For me, it was the quality of education that really let me down this year, it took a hinderance to my grades and I felt like this academic year wasn't a true reflection of my capabilities. If I was able to visit the campus and use the facilities there as well as experience in-person teaching, then my score would have drastically improved.
It was entirely online this year, and I was only satisfied with 3 of my modules and how they were taught. The other 3 of my modules were either poorly taught or I could not find the correct resources to support me to do complete the module to the fullest of my ability.
The equipment rental is very generous, the library offer free laptop PCs and books for students that need them.
There are many resources on the personal portal that is to do with one's wellbeing.
NTU has been very supportive and understanding of my depleting mental health in the midst of this pandemic and military coup, giving students one on one tutorials with tutors to bring up issues and better our online student experience. The student support has been great, considering I'm not registered to the NHS. However, my course is very field and practical-based, so it would be nice to have international uni fees a bit cheaper when almost everything is delivered online.
NTU is very employability focused and helping us build up our skills from the first year.
My lecturers have been very supportive with making sure I'm included since I'm stuck in Myanmar doing first year online.
I wouldn't know but I'm hoping to fly to the UK for second year.
My experience has been good overall in terms of fun and enjoyment. The studying is hard as it’s online and it’s hard to motivate myself as i’m doing all my learning in the same room i sleep in, so there’s not a lot of change of scenery.
Difficult to learn sometimes with seminars being online, hard to ask questions and get appropriate help when needed. But they online lectures are good as you can pause them and do them whenever you want.
Communication and involvement of my lecturers is amazing- they are all extremely interested in their field and are very supportive and understanding with students. Access to resources and support is easy and the information provided to help with my employability has been clear. When on campus the environment is fun and enjoyable. However, doing everything online has meant that the full experience of the course was removed which has made it a lot less enjoyable. This has meant that this year has been more about sticking it out till next year instead of enjoying the course.
Employability online provided you with information and short courses to help find employers and work experience. It is really easy to access and takes little time each week. Access to the employability team and the support they give is very easy as well.
Initial blended learning then completely online.
The library and study areas in each building are really good. I haven't been able to expertise equipment specific to my course yet.
Content communication with the university regarding this. Support is provided in a number of ways: webinars, one to one meetings, email, phone call, group sessions.
Had we been in person, I believe the experience would have been much better. Online classes are unsuitable for universities comfortable with in person teachings.
There’s emails that are sent out regularly regarding improving employment prospects ut nothing personalised and no individual conversations.
The online format this year has been of mixed quality. Some lecturers have been engaging and professional whilst others have been completely unprofessional and others completely unsupportive.
The in-person facilities are great, lots of places for both silent and spoken study.
As somebody who needed support for my mental health, it was horrible. I was told I needed a letter from my doctor so I went to the on campus doctor who told me that wouldn’t be necessary and I should just get the support so it was a vicious circle.
I have felt very alone during the year not only education wise but also social wise, I ended up staying at home for 2nd term honestly because I was terrified to come back. Although 3 rd term has been great I feel that my university could have provided more accessible support to have made my start easier
I actually think trent is great. People complain about the lack of support, which is fair, but those people absolutely do not work hard enough. I've been given more than enough content to be successful, and I get firsts consistently
Everything is kind of rubbish this year because of COVID so we haven't been able to use a lot of university facilities or see lecturers face to face, but that's not the university's fault.
Not really been relevant yet
Despite university being mainly online, it has been pleasantly OK to deal with. My lecturers have been very helpful when help is needed and the way in which they have approached online learning is very well done since it was new for many of us
My course lecturers offer talks about career opportunities as well as placement jobs that could help when looking for future job roles in the suitable industry. They inform us of any opportunities that become available suitable to us and what we would like to do
My course this year has been taught mostly online with some in person lectures and practical sessions
My university has a range of facilities such as an orangery and a library to use for studying as well as its own bar for drinks and socialising so there is something for everyone to do
My university offers support in any situation and is available to help in any circumstance, therefore they are easy to go to when help is needed and they are available across social. Media too which makes contact very accessible
I don’t think it would be fair to give any more than 1 star due to living it a home this year, not out of choice. I have received no help or support this year from my course, considering uni is new to me, I am dyslexic and have never met anyone from uni (including professors) My experience was not great online as most lessons included professors babysitting with children screaming in the background or dog barking.
I am currently online with Minimal/none support
