It is amazing met some great people and enjoying my courses. We are given many opportunities to be apparat if and was the best decision to come to this university
The uni offered support in looking for jobs after graduating and is helpful
Within SENDI our first semester we didn’t learn much. I enjoy how the ED studies is taught and the things which I’m learning
I am not to keen on the SU
The accommodation is in a good place for getting to lectures and into the city as it is close to everything
They is a wide range of societies and sports offered at the uni and the societies are welcoming. I am currently part of the dance society
They is CELT at uni which is there to help us out
Amazing - BGU is a community and a family which the university has embedded, BGU is about quality of quantitiy and has made me feel at home but has let down business student's
Our BG Future's team work really hard to get as many appointments for students and they're so lovely
My course is well taught but lack of staff
The SU is amazing 🥰
The university is close to town, accommodations and all amenities could wish for
For what the uni is theres a good range but compared to larger unis its a noticeable lack
One of best counselling services in the country
I love BGU its a lovely university and my experience there has been so wonderful I am considering doing a masters degree there in History, where I will feel supported and enjoy the studies even more.
our history department in particular have been fantastic in supporting us for future careers etc
again in history in particular, the staff are so friendly, they will always stop for questions & will go over things again if you don't understand. The lessons have been divided up so that for instances the Cold War, is split up into manageable smaller parts & delivered in a way that is easily understandable.
very good. some of the rooms are a bit small for our group & the screens in lectures dont always work but on the whole the facilities are very good.
yes, everything is just a short walk away
there could be more. we did try to set up an archaeology society but there wasn't enough interest to keep it going.
very good, my tutor is always available by email or you can make an appointment to see them in person. They always help to explain things, help is always on hand. I also have help from a mentor starting this year & her guidance is beneficial also. Having autism this help has been vital at getting me through my degree. The staff are so approachable & friendly, getting in touch does not feel scary or anything.
Overall so far it has been a rewarding experience and getting to interact with other likeminded individuals with helpful tutors and a course with real life applications.
This course is beneficial and has provided some real opportunities to see different school settings.
I enjoy the relationships the lecturers have with their students.
I think they represent undergraduates rather than postgraduates
The teaching collection in the library is fantastic however they are mostly reference books and cannot be removed from the library.
It is a great location at the top of Lincoln. and vert close to the university so it is a pleasant walk in the morning.
I do not have time to engage with them but I have heard they are great.
Tutors have always been prompt in their email responses and their feedback is always constructive.
Pretty good. A lot more work than I expected but I made the right decision coming here. I had helped me gain a lot of much needed independence and allowed me to develop my personal and academic skills
I haven’t really experienced this yet as I am 1st year but I know that they provide lots of opportunities as you get further on your university journey
Lecturers try to use different styles to engage us. But I would say there is far too many unnecessary lectures
I don’t usually use it as it is so small.
Very good the only improvement would be a shop on campus and better parking facilities
Yeah it’s a 2-5 minute walk to all of my lectures
I personally decided to branch out and use other universities societies to get to know more people as my university is quite small. I would say the societies are good but the fact they are so small they have much less funding and are not the strongest.
I haven’t had to use it yet but I know there is a lot available should I need it.
its okay not amazing but not terrible i would tell other students that unless you really want to teach to go somewhere else because they have the worst organisational skills i have ever seen
placements and projects to give real world experience
i like the more practical modules
id say its not too far its a little out but not massively
They okay unfortunately there arent any societies that im interested
average but some of the way you need to go to get help is conveluded
It’s been good, apart from accommodation, asked for mixed flat but ended up with 5 girls which hasn’t made the experience enjoyable. Wish the walls were thicker as I hear everything from the flat next to me
Good tutors, don’t enjoy the PowerPoint every session
Good, need a bigger car park and to make it free for visitors
Yes but it’s on top of a steep hill so it’d a trek into town and a trek to Tesco for food, not a lot of buses.
I’ve loved it so far. The uni is great for my course and i love the content. The fact it has built in placements is ideal. For me, being on site accomodation in my first year has helped with the transition.
There is a great employment % on my course and the lecturers and staff at BG futures really put in the effort to help find work. The placement office is great to get placements to gain experience.
I like the most that there are no written exams as such. I dislike that we cannot choose the area our placements are in.
It is good but not well represented. There is not enough events going on to give it a buzz.
Pretty good i enjoy the on site gym and the cafes are useful to have.
It does have a rather long walk down steep hill to the centre where the shops are but it is a nice area uphill so it’s worth it. We are close to tesco and aldi anyway.
There is not as many as i would like. They are mainly all sports based.
We have regular meeting with tutors who can be a bit harsh. There is meant to be great support here but i wouldn’t know where to go to gain counselling.
I am pleased to have this opportunity in my area, but honestly, I imagined the lessons and teaching differently. I can compare my experience to my previous courses and this course has been the worst I have been doing in my life in the UK or in the Czech Republic so far. As I mentioned before, I love researching about the given topics, but the teaching is very confusing and insufficient.
Not sure. By providing this course for affordable price next to my home
I was not aware of so many oral tasks, on which we have to work together with the group. The group's atmosphere is not the best, which impacts on the results of our individual assessments. I love studying all topics individually with the support of my tutor and researching topics in my own time.
They are great. They have everything I need for my studies
Yes, it is literally behind the corner
I am not aware of any (I attend BGU through Boston College)
The actual teaching in lessons could be better. We do not get clear instructions about what is expected from us and usually learn by making mistakes. The way the course is designed and delivered creates unpleasant competition and rivalry among students.
My overall experience has been positive, there is a lot of support available which is beneficial for those who struggle with mental health. It is also a great location for the social side of things too.
Very helpful, having an on site careers service helping with your future
I like the level of support that is received, whenever there is an issue someone can help you.
I’m terms of student representation they are very good and the facilities are okay
Good facilities, especially within the library
Yes, on campus facilities are good and shops are not too far of a walk if you want a better variety
There is a okay selection of sports and societies
Very good support
