It's been good! People are very friendly and I love the campus - there are lots of societies and loads of events, plus some really good cafés and places to meet friends on campus
They have a very good careers newsletter as well as presentations, careers open days and a careers/skills YouTube channel
It's taught in an engaging way, however, the timetables can clash quite significantly
It's good, can't complain! They respond well to students' feedback
Very good - except there are not enough bathrooms around campus
Yes, it's perfect - except that there can be too many tourists around so the area gets very busy
Very good - there's something for everyone
Very good - we receive useful feedback for coursework, and the support/wellbeing team are amazing
I really enjoy it, hard to find work life balance though and it’s been an adjustment from living at home. Workload and type is very different to A-levels so taken me a while to adjust and to find my feet
Lots of volunteering opportunities, guest speakers
Like the lectures and tutorials ! Work load is a lot with not much direction about how to take notes and revise
Very good ! Always putting stuff on , just had student welfare week
Lots of study spaces - hard to find spaces though because everyone is so studious !
20 minutes to my accom Lots of shops and tube stations nearby the uni though
Very varied ! Even got Medical sports teams which is good because they understand our workload and training and races are accordingly adjusted
It has been alright, however definitely more negatives to be found than positives. As my course is my priority, the fact that it has so many negatives to it makes the entire experience worse, and I have considered transferring universities multiple times.
I am not too sure as I have not looked into it.
It is way too independent in my opinion and they leave too much up to the students with little guidance. Furthermore, with a course like English there is no practical application to the 21st century career world, which makes it virtually impossible to select a career field before completing further education.
To be honest, I’m not too sure. I do wish the university had its own sports gym for teams to practice, as well as more similar amenities on campus which wouldn’t require students to commute even more.
They are alright but they’re not in enough. Often lecture halls and seminar rooms are overbooked or too small and students end up having to sit on the floor or lack a desk. There also isn’t quite enough study spaces around campus and finding a seat is very difficult.
Yes it is extremely central, however that also means that private housing in the surrounding areas is very expensive due to the expensive boroughs.
There’s virtually everything you could want to join. And if there isn’t, you can start one.
I want to say they’re trying their best, but once again there is the case of too many students and not enough facilities or support, which means that sometimes one might be stuck waiting for counselling for months. Furthermore I feel as though tutors and professors really don’t care too much about their students or supporting them. My PERSONAL tutor has only 3 other tutees and needs to be reminded of my courses each time we meet (every fortnight)
I have loved being at UCL so far and have found the course very enjoyable. It’s great being in the centre of London at a renowned university. The lecturers have been very knowledgeable and I have learned so much.
We have lots of careers workshops and work placement opportunities
I have loved the location and the variety of things taught, it has set me up well for my current job role. I like the journey to university the least as rush hour travelling can be stressful.
It’s great from what I have seen and heard through emails etc. the student union cafe is great and serves great value coffee
I think this is excellent, lots of sports facilities and cafe/amenities.
Yes I am about a 40 minute train and tube journey away from the university.
I haven’t looked into this much as this isn’t an interest of mine.
I have found the support helpful. I have had an academic tutor meeting every quarter to check how I am getting on. I have not accessed counselling but I have heard this is also good.
My experience has been great, I’ve met amazing people who are now part of my closest friends. The essays are not too hard and the placements are great as I’ve experienced things that I wouldn’t of if it wasn’t for this course.
They have regular careers fairs and always send out an email when there are jobs you could be employable in.
I like that I am with the same group everyday and all our lessons are mapped out easily to find on moodle. I also like all the time we have on placement to get us ready for being an actual teacher. I wouldn’t say it’s a dislike I just would improve the way lectures are taught as it seems just to be read off the slide most of the time.
My course has a lovely representative and the students union bar on a Wednesday is amazing with all the clubs and societies meeting there for a drink.
Really good, they have a great library, Costa and a canteen where the food is amazing and loads of options. Also a water fountain on every floor which helps you not waste water bottles.
Yes, just a short walk to Tottenham Court Road and about 5 minutes to Euston station which means I can get anywhere fast. I live 15 minutes away so it’s a walkable distance but it I was running late I could easily hop on a Boris bike or get a bus.
The sports clubs are amazing, I used to play dodgeball at my old uni and I have continued on to this year whenever I get time. The societies all seem lovely as well.
The support is good, you can go to the student hub if you need anything, a tutor, a mentor or a councillor. The tutors they give you are amazing and are very helpful.
The accomodation is a decent walk away with a lot of amenities.
Job fairs, keeping us posted about new opportunities
I'm a first year, so it is kind of early
Great location but expensive
I haven't had any terrible experiences at UCL - everything so far has been positive
Most lecturers are excellent1
Location is great but safety and condition is not- cost is standard for LDN.
I haven't required much support in terms of counselling so can't judge on that
