So far so good. I'm a mature student that's come from an access course so Im finding the content accessible and I'm not having to adjust to leaving home ect. But I really enjoy the uni and would definitely recommend it.
2 accredited work placements in year 1 & 2. Careers department that has current job opportunities and helps with skills. Employability fairs
Enjoy the content but some lectures are 3 hours long and it's hard to concentrate for that long
As a mature student it doesn't particularly interested me but it looks good and active.
Library is good but limited study spaces available during busy times.
I've always lived in Leeds so I'm bias but I love it here
All my tutors are really approachable and helpful. The disability services are great too
So far feel very supported in dome parts of the course and some lectures are very supportive and feel that I am able to go and talk to them regarding anything whether it relates to the course or not. However some are less supportive and communication is not the strongest as we often get mixed messages.
Very helpful regarding placements and dedicated team to find placements for PGCE pupils. Very keen to make sure we are supported after university.
Very depended on who you have for lectures to know what you will be taught, lectures often let you know on the day that the lecture is not on. Otherwise, like when they give you practical ideas for the classroom.
Not involved as not on site a lot.
Very clean and always computers available
No idea live at home
Not had any yet
I have loved my university experience so far and it was everything I expected and I am so glad I came to this university. I hope it will only get better and I am excited for next year.
My university is amazing in this department in my opinion. They have a website and office just for employability. They are amazing in helping work placements from helping to check your first cv to sending you work placements that they think suit you.
The thing I like most about my course is that all the books and resources are available online and everything has a set plan for the year and is very organised. There is nothing I don't like about my course, I feel like it is best suited for me.
I try to get involved however I work part time as a supervisor and my job has stopped me from getting involved but I hope to get involved next year.
Very modern, ensuite bedrooms in a flat of 6 people
The city life is everything I expected it to be. Very busy and has a good night life.
There is a society and club for everything you could imagine.
The student support provided by my university is very good, I know where to go if I have a financial problem or an educational problem.
Overall it has been a very relaxing experience, however it’s only my first year so I suspect it will get much harder. I didn’t think I wanted to go straight into education after A levels but I’m glad I did as I have met so many great people and I’m really enjoying my course
We do placements in every year and they often hold conferences about careers
It’s very independent which I like however you do have the option to get help in many ways. I don’t have any negatives
I don’t get involved however I know that it is very good. I don’t have the time really to get involved I normally stay in or go home
Very modern and clean.
Very good and always clean
It’s a quiet city however there are some hot spots where you can go out and enjoy it. It’s also right next to Leeds city centre
I am not in any personally
Very good they are always asking if you need help
It's good, and I enjoy the course. The campus, despite being small, I sometimes find navigating a little difficult, and I've struggled fitting in due to my inability to talk to new people.
Every course has mandatory placement first and second year, which is beneficial for getting into the industry, however sometimes the help provided isn't exactly what I need.
There is a good mix between practical elements and standard lectures. The majority of the staff are approachable and willing to help where they can.
I'm personally not that involved due to not being able to function well in social situation and being anxious about talking to people I know. The student shop is useful however.
It is what I expected for the price. The room is larger than expected but is often cold, so I have to wear a lot of layers inside. I live at the top and there is no elevator but it's manageable. Things seems to break more than expected and things get stolen, but that's the fault of the students most of the time and not the university. It's kept clean in the corridors and bathrooms. The kitchen is sometimes messy, but again, to students fault.
They are good. I find them all usable and in decent shape.
The campus is a bit out of the city but it's easy to get to, and I enjoy having easy access to Leeds.
I don't know as I haven't jointed any.
The academic support is good, with most staff willing to help. For personal support, I am not yet comfortable with anybody to speak to them about my personal issues.
It has been one of the best experiences that I have had at a place of education. This is strongly due to the whole social aspect of uni and the bonds created over courses and more adult things than just gossip and being forced into the same place. This is also similar in my accommodation. Due to where I'm staying, this has made the whole experience even better, because the people I live with are compassionate, friendly and inviting
In 3rd semester of 1st and 2nd year on my course, we have a months placement, which encourages the students to get involved in the industry, which can be aided by the Placement team, to further help this scenario act out.
Very independent and student based. This is both a plus and a negative. On the positive side, being independent allows me to go at my own paces. However the independence can also be a burden as I forget about task due to not being reminded about them.
The Students' Union is very handy and approachable for the students of the uni, and personally I think that its a great addition/necessity for the university to make it more social with events and societies.
My accommodation is ideal due to the nature of shared flats, with in my opinion, the right amount of people to be social, but not too crowded. Also, having an en-suite as well as living in self catered accommodation allows for independence, which I really like
They are very good, with access to industrial equipment, and high tech computers. However, due to the nature of the course I'm doing, I would prefer all the software that I use in my classes to be installed on all the computers rather than a select few.
City life is very lively, however is quite a commute to get their, due to the location of my uni. But, with the times that I have gone into the city, it was very lively, and exciting
The societies that I have joined haven't actually done anything yet, so I cant comment on this. However I know the ones that my friends are in, they have commented that they're really good.
The support from an academic standpoint is really good, as our lecturers are very approachable and friendly. Similarly, these lecturers can be approached for personal problems, as well as the counselling service that the uni offers
3 years have flown by, I have been well supported and there has been good advice not only with work but moving away from home, money, part time jobs and balancing everything.
employability talks every 2 weeks, placement team always available, adverts for jobs and placements. graduate team send you specific roles for you
lectures are often followed by seminars or practical's which helps me understand the topic. lectures aren't always focused on the assignment but provide additional information, because we don't have exams I wish those lectures were more assignment focused
amazing! so welcoming
pretty good there is always a space in the library which students at other universities complain about
Leeds is so great I am looking for graduate jobs here
part of the netball team and its inclusive and welcoming for all abilities
tutors and the feedback given is always good and on time, however counselling regarding mental health is so hard to book sessions as they are always busy
My overall experience has been great so far, I've made good friends and I'm getting along really well with the course. The tutors are great and I get along with the majority of the people that are on my course and those that are living in my hall.
they will provide help when it comes to improving your CV, looking for jobs and so on at the MyFuture area.
they're not as practical as I'd thought it be so far, that and a couple of the teachers can be a little patronising at times.
I don't personally get involved as I have other personal matters that take up too much of my time
I really enjoy it so far, there has been a couple of small issues but they have since been resolved. Besides from that everything is fine
I love it! I know where everything is and there's a lot to do.
I haven't had personal help with counselling and so on but the help I get from the library and the tutors are brilliant, telling/showing me everything I need to know about what I have to do.
It has been very good. If I was to speak to future students, I would tell them to make the most of it and ensure that they do what makes them happy. I would also encourage them to get involved with any volunteering experiences you may be given and try your best!
They have career advisors and make sure all students carry out placements.
I like how helpful the lecturers are if you’re struggling they’re always available to help you. However what I like least is the lack of facilities
It’s very good.
Not very good.
The city life is very good there’s always things for students to do at cheap prices.
Very good. They are very understanding and only want the best for you.
it has been great the student life here is very lively but the best time you will have and you will receive the best support for all your needs either in a sport or academically
They have an amazing team which help you set your cv out correctly and also help you find placements and part time jobs
i like the way that their is small classes and lectures and we get relevant info to the unit. One of the units i feel doesn't really relate to the course
Very good provide excellent support and have a variety of society and clubs for everyone
Very nice there is everything there what is needed
amazing provide support for all levels and support if you go out on injury
