It has been great testing within the subjects and my hockey but has been good to try and push myself also the socials have been fun and I have made lots of friends through them I can’t wait for next year
We have weeks where people will come in from outside of uni and give us the opportunity to do something we might not be able to at uni this week is called a careers week so it is purely based on giving us extra help
I just don’t like one of the subjects I find it hard and abit boring but my teacher is good at trying to get me to under stand and all of my other teachers are helpful aswell
The facilities are excellent I play hockey too and the pitch is such good quality having both good quality in lessons and throughout my sports is helping me to improve
It is really good we have a specialised support team aswell that isn’t the teachers and they will try to help us with anything we just have to book a meeting
So far it is so-so. Considering taking he 2nd year of my HND at another college that has better resources. However I would miss working with some of the key lecturers. They know their stuff with regard to e-commerce and has inspired me greatly. One is excellent and myself and others have learned many things from him since being here. Outstanding technology teachers and works hard to ensure we are fed with relevant information and they all support outside of formal sessions. Others, it's hit and miss. But that might be because of the tight timetabling with other courses and limited time to spend on tutor sessions outside of formal class time.
Mot so great on helping with employment places. The college uses Reed/NCF who are mostly geared up for Level 2 and Level 3 learners. The concept of He workplacement and support is completely alien to them
The best thing by far are the lecturers from Industry that are now working in education. Theyre fantastic, they know their stuff and can articulate and explain course material in depth and relate it to their own previous experience. Other lecturers tend to be young graduates without real world battle scars and tend to be only a few pages ahead of us in the course material.
It's linked to the Uni so it is pretty good.
Almost comical. They spent some money on new computers ready for the start of the HND but that is about it. The library is limited and most resources are what the lecturers create. In three cases this is outstanding work. However in the main it is pretty limited.
Loughborough is a uni town so it is pretty good on the bars and eatery front. Nightclubs etc... go to Leicester.
Again, it is a notable few who take time out. The college has just removed student counselling services unless you have a mental health certified problem. Progress tutors have limited resources (one per around 100 students) so they are busy.
