I have had my ups and downs, but overall i love it here! Aberystwyth is such a great place to be, with a great community, not just amungst students but with the locals as well. The independence that i have gained from my time here is amazing.
I cannot speak for the whole Uni but my educational department hosts career events for us to talk to a range of people in different posts. They also regularly advertise external opportunities such as summer internships.
I like the fact that the lecturers are very happy to help you outside of lectures, which is something you dont always get in universitys. I dont like some of the teaching styles of the lecturers as it doesnt suit my way of learning.
I dont really see much of what they do, so i cant really comment, but im sure they do alot behind the scenes.
They are pretty good. We have a good gym, a vast range of cafe style places. A huge library. A cinema. And much more.
The Uni's location is pretty good. Its only a 20 minute walk from the main town, and it has all the amenities you could need on the campus anyway e.g. cafes and shops. It has a range of accommodations, some are closer than others but in a small place like aberystwyth, nothing is really that far.
We have such a good and wide range. I myself am the president of one and publicity of another. All the societies are inclusive, fun and friendly.
As previously said, the lecturers are very helpful and supportive. In regards to personal support... the uni is terrible. I contacted the mental wellness people hoping to get some support and they just told me to go to the doctors because they couldnt be bothered.
great location of uni, library and library facilities are great, halls local and low cost some lecturers great, good opportunity for placements and lots of variety of societys on offer
great placements offered
some lecturers are very good, some not great
not great, they closed bar in union, however we are allowed to use dundee unis union which is great
yes city centre location
very good variety
depends on the lecturer in terms of feedback
I've had a good time at uni so far. I'm looking forward to the years I have left. I have made an effort to go to different societies and that has led me to learn more and meet new people.
There are regular talks you can attend that are about placements and work skills. You also get emails offering workshops and other events about working after uni.
I like the independency the course offers me as a lot of work is independent study. I don't enjoy the group work when the groups are randomised.
Close to the gym I go to and close to city centre so I would say it's in a good location.
Lots of different sports teams and a wide range of different societies
The mental health support is okay. Feedback can be later than expected.
I like the atmosphere and the close knit community feel, the library is a comfortable environment and it feels there is a lot of support for students.
Some material that is taught is a bit rushed
Printers and USB's don't work on some computers, some rooms are open corridors
Just because I live in Forfar
Overall, Abertay is good, you get one or two lecturers that do actually teach and motivate you. You just have to put up with the average ones to get through.
I have seen nothing of this so far
Have ha 2 modules irrelevant to my course, almost all classes are not teaching us anything and telling us to check YouTube tutorials.
Now that Bar One has shut down, the Union is terrible, only providing a cafe
Security and Secure parking is terrible, vastly over priced.
Very good, clean, modern, lots to support students
Centre of town, close to several halls, great location
Wide variety, but not necessarily in the right fields
They offer a lot but don't actually make an effort (mental health)
I enjoy my course a lot and think the lectures and lecturers are very good
Uni is fine, however coming from college the difference is varied, both positively and negatively
Regular emails regarding opportunities
Not as many classes/good because of work due
Right in the middle of town
Only involved with football but that's great
Feedback is good
Lecturers are engaging. Dislike online lectures
Never discussed career after uni
Some modules don't seem relevant
Great location, good quality for reasonable price.
Right in city centre everything's in walking distance
Good support but slow with facilities for students with learning disabilities
