Didn't get much help for internship. Teaching quality of maximum subject is outstanding
The best aspects are lectures are quite responsive whenever you email them they get back at as soon as possible. At the moment I haven't seen any negative aspects.
The best thing is that I know know who to email if I have an issue. Some departments do not reply to emails which can be frustrating.
There are countless facilities to get to the uni which is amazing.
Staff and students are friendly and learning resources are easily accessible through the university's VLE (Virtual Learning Environment) student portal and the library. Students are able to study in lectures that are helpful for them and they can study that same lecture in their own time, especially if there is something that they want to look at again. The workload can be a lot, but with the proper time management and priority mindset, students can be able to get their assignments done before the deadline. Also, the university offers lots of opportunities such as careers and clubs/societies for students to apply and join. The timetable can differ, depending on the student's selected course. Lectures may start in the morning (e.g. 9am) and can finish late in the evening (e.g. 8pm). Students will need to adapt to this environment for the next few years. It is all part of uni life, especially when you begin as first year.
Course is very challenging, but it can be fun also. As I said in my previous statement, regarding workload, it is a lot to do, but with the proper time management and priority mindset, the works can be done quickly and easily with no problem.
there is no involvment at all, they make the bare minimum effort to connect the students, im waiting until the last minute to go back to halls because im dreading it so much, the lectures are so isolating and the teachers dont know who you are
theres no options for online lectures, which as a student with adhd i find very hard to sit through 2 hour lectures and still keep my full attention and take good quality knowledge away from the lectures
the halls are decent, the nicer “superior” flats are given priority to first year students which is the only thing i’d disagree with
Best: 1. Amazing location (Central London) 2. Moderate tuition fee compared to other institutions. 3. Least expensive student accommodation as per location. 4. Breakfast and lunch meal prices being slashed to cope with Cost-of-Living crisis. 5. State of the art Laboratories. (I'm making organic solar cells for my dissertation, and the labs have all the equipment needed for fabrication and characterization such as Spin coaters, Evaporators, Glove boxes, Solar Simulator, Spectrophotometer etc.) 6. Limited student capacity (between 20-50 per module) for engineering courses. This means teachers can provide more attention to the students and help clear their individual doubts. Overall, the university feels really modern with the automatic systems, and high-performance PCs, including iMacs, located in library. University has disability access and support everywhere on campus, which is a good thing in general. Everyone at the university including professors, students, and staff have a kind and friendly nature. Worst: 1. One of my module leaders couldn't deliver his module very well. There aren't other bad experiences that I have yet encountered as I have completed only my first semester at the university. I wish the university had an outdoor field to play sports like Tennis, football, cricket etc. (hence, the four stars for the 'Facility')
One of my modules felt really useless to study as the lab work contained high level of programming which none of classmates or I could properly understand. The course felt rushed. The professor teaching the theoretical aspect of the same module had a poor delivery and wasn't engaging enough. Every other module, and their respective module leaders were outstanding. (I had a total of four modules in for semester 1.)
Overall, the accommodations were great for the cost. The shared spaces were well-equipped with amenities like room and space heaters, a microwave, kettle, oven, electric stove, bathtub, and two bathrooms for six flatmates. The individual rooms were a decent size and had private doors. Maintenance requests were promptly addressed. The common building being the best place to hangout, with its gaming consoles, pool table, foosball, arcade machine, and piano. However, there were a few areas for improvement such as adding full-size dress up mirrors in the rooms and updating the water taps and sinks to feel less outdated.
the location is good with more than adequate transportation. I love going for lectures and most lectures are accommodating
MSC business project management is intense, it requires time and commitment but I enjoy every bit of the experience
Great communication between staff and students. New facilities (library) Keen to engage in events.
Lecturer's are flexible around inconveniences such as train strikes offering lectures online which are delivered interactively where possible. Tutors and staff offer appointments and often remind students that their support is available - appointments are easy to book and cancel/rearrange on LSBU account.
I think it will be really helpful to get more help with the living expenses.
That was in my university student life centre.
How can I take my placement?
