Enjoyable, however I feel I could do better- I didn’t do much research before going to university and definitely am capable of more then what I am doing right now
They have a careers department, haven’t really used any of it yet
I like that I have multiple classes in a few days rather then one everyday so I don’t have to travel in everyday
They’re very active, always speaking to students and have various stalls at the university
Big library, gym, multiple eating options- only issue is it’s a VERY confusing building
Good location, good accessibility to the rest of the city
Not involved in any
My tutors are helpful
My university has been great. For accomodation there are a lot of places but they are really expensive and I cannot afford to buy them. I am from Gloucester and I am very far to attend my university classes. Other than that and teaching everything is great
They give us optional modules to do. And find us jobs which are related to our course we are doing.
I love the location I love the library I love the gym. What I find poor is the student hub are not that helpful. Also, teaching is quite poor compare to my previous experience. For example, when we get introduced to a new assignment the teacher just gives it out and do not explain the assignment step by step or clearly.
I do not have a lot of information about student unions. But I do know they are there and they are available to help us. We just need to move a leg and go to them
The library is very great. I love the way they have that first floor for group work, second for whispering and 3rd floor for absolute silent area. Students gets options to choose and where to study. The computers are great to work with. There are thousands of books to use and the gym is perfect even though it’s small but there aren’t many people attending therefore there is enough space for me to use.
Yes, the gym, the library and everything are so close and the underground station is like 2 minutes away which makes the university more accessible. Also, there are accomodations such as chapter 2 across the street. Therefore, our university is in a great location and accessible to most of things.
They are great, we have free small gym to use. It is small and some of the equipments are old. We do not have a lot of exercise machine for back but it’s durable. The fact that gym is free and we get free PT sessions and other classes such as boxing, MMA, tennis etc is a very great opportunity for students to stay healthy and attend this without any problem.
The teachers are alright. They do help to an extend level but not fully. Also the personal such as counselling are there. I’ve never attended their sessions therefore I do not know how helpful they are
it is very good and am very happy with everything the university have and provided for students and i would like to see more facilities being provided to make the university more accessible.
yes very much so
so far its good nothing bad to say , i enjoy my classes and class mates apart from friday lesson where people dont like to talk and makes you feel awkward,will be talking to student liason about this as we have group work and group does not communicate.
dont like the bussiness enviroment class as teacher talks too much
yes but very expensive shops.
good gym in the university but very small
This Uni is great!Forget about all the stereotypical negative comments. Support from lecturers is great, we have a preparation session before each assessment and we receive feedback after each assessment which helps me to improve my future assignments. Academic mentors and success coaches are always ready to help too! And hey we've got an Librarian committed to each school who can help you in picking the right/up to date books or journals.
Lecturers explain to our understanding
Yes...its about 1 to 2 minutes walk from the train station which is very convenient for me. Our library is close to our main building...just opposite the train station. There are many shops around where you can buy food etc.
I've had a great time, as I've got settled have become more involved with SU and societies. I've enjoyed permormances and workshops on related subjects in my field.
Great jobs through met temps and employability service.
The interactive nature, is great. The lectures are spread apart.
Great, approachable and fun.
Yes, great bus and train links. Local shops and restaurants.
Very varies and inclusive.
Good in terms of teaching quality, not so good in terms of social life. I'm a third-year transfer student and it's really hard socially to jump in at year 3 because everyone knows each other. And again, because there's absolutely no group work, it's very hard to strike up conversations with classmates who are literally just in and out for the lecture.
They do loads! I know of the careers department and their website, I know there's a career mentor program (and have joined it), work placements happen in the postgraduate year etc
I like that our lectures get recorded so I'm never afraid to miss anything and have it gone forever. I don't like the aversion to group work. I think being able to work in teams is a BIG transferrable skill that we are going to need in our professional lives, and the way the courses are taught doesn't nurture that skill at all.
I know I can go to my student representatives and who they are but haven't used the option yet. Don't know about facilities yet (although I know there is a gym, meditation room etc)
A bit run down in some places but they seem alright overall
YES. Very pleased with the uni's location. I had several different housing options close by as well as shops
It seems like there are a lot of societies. However, it also seems that some of the ones that where there at the beginning of semester have disappeared. I wanted to join the Psychology Society but when I went online to check/join, it's not there anymore. I've also joined the Boardgame Society but... nothing has come off it. I don't know who runs it, when events are happening, if it's even still active, nothing! Doesn't even have a facebook page as far as I can tell. I havn't explored the sports teams so I can't say if it's the same story there.
Absolutely excellent, never seen anything like it. I've never felt in better hands.
not bad, but could have been better. I would wish I had made more of an effort to socialise with my peers. Maybe gone out of my way to know about societies to get to know like-minded individuals
we have been offered work placements and receive emails about fairs and opportunities
I don't find the lecture presentations to be good. they don't make much sense when reviewing by myself. Some great lecturers though that are engaging
they are good. great lab
yes, there are many amenities nearby and housing is just across from campus
I was never made aware of socieities
The overall experience has been good, I have learnt a lot of new skills, grown as a person and tried new things I may never have gotten the opportunity to had I not gone to university.
There is a department that is on hand to help with CV writing, careers advise etc. The second years do a 2 week work placement organised by the head of department. There is also a lot of resources on the university website and advertised work.
What I like most is the class interaction and group discussions, they are very informative. I don't feel we are being taught enough on the practical elements of what we will be doing once we graduate, how what we are learning will be put into practice.
The student union are very approachable and willing to help to get things done. Each course has a rep that can take up issues with the union and that seems to work very well.
They are fair, improvements need to be made to the general facilities. There are more facilities at the other campus and general facilities seem to be in a better condition.
I live at home so travel over an hour to get in. The location of the university is close to amenities.
There is a large variety, but all the sports and most of the social events are held at the other campus which makes it difficult to take advantage of as that requires additional travel for most people at my campus.
Tutors feedback is very good and informative. Cannot comment on counselling as haven't had any.
my experience has been good and I have made couple of good friends here and the teachers are also helpful and nice.
i like the fact that its quite straight forward and that there are test every couple of weeks to help me revise and to assess what i need to improve on.
i stay at home so i don't really know about the housing but it seems to have a lot of student buildings around it and it takes me around 1hr 30 mins to get to uni from home. it's in a good spot and has a lot of restaurants and fast food places around. it is really close to the train station which is very convinient
