a collective of 3 groups. They are not flexible, they do not accommodate single parent families. Morale is very low within my group. It has some amazing staff and if they did not mess with your hours and made workshops more engaging. Would be great.
They give you a link to a website. I do not feel they give any support. No placements, visits etc
The lessons are the same as ilearn. Which is supposed to be an overview. Never feel like we get to look at anything in depth. Small classes, better help from tutors
The quiet study room is always being used for other stuff. Lack of healthy food options. Plenty of computers
It is well located.
The tutors are amazing. The university is not flexible.
So far, I've enjoyed working towards my degree. Student support - The worst part Tutors - Lovely and Supportive Classmates - Support each other and are polite and respectful
The university doesn't. The tutors do.
The thing I like the most is the tutors themselves. Despite all having different teaching methods, they ensure that you are well prepared to do your assignment. The thing I like the least is when I have to speak to student support for anything.
Average. The tutors are amazing and more helpful than anyone else from the university. The library isn't actually a library, its a room with chairs and a couple of computers. The online library can be hard to use and often doesn't have what you're looking for. The iLearn (online learning facility) is often down and not working. This occurs at least once a module.
I don't live near the university so I don't know about the accommodation. However, theres many places to eat and drink near the university to go to during breaks.
The support given by the tutors is spectacular. They go above and beyond to ensure you are happy and well prepared to do the work and to even move on the the next modules. The student support however, is often the opposite. If we have an issue they usually don't give a helpful solution or response and at times we don't get a response at all. The support given for mental health issues is awful for a university that tweets about mental health and holds days dedicated to coping methods. When you go to them to explain an absence they just rattle off their 3 stages of being in trouble without actually listening to what you have to say.
Tedious with a lot of repeated assignments. We had two modules on Database development, one called databased design and one called implementation in both we designed and implemented a database with questions being almost the exact same with minor deviations but in essence, requiring the same effort.
Most of the offerings are online via the use of Industry Certified Courses some for free and a careers portal to test how employable you are.
Mostly I like the ability to search what the tutor is talking about to see the concepts in more detail. The biggest issue is that everything is taught like a cram school lessons that in college and from what I have heard at other universities would be taught over multiple months are taught within a week
Library offers very little for my course, there is 0 support for required software to complete assignments, There isn't even access to simple programmes like Notepad++ let alone more specialised stuff like XAMPP with lessons ending up being cobbled together in hopes the tutor can find an online alternative which in of itself can cause problems such as the site not supporting code. This has been going on for two years and causes the lessons near to the end of modules 6 weeks run time to break down into nobody turning up because they can't do the work from there. There isn't a physical library and everything is done through ebooks, the site used is pretty mediocre and the options of books I have access to is lacklustre making almost all of my citations online ones or ones taken from the Library in Manchester. with many others talking about how they go to Manchester Metropolitan University and use the library there.
It close to food places and quite close to Manchester city centre .
There is little counselling that I know off, tutor support is limited often I ask a question hoping for a simple answer and it takes 10 minutes for him to come to a conclusion I had already made and hoped for quick confirmation. Feedback varies from subject to subject with one assignment having 0 feedback at all just what mark I got.
i had good experience to study my chosen course, it did allow me to continue working and study, it also made my dream come true after looking my family for long time but it gave me the possibility to go back to study and graduate the field i liked the most
i am not aware of this
i like the timing, but some of the teachers are not suitable for the module they teach
it has blended courses which fits around my job and my family
yes it is in high street where there are a lot of shops and banks
there is no much support either academic or personal
Good experience! I will recommend this University to others that they may have for their future a brilliant and bright future in whatever they are looking for...All they have for your success in life. It depends only on your commitment.
They are giving the opportunity to have a blackboard for the job offers.
Every study is always taught!
Very Good! This University is openminded to everyone. It gives a lot of possibilities to grow up with them.
Professional, excellent and relevant content, brilliantly structured and well presented. I absolutely love it. The tutors are highly skilled and caring. I can truly recommend Arden.
I emigrated to the USA a month ago and would not have had the confidence for my new job if it wasn't for my studies. Outstanding sense of personal development.
The content is of an extremely high level and the format in which the material is presented is excellent.
I'm an online learner so cant really comment unless you mean support facilities? If so, outstanding.
Cant comment, I'm an online student.
I have been so impressed with this. My tutors are superbly knowledgeable and just so supportive.
Very welcoming, especially my tutor so far. And the exam staff were so reassuring to me, as I was the only student who hadn’t completed an exam for many years. All the resources were detailed
Extra study skills section available
Like that is available any time of the day, however due to working it’s hard for me to participate in the tutorials
Although I have only recently started this course, the content was great, resources always available. And the tutor is always on hand to answer any questions. This is great as it all fits around a full time job!
N/A as online learner
All responsive when I have needed them
Overall I feel positive towards my studies and Arden support my needs towards learning. I was hesitant at first as it was a change for me to study away from the campus, but now I am settled in and completing assignments my self doubt has decreased. Great Uni !
I am yet to experience this ?
I enjoy the distance aspect of the course , I can plan my studies around my personal life helping me to feel less stressed. It can be difficult to feel supported when you are living 100 miles away from the main campus.
Overall the facilities are fantastic for distance learning, I cannot speak for the on site facilities as I am yet to visit. Overall the staff ensure that all materials are available to students through the moodle portal.
Due to the option to engage in distance learning Arden cover all area's for study.
There are little opportunities for students to seek physical support, but there are online counselling support networks available.
