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.
University experience so far has been pretty great, a lot of oppertunity to meet new people and learn from good tutors, the night life in Glasgow is fantastic overall a very good experience so far
All of the above
Some tutors are great, some aren’t
It’s a bit dead
If the uni fixed its communication with students it would be amazing. This is the key to enable students to keep in the loop of things and be updated on everything that is going on
Placements is a great skill to get. It opens up so many doors for you
I dont like evidence based practice. Love the placements
Its a great support for uni students
They are reasonable.
Big and scary
Counselling is fantastic Tutors feedbacks are sometimes debatable. Some tutors feedback dont make sense
Great. I want to come back for higher education and go for my PhD here at Glasgow Caledonian University. The teachers support me a lot with course work and for personal growth
There are career development center, workshop and job fair held in the University campus
I like the seminar group work most. I don't like the traditional type of lecture
I like it. It's quite exciting. I join in the students union
I have got a single room in a 6bedroom flat. I have to share my kitchen, toilet and shower.
No idea about clubs but society works well.
Both are excillent
Overall it has been good except the disability advisor not being helpful. Ive made some great friends and am really enjoying the course. My placements have been good and the lecturers are helpful.
Nursing courses are split 50% university and 50% placement. This gives me the opportunity to use all the skills and kmowledge when I'm at placement and really hone these skills so I will be confident and competent when I qualify as a staff nurse. The university also has a careers service which sends out emails and jobs in the area. They run CV workshops and preparation for interviews as well.
I like that there are 'storyboards' to complete before class and then these topics are discussed more in depth in classes. These storyboards are usually videos, weblinks and chapters. These allow me to look into things before the class so I feel confident when feeding back to the class. I dont really have any dislikes.
Im part of the nursing society however dony get involved much as I stay outside the city.
Facilitaties are good, the library and the library staff are fantastic, they are always very helpful. Theres loads of places to eat on the campus. The gym is really good too loads of membership options.
I stay outside the city but when Im in the city its great, always things happening. However I like to be able to go away back out where its quiet.
Again part of the nursing society they are good they organise all types of event both acedemic and social.
Academic feedback is good. However the more kind of personal support is not good. When I started I seen a disability advisor who never sent my reasonable adjustment rm out to my lecturers. Not really sure if it has been done this trimester. I have never heard from the woman I seen again. Found it a bit disappointing as I feel let down, always had great support at college.
Really enjoying first year, living in halls has definitely been a good choice. Good range of modules in first year with option to choose more course specific modules in second year
Projects that relate to industry, guest lecturers and encouragement/help to secure placements/internships
Don't have one
Basic but okay.
Pretty good for a small uni
Very good night life. Lots to do all year round. Everything easily accessible.
Pretty good amount/range for size of the uni.
I have really enjoyed my time at GCU. I had my good and not so good moments, but I think university has taught me a lot of things about myself, my academic interests and my goals in life.
There is a careers office and several graduate employability workshops that take place. There are some volunteering opportunities within the university as well.
I like the fact that academic staff are easy to find if you need something. I do not like how lecture attendance is monitored by a swipe system, and how there is no lecture capture system in place.
I think they are doing their best to represent their students.
They are very modern and well maintained.
Glasgow has a unique vibe, people are very friendly and there's always a lot of things going on.
Amazing i am loving my subject. The uni has fanned the flames of my love for the topics. The people are great. The social lofe is great. I turned up on day 1 for my course k woing no one. Now i know most it is a wonderful place to study and be part of.
Uni provide us with specialist careers service, availble to all students and provide us with work experience for our futures to i crease employability. We also often have employers visit campus to talk to us
Most- placements and k owing I will jave a job. U i makes me feel welcome and part of its culture so is inclusive. Least I would say is exams but no one likes those
I love it. I am part of a society specificaly for my course and the union means so much yo us on so many levels it offers a space to go, a place to keet, a place to just be
Amazing 20 out of 10 they are that good always good food to eat and not expensive.
Glasgows miles better we are a happy welcoming city and this is shown by the amount of students who come and study and stay here. We are a wonderful moxinf bowl of cultures beliefs values and backgrounds.
The clubs and societies are varied and well put on for the students i wouls highly rec9mend.
We have our won team of help finwe are struggling as do all students caledonia are the best u i going for these and the feedback you recieve is second to none. I k ow i studied elsewhere before.
