Well I wish I had gone somewhere else. 4 years of being laughed at and I just don't have the skills to be a graphic designer. Im planning on studying elsewhere to regain my confidence
They do not, I don't know anyone that actually did a placement. the tutors just didn't bother although it said in the modules we were supposed to
Well none of the lecturers have degrees in the subject they are teaching. its have a go and we will take a look mentality. students end up designing for the lecturers taste for fear of being sweared at by the lecturers swear and slag off other students and staff. Its actually really toxic with very little design taught. you would be better off doing work experience.
Student Union is great. they really are the only great thing about the uni
Accommodation is fine, but the area is poor. a lot of poverty
Oh wow, its an old victorian hospital that's often too hot or too cold. the roof leaks, the windows leak. the college up the road has more up to date tech than us. the art school is just forgotten about. the 'head of the art school' only cared about fine art, even funded trips for them. he never came into our class computers are old, chairs and tables, old. they don't care about Regent street
Location is fine, train and bus links.
there are plenty of sports to choose from, they really want more players
Tutors don't care, it's a sausage factory. one in one out. the Uni support services themselves are second to none but its probably the staffs fault your having to use them.
i'm enjoying it alot and think im managing well with the work load and that i feel suported by my teachers the social life is ok and there is alot of opertunities to meet people
they do alot such as a careers section and lots of emails about jobs and the corse focuses on making us employable as possible
i like how much the teachers care for you and are ready to help you i dislike the focus on geting jobs after as it can be detressing for me as im disabled and jobs can feel difficult to get
pretty good representation and good facilities
very good though there isnt easily accessible water stations
yeah its good we are close to super markets and cafes and its not to long to drive from home to uni
theres alot of societies though there is some areas missing such as certain sports or clubs
good im suported well my the disability team and my teachers
Rubbish dont go to glyndwr. Not supportive and most degrees not suitable for future employment. Facilities poor and dont help you find vocational experience.
It doesnt. Very poor support for students
Nothing most Lecturesrs unsupportive. Resigned before they were sacked
Old and tired
Very poor and unsupportive
Overall my experience at university has been mixed at first I was nervous about fitting in and making new friends but now I feel happy at uni and I am still enjoy my time here
The best thing is the tutors always have time for the students and do thier best to help with the work we are given
I think the student union could be improved on by trying to get more people to try and attend more events
The facilities at the uni are fantastic
The university is in a good place its not to far from supermarkets and town
There are a good variety of sports and societies
The support from the uni is fantastic
I’ve enjoyed it thoroughly, I enjoy everything I’ve learnt and experienced. The societies need small changes but overall it’s very good. I look forward to my next year
I don’t feel they do
The best thing is no exams and how interesting the lectures can be. The lack of contact time can be an issue
They lack in promoting events and difficulty organising interesting events
Yes it’s quite close to everything the city/town amenities
Need more sports
Open door policy, and decent counselling
I've really enjoyed my time here and am really looking forward to the future. The lecturers have supported me so much and I am so passionate about my course. I can't wait to see what happens next.
We have a sort of career week. This is where speakers come in from different parts of the professional industry and talk to you. There's a lot of opportunity to develop employment.
I get a mixture of theoretical and practical teaching, which is great! The lecturers are really understanding and help you understand a great deal.
The student union takes everyone's opinions and represents the students properly. The facility's are amazing.
They're very good. They're very well managed. However the Terry Hands studio could use a bit more funding.
Yes. It's very close to the university and it's close to local shops. It's also a very short distance from the town.
There could be more societies.
The tutors are very good. The feedback is also good, offering verbal and theoretical feedback. However in student accommodation, there needs to me more mention of mental health. Particularly where to go if you need help or support.
I have found it difficult, but made great friends and loved it overall. It was worth it and I’ve learned so much. The uni has plans to be improving further over next few years, so can only get better.
Careers advice department at uni, who are available for 1-1’s and guidance about future options and starting businesses. Every module at every level studied in uni has a criteria of how it is applicable to future jobs and career paths, through skills learned. Many courses have annual placements of at least 4-5 weeks
Most: the additional help offered on moodle for extra reading and research. Least: tutors aren’t allowed to reply to emails on weekends or during holidays.
They get thoroughly involved in advertising and promoting good causes, events and opportunities for students. They want to help where they can and they’re approachable.
Study spaces are incredible - quiet, colourful and adaptable. Majority of classrooms are good standard (some newer than others). Library is great!
Yes 10 min walk into town centre, easy access to bus and train station, supermarkets right next to it.
Huge variety of sports and societies - always things going on and enough to keep everyone busy.
Academically, the support offered is good (unless a weekend or holiday). Pastorally, I wouldn’t know where to go if I needed help - nobody has told me or shown me.
Very good apart from the financial burden which has almost had me leaving and getting a full time job on a few occasions. There is too much pressure financiall
Quite a lot of help available
Lectures are only twice per week there should be more.
Overall a decent university, if you are mostly there for the degree. Need more social events for students and possible drop in counselling services. I do believe some courses could be managed better
It definitely needs more events for students to socialise
Fairly good yes
University had been one of the best experiences, however the third year the work load is significantly higher Accommodation initially I was put in a noisy flat but then changed which helped me to concentrate on work, this should of been delt with quicker as I was put with 6 people who knew eachother all 2/1 year Teachers always support us as students Overall I will miss my uni experience
By helping us build a portfolio and pushing us to create work to a high standard
It is practical and everyday is different and we are free to experiment, work balance could be improved
Student union offers events as well as a bar and food which also provides support if needed but it is only located on main campus
For me the art block has every needed
Location is 5-10 minute walk from uni and also is close to shops, couldn’t be located better really
There are many varieties to shoes one but I think a couple more could be added to suit certain courses
Tutors are very helpful and feedback is always considered
