Overall I have been pleased with the effort my university put in to make the best of a bad year. I feel as though my learning has most definitely been compromised through online learning but this is not the fault of the university or lecturers as they did as much as they could. I think the amount we paid for this education (£9250) is extortionate and the fact the students have not been reimbursed for at least a portion of this, is an absolute joke but once again this may not be the fault of the university. I think this like many other things boils down to our “government”.

My experience overall has been good, although being in the midst of a pandemic, the lecturers and staff seem very helpful and eager to give the same level of classes whether it be from home or in a lecture theatre. All students need to give the lectures a great amount of recognition for the work they have done this year.

In my second year at university. The online learning has made life easier. This is because the pre recorded lectures mean that you can watch the lectures multiple times which are useful for exam preparations. However the online tutorials aren’t the same as face to face learning which I prefer

I was full of doubt when I began my course but good guidance from my personal tutor built my confidence. In my first year of the course, the lecturers were very helpful but their performances declined as the academic semesters went by. I began to utilise the other resources like online library, lecture notes, software and others. I have been very confident and I have learnt great skills on how to independently study and only ask relevant questions on the online platform provided. In a nutshell, I am satisfied with the academic support provided by the university

It’s been okay, definitely some bumps in the road especially in semester one with lectures being stubborn about releasing material and how they taught the class even if it wasn’t effective and things like class tests causing problems about collusion but on the whole it’s been fine. I’ve gotten through it but it could’ve been better for sure

Overall my uni experience has been really good however I did prefer semester 1 to semester 2 as in the first semester we got more face to face classes but I do understand with the current situation they're doing their best.

Heriot watt university is the best university. the professors are very kind, patient and clarity your doubts without hesitating. almost every professor who works here has great research output. the facilities are also amazing, with great infrastructure especially the Edinburgh campus almost all academic buildings are interconnected which will be very helpful if you are coming from a tropical country, as you can get rid of cold and rain. the connecting facilities like transport are also very good. last but not least the placements division here is very helpful, I got a work placement opportunity with the help of my placements coordinator.

I dont feel like its been a good year, i have barely learned anything with it being online, and i am barely passing my courses because theyre not as engaging. I would like some compensation due to the circumstances but i cannot see that happening

Awful. Worst thing that ever happened to me. I hate it more than absolutely anything. The lecturers don't care about you and just want a pay check. Killed any passion I had for it. I wanted to like it but I just can't pretend anymore.
