I am enjoying my time at this university. I get all the support I need for example how to write my essays, how to write refferences, and how to research. This helps me to grow academically. I also get support on applying for mitigating circumstance, something I didnt know that was available.
An excellent effort I am happy.
I like the ways my lecturers teach. There is a lot of readings which can be confusing at times.
Yes it is.
I enjoy university. Although it has been stressful and taxing it has been a good social and academic experience. I enjoy classes however I do not enjoy placements as much but thst is a person thing. It has lots of amenities and things to do and the staff are great. I would 100% recommend GCU.
We undertake placements all over which widens job prospects.
I like the “straight to the point” lectures which give all the information without being boring. I dislike when there are hours in between classes as it is difficult to study in my opinion and it is just a waste of time that I could use studying elsewhere.
Great union! Cheap and cheerful. Hosts a variety of events and has good facilities.
Overall I think the facilities are good. We have many facilities including gyms, eateries, clubs, religious centres and more.
Yes it has good travel links close by and accommodation is close. Shops however are more expensive brands or are small “metro” shops which are also expensive.
Good wide variety however they are not all on campus making it difficult for those who travel in from further away unable to go due to transport etc.
I am unsure AVV our personal support like counselling however I would like to know more about these things. The uni has a great student hub for academic help and personal tutors who you can contact. While there may be lots of support I find it to be not well advertised except the ldc in our uni.
Have enjoyed it, the support is excellent and always someone on hand to guide or help you. Student union could do with upgrade however support by the association is good. Would recommend
Stays in close contact with our placement hospitals and keeps us up to date with interview dates etc
Most- tutors are hands on and always there to support us Least- timetables can be a little hap hazard
Only recently opened the bar it is a little small and doesn’t have a massive selection however we are well represented
Yes public transport means it is easily accessible
Haven’t tried any however appears to be many options
Excellent always accessible
I have enjoyed my experience so far as I have been able to challenge myself and learn a lot since I began my course. I have been reaffirmed by my feedback and results and have met lots of new interesting people.
My uni is extremely helpful in increasing employability the careers department is extremely helpful and the course leaders are always sending us emails detailing courses, work and volunteering opportunities.
I like the way the course is related to real world examples with various additional reading to complete each week. The thing I like least is that the jump from college to uni was a little difficult to get to grips with at first.
There is a good representation of students and facilities in the GCU student union.
The facilities at GCU are very good, there is a gym on campus as well as the union bar. The only thing which could possibly be improved is the food available on campus as it is quite costly and mediocre however, the uni is close enough to city centre to go out for lunch elsewhere.
My university is in the heart of Glasgow and is ideal for transport links as well as shopping & food, its only a 2 minute walk from the bus station. It takes me around 25-40 minutes to get to university depending on traffic and what transport method I use.
There are a range of societies and sporting activities to choose from however, I have been unable to participate in any due to a busy schedule with work and uni.
Some modules offer more support and feedback than others however, as a whole the support offered is very good.
Amazing i love it !! I wish i could stay longer but the course is only 1 year. Great space and staff are excellent. Very supportive and very friendly . I definitely recommend this course
Very good, helps increase my chances
Very structered allows good learning
It is good
Gcu is an excellent university especially if you want to pursue a career in the health industry. There is a great sense of community between students and a lot of acceptence
I love how practical my course is and how we are given time to practise our skills. My lest favourite part is how the physics department are charged with teaching a part of our module but there is not great communication between the optics team and the physics team
Our student union is very lacking compared to other unis. Especially since our union is. Exspensive and not open often
Our universitys facilities are fantastic including the catering facilities as the food is good and great value for money
Gcu is int he center of Glasgow and is in a very handy location considering the bus station is ony across the road.
There is a very wide range of societies at gcu which are so helpful. I am personally in two and although very different they both were very welcoming
My tutor is amazing and is a great source of support. The other services at uni however are over subscribed and have long waiting times
I have been left slightly dissatisfied with my university experience so far. The uni states it's for the common good and yet so far I have witnessed, exclusion, discrimination, judgemental attitudes, lack of support and ignorant attitudes.
I feel my course offers the opportunity to increase and enhance employability for students, so overall I would say I am content with their efforts.
The content is informative and the lecturers are entertaining and passionate about the modules they teach. I believe there should be more class lectures instead of being advised to do self directed learning.
Not applicable as I have not used this service.
The cafe and canteens prices are way over odds and with this being the case I tend not to use them. The food is not great either. The library is good however it could be bigger as it can be difficult to find a space to work, and it may be beneficial if slots could be booked for specific times to guarantee access to a pc.
Yes, it is in the heart of the city therefore accessible by all public transport, acces to food outlets etc
I am disappointed as there is no direct focus on sports or activities for disabled students. I personally have felt excluded from this part of the university which has meant has left me feeling slightly isolated.
The support varies between lecturers, there are some who offer support but when needed are not around or don't reply to emails, then there are others who could not do enough to help.
It's been mostly good. I like the facilities, central location, number of various societies. There are some areas that could be improved mainly in how modules delivered and clearer coursework instructions because some are written in an ambiguous way and caused some confusion in the group. Also, and I'm guessing it's everywhere like this now but (probably because of the volume of material to be delivered) lecturers usually do not have time to teach students instead of teaching subjects , and in some cases teaching including practical elements is very abstracted from real world work scenarios. With that said overall experience is positive.
I have a supportive personal tutor and facilitators. I have the up most respect for them. I’m enjoying my time at university but at the same time scared as I’m an older adult returning to education after leaving school in 1995.
They send regular emails of employment opportunities and open days.
I have no problems with any of this. I like that it’s first thing in the morning and I think both lectures have fantastic methods of teaching.
I believe it is quite good. I know where to look for help should I need it.
Very good, there is plenty of food choices and the library has quiet study areas as well as group study areas.
Yes as we get a deal with the parking company across the street so I spend most of my day at the university library able to study in peace.
They are a great variety of these facilities and societies to join and make friends.
I have had unbelievable support as I have been off sick and worried about essays that are needing submitted. My personal tutor, module leader have been a tower of strength and support guiding me in the right direction with what forms to fill in and who I should be contacting.
It has been very good. Everyone is welcoming. The lecturers are very supportive as is my PT. I’ve made friends and I am loving the course. Everything is going well so far
Helpful lectures, 50/50 placement and uni work
Literally everything you could think of
Very good. PT is lovely
