It's been good having a high level of support but stressful trying to complete all assignments within a short space of time It's a good college to come to if you want to have extra support and s.aller classes rather than formal lectures
Workshops, talks and dedicated help centre
Personal, smaller classes, feels more like a lesson which gives more support Working full time plus a degree is hard to ensure all of the work is done within the tight term time
Good, the HE room and library is good
Very Good, if you're ever stuck tutors are happy to help
Great, it has been hard at times but it has been good and ensures I have a better future and the college is always open for support. The college has multiple ways of supporting students depending on there styles
Gives me alot of transferable skills to further my career and increase my employability in the career I want to focus on
I like we get set sessions, would like some more home interactive sessions too
The facilities are good at Solihull college. They have set areas for different levels and also good rooms for training and lectures.
Alot of support in alot of support
Very positive, I feel I have developed both academically and as a person through my course completion. Students attending Solihull can expect a warm and supportive learning environment along with resources to support them in completing their studies.
There is an accessible careers advice centre through the library that students can access along with help towards CV completion. In addition there is material in the library about apprenticeships and graduate employment post university.
The lessons are informative and detailed with enthusiastic tutors who have module knowledge and enthusiasm to deliver this to students.
Good facilities and learning environments for students with lots of access to PCs and resources where required.
The support regarding the modules is on hand when required and upon request. Along with this the college promote counselling with students if needed.
Very good. I have found the course very beneficial to my workplace and personal skills and knowledge. I have found myself beconing more jnterested in topics throughout the course and I would definitely recommend this to other people considering starting the CMDA programme.
Offers a lot of support and advice and arrange talks
I like the way we are taught however i would prefer we didnt do 4 courses at the same time
stressful to juggle the degree, full time work and the apprenticeship. More time is needed and I feel we would understand the modules much better and grades would improve if we were taught one module at a time.
I would prefer if it was taught one module at a time
some more than others
Good learning environment and good facilities. Course books available when needed. I'd recommend the College to other especially apprenticeships as the timetable works well whilst working.
Careers, modules on self development
Lots of teaching time and interaction
Available but havent used any yet
I am really enjoying it at the moment and would recommend it to anyone who is thinking about joining. The people in my class are also friendly and easy to get along with and it makes the work enjoyable.
The tutors have offered us job opportunities and on Moodle there is a careers section
The computers are too slow or some of them do not work. the projects aren't the best and it makes it hard to look at.
Some of the computers are slow to work on and the projectors aren't clear to look at. Other than that everything else is good and i am enjoying the course.
The tutor feedback is great as i get a respond as soon as possible and the tutors do as much as they can to keep me motivated and get the work completed. Having tutors that communicate with us makes it more enjoyable to attend the lessons and get the work completed.
The overall experience has been disappointing. There has been some highs and lows. The teachers have always attempted to do the best for us overall. Having a smaller class is a good aspect as you are able to get more one to one if you want. The quickness of work being marked and our semester grades given out has been a massively disappointing aspect of the experience. The lack of days on the final year has put a slight downer on the overall experience. The monitors that we previously had gave eye strain until we moved to a new classroom. As well as this, to pay 7k for one day a week is not value for money and is very disappointing to pay this much for one day.
The uni does not offer any form of work placements to my knowledge. A few emails in regards to job opportunities have been sent. Other than that, we have not been offered a placement at a workplace. This is disappointing as getting a work placement in an organisation would have been good for boosting confidence and understanding the world of work better.
The classes are small which is good giving you a better chance of speaking to the teacher one to one if desired. However, 1 day a week is not enough for the final year of the degree. 2 days at least is required for a better understanding of the modules overall. More questions can be asked and possibly better knowledge overall and better grades overall too.
They are average. There is a canteen for you if you decide to get food or you can venture out and walk up to solihull town centre and get food. There is a study centre specifically for HE students which is good so you are with people studying a degree and focus better. The PCS are fitted with virtual machines. They seem to be quite slow at times meaning less time to do any work in class.
The teachers provided to us are good at teaching and information they provide to us. However, being in 1 day a week limits this and we don't get much other support other than this specific day of the week. In terms of feedback for grades, we have to wait a very long time which is frustrating. We are still waiting for semester 1 grades which were submitted early January. As well, we don't have access to any form of provisional grades to indicate a pass or fail which is disappointing.
Pretty good. The staff are great. There is a canteen to get food and there are enough facilities to allow anyone to complete their task One thing that I can say that needs improving is that the food can be better, some of the computers can be better in some rooms and to allow gaming students to access the VR room via seperate codes. This would be nice but it's highly unlikely due to e amount of money that was spent in that room
By giving us information about trips and potential jobs. They also give us tips on how to apply for a job and what we need to give us a chance to get the job
The tight deadlines are a pain because we would have to focus on two assignments at the same time. This unfortunately means that we to focus more on one assignment more than the other
Very good. It has got all of the equipment that I need to allow me to pass my course
Very good. The tutors are very honest on feedback. They tell you what's wrong and how to improve
The teachers are helpful other than that there is not much to do which. Makes it boring The teachers have been very helpful. The exam was I had I got a lot of help.
Not a lot
Some of the teachers are very helpful but sometimes there is way too much power point
They are not what I was expecting as most my work is on computers and the computers are very slow. Sometimes they stop working and they just don't work
Not a great deal
