Disgraceful. Useless. Lecturers were nasty and spiteful. Overall poor. Avoid. Attitude from lecturers is highly negative. They don't help students get the higher grade. Lancaster university need to look at the majority courses being delivered and the people that are being employed to teach the degrees. Many don't even have a masters degree never mind a phd degree. The staff are so lazy and not bothered.
Absolute rubbish university. Bums on seats. Staff always off sick. The lecturers are unwelcoming. Lecturers have failed to communicate with students when they are off sick. Why employ lecturers that are constantly going to be off sick. Lecturers are rude and come across arrogant. The lecturers do not care about students. They care about taking money off students. They keep hassling you for money towards fees which has already been paid. Disgusting behaviour. The university is very disorganised. There is alot of favourtism that goes on. The university seems to allow plagiarism but will deny when asked. Some lecturers put students down alot. Staff are not nice and come across as confrontational. Some lecturers are nasty and spiteful. They constantly use inappropriate language in class towards students. It's all about the money, frauds and cheats. Lack of support from lecturers. Lecturers never reply to emails which is really annoying !!! Many lecturers are very insulting. Management only care profits. Very poor university. Avoid. If lecturers turned up on time and gave coursework help to students then things would improve. Need more books in the library for students. This happens on many of the degree courses. Disgraceful university. They should all be ashamed of themselves. All lecturers and the management at the university should read this review and other reviews below. I wish new students the best. Get yourselves to a better university.
Very poor. Lectures are rude and have favourites.
Poor. Too many students not enough computers and books. Many have mentioned this. The university couldn't care less.
Overall poor. When you ask for help with coursework the lecturers could only spare five minutes of Fridays. Some mentioned they don't have the time and walked away when asked for help with coursework. Useless university.
Loved it. Would definitely recommend this course to others. I have learnt so much. I came in knowing nothing. I have left with so much knowledge. I would love to thank my lecturers.
They offer amazing support, guidance is avaliable at the university
I have enjoyed every aspect of this course.
The facilities could be improved
Tge tutors and tge feedback though out this course has just been fantastic. The support the tutors offer you is so helpful. They are lovely individual's and I've enjoyed my journey doing this brilliant degree.
Blackburn college is awful. There are a handful of lecturers that are very good. They are becoming demoralised with the college. You pay your money, in my case £5000 and after that they are not interested. Badly organised. Terrible, rude incompetent management. They employ inexperienced, poorly qualified teachers. The promised us one awarding body and changed to another one. We have waited months and months for certificates and then when they arrive they have ignored the letter you gave at their request to post out your certificate. There is nothing that they can do well. The whole course have been let down and yet we have had no apology other than from the embarrassed lecturers who still care. I would suggest that you go elsewhere even if it is inconvenient, more expensive and takes longer. Blackburn will let you down again and again.
Never used any other than the classrooms where we couldn't do the necessary work as they didn't have the right equipment.
My experience so far has been very poor and i regret ever coming to this university. Lecturers are very poor and are always being replaced. The university does not seem to be able to keep lecturers longer than 2 months at any time. Practicals are very basic and not to university degree standard more to level 3 standard. Lab Apparatus old and not calibrated giving false results. I would not recommend this University to anyone, I would go as far to say go and find any other Uni but this. Also this University seems to allow plagiarism and cheating but will deny this when it is brought to their attention. All they are interested in is passing as many students as possible to boost their statistics. So if you don't want to study hard and learn very little this maybe the uni for you.
Not one thing comes to mind. They are so full of their own self importance that students are left to their own devices. The course is very poor and lecturers are not much better.
Very poor and not worth joining
not very good at all. Library is short on text books for graduates more for college students
Poor very little to do
would not know as i have never been informed of any
Very poor on all levels
RUBBISH - STAY CLEAR. THE COLLEGE HIDES BEHIND LANCASTER UNIVERSITIES REPUTATION, BUT PLEASE DO NOT BE FOOLED. STAFF TURN-OVER IS HIGH. STUDENTS CONSTANTLY RESIT.
STAFF ARE LAZY AND NOT REALLY BOTHERED. THEY THINK IT'S OKAY TO JUST LET YOU PLOD ALONG AND VERY OFTEN THEY PHONE IN SICK AND CANCEL LECTURES.
NOTHING - I'M TRANSFERRING TO ANOTHER UNIVERSITY, AS BLACKBURN IS SERIOUSLY LAZY, RUBBISH AND DISORGANISED.
HOUSING IN BLACKBURN POOR AND SUB-STANDARD IN THE MAIN - BETTER LOOKING FOR ACCOMMODATION TOWARDS CHORLEY AND PRESTON, AS IT'S BETTER.
NOT MANY AND OVERCROWDED
NONE APART FROM BRFC AND THEY'RE NOT DOING TO WELL.
RUBBISH AT THE UNIVERSITY - IT'S SELF HELP. THE 6TH FORM HAS BETTER SUPPORT, BUT THAT'S IT AND UNI CAN'T ACCESS. THE UNI ,PART IS UNDER FUNDED AND BADLY LEAD.
Dissapointing, very disorganised, complaints regarding course not taken seriously. Will not recommend. The facilities at the university are a joke especially in the computing sector. Lack of PC's and broken equipment take 2 months to be fixed.
Good job prospects.
One out of 4 tutors I would recommend.
There isn't one.
Poor. Computers are "Second Hand" cheapness from the college must be 6 years old. The switches, routers are always broken in some form. Rooms are terrible. How can you have labs on a computing floor without any computers!? Takes 2+ months to get technical jobs fixed.
Not much city life.
Disability services are great. The rest aren't worth their wages.
Unfortunately the standard of the university is going down. Tutors are not always inclined to help students achieve anything higher than a pass mark, as apparently that's the 'level the are required to teach to'. This attitude from tutors is highly negative and has definitely had an impact on me deciding to carry on my further studies at another university. The facilities are generally good, many libraries & canteens to choose from. Maybe Lancaster as the governing body of some of the courses should get involved to raise standards
