I was on placement this year so didn't really feel the impact of online university, the support I received was enough and I really enjoyed this year. Doing a placement online, however, has been challenging and I didn't get the full experience of going to the office but had to work remotely for the whole duration of my contract.
Feel like a valued student here at University of Bath with a good student-staff community. More contact hours or seminars and tutorials could be included in the course.
Placements are a guarantee in Bath if you applied in the first place. A lot of connections to various internships
Blended approach during Covid-19 with pretty good teaching staff. Very few contact hours though so that could be a pro or con depending on your preferred mode of study.
The dorm rooms are nice with good social spaces
Very good student support with an emphasis to make university life better
Online learning hasn’t been ideal, but unavoidable. The lecturers have worked really hard to make the experience as valuable as possible and ensure that learning outcomes are not significantly different. Assessment has been adapted appropriately to the online, open-book environment.
This year has been strange, I know my department has tried really hard but I haven't had any in person teaching and this has been tough. The lecturers have been energetic and helpful but the deadlines were very challenging especially working from home and I do worry that my placement being remote is going to have negatively impacted my final placement next year
Placement has been great- good level of support but could be better with supporting through covid pandemic lockdowns Could have more on social work careers but this may be more appropriate for final year
Some lecturers are much better than others I love how the teaching is research informed Have adapted well to online learning I haven't had any in person this year due to covid Some organisation could improve
I have been able to book study space which has been great Great sports facilities and arts spaces Good cafes and food
Wellbeing services have been great throughout lockdown, easy to access, also provide casual activities eg gardening or walks
I have enjoyed my 1st year although due to COVID I think I have missed out on certain aspects for example in person teaching and social events. I have been able to make lifelong friends.
I’m not 100% sure as I’m not a graduate. They have been helpful when applying to placements
We have pre recorded lectures. At the start of the year we had inperson workshops but they stopped after Christmas and we then brought online. We have had in person labs through out.
It is very clean and there is good facilities. They is a wide range of study spaces.
Everyone has a personal tutor and peer mentor. There is well-being services available.
It has been difficult making friends, especially with people outside of my course, and finding a group of people to share with next year. Uni has been difficult, I haven’t spent much time I campus at all and i didn’t spend long in my accommodation before I went back home
It was difficult starting the year with most of my lectures online, and having only one 2-4 hour in person lecture a week, and it was difficult transitioning from 6th form to uni work load and content
Support from the university has been okay, they have been running some online events but it’s still very difficult to meet new people. Online learning has been difficult as different lectures distribute the material differently and it can be confusing to know where to look. Most lecturers have been very good at communicating what needs to be done while others have not. I think clarity is very important.
My overall experience at the University of Bath has been excellent. I love the campus where everything you need is in one place. I enjoy learning the chemistry course and having the opportunity to apply it in labs. I love the city of Bath which is beautiful and has lots of gardens, shops, restaurants, bars and pubs.
Careers services including help with applications and interviews. Careers service run several sessions a week. The university have produced a website to advertise jobs. A website called My Professional Development which gives help and advice. Each department have their own placement team to help find students their 3rd year placement.
Before COVID: in person lectures and workshops, in person tutorials with tutor in groups of about 6 and in person labs. Since COVID: online lectures, workshops, tutorials and reduced in person labs and virtual online labs.
Synthetic and physical labs along with research labs. Big library and lots of study spaces on campus and in the city. Big gym with lots of indoor and outdoor sports facilities. SU with a bar. Several cafes and restaurants and a shop and bank.
There’s student and well-being services and nightline that’s open 24 hours a day. Lots of support for disability, including one on one mentors. Lots of societies and groups for support.
Although it was short and mostly online because of covid it was run well. All lectures were live online rather than recordings so we could interact with lecturers during the lecture if we had a question. Extension for assignments were easier to get and they were understanding of technical problems.
Despite covid, the university has allowed me to continued to learn and grow as a student whilst supporting me in all ways they could. The structure of the lectures has improved and the lecturers have become more aware of the workload and difficulty of the course due to them having access to all of the material.
Bath is looked highly upon as it is known for its high standard of teaching. There are many opportunities to develop new skills and connect with companies
Lecturers have always been available for a quick teams meeting or conversation by email. Response time is much faster than usual.
Hire of equipment for online learning has become very easy and accessible. The university has bought new buildings for study spaces away from campus.
