Fantastic love it, a great places where I have met so many people Has been hard with the work but definitely pays off and has been a great experience living in halls and a student house
Really good sports facilities and also media centre is good
Very good lots of support is provided
Uni is slightly out of the student area but not a bad location and is in a nice area
Good variety seems a lot to do
Most that it’s all essay based and assessments so no exams Least that the lecture content sometimes doesn’t always seem relevant
They encourage placements which is good
I really enjoy being at Leeds Trinity. It's a very good supportive Uni. There are lots of extra curricular activities and there is always something going on out of uni. I would highly recommend it.
Very good, there is lots of support available.
Really good, very easy to contact.
Yes I walk to the Uni and it's easy to get buses and trains nearby.
Very good! Lots of options!
Friendly and approachable
There are lots of people to talk to about placements and careers. It's easy to get advice and support.
Highly recommend this university. The admissions dept needs a lot of work to improve, but the teaching staff are positive, very capable and come across as decent, honest people.
Very good - modern, very good library and IT facilities
Fairly limited. Societies exist but seem inactive.
Fairly easy to access by bus/train
Don't have time to participate
Lecturers are knowledgeable and experienced - able to connect theory with practice very well
Big focus on this
In one word, fantastic! Because the university is quite small, it’s like we’re one big community, it’s lovely really. I’m glad I chose to come to this university
I can’t fault them at all!
Anything you need help with, there will always be someone there
Fantastic. Within your first week your well acquainted with who and what is represented. There’s always a helping hand about (easily spotted by their T-shirts)
Absolutely! It feels like you’re in the countryside because you’re surrounded by greenery, but less than a miles walk away is the town centre which has places to eat and shop. What’s extra great is that there’s a uni bus which runs every 5 minutes that takes you there - plus it’s free!
There is a large amount of sports clubs for both men and women, and an interesting selection of societies (Disney, choir etc). However the amount of societies is quite small
I like how interactive my course is, in terms of both how much we do and how available the staff are to help. I don’t like the amount of work there is in each session but what can you do about that
There are workshops available pretty much every week to help you better skills such as writing, or touching up your cv. There is a careers office which you can’t miss. The staff are super friendly and keep in touch with reminders via email, and social media so that opportunities are never missed. Every individual on every course is required to complete a few weeks of work placement towards the end of every academic year.
Outstanding, really helpful and just an amazing journey. I highly recommend this university to anyone and I would just like to add that whoever comes here will be looked after
Unreal, can’t fault them
I love eveything about it, can’t fault anything
After my first term at university, I can honestly say that it has exceeded my expectations! I have found that everyone has been so welcoming and I know who to go to if I have a problem e.g. stress/time management etc and there would be so many people willing to help me.
My university’s facilities are excellent. Everything is well kept and clean and there are many sports facilities that I really enjoy using! For example, there is a gym, an Astro turf, sports hall and fields.
The support offered by the university is definitely a 10/10! Lecturers and tutors always give detailed feedback about the positives in your work and how you can improve to be better next time! They ensure that every student is on track with their work and no one is struggling. I personally haven’t used counselling but I have heard very positive things from people who have had counselling at university! They have all said that their councillors are very supportive and will listen to you no matter how big or small the problem!
The students union is excellent! All of the students are very friendly and welcoming.
Yes my accommodation is on the university campus so I could not be any closer to my lectures! This is very handy as it means I don’t have to worry about cancelled public transport or travelling to and from university in bad weather.
There are a wide range of societies and sports that are available to all students. I have found that the sports team that I am in are all very welcoming and friendly! At Leeds Trinity University, there are a wide range of sports and societies such as the Disney society, football, dance, cheerleading, swimming, netball and so much more!!
I really like how all of my lecturers are very enthusiastic about their subject and can tell that they want every single student to do their best. It is obvious that they believe in everyone and train them up to be the best primary school teacher possible!
My uni ensures that every student on every course has work placements throughout their time at University. This will enable them to put their placements on their CV, increasing their chances of getting a job post graduation.
Loved it for the most part. As a mature student it’s been good as I don’t feel like I don’t fit in. I would love the change the food available though as there’s very little healthy eating options available.
Lecturers have given amazing amount of support and help. Not used any other support within the uni so can’t comment on anything else.
Yes, walking distance to train station, supermarkets, local shops and pubs
Pretty good although I haven’t used or participated in any so can’t give much detail
Dislike most - students who turn up to lectures and sit talking the whole way through. It’s rude and annoying to those who want to learn and disrespect to the lecturers. The uni doesn’t do much about these people as they are worried they will leave/drop out. Best thing - small uni so all lecturers know you by your name and are always available to give help and support.
Placement on level 4 and 5 which is great although the placement team leaves a lot to be desired. Good placements available if you look for them yourself
I have loved it! I would not have chosen ANYWHERE ELSE to go to uni. I love how there is a nice community feel at Trinity which is one benefit of a smaller uni!
We have good facilities in my opinion and they are always very comprehensive and helpful.
The support offered in all areas of student life is amazing here
I think they do their very best to represent everyone for such a small uni, however, I do not like the fact that I have to pay card in their facilities as it is not how I budget and I don't think that it should be the only option, especially at the student bar.
It is very good in terms of distance to my accommodation. It is quite far away from Leeds city centre and from the nearest supermarket, but the shuttle bus makes life so much easier. It is completely free and takes me to wherever I need to go - the train station, the supermarket and the nearest doctors surgery
There is a nice variety of sports though I think that attention is placed on the larger clubs too much. There are a lot of smaller societies and sports clubs which could use some more attention!
I love the freedom I have in my course, as it is a research degree. However I think more can be done to integrate postgraduate students into the community of the uni and that the space we use for research could be improved and facilitated better
We have the MyFuture team who assist with reading CVs for placement and postgraduate jobs. There is always a list of current vacancies outside the office for us to look at and they are always very helpful in finding students what they want.
It has been amazing. I've managed to have 2 years as course rep on my course and offered many different opportunities. Plus met the best people I could do on the course and in halls.
They are excellent.
It is really good.
It is really good. You have everyone you need and they are very helpful.
Yeah it's in a great location. With Uni right on campus and Horsforth town just a shuttle bus ride away.
The variety is really good. You go from Disney Society to Sober society. There are plenty of sports clubs available too.
I hate the least that we have visiting lectures teaching us but I like that we have had a range of modules on the course.
We go on placements in first and second year, block placements and get given tasks we have to conplete whilst on placement.
Very good experience, i enjoy the university and what it has to offer. The courses are good and the lecturers are helpful and informative. Placement team is very good.
University has good facilities
It's in a decent location, but for commuting it is a little out of reach.
I like the the essays and assignments. Sometimes the rooms arwnt the best
