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
I am half way through my 1st year, as a mature student with two small children I feel like I have been supported when needed and encouraged always, I have accessed some of the help available and found them to be really accommodating, overall I've enjoyed every second and can't wait for the rest of my time here.
They have a careers dept that will help with any careers advice and in our course they make it really clear what you can go into and the route to take after graduating.
The lecturers are really down to earth and put things in a way that you can understand, they're always there for help and support and have been really supportive when asking about work and assignments
The students Union offer loads of great things, there's always someone there for advice if you need it.
Really good! I wish there was a pool but they have a selection of cafes and a cafeteria. You can get loads of different types of food, there's a gym and classes
There is a shopping centre just over the road easily walkable for students without transport and live in halls, short walk into Wrexham Town centre.
There are so many societies and sports groups to join! I was quite surprised for such a small university but they have such an inclusive attitude
The support is really good, they have so many point of contact, there is the ask centre and you can access help. For disabilities and counselling and extra support, help with IT and even the library staff are really accommodating.
I am a first year mature student. I knew Glyndwr uni was the uni for me from the first open day. Glyndwr has been welecoming and accommodating, especially in the inclusion department. I can not fault this department. The swift treatment has identified my additional learning need and put into place support to ensure i can complete my degree.
Glyndwr offers lots of guest speakers, keeps students up to date with employment and course/volunteering opportunities. The criminology degree offers study placements abroad (year 2).
The face to face lectures have been of excellent standard. I have one module online. I find getting into this a little bit more of a task than the other work. This is something i need ti work on. However, being a busy mum and self employed, i do find it handy i do not have to travel to uni for this lecture.
Very welcoming. Lots of information in regards to extra courses (many free) which help the studen gain insight and experience going towards degree and future employment.
Overall glyndwr's facilities are of a good standard. The main canteen can become very busy, however, this is to be expected. The variety of food is 10/10. The library facilities is also very good. I have had experience with the inclusion team and i can not fault the treatment and support i have received. Inclusion have been excellent.
Yes, glyndwr university is a 10 minute walk from Wrexham town centre. There is also a retail park within 2 minutes of the uni; equipped with dining facilities.
Glyndwr's very accommodating in promoting society's and sport activities. I have become a member if the criminology society. The society has organised help for the homless, gathering clothes and toiletries for those in need.
Tutors feedback has been brilliant. I particularly like the voice clips giving extra feedback. You are also encouraged to engage with the tutors about grades and feedback if you would like to question feedback. There has been information on counselling services and speakers popping in to lecture to inform of their services.
