Because tutors are very supportive
I like because it’s adaptable to my needs I can access online to catch up
When the IT systems went down it made things in the course difficult like my workshop lessons as my tutor was teaching virtually so he couldn’t contact us at all.
There needs to be more contact between tutors and students as to me it feels there is a form of a disconnect at the moment.
The facilities are very personal that look forward to using more
At the moment I’m re sitting my GCSE Maths and yet I have no teacher and my exams are in 7 weeks. Two of those weeks are the Easter holidays
The course is great but some of the products we have to use are really bad
Staff are supportive and friendly
Teaching could be better however the overall course is good
Brilliant and I really enjoy it but little things like locker would be help full. The course can be really tailor to you and you take what you want from everything offered. would recommend
good rooms and lots of equipment needed. Would like lockers
good that an acting degree is practical and not loads of unnecessary essays. would like a different method of sharing work other then google drive / classroom or get help learning how to use it
So far I am about 2 and a half years through my college life and have already expressed to my tutors that I am dreading finishing my course. The college has made me strive to learn and achieve through challenges faced throughout my time at the college and made the thought of learning and expanding my knowledge fun and exciting. The college makes me not only want to achieve in my academic studies but makes me want to achieve in and challenge faced in my student life.
The facilities on and around the campus give the best possible resources for me to achieve in my chosen subject, all areas are clean and of great use areas such as a quiet study area and also a social area available to buy food and beverages as well as socialise with new people.
The tutors never fail to help me when I'm finding a task particularly hard with emails being replied to in fast time and them even taking time out of my day to sit down and talk through the challenge, seeing how much effort and time the tutors put into me makes me aim to be the best student I can be and achieve to my full potential. Outside of the academic setting, the college has multiple counselling and resources available for any problems within my personal life, this encourages me to not only work to be my best within the college but also makes me work and understand how to manage my personal life as well.
The course is taught in a relaxed and friendly environment that never fails to make me feel at ease no matter what mood I turn up in. The course has a mix of teaching styles such as visual, practical and audible which even if you don't fully understand what learning style is best for you,m the course is run in a that gives you the best possible chance to learn and succeed. The balance between the fun and relaxed atmosphere of the work environment with the work assigned is challenging enough to make me strive to achieve without confusing or overwhelming me. Even with the best possible methods to learn, if I do find myself still misunderstanding certain aspects of the lecture taught, all information is put onto google classroom, giving me enough time to catch up or revise certain areas. Also, the tutors never fail to spend additional time with the student to help them understand and succeed in any given task.
Aspects of the course throughout all the years required me to go out and work with real people or get work experience within a certain sector that I wish to proceed in. If any student fails to find any of these, the tutors never fail to aid in the search for such opportunities. Also, all student get regular emails of work experience opportunities as well as the opportunity to gain additional coaching qualifications away from the course which as a result will improve our knowledge and the chance of employability.
Great had minimal issues with the course and tutors. The college is always trying to improve the equipment and keep everything working. The new building is close to transport links and close to get too
Tutors - excellent Personal - from tutors great college unknown
Most - how friendly and helpful the tutors are Least- Organization and communication can be lacking
Modules based around commercial industry
I have enjoyed it however it has been particularly challenging with deadlines. In the future, I'd definitely put aside more time to read through the briefings and better my work.
They're fine, the IT department are slow to update hardware/software however.
Very good and responsive.
I like most being able to work on something I personally have a connection with. I least like the uncomfy chairs in the classroom.
They provide multiple opportunities at games' events to showcase our work.
