i deal with deep mental health issues/disabilities while studying which has not made my experience very enjoyable, however i have a great amount of support on this front and i commend the university for this.
my uni makes a huge effort to increase employability which has been emphasised from the moment i stepped through the doors which i have been highly impressed with. the careers department is very strong, staff frequently send around opportunities for work, placements are abundant, ex students who are now employed in the industry give talks, and we are encouraged to apply our studies to the 'real world' at every turn.
i really like how practical the courses are and that we are assigned a eprsonal tutor, and i like the ammount of academic support and the way it is built into the course itself. i dislike the lack of one on one contact with professors, i cannot fill out the contact hours question as i am really not sure of the answer
i think its very nice but could certainly be bigger, there should be an additional room for chilling out and/or events.
yes, in the city centre
decent but could be higher, sports seem to be more invested in than societies.
the personal support is really great and i like how academic development is a part of the course in itself which we attend classes for etc. there is high learning support for everyone and so it doesnt need to be sought out.
really bad..... the worst was the quality of the teaching staff members..... the only ones that were decent eventually left from the Counselling Psychology DPsych
Did not really do anything.... I had to find all placements myself and when I needed the support the staff of the Programme bullied me instead of supporting me, as they should have done.....very disappointing!
Horrible, unpleasant and unmotivated staff.... Only some external lecturers were good
Not time to get involved in this
Good library facilities, the rest was mediocre....
Good city life in Glasgow, but quite impersonal at the same time
I enjoy university very much, its one of the best things I have ever decided to do in my life. My univesrity makes me feel very welcome and I look forward to going every day
Most- the lecturers Least- exams
Ive not gotten involved as it doesnt interest me
Very well mentained and equiped
Havent tried any
I havent used any of the services
It has been really good. Made lots of friends and the life outside of university is really fun. I enjoy my time in class, however feel I learn more during my practice placement education. The theory we learn in class comes to life through placement and allows for further skill development. The skills developed through placement will advance my existing skill set from the theory based educational setting of the classroom to allow me to succeed in my future profession. The library is very accessible with many resources that allow me to further succeed in my studies. The LDC offers many educational sessions as well as one-to-one sessions you can book to help enable success. The professors do make themselves available and care about your success if you approach them. I would rather have a different learning style in which we are graded on more than one assignment, to have more ability to showcase our different skill set.
By sending emails about employment opportunities.
I like most that my class size is small, like least that it is very theory based and a lot less hands on
I don’t much much about it
Library is very good, haven’t been to much else.
I really enjoy my social life here in Glasgow, there are lots of places for me and my friends to go to grab a drink or relax.
I don’t know much about these
Not great, it seems like more of an obligation for the university staff rather than they actually want to help you.
My experience has been great so far. Of course it has been stressful trying to keep up with school work as well as my personal life but I really like my course and am looking forward to learn more interesting things.
Workplace Culture Class, Career newsletters and fairs, emails about volunteering and employment opportunities relevant to our field of study by programme leader, encouragement to go out and volunteer, offers semester abroad
I like the way we get to participate in the course in seminars. I don’t really like having 6 different modules to focus on at the same time and I have one module that I do not consider very relevant to my discipline.
I don’t often get involved because I have a very busy scedule but whenever I got involved it has been really fun. They organize a lot of nice events and do a good job at representing what students want.
They are okay but there are some issues with wifi etc. I am quite satisfied with it though.
It’s perfect for a young person. There’s always something to do and lots of events going on.
There’s a broad variety of clubs and societies so everybody is able to join something that suits them..
Very good. Learning Development Centre is a great way of getting help with any assignment and tutors are usually happy to help as well.
It has been a very enjoyable experience that has enriched my life with new skills, new friends and an education that will help shape my future career that can hopefully make a difference.
Fun, educating and exciting, has changed my life and given me a good outlook for life, with an improvement to my future and a great sense of achievment, i look forwars to the next chapter
Excellent access to careers advisors and imformation, including job fares
Least favourite is lectures
Student union is brilliant and has helped alot
Excellent with lots of choice
Necer joined one
Excellent, the uni supported me greatly
My overall university experience has been generally positive. The staff are supportive and caring, and understanding when things go wrong. My role as both a student mentor and student ambassador have probably been my favourite part of university so far
Have a careers department that posts job vacancies, runs career fayres and makes itself available for appointments to speak about CVs etc. Work experience hub is also available
I like that the lecture slides are always available on GCU learn, it makes it much easier to follow and add notes without copying down everything. I dislike that my timetable is so spread out, I am in classes for 9 hours a week spread out over 4 days
I think the student union is ok, it offers a lot but in my experience it seems a little cliquey which is the thing that puts me off getting completely involved (although I do get involved)
Pretty good, everything is relatively modern and I particularly like the laptop lending system. Only pitfalls would be the need for more working computers
The city is great, lively and friendly
There are a good variety of clubs and societies
The support of my personal tutor is excellent, my acadameic feedback is mostly very good. I have not sued the personal support but looked into counselling and was put off by the long waiting list
I have really enjoyed my time at university since starting in September and have learned alot from what is expected from me academically. The library is an excellent place to study and staff are always helpful.
Understanding what skills and qualities an employer is looking for
I like that we have all our resources online
I am a distance learner and only in uni 3 weeks a year
I find all the facilities i use clean and a good quality standard
I enjoy attending gcu in glasgow and close to the bus station and shops
I dont attend any as im a distance learner
I think the support available is excellent
The experience could be better. If you want to be academically challenged its probably not the place for you. If you really care about a practical education you will probably enjoy it.
My uni prescibes personal tutors that really help with providing contacts that i can reach out to for work experience. They also advertise all relevant work experience opportunities on blackboard.
It is very practical and hands on which j like. However it tends to be repetituve and a lot of lectures are so self intuitive which makes me wonder why they are even relevant which I really dislike.
I think the student union at my university is pretty strong and tends to be very supportive .
It is close to the uni which is convenient however it has a tendency towards becoming very messy and loud. It is an okay place but could be improved in many ways.
For the most part the university has really good facilities and is one of the main things i like about my university.
Glasgow is wonderful, however there is not much variety to nights out.
I wish my univesity had more societies. There are a few im involved with but personally my uni doesn't have enough societies for me to find one that would be a perfect fit for me.
