Good accommodation, interesting course with lots of extra curricular opportunities, good lecturers who always go the extra mile. Would recommend it to anybody considering the course
Opportunities to go on industry visit/ work experience/ guest speakers
Nightlife organised is good
So far my university experience has been good, I have gained a vast amount of knowledge that stands me in good stead for life. Also I have made very good friends and enjoyed my free time, whether on campus or exploring the surrounding countryside.
Myerscough has made every effort to prepare students for a job. They have given a large array of talks and visits to elevate our learning. The course itself is in depth and also teaches students a variety of transferable skills as well as the golf specific material.
The best thing is variety of material taught. All aspects of the golf industry are discussed and looked at in depth. Moreover they are backed up with he subjects set in the assignments.
The accommodation is spacious and well looked after by the cleaning staff. The rooms are spacious and the common room with TV is comfortable and is quiet.
The facilities are good, the gym offers first year HE students free membrship as an incentive. The pub on site is good for playing pool and host an entertaining stud nuts night each Tuesday. The library offers a large.l variety of books and the staff are helpful. The HE centre facilitates group study without disturbances
Preston is a good town for night life. The night clubs are reasonable priced. The town has an easily accessible train station and the university library is open 24 hours a day.
The societies are very good and help to take up free time during the day, when no lessons are taking place. They are frequent and cover a large range of activities
The support is very good, tutors are nearly always available to help with work and help point out how to improve it. Moreover they will be happy to talk if one has problems aside from work.
the university experience has allowed the furthering of knowledge basis, meaning that more career opportunities have become available. allowed to communicate and become friends with people with the same area of interest which in turn has increased the passion for the area and allow to work better in different situations.
University lectures are repeatedly providing presentations and opportunities to meet industry professionals to discuss career and industry experience.
The way which lectures are taught introduce new ways of learning and allow a better understanding. with tutors which are always available to help with both work and other issues.
I am in my final year after being at the uni for 4 years doing my degree. I lived on campus for the first 2 years and in a private home with my boyfriend for the last 2. I have enjoyed my university experience and lived all the people I have met. It is a very nice college and campus where most people are friendly and helpful. University has better prepared me for working life and has developed my personality and me academically
Not as well as I thought it would. I am not aware of the job prospects once finishing or what type of job I would be likely to get. I have only heard of 2 jobs from the tutors going once i finish this year and they are of no interest to me. this is making me panic now.
I really like most ofy tutors. Theres a wide variety of subjects that you study and help you find what ypu are most interested in to narrow what you would liek to do in the future down. I love the subject and the variety of teaching methods. The assignments are interesting and not at all boring.
I dont know if we actually have one on campus, I have heard of one at UCLAN but we are very unaware of this. Most students have never been to that main campus and would not know where to find them or what they do
I have found it much bwttwr privately renting compared with living in halls which I did for 2 years. I am very happy with my landlord, he is lovely and gives us such a good price and trusts us massively.
I think the library definitely needs an update as the books are mostly very old. I like that the HE students have a separate learning block with computers but this is knowhere near as big as it needs to be. Theres hardly any computers spare. I think the cafeteria is expensive and does not offer many discounts or offers. The on site nurse is very helpful
We do not live in the city. I did not like how far way the university was from the main campus in Preston because it was expensive and difficult to get there. On nigh outs the taxi costs a lot to get to town and the bus is ridiculously expensive at over 8 pounds return a return journey for just a 20 min journey
I am jot involved in any of the clubs because at our campus I have only ever heard of sports clubs. If the re was more variety such as film clubs, baking clubs and things like this, I would definitely be interested! I think they should have less sports oriented clubs and more variety to suit all genders and personalities.
I think the personal support is good because tutors are very friendly and I would even go to them with problems over student support staff
I won't lie, if you do it right, university is very stressful! But when you get your feedback and assignment results it makes you feel so proud, and then all the stress is worth it! My experience so far has been amazing, I've made some amazing friends that have so much in common with me, I've laughed every day and learnt so much more than I ever thought I would. The tutors are fantastic at what they do and have inspired me so much. If you have an interest in animals I definitely recommend this course!
Tutors have always related subjects covered to working in the industry and how it applies to real life situations. This has helped greatly when contemplating what avenue to go down in full time employment. UCLan also offer an opportunity to participate in mock interviews to help prepare students for the very difficult part of finding a job after the course is completed.
The diversity of topics covered and the depth of material covered makes the course so interesting and fascinating 100% of the time. Each module truly makes you think about animals, how and why they behave like they do, the impact people have on them (good and bad) and makes you want to go out into the industry and be a part of it. All the lecturers are fantastic in their subjects, and with it being a smaller campus it allows you to build a good relationship with them which means you get so much more from their lectures and enthusiasm. Without the lecturers I've had over the 3 years I don't think I would have enjoyed the course half as much. A great lecturer makes all the difference and all the animal lecturers are brilliant. They have so much passion for animals and for the students to do well whilst enjoying themselves.
I personally don't attend any student union events as I live over 30 miles away from campus and as a mature student (27 when I started) I work alongside attending so rarely have time to go to any events.
The campus library is great for finding sources to use for assignments, there is an online catalogue of journals and books as well as the physical copies. Staff are always friendly and willing to help you with any problems you have or if you need help finding a particular book/journal. There are a number of computer rooms available to HE students to complete work - occasionally they can all become full, but there are other rooms free to use if you have your own laptop with you and there is a common room within the animal studies building specifically for animal students. Within the main HE computer room there is a small cafe that sells snacks and sandwiches, the larger cafe serves breakfast, lunch and evening meals and there is also a sandwich bar and campus shop.
