Awful. Don’t recommend this uni at all. A lot of people have dropped out and/or are transferring. This uni only seems good for sports students. I really recommend going elsewhere!!!
Our lecturer is poor -providing seminars that seems to be of first school level. Not helpful and quite frankly seems like a waste of time. Students on my course have raised this issue previously with the course leader but nothing was changed at all.
Each course has a student rep but it doesn’t feel like their voice is heard. Having known someone on my course who attended a student rep meeting and raised an issue with one of our lecturers, they were basically just brushed off. The student union holds a lot of nights out which are all free due to the Big Deal, this is good. However, it’s also not good when compared to the actual uni itself -they can pay for ball pits and dogems but not decent staff or facilities????
It’s about a 10 min walk from uni which isn’t awful but when the weather isn’t good it’s the worst. The condition of the halls is poor considering the price. Lifts end up being broken for weeks -not the best when you live on the top floors, and there was a major issue with cockroaches in the kitchens at one block. It’s incredibly hard to socialise in these flats. Not worth the money at all. Can find much cheaper and better accommodation at other unis.
During my interview for this uni, it was hyped up way too much. The facilities are poor. Other unis have MUCH better facilities available. I don’t recommend this uni AT ALL for any fashion courses.
The uni isn’t too far from the uni accommodations, about a 5-10 min walk depending on which housing you’re in.
The only societies that seem to be good are the sports related ones as well as the music ones like acapella. The society meets/outings are poor since there’s nothing to do in High Wycombe. Other unis have much better/dinner societies.
The uni has a good mental health support system in some aspects, but it could still be improved. Academic feedback is good and is helpful and allows you to improve.
I really am enjoying my time at university, especially being apart of the uni Cheer team and having lots of opportunities through that such as volunteering. I have always got extra help in every aspect when I’ve asked for it. I enjoy the freedom of living away from home and the responsibilities that has brought me.
They have lots of different course such as first aid and they have a learning development unit which also includes giving extra help for things such as careers.
I enjoy how there are many different discussion opportunities to ensure everyone fully understands and can give their point of view. I would prefer if there wasn’t so many PowerPoints as each lesson focuses on this.
The Student union at bucks is great as they put on lots of different events and are one of the only places to go out close to the uni.
I think they are standard. The LRC has good resources however things such as the sports hall get booked out quite quickly.
It is close to a corner shop and a large supermarket however, it’s a 20 minute walk from the university and the town centre which is annoying late at night or when there is bad weather.
I think there is a good variety of societies and sports for all different types of people.
Teachers feedback is good as you can always ask for extra clarification if needed and counselling is constantly mentioned and offered if people want it.
I think it’s amazing, you get to meet new people, join various volunteering opportunities. Greet new students while doing freshers helpers. I would tell new students not to worry if they are moving from a far, that they will make friends easily as everyone in first year is in the same boat
By providing free courses which we get certificates for attending and we get to learn new skills by attending them
I like that everything is straight forward and available on blackboard. I don’t have anything i dislike
I think it is very good as when you suggest something they try their best to make it happen
The gym is amazingly equipped, and for example the nursing skills labs are also well equipped and modern. And the library in high wycombe is very good as it has private rooms to accommodate different students needs and likes when they study
Yes everything is within a two minute walk
There is a lot of societies and sports to choose from
I think its good as you can email any at any time and they will be there and happy to help
Gets me there. Can always ask for improvements in support and one to one communications. Bucks has taught me to resolves issues myself
Some tutors are poorly trained or are too new to be helpful
Brilliant however they play to the university's business goals and lack key information relating to operations of the uni
Some are funded well others are not
Not too far. On outskirts of town though
Good but lack of signposting
I have loved my university experience so far by meeting the most amazing people whilst also learning from lectures who are passionate about what they’re teaching. It is a very supportive university and also very inclusive.
Within the first week they get us thinking about our future and it’s great. The student union sometimes run classes to help with this as well.
I’m really enjoying all of my course the lectures are amazing and are willing to support you with anything. The content they teach is amazing. But they also allow us to make great bonds and friendships within our lectures and seminars.
The student union goes above and beyond any other student union. They always put on great events and allow us to try out new things for free unlike other universities. They represent us really well as they are voted by us for us.
The facilities are amazing. The human performance lab is like nothing I’ve seen before. The psychology labs are also amazing allowing us to use ECG’s, VR, etc. There is a gym on site as well as 2 great coffee shops.
The university has a great location being in the town centre. Meaning there are lots of shops and eateries around. And everything is in walking distance so you don’t need a car.
I don’t really socialise with the university’s society’s. However, I am part of the Swim England Performance centre. This means I can train with an elite club whilst still at university. They help support me with my swimming so I can achieve great grades at university and great times in the pool.
They always aim to provide feedback within 3 weeks and always give us detailed feedback so we know where to improve on for next time.
Great and i like the uni a lot so far, great uni, great people great lecturer’s, great courses, great facilities, great location, great buildings and great stuff
Its amazing experience and uni really want the best of their student career. There's many support in our uni. Teachers and student are kind. In the future the uni should do different types of events and trip for the societies
Give us a workshop etc....
I like how the module is work Needed support in placement outside uni
Great facilities and very organised
It's great and many supports
I think the university is great in terms of strictly going to study. In terms of the social aspect, ethnic minorities don't usually hang around too much so there isn't much socialism
Unsure as of yet. But i do believe the student union does assist in finding a job
I like the ability to talk to my professor directly and get help via email or privately one ones. I dislike the different set styles of work. Where one professor may want their assignment a certain format another professor may want it different
Something else... Especially coming from a different country, England is a different and unique experience. From the culture to the people, its a greatly appreciated change
Appreciative of everything
