So far my experience at university has been great. I am on the student union as well as being a student ambassador. This offers me the chance to take part in different activities and also earn extra money when helping out at open days and taking part in the flood a school events talking to potential students. I am progressing well and understanding different topics and have made some friends for life and we all support each other in times of need aswell as being able to have fun together.
Facilities are great. Areas for social time and studying. Lecturers are really supportive. Has an onsite shop to be able to by snacks for tea and treats. Has a starbucks for when you need that caffiene boost. Practical sessions and relatable technology we are able to use
There are many different support mechanisms available such as counselling and also the tutors are always quick at responding to emails. The student services department are always there and will direct you to the right person to deal with an enquiry.
I like how we are offered to go on trips to look at the latest technology and how the industry is changing also how we are able to look at animals system such as lungs and heart disection. The least part is that for a couple of modules, the lecturer doesnt base the lectures around agriculture and focusses more on flowers
Has a careers centre and offers to help you find a work placement if struggling to find your own. Also has opportunities to help out on the farm doing milking and learning how to lamb etc
I love university so much. Askham Bryan college offers amazing facilities and tutors and support and all students thinking about coming here definitely should I love it and would not change it for the world
They’re good the library is huge! And the animal facilities are amazing!!
We have amazing tutors and study sessions
I love how my course is taught, there is always amazing lectures and power points and handouts
They’re is always careers advisors and chats set up all the time and we have to complete work placements as part of our course
It has been positive I’ve made some good friends. All my tutors are good and helpful and there’s no tutors that I don’t like/don’t get along with. I have been enjoying the lessons also.
Good. We have a library and an Higher eduction study space which contains a quiet section so people can do work but also a relaxing space. We also have a shop on campus so can buy food and other essentials.
We have student services where we can go for advice and help on anything. We are able to email our tutors and we receive a reply fairly quickly. We get feedback after all our assignments so we can improve. In lessons also we are able to ask questions and receive help feedback straight away. We also have assignment workshops so we can ask questions if we have any queries
I like how we are taught theory and practical.
We do a lesson a week of academic skills which a lot of the skills are transferable. Within these sessions we also went through CVs and currently discussing interviews. We have a careers department on campus. We also have a person who helps us finds our work placements
I have enjoyed college so far. The subjects are hard to learn but the teachers and tutors offer lots of help and support to make it easier. Offers extra support with revision sessions and that is really useful as anatomy and physiology is a really tough subject so going over topics really helps. Always does recaps at the start of lessons which helps to make information more memorable and there’s also lots of resources and articles to read to support revision and extra study. Really supportive and helpful with supporting sick animals and surgical nursing which makes the lessons enjoyable and helps learning.
Facilities are good, practical room is great to practice for exams
Excellent, teachers are very friendly and approachable and will help as much as they can. Tutor sessions are very helpful as Jess is available to listen to any worries and gives useful advice on any issues we have
The teachers are all lovely and make coming to uni more enjoyable even when lessons are difficult. They are always there to listen to any worries and offer lots of help and support.
Lots of opportunities to do mock interviews, have help with writing CV and extra sessions in general academic skills
Very enjoyable and manageable. Looking forward to the rest of the course. Took a while before we were able to do any real work with animals, however it was quickly addressed which was really good in terms od responsiveness to feedback
Toilets are always fresh and available. Lots of good food options on different locations. Parking is sometimes an issue as the carpark does get full, which means we have to resort to staff or visitor parking.
Lots of support offered in many ways- (email, moodle, library)
Most - ALL of the course tutors delivering subjects are very knowledgeable, friendly, and approachable. Least - ???
Academic skills lessons are a good opportunity to get these skills. Also aware of help through the library which is really useful to know. The moodle page is a really good source
Fairly good lectures are of good quality even if a little dull at times but tutors try to make it as engaging as possible have lots of practical hands on sessions to further understanding which breaks things up and makes it easier to learn the skills required
Fairly good Good teaching Alright unorganised Helpful lectures
Very good tutors really do make the time to listen to what you have to say and try their best to solve any problems that you have as fast as they can and to the best of their ability and if unsure they will tell you and try to find a solution
Is sometimes a bit unorganised and can be a bit dull at times
Have academic skills lessons and lessons to help with everyday things that may help us such as interview techniques
My experience so far has been very good as i have received help from lecturers regarding work. It has also been very good as we have been provided with different activities in and outside of lecture.
The facilities at the university campus are very good and are adapted to our educational needs as they offer alot of resources to help with work.
The university offers all help to students and offers further support sessions if needed.
I like the lengths of the lectures and some of the teaching styles but i would prefer more practicals.
They offer interview mocks and other opportunities in hopes to prepare us for the future.
Has been really good enjoying it and the course. Everyone friendly willing to help with any problems, know can speak to them with trust and confidentiality. Good range of lessons
Fairly good Could have better chairs, cleaner toilets
I love that we do theory aswell as practicals lessons, the teachers are all friendly Could be notified more on advance if lessons are cancelled Not have such big gaps between lessons
They are very helpful in making sure you gain a placement, could let us know more about if any jobs going on campus
My experience at college so far has been good getting to gain new friends and experience a classroom where everybody is interested in the topic. I have also enjoyed the social aspect with living on campus and being able to be independent
My uni have good facilities and are well spaced out to suit everybody’s needs
I think that the support at the college is very good and there is always someone that is there that you can speak to about both work and personal things.
I like that we have a lot of private study time so we can complete our assignments and get revision complete. My least favourite part of my course is that we can’t really get a lot of practical time
My college has a lesson where we can learn about skills and how we can develop them and how we can relate this in the work place
I have really enjoyed my course so far and am looking forward to finishing my course. I enjoy the modules that are taught and have learnt many skills and information/knowledge that will help me when I graduate.
There are many facilities for our course which enable us to practice for our practical exams.
I believe the support from the college is great overall and aim to really help all students in need academically and mentally/physically.
I like the way in which they present the presentations, but some more practical work would be great with the animals. They offer great support for all students who need it.
We have an academic skills lesson which teaches us skills for employment. Also have support from staff with placement.
