2022 WUSCA winners
I am a mature (37) student at Bournemouth University and have appreciated the support I have received so far. If I cannot attend due to child care they ensure I can still access the required content, as well as offering extra support for the assignments and wellbeing support. I would prefer more emphasis on mature student social life, but maybe there is and I don't have time outside of uni work due to having a child!
I have been in contact with the careers and placement people who have been very supportive, evening though I am only in my first year. I often attend lectures from home which as a parent is so useful. Sometimes sound/tech issues arise on the online lectures, but if this is the case they usually provide support or a recording of the lecture.
I have lived in Bournemouth most of my life, so I'm very lucky I could go to university here. I absolutely love Bournemouth, it's a beautiful and fun place to live. The beach in summer has such a great vibe, there's plenty of restaurants, pubs and bars. The public transport is pretty good as there's a fairly central train station and specific uni buses, as well as buses as far as the Purbecks or New Forest
Amazing student life, teachers, student support. Great student town, so much to do every day.
Firstly, Bournemouth University is highly recommended by hospitality professionals, again Bournemouth being a place for tourist it creates a lot of opportunities for employment, Bournemouth University organizes many conferences, seminar, social events so it becomes easy to network with professionals in industry, Bournemouth university has a student support team in the student union. It helps students in different ways like funding, counseling, etc.
Course material is supreme and time management is perfect as well.
Mental health support could be better but overall good uni
Difficult to get in contact with tutors and timetables vary a lot week to week so difficult to get a job
I love how the academic curriculum works because we get to do a lot of practical stuff which is crucial in my career to have a better understanding of the professional environment we’re going to be working on in the future.
I love that we actually get to work with a team for our projects and we can have access to all the necessary equipment to shoot, edit and deliver a good piece of work.
It’s super close to the university so it makes it so much easier for us to arrive early on classes.
I have found it a great place for study and doing much in my IT field and I wish all the best to university.
I have always experience great in my course and I really enjoyed studying here and I feel amazing in this university. They have provided a best online platform which is very helpful for the students and I really enjoyed studying on the Brightspace. The faculty is very much co-operative and helpful in every aspect of study.
I think University location is amazing and is very much comfortable for all the students studying there. I really feel awesome whenever I saw my University its an amazing experience studying here. I really enjoyed a lot. I am proud to be part of this university . I wish all the best to university in future and I hope that it will make progress leaps and bounds.
It has that feeling of a small place which I really like
Mainly in person with the odd bit online
Being near the beach is very beneficial when you want to get away from your studies , currently there is a mix of “hybrid learning “ which involves a blend of online and face to face learning
The content is very interesting but quite heavy in workload , covers all of the core sciences so be ready to get your science head on
Great place great location
THE BEACH!!! and the easy accessibility not only into town and the surrounding areas but also across the country.
Lecturers go too quick in lectures and doesn’t reflect what’s on presentations necessarily
It’s pretty great except there’s often something broken or unable to be fixed such as smart tv and awful water pressure
The lectures are of a really high quality and make it enjoyable to learn more about the profession I want to go into. The facilities are amazing and there are so many study spots all over campus. The worst aspect of uni for me personally was probably the first couple of weeks, as I found it hard to adjust and felt really homesick at the beginning. I had a hard time adjusting and I don’t drink either so I found it harder to meet people. But eventually I got settled in and now it feels like home.
I love that my course has been in person pretty much 100% of the time I much prefer being in the lecture hall engaging in learning rather than being online doing it from my desk at home. I have a lot of contact hours a week which I really like and any questions or worries I have I can always ask lecturers the next day or two. The worst thing about the course was probably at the very start not much was told to us the first few weeks so personally I felt it to be a bit unstructured and I didn’t know what I was doing or what assessments I had coming up, but after settling in it got more familiar and assessments were discussed.
I love the beach being only a short walk away and the town being so close by. I absolute love the area there is so much to do and it feels like home.
I love where I stay first year, I feel very safe and secure, and the staff at reception are all really helpful and nice. It is a little bit more pricey than I would expect, however it is really lovely and I am super happy I chose this accommodation. It is quite quiet at night too which was a big thing for me as I need my sleep.
