Overall experience has been quite scary and daunting especially being a first time student... i am still trying to find my feet if im honest im not enjoying it at the minute as im worried im not doing my best so far.
Always on hand with any help you need or advice.
To be honest i dont like this GCU learn as it can be quite confusing as to where to find the work needed.... good thing about thd course is the lecturers wow amazing.
The best facilities on hand
Glasgow Caledonian is in the best place situated right next to the bus station and town centre. Ideal location and so easy to find.
Great variety with an onsite gym
Great support and good feedback on all aspects.
Very good, love the campus and facilities are modern everyone is helpful and friendly. The welcome programme was great, lots of activities that are offered.
Invites employers on campus, offers career days and courses
I like the interaction we are able to have with each lecturer and that it is very interactive and not too big of a group
Facilities, especially the bar could improve
Good, gym could use new equipment
Could be more, but I think the uni is too small
I have felt that it has been an overwhelming experience coming into third year of university straight from college but I am getting used to it and learning that support and assistance is available to me I just need to ask for it.
I feel there is a lot of effort made and a huge emphasis on employability and our opportunities as future graduates. There is many programmes and opportunities available to you to prepare for your future career and gain the skills and experience you need.
I like that independence is given to students to take responsibility for their own work ethic and to get out what they put in. What I do not like are lecturers who do not prepare an engaging lecture/seminar and read straight off of the slides.
I honestly have not had that much information since I transferred into third year regarding the student union etc but I imagine if I were to search for it on the website I would locate the information I needed.
Very good. The library is large and provides a large number of computers and laptops. The only problem is, due to it being open to the public, there are often times when you have to walk for a while to find seating and somewhere to do your work.
Yes, Caledonian is close to a bus station and various train stations which make it easy to travel to. There are several shops close by and restaurants.
There is a large variety of clubs and societies for students to join which cater to loads of interests/hobbies.
I believe the uni has plenty of support if you know when and how you can access it. We were given weekly LDC slots that we could attend and sessions running on how to structure essays, reference and prepare for exams etc.
my experience has been really good and i would highly recommend it to anyone on the fence about applying. join societies and get to know your peers as much as possible and enjoy your time here
a lot of effort
like most - interactive dislike most - no internship/work experience
pretty good, lots of space and facilities for students
yes, around 2 mins away
its okay, needs more variety
It is a very well organised university that seems to rally care about helping the students have a positive experience. The lecturers are all very helpful and willing to discuss any issue further after class
There are work placements for undergrad students and a career website with helpful information and job openings.
There are a lot of lecturers each talking about their spesific topic of expertise making class more intersting and interactive
They're doing a good job as far as I can tell but I don't really know that much
Very good, and there is also a focus on sustainability
Yes! It's next to my accommodation and a 10minute walk from the centre
Big variety, a lot of activities taking place
We each get a personal tutor that can help us with anything we might need. There is a wellness centre where you can talk about issues that may bother or affect you.
My overall experience is amazing in the university so far . When i first entered in the university i was worried that how the university going to be and how the people studying there are but it has been almost 4 months in this university and i m enjoying studying there . People in glasgow are very cery helpful Blessed to be in Glasgow
As i m a first year student so i dont know much about this but after talking to my seniors i get to know that they are very helpful for students eho need or looking for a job
The most i like about my course is that there are lots of practical in our course and the least i like about the course is somedays it get hectic
They will help u in any condition or in any situation . There are always there for you and that’s the best part of them
They are very good
The distance from university to accommodation is like 15 mins walk which is a good distance and the location of university is very good
I m playing badminton and doing gym in the university so it is very good sports facilities in university
The support offered by the university is very good .They support you in every way wheather u r feeling homesick or you r facing problems in you modules
good, stressful in final year my course is very male dominated - lecturers 100% male, students about 90%, there's not even a female toilet on the floor our lab is on (there's a male toilet though).
they do. i find it patronising at times.
depends all on lecturer - i like great, interesting and in depth lectures the most sometimes too quick to make notes, sometimes student engagement and participation is not des/req-ired i wonder if powerpoint is really a helpful and necessary tool for lectures, i find it rather distracting and wished it would be used less.
...? do you mean toilets, the canteen or the lecture theatres, labs and library? study-related facilities are ok. not inspiringly great, but they do the job. hate the canteen as they don't label food vegan or vegetarian and it's a lenglthly and painful procedure to get an answer about whether a dish is vegan. there seems to be no female toilet on the 3rd floor of the moore building where my lab is.
sport is decent, there seems to be no lobby for vegans
tutors - ok counselling - n/a
Having worried about coming to university incase I struggled with the work I have been surprised at how well I have coped, the lecturers are so supportive and good at getting you through the course work and you are told about assessments from the start of the module so you can start preparing m.
Yes it is easily accessible on public transport
From the aspect of my accommodation, the university facilities and services, public infrastructure and people around Glasgow are all great. Although it is called as Glasgow City but the living cost is affordable for a student and hopefully the council will keep it this way.
They should frequently organize event involving people from industry which relevant to the course so that the student could mingle around and self evaluate the best and possible carrier path gained from experienced members of industry.
I love module that contain assessment marks from student participation in seminar, attendance and essay coursework. I don't like module that depend solely on essay coursework for assessment.
There are great in voicing out the student rights.
It is all great about my university. The facilities, lectures, learning materials, books and resources, administration services are all awesome.
This is my fourth month being here, not much of comment.
They both great. Nothing more could be expected.
Wonderful, learned a lot on how to manage work load/balancing social life/working part time. Been stressful at times but its just about keeping on top of everything
Tremendously, very happy. Always happy to help and put up posts with job opportunities
Late night lectures Overload of clinics not enough time to balance studying
Represent students well and point vital concerns across the board
Good variety, plenty of choice
Could be better
