I have so many options now. im bvery happy
I studied a diploma in humanities and social sciences, history, politics and psychology, my tutor, Steve Overy (im sure he signed me up for history because he had faith in me although i didnt like history!) Was the best thing to happen to me in my education. He was patient and determined to support his pupils, cared about their grades and life choices. i havent usedhistoryin my degree but ill say one thing... this man has enriched my life through his guidance. I now crave information of history and i am a happier person for studying at this college. Ive matured and grown so much under the pupillage of the staff here.
Not my interest
Ok. My home!
Good. library is resourceful and tutors available to talk
Lovely. life altering
Amazing, good intentions by staff for pupils education
My overall experience has been enjoyable yet intense. The course has allowed me to really progress my academic skills at a rather fast pace which is something I will apply later into University.
The course has been beneficial as it's enabled me to learn new academic skills which has improved how I approach my writing with regards to assignments. Furthermore, the classes often entailed group presentations which were really engaging and fun to do with my fellow classmates.
The college facilities compared to other colleges, I would believe carries high standards with a range of computers and laptops available to students.
The tutorials I found were useful as it allowed me to track my progress with my teacher and gain an insight in what areas I should work on.
Overall, the college is very good and the course is amazing as a stepping stone into university. I would highly recommend this college, and the access course to anyone who is looking to get back into education. Especially those with children due to the amazing childcare facilities.
Classes were interesting and engaging, allowing for independent thinking and group work. Teachers are very helpful with questions that are asked during the lessons and treat you with respect. Overall, the course was successful in preparing me for university and has made me much more confident in my abilities. The on site nursery is also very good and is helpful to know that child(ren) are nearby and, therefore, focus on studies.
Facilities are very good, clean and warm classrooms and consistently clean premises. There is often problems with IT, however they are usually fixed very quickly. There is always computers or laptops available while the college library is open and it has a wide range of books. There is also a nursery on site at the college, which is very good and with nice staff who make me feel comfortable leaving my child there while I am attending lessons.
Frequent tutorials are very helpful with support, both personally and academically. There is also many people who have specific roles in their ability to support students.
The overall experience has been great, the teaching has been very good and the facilities and resources that are available have been very handy. Through all the support available i have been able to get good grades and am able to attend my dream university. I couldn't be happier.
very well, teaching has been of a very good level and has taught me valuable skills for work and life.
The teacher, Moore is an exceptional teacher with a vast amount of knowledge to share. I have been greatly supported throughout my course, Lectures are interesting and full of information. Quizzes and team exercises are also used which really help to reflect on work done and gain more information.
it is a good student union, we are given the possibility to say what we would need or what positive changes could me made.
Very good, a good amount of facilities such as a library and computers always available.
great ! very accessible from my home
there are clubs available, unfortunately as i work part time and am also a parent i have not had time to attend these sessions
both academic and personal support has always been on hand, i frequently have tutorials which gives me the time to talk about any issues i have and get any further support i need.
My experience was all good. My experience in class was good. I Had a good relationship with both the students and lectures. The group work with the student give me an opportunity to get more idea about a topic and subject.
The college has prepared me very well to the extent that I can do my work with out any problem, and if with any problem I can take good control of that problem. The college has also made me to keep to time at all times, both in submitting my works and coming to school in time.
The best thing in my course and lecturers are the interesting interactions between the students and the lecturers during the classes. The group work and presentations being done after every class also made it more interesting and give us more understanding on the topic.
The student union was interesting and also helped a lot.
The facilities are very good and efficient to use for every student.
The city life is fun and interesting but not all the time.
I did not get involved because I did not get time to get involved in any of them.
The supports are very good. This is because the lectures try to make out time for very student.
In general I am very grateful with the opportunity given as this helped me to gain confidence as a student but most importantly as a person. I am a mature student and I do not have any problem studding with younger people because the college has rules about behavior, bullying and so on that is one of the things that I like the most .
I think that most of the educational manners the college has, leads to enhance our skills for any type of job because there is practical, analytical and solving problems tasks involved during the course as in real life.
The methodology used focus on the specific subject chosen.
I do not get involved because I do not have to much information and either time to find what is all about even though I have received email it is not clear to me what is the advantages to get involved.
One bedroom flat private rented acomodation.
As a whole they are very good I will just say the size and isolation of the library and opening times should be improved.
This city is well prepared for an student life, there is a lot of things to do for young people as well as a lot of discount for students.
Clubs an society seems to be good in general but being honest is very expensive same as all the leisure activities , therefore is not essay to enjoy of this.
Apart from the support from our lecturers and tutors there is not to much support extra-classes like studying groups or for those foreign students in different languages additional support with writing English is needed in personal support I have some financial circumstances and I did not have support from college mainly because I do not know what type of support can I opt.
My overall experience at city has been great I have met new people and learnt all the key skills that will need to help me develop my self in my further studies, I am very grateful for this course and my lecturers and wouldn't change one thing .
my course has provided a study skills unit where I have learnt various different skills that will help me in employment such as note taking and note making , doing presentations that has given me confidence to talking in from of a mass
the one to one sessions with my lecturers when I need help and the linking of the different subjects that I am studying this had made it is easier for me to understand topics.
I am part of the student union and I think it is great, it gives a voice to the students where important matters are being discussed as well as help improve the students environment to suit them. The student union also gives the student the boost to be better leaders with confidence.
The facilities in the college are very good there are a lot of opportunities that help us student to be better like the library which as a lot of useful books and clubs that you can join to improve one self such as the homework club
City life is very vibrant with lots of energy and a lot of help available everywhere
They are a variety of clubs and societies such a the reading club the homework club and things like the student union that are very helpful and useful
It has been really good I've learnt new disciplines, learnt new topics that I now love and met amazing people along the way. Economics is something I've grown to love and it has shaped the way I think about the world and society. without this course I wouldn't have encountered such a subject, but with the mix of economics, business and accounting, I now know what I want to do and what goals I would like to achieve.
I feel the discipline I have gained from embarking on my course has allowed me to develop key skills in finding a job after.
The best things about the course are the style of teaching, the opportunity to debate topics in class and gain different perspectives on the subject area. The diversity of students and the ability to meet people from different backgrounds has been amazing!
I wasn't a big fan, as I was not involved and was not informed of any of the changes or impact the union had on us as students or as a educational institute as a whole. Good idea but could improve tremendously
good facilities, good computer rooms, and enough room in classrooms. However the library could have been designed better. never quiet apart from in the mornings, limited silent area and the amount of books in particular subject areas could be improved.
the personal support Is good as there are 1 on 1 sessions with tutors where you can assess progress and focus on strengthening weaknesses.
Excellent. Nearly there!! I will definitely recommend the college, though you must be ready for a lot of independent study and quickly adjust to managing your time well. Otherwise it can become overwhelming.
As I already had a job prior to starting the course, I think the course has strengthened my understanding about the economic markets, business theory and financial analysis, which has helped me a lot in my present position and developed my confidence. Excellent course tutors, though it will be useful to have more books available in the library.
Extra library books will be useful. Additional classes at the beginning of the course will better prepare us for the onslaught of assignments later.
Funding permitting, extra classes and seminars to refresh and go over some of the more difficult and complex subjects will be useful.
Fun and fulfilled! great enjoyment and overall very interesting and well prepared and committed teachers. Ideal location for commuting back and forth from which has been useful
I feel that the course has taught me the discipline to structure my work on time and meet deadlines. it will enable me to continue on with my education to have better organisational skills and become a good employee.
The three hour lessons are planned very well so they are never boring and are always very interesting.
The ALS support is great and very supportive!
