The annual Whatuni Student Choice Awards (WUSCAs) highlight the incredible work carried out by institutions for their students. Due to Covid restrictions, this year’s awards were not collected on uni campuses as usual, but instead based on submissions from institutions, which were then judged by our special student panel.
2021 WUSCA winners
University life is amazing. We have an opportunity to meet a lot of students from different parts of the world. Apart from lectures a wide variety of sources are opened to us which is related with our field of studies.
They have arranged for many career fairs.
like most- Lecturers are very helpfull and supportive. Like least- nothing
Student union is very active along the campus.
University facilities are excellent. The highlighted facilities are its libraries and parks.
The university is at a very amazing location, but there are some problems that makes it worse. It is situated in the beach and it is always windy. The climatic condition is very worse and often it is difficult to spend time along the campus.
The societies are amazing. Even though there are a lot of societies it is hard to join a society because of the studies.
The university supports in the academic level. it helps us to keep up with modern world.
It has been an interesting experience especially as an international student as it is my first rime studying in another country. I have learnt to be more independent and take care of myself especially cause i am in charge of me. It had also been fun as i have made new friends and met different people from other countries and walks of life.
Through the Swansea Employabilty Award which has been introduced. It help the student aware of what a current employee would be looking for as well as the latest employment trends. It is also a good scheme is the student is awarded on completion of the award, this motivates the student to complete it and to the best of their ability .
I like that some of the lecturers take their time in explaining a concept and even go to the extent of showing practical examples which heighten the level of understanding. On the other hand there are some lecturers who may rush through and the student may not have the confidence to approach and seek clarification.
They are doing a decent job but at times their presence in the school can not be felt.
They are up to standard. But i believe they can be better.
Yes. I can say it is a centralised place and i am able to get to other areas without much hustle.
The societies are good and can allow the growth of the individual in terms of confidence and gaining experience but then it still can be better.
The support offered is good. They are also caring as well and ensures students are comfortable in whichever area.
It has been alright and I am looking forward to the rest of it. The was not easy at first but the will be better when you settle in and make friends with people.
I consider it not so well
I was really happy about everything so I dot have any problem with the course at all
I have no idea
They are actually really good
Yes it is, it is about 5 minutes walk to the build where I have classes
There are a lot of societies and also sport so I will rate it high because five the chance for every student to participate
If youre not the party type of person , it could get very boring as there is not enough sports facilities or activities to do around bay camp , classes have been really boring in the past couple of weeks , but the acoomodation is pretty good to say the least . But im happy about where i am
I only experienced one thing that could help and that is swansea employability award , i dont know much about the other things
What i like most is how flexable the teachers are regarding test dates , what i like least is how hard it is to get good marks in tests , seems over the top
Doing a pretty good job but could be much much better with some changes
I rate them 5/10 , speaking about bay camp
Distance to accomodation: Really close and convenient Distance to local amenities : A bit too far from town
The variety of societies : 10/10 However , sports facilities : 3/10 in bay camp
Haven't had any major issues during the period I stayed in the university but it is apparent that alot of support is available
Overall very good. Easy to settle in, lovely campus next to the beach which is nice. Good and respectfull lecturers ans students overall. The facilities are modern and diverse.
Good: modern, lectuers Bad:
15 minutes on the bus, i find it close enough
Quite good but as with any uni theres room for improvement like having decently heated rooms maybe a place where islamic students could buy halal meat and more restaurants
Swansea employability award was a waste of time
Can ask for help whenever required but i struggle to see the point in studying some modules
Central heating in rooms could be better
Could use another mini superstore
Quite good but some lecturers mark a bit too harsh
Not much info yet on careers
Some are very interactuve whilst skme lecturers are monotone
Cardiffs unions better
It takes around 40 mins to get to uni so isnquite far away
Needs some more promotion
Its fun, i like the school of management and the extra curricular Ctivities they offer. The sports are fun too.
Lectures can be long and a bit waffly
Very challenging, the course is demanding but rewarding. Outsdie of the course, sports are very well run, however it is espensive to joim most teams, and i feel like the tuition fees shoukd cover this
I think it makes a good effort
It feels rushed sometimee in lecturres, but the teachers are focused
Yes, its abiut a ten minutenwalk to accomodation for most students
Very vroad eange of sports and societies
I love the uni and if can have more societies it might be more fun. Also i hope we can have the chance to have the timetable of other modules so that we will be able to go and listen
Not actually feeling about it
Like the modules and don't actually like the test after Christmas hoping it can be taken before the Christmas
It is a little far from the city
There are quite a lot
Having great tutors but not having personal stuff
