It has been a good experience. It could be improved by better food from the restaurant, or even better the opportunity to be catered, which is not the current case.
It has prepared me very well. Long block placements has helped me to develop all the skills I will need once I qualify.
Claire Bloor the course tutor is very passionate about the veterinary nursing profession, and is a really great tutor for her modules. So the best thing usually are her lessons!
The student union is okay, nothing really to shout home about.
I share my bedroom with another girl on my course. If possible I would have preferred to have a room to myself, however it is not. The housing is kept clean by a cleaner who visits every morning.
The library is open for long hours and the staff are all really helpful. There are also clubs and activities to participate in after lectures.
Preston is nearby. It is an okay night out.
The clubs encourage everyone to participate, but it is difficult for our course to take part in clubs when we are only there for 6-7 weeks at a time.
They provide good academic support to students, they have an online system to access course information, as well a method for considering if an extension is required on your assessments.
Good but cramped in so must be on the ball. Love the staff they are very well educated! They are very supportive and will go out of the way to help you. There could be some more guidance with assignment writing
Fully prepared me
Most of the tutors are very well educated and will do there upmost to help you. Good factilities too!!
Don't get involved no time to do so
Very good made to practice building
Don't know I go home
Unsure no time to do this
I have enjoyed the course and feel it has prepared me for qualifying. Overall, I have not enjoyed been away from home due to the course been predominantly girls who the majority of were trouble causers. I feel the wardens did not do enough when I told them about some of the girls were targeting me.
I chose the course as it allowed a full year placement which I felt I needed due to a lack of confidence. This has definitely prepared me for finding a job. I feel all of the lessons have been relevant, I just wish more time could have been provided for the emergency module/more topics covered instead of the basics as this is the subject I worry about most as I haven't dealt with many emergencies in practice. One of my tutors took the time to look at my CV and help me to improve it.
I feel mostly all of the lecturers have been allocated the correct subjects based on knowledge, experience and enthusiasm. They are all approachable and helpful. The lessons are conducted in a way they can be easily understood and all subjects are taught in great depth which I like.
I think the Student's Union offers a huge variety of activities, including both sports and social.
My bedroom was nice but the showers could have done with an upgrade. I was catered for throughout the week, but cooked for myself on the weekends, I was very limited as to what I could make as the kitchen compromised of a kettle, microwave and fridge. The onsite facilities were good.
The library is exceptional, they have an abundance of books and also take the time to source articles that are unavailable without a membership. The onsite shop offers a variety of products and is very handy. The onsite laundry could do with more washers/dryers and they require cleaning. There is a bus service which provides transport to the bus station in Preston City Centre - this is a must due to the rural location of the Uni - although, it could offer more times.
The city is very busy and offers lots of restaurants, clubs and activities (ice skating, cinema, etc). There is a bus station and train station that are in close proximity to each other, I just wish the train and bus times coincided with each other.
The uni offers a lot of clubs and societies, but I don't get involved due to anxiety which is set off in social situations.
Academically, the support is good. All of the tutors are extremely knowledge in their subjects and are always available to answer questions. Personally, the support is satisfactory. I feel like the tutors were not vigilant and the support they said was going to be put into place was not always done so. I feel not all tutors were understanding.
Hard to keep up with workload, on block release so not there all the time to be involved in college activities. The staff are very helpful but the food and rooms are sometimes quite disapointing.
No time to get involved
Ok but overpriced
It has been challenging, leaving home in Ireland to attend uni and having to make friends, all very daunting at the beginning. But, that being said i have made life long friends! Veterinary Nursing is a very hard course, but all worth it in the end :)
They all are really keen, enthusiastic and bring fantastic learning materials.
I am not at college all the time as i have block release placement, but when i am at college i do attend some student nights in the stumble, its all a bit of fun
Fairly basic, usually warm, cleaners are great. It happens quite often that Wifi does be down, even all weekend which i don't think is ideal for students, this could be improved upon.
Veterinary Nursing facilities are outstanding!!
Myerscough is in the countryside, 10 min walk to bilsborrow, roughly 30 mins by bus to Preston. Nightlife in Preston is pretty decent, clubs open until 4am!
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).
The halls themselves are nice for self catered accommodation, however cleaners come regularly and you're still not that independent.
Tutors are lovely, though there is little information about other support.
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.
