It’s very exciting and sure I have work but you will never get bored from university as you can meet lots of people and know them and go out with them and have loads of fun with your mates
For my course it’s all about preparation for the career.
It’s really good as are always trying to keep everyone satisfied
They’re great but my favourite is water filters
The accommodation is within the campus so it’s close to all my lectures. However the campus is located outside the city so you will have to take the bus to go for shopping. Nevertheless there is some shops within the campus but some prefer the shops in the city centre.
There are so many different societies and sports you can join its a nice overwhelming experience
The university in general is always supportive they have the base which helping center regarding students question.
I love it I want to experience more of it. The facilities, gym, sports, clubs, everything is great and natural beauty is amazing. Its a peaceful place to study here and progress as this is not some metropoliton city where you can party all the time. Its a safe city with alot of time to study hard.
Its good, should be more lectures available to us.
No taught courses
Its not that great
Yes its perfect to my house location
Its great I ma a member of 2 socieites and many sports team
I dont like the personal counselling I need support in my fincances
It's a nice experience. I love teaching and learning new stuff every day. There are many resources to avoid feeling bored. However, some of these activities might not be research-related.
It depends. I think it works after you finish your program, but you're no longer here when it happens.
I like been challenged. I don't like when nobody provides me with feedback about my progress. Sometimes I feel I'm just being used to pay someone else hours and that I'll not receive any special treatment unless I pay these hours.
I do not know exactly what they do
It's OK. But I don't understand what I should consider as support. I have some meetings I have to report. Is that support? Do you mean someone I can contact at any time? For academic purposes, I'm dependent on my tutors' availability. For personal support, there must be more constant support.
I really enjoy the life here as the uni is quite modern in terms of the equipments and the flexibility. There are quite a lot support from the uni provided to international students for us to better settled down to uni life. My supervisors are excellent and very nice. I really appreciate myself because of my choice of coming here.
The modules are quite useful in terms of the relevance of our first years work. However, the arrangement of the module could be more flexible.
Though I didn't particularly like Lancaster at first, I learnt to stick to it and approach things in a more positive and open mindset. As soon as I decided to really push myself to engage with the range of opportunities the University presents its students, my entire experience changed, and I felt included! Finding the right people, discovering the area, and really taking the time to invest yourself in the course you chose is something I found to be key to the Lancaster experience.
Least – very little contact hours Most – the freedom to research what aspects of the course really interest you
It’s been great. Met so many people through various opportunities/ societies, working, volunteering. College system is definitely an asset. Campus has good facilities and everything you need
Lots of effort including careers modules, careers service are very present and active
Like - practicals, stressful but learn a lot Workshops seem a bit pointless at times and like they don’t know what to do with this time
Not great, not representative, in general most people don’t like them
Very good, no complaints, seem to listen to student requests e.g. demand for more water fountains, took a while but have increased amount. Library could do with more toilets
It’s quite far from the town but has everything you need on campus
Feels like there’s a lot and sports are popular, other societies struggle with retaining a consistent membership
For this course good, we have tutors and dissertation supervisors who are helpful. Counselling is good but there’s long waiting lists
Excellent! Been here 7 years for BA, MA, and PhD and couldn't ask for anything more. Brilliant facilities, friendly staff, and a good collegial work environment.
Excellents careers dept allowing students to practice interview skills, etc. Also has Lancaster Award to encourage students to do extra-curricular activities.
Friendly staff, well-structured, clear aims.
Around 200 societies - good!
Overall, really good, everything I expected.
Lots of opportunities, placements.
What you expect, normally on time, seminars are good size.
Not very open about plans, more focused on money.
Everything you could need
20min bus ride but frequent stops and one in uni.
Welcoming, some are free, do need membership for sports.
actively find feedback
So far I've really enjoyed uni, I especially like the collegiate system as it gives a sense of community.
Loads of opportunities e.g. lancaster award
Most lectures are good, and they put up recordings.
They are trying to close the SU club :(
Facilities are good
Slightly outside of town
Don't do sport but there seems to be lots to do
Haven't met my tutor yet.
So far university has been a learning curve in living independently.
Everyday I receive an e-mail about job/work experience offers.
Cannot find fault
Not great. They decided to sell sugar (the club) without a student vote.
Good - but the gym should be cheaper, especially for students from lower income.
Phenomenal in teaching and counselling - support was always there when needed.
