Staff are often rude, animal care students treated like free labour spending most of our practical time cleaning out animal cages. Have been told off for being 1 minute late and students have been left behind on occasion because there was a queue for the toilets. We are constantly promised opportunities that aren’t presented. Powerpoints are filled with outdated or incorrect information and typos. Proper support is not provided for students with disabilities, eg being made to walk down the road to the farm, not having a learning inclusion staff member present. The only good bit is the wide variety of animals, but you’ll probably be in rodents or birds every week so you won’t see them anyway.
Do not recommend.
Good, I enjoyed my classes in the first year and I am enjoying my placement now. I am well supported by my placement officer and can access further help if i needed it. Wish the money situation was better.
I have had everything I need
Tutors are willing to help outside of classes and lectures and offer a lot of support. It is easy to access mental health support and counselling
Like the organisation of classes. Dislike unpaid placement for an entire year which leads to only 2.7k from student finance to live from. If if wasn't a sandwich year then I could have full maintenance loan instead of a full time unpaid placement and no money to live from
Employability skills class, placements in practices with support via email when needed
Good, I have not stayed for a whole academic year as our course has placement weeks. Although the time I have been at uni it was great, made really good friends and learned so much. The facilities are great, the library is good although it could be bigger.
They are very good
The support is very good, tutors are always helping and supporting us.
I like the teachers and how the lessons are taught. I do not like that we do not have many practical lessons
Help is offered at any time. Always available and if any questions always happy to help
Enjoyable and learning plenty. Staff are helpful. Lessons can be long but a lot of information is given. The amount of learning resources provided are excellent! Lots of work to learn off in your own time and use for revision. Any problems someone is always there to help. Enjoyable course and something I’m really enjoying!
Good, plenty of Variety
The amount of information provided in lessons
Apply’s applications and apply for jobs in studies
It's been really good. There have been really interesting lectures. As well as this the social evenings and extra curricular activities make fpr a great balance between work and downtime.
Excellent. With oppourtunity to discuss amd reflect with tutors
I love the support amd helpful references and class aid. I am not a fan of the hand out notes, however that is due to my learning preferences, which are accomodated for in practical sessions
They assist with getting work pracements for students, ensuring that the practice is equiped. In addition to this, practical knowledge is taught , aiding in our ability and understanding in practice.
So far my university experiences have been amazing. I’ve met lots of friends for life and enjoyed learning at Myerscough. The staff and accommodation is lovely.
We have a new vet nursing building at Myerscough with good equipment which will be useful to use when preparing for our year 3 OSCE’s. There is a higher education cafe/library which is useful and a large variety of books available. We are also able to use UCLAN facilities which is great.!
The support offered at Myerscough is top notch. Feedback I gained on my year 1 assignments left no room for question and I was always sure on what to add to achieve a higher mark. Tutors are very supportive, offering their help always whether it be through email or setting up a meeting.
I enjoy that we have work placements throughout our time at Myerscough as we are able to implement the knowledge that we have learnt at university , in the workplace, which prepares us for working life. I wish that our second year was a block placement instead of full time work placement.
Myerscough makes efforts to increase our employability chances by allowing us to have work placements. If we are unable to find work placements ourselves, we have placements officers who help us find the most efficient placements (ones near where we live). Our 2nd year of university consists of full time placements, which enables us to develop important transferable skills and physical knowledge that we may not develop in a classroom.
The course didn’t do a lot for me and think it was poorly run. But I understand that it was new and everything takes time to establish. The social side was a fantastic experience as I’m sure anyone would say!
Not great for our specific sport, however, arrangements were made by the cricket acamademy to allow us to train in very good facilities
Not very good. The course was very trial and error. The tutors were battling with learning the course material and how to deliver it at the same time as trying to support us. It was difficult for them to make everything clear to us, when they didn’t understand it themselves. The whole college was very segmented. So you didn’t always feel comfortable seeking support across the whole college not just the course.
It was very new. Our year were guinea pigs and everything was very trial and error. What was offered before I attended was not what was delivered
I personally had no help regarding future endeavours. Minimal work placement was self organised.
I'm currently studying BSc animal behaviour and welfare at Myerscough, the campus is lovely and the lecturers are all really understanding and helpful. The only downfalls are that the location isn't close to the town centre so it can be difficult to get to shops if you don't drive (there are buses though).
Tutors are lovely, though there is little information about other support.
The halls themselves are nice for self catered accommodation, however cleaners come regularly and you're still not that independent.
I would not recommend Myerscough College to anyone. If you are choosing here as your uni place - don't. Awful uni experience, nonexistent actually. Perhaps if you are a big chav (as most people here are) you would enjoy here but that's about it. The teaching is ok. But student support is extremely poor. I am on a placement year at the moment and trying to get in contact with the placement team is impossible as 90% of the time they are on holiday or just fancy taking weeks to reply to you which is just so useful when you're struggling and have no one to turn to. Thanks Myerscough for wasting thousands of my student finance and ruining 3 years of my life! The accommodation is revolting for the amount you pay for it and a complete waste of money. But then Myerscough knows its got you cos where else can you go ? Myerscough is handily located in the middle of nowhere so expect your student experience to be hugely limited unless you are satisfied with walking down the long long road to the only thing nearby; the local chippy. Forgot joining any clubs unless you fancy the trek down to uclan about 3 miles away and £7 on the bus. Yes, that's right £7! (and that's just a single) The swimming club at uclan is about the only thing that made my time at Myerscough bearable. I wish I had gone to another university because this one has just wasted my time. I will be very lucky if I manage to graduate next year.
Absolutely awful. I was on a floristry course and its impossible to achieve your best as the goalposts are continuously moving. The rules are bent and broken by tutors all the time, asking for extra above what is in the brief and deducting marks if you don't add in the verbal extras. Also the course costs a fortune, each week spending lots of money only to receive half dead or not enough flowers to work with. The assignments also cost alot of money, demanding you fill spaces of upto 2m x 2m with flowers. There is no end of year show to speak of, only a cobbled together low budget catwalk show. Accomodation at myerscough is poor at best and very overpriced, nothing works and there are heavy fines for anything that breaks. The student on site bar is dire, barely anyone attends and even then by 11 the place is empty as the under 18s are kicked out. The onsite shop is stocked with processed nasty food at extortionate prices and if you dont have a car, you had better run for that asda bus which may not even run and if it does, you can get on based on how far from college you come from, rather than if you have a car or not or if you have a meal plan or not. Access to preston is dire and expensive with a taxi being £20 and a one way bus ticket from the next village (a long walk) being £5.