There is always support if anyone needs it. Lecturers themselves are brilliant for making time to talk through any issues you may have with anything, I have never been turned away when I've asked for a chat about work that has been set or help with something I don't understand. There is also a support team if people need extra support with organising time or help with how to go about completing assignments. I haven't used this myself but I know it's been of great value to some of my friends.
I have loved my experience and I will be truly sad to complete my studies here. It has undoubtedly been the best decision I ever made and I would not hesitate to recommend this uni and course to anybody thinking of applying. If you work hard and put in the effort, then you will achieve the things that you want to.
This course has prepared me really well for finding a job. There is a lot of practical and hands on learning at Myerscough's own Animal Studies Center, their working dairy and sheep farms and regular trips to Blackpool Zoo. I feel these experiences are invaluable when it comes to finding a job in the animal industry, as what will often set you apart is varied practical experience with many different species. The work project module in the 2nd year also allows you to work at your own choice of placement in the animal industry every week, building up your skills, knowledge and allowing you to make many contacts in the animal industry. I feel this course and Myerscough College are excellent at providing you with the best chance to find a job after your course has ended.
The lecturers on this course are extremely enthusiastic about what they teach, which means you can't help but want to get involved and learn. They are some of the best tutors I have ever had (Including when I have been to uni previously!) and they are supportive of every aspect of uni life, allowing every student the opportunity to do their best. They also have a wealth of knowledge from working within the animal industry, and are able to bring this to lectures using real life examples to bring theory to life. The best thing about this course is the high quality teaching from tutors, the incredible student support provided and working with the animals hands on at the Animal Studies center, the dairy and sheep farms and at Blackpool Zoo.
I have never really been involved with the Students' Union because I have little time for this outside of my studies. There is always stuff going on run by them, especially at the on site pub The Stumble Inn.
The facilities at Myerscough are second to none. The HE only study areas are brilliant to work in providing quiet space to do work alone and also group spaces for when you need to do some work with others. There are numerous cafes and restaurants in order to get food and drink if you need to, and all of the catering staff are friendly and helpful. The library is stocked with a great amount of up to date books and journals, and we are able to use Science Direct making finding relevant research very easy. The staff in the library, especially the library manager John, are extremely helpful with any and all matters and help me to locate the best books I need on a number of different topics. The brand new Animal Studies Center is also fantastic, providing a great space to work and learn practically with the many different species who call Myerscough their home.
I don't live in Preston, so I cannot really comment on this.
Again, due to time constraints from doing my studies and working, clubs and societies is something I am not really involved in. I am aware that there are loads of clubs you can join though.
The support offered is really good. If you are struggling with your studies or something in your personal life there are lots of people you can speak to sort it out, and the uni is very willing to work around you if you are finding things difficult. They always want to help you achieve the very best that you can, and support you to allow you to do that.
Wish I could have done it thirty years ago!!! As a mature student I didn't feel out of place, but if I had done it earlier my career might have been different.
Tutors have industry experience not just teaching experience which helps them to relate to different student needs. Course covers non floristry subjects which helps greatly.
Live far from college so don't get involved in student union
Students feel supported in there studies by the helpful attitude of all members of the teaching and non teaching staff
Great, glad I chose to study at Myerscough, they have excellent veterinary nursing facilities, the tutors are always polite, they college is easy to get around.
The lectures are very informative and the students are taught to a high standard. One of the best things about the course is that sufficient time is spent gaining experience in practice.
Never had any experience with the SU, the main reason I find I don't get involved is because I don't live in residence.
They are very good, there is lots of books provided on Veterinary Nursing, the lecture rooms are spacious, the only downside to the lecture rooms is that they can become quiet cold.
Don't get involved in the clubs, too much studying to do!
Lots of information provided on exams and assignments, tutors are always available and do provide support when asked personally.
Uni has been hard and challenging but I wouldn't change it for the world! Ive learnt so much and become more and more enthusiastic about my career everyday. Going to university is something to be proud of.
Finding a job in the veterinary industry is down to yourself, working hard and proving to your practice you are worthy of a job. Uni help and guide you along the way but overall it is down to yourself to find a job.
The lectures are very interesting and there's a lot to learn!
Don't feel it would benefit me, don't have much time.
the computers and places to do work have improved and are good. the library is fantastic and if there isn't a book you are looking for more often than not it will be sourced for you. The restaurant is poor, food is poor. HE café is fab.
I travel so do not get involved.
Personal support is exceptional, the tutors will always help to the best of their ability and go out of the way to help with any problem or concern you have.
Enjoyed uni life, nice to be independent and to learn about something I am a passionate about, and the tutors are all so ready to help and give advice about further studies or jobs. Night life good and always something going on, on campus.
Good, only one job to go to with this course, but the options have been explained, and will be explained more soon.
Interactive lessons, small class size, chances for practical work like lab and medical cases, teachers approachable.
Don't have anything to do with it, don't have time as the course is so intense and not at college all the time to be able to do anything.
Its ok, nothing fancy, room is nice, the bathroom is usable, although the shower gives cold water for the first few minutes of your shower and you have to press the button every like 5 seconds to keep the water flowing. The kitchen only has a kettle and microwave, so at the weekends when i'm not catered for, its just microwave food, as there is nothing to cook with.
Fairly good, always something going on, sports is a huge part which is great. Food from the canteen not great, there is always chips on the menu and the food isn't always cooked properly. If you want a salad or sandwich it is always covered in mayo.
Not in a city, nearest city is preston, which is about 30-40 minutes away. Night life pretty good, and good for shopping.
Don't know, my course structure means I am not at college all that much.
Very good. I have dyslexia and the support is brilliant for that, extra help and lessons and extra time in exams. Teachers always ready to help with printing on colour paper and use of my Dictaphone. Personal support, always someone available to talk to, and the help is easy to find.
