The annual Whatuni Student Choice Awards (WUSCAs) highlight the incredible work carried out by institutions for their students. Due to Covid restrictions, this year’s awards were not collected on uni campuses as usual, but instead based on submissions from institutions, which were then judged by our special student panel.
2021 WUSCA winners
My university experience has been good overall. Some areas need more expert lecturers, the number of lectures can be increased to cover more issues and lastly academic research and writing, referencing courses must be mandatory to make sure everyone can produce good piece of work.
Unlike my home country, I have seen this kind of departments such as careers departments etc. They are very helpful,kind and give every information needed.
The most I like is that our lecturers give us chances to make presentation in class environment The least I like is that Courses can be more intensive in terms of contents.
They are very helpful, They have held many events during the semesters
Lecturers are very approachable, they allocate a lot of time to answer our enquiries. Personals are also kind and helpful
BEST EXPERIENCE EVER
Training and seminars are available all the time
The least - not many activities involved in the groups The best - experienced professors
Good, very proud! However, I would like more diversity in the SU management.
Depends, which building but overall I it good
The best, you can choose and do everything you want.
Very good, even I had some problems last year and they were so supportive - couldn't complain
The best decision I've ever made, no doubt. I came from abroad and I don't regret it for a second, Bradford is a lovely place, filled with lovely people, it's been a great journey so far.
It has a god-like careers department, shows us the opportunities, helps us apply, finances the experiences, overall its just absolutly flawless.
Wouldn't change one thing.
Alway present, helpful, friendly, etc. Just perfect.
I am having a really rewarding and rounded experience at Bradford and feel confident that I will gain suitable employment after graduation. I find the lecturers friendly, knowledgeable and approachable. I'm really enjoying my time here.
There are weekly careers workshops which I will be using soon.
I like the mixture of practical and theory lectures and workshops. Assessments are varied also.
Good representation for our course. I feel able to easily communicate any issues to the teaching staff.
The library and computers are really good.
Yes it's walking distance to city centre and all amenities.
I am aware of a number of sport clubs and societies but have yet to participate.
We each have personal academic tutors who are there to support both academic and personal aspects during our time at uni. Lecturers are easily contacted via email.
I have only just started uni last September but my overall experience has been great.the only thing which I could comment bad about my experience is when lecturers were striking and we were not informed until a few minutes before the lecture started, which is a bit late when you’ve made a 25 mile trip to get there.
We learn all different transferable skills in our lectures and labs and also every so often the university holds a career booster week.
I like everything about how my course is taught and don’t dislike anything about it.
N/a never really used it
Everything I have needed I have been able to find on the university campus there’s a few shops,stationary shops,food shops and also a library which when I have used have found it very useful.
I find it very easy to get to my university it is a short walk away from the town centre and train station.
There is a lot of societies of which you can join if you want to and I believe there is a number of sporting activities.
All support offered is of high standards and I believe that there is a counselling service available to all students.
Loved it ! nice lecturers and support staff large library space and lots of interesting content. Always able to contact staff and they are always helpful. Large array of learning from workshops to lectures to labs
Has a developing professional skill module so get career advise and career training during the degree
Love labs and workshops . Some lectures are boring but very content packed
Elections all the time receive new union information every week always in contact
Well stocked massive labs and brand new physiology department equipment
5 mins from town and 10 mins from train transport links lots of shops nearby and quiet area
Lots of sport and a few societies
Any disability learning or physical is well catered for with personal tutor meetings and large amount of support staff
I really like it even though my course is challenging i feel that the university is very supportive and that's what keeps me going. i enjoy the facilities that the university provide for my learning and how they go the extra mile to help me out in my learning.
always sending emails if there are jobs available and are willing to help with making of CV. They also help with preparation for interviews.
yeah its always different all the time which helps you learn and keep u engaged.
really good always keep us informed on what is happening and very helpful when needed.
yeah it provides everything i would ever need for my leaning. i think the library is amazing
yeah it is 5mins away from my accommodation and its 8 mins away from city centre.
its really good because it looks at all the different sports and encourages everyone to take part. They have a lovely gym that has variety of equipment.
really good the tutors are always willing to help. very welcoming making it easier to go to them with anything. Always take time out to provide us with feedback
It has been great, but also frustrating as I have to commute each time I attend, and the walk from the train station is long and steep, also the trains are only twice an hour!
I am not fully aware of this yet.
I like the fact that PowerPoint slideshows are used in lectures rather than just the lecturers talking, also the fact these slides are on the learning network so that students can access them at a later point. I don't know what I like least about it though.
I have not had much involvement with them however the facilities are excellent and the SU staff have been great with me as of yet.
They are great, from what I have experienced of them, however the swimming pool looks drab and very basic.
It isn't ideal as it is on a hill, so it can be a steep, tough walk to the campus from town, and it is a fair walk from the train stations. However, there are basic shops just across the road, with limited entertainment facilities within a short walking distance. In other words, the university is not really in such a good location.
I am not currently active in anything really, however the selection looks excellent and you can easily be spoilt for choice! The only negative however is that there is a limit to the number of cultural societies, with only one of these representing a Western culture.
It has been excellent so far, even though I have not yet come into many situations in which I have needed substantial support. Tutors tend to be fairly prompt and responsive with emails.
I'm satisfied with the uni so far. Lectures by famous professors are really interesting and broaden our horizons In addition, the uni has multi-cultural and national students, so I think it is also one of the attractive aspects of the University of Bradford. However, the city of Bradford is not English-ish and not as sophisticated as other big cities, so you might feel it boring.
The university provides a career booster training and lectures about dissertation. they are really helpful.
Most-like: some courses are really practical rather than thoritical The uni provides opportunities of field work and study trips Less-like: I do not like one-sided lectures very much
I'm not familiar with that.
Not bad However, sometimes electronic equipments such as a projector don't work. I'm also unsatisfied with the heating system especially in the library. There is room for improvement.
It is located in the centre of the city, and also close to a train station. I'n satisfied with that.
As far as I know, on the whole, they are not as active as I expected.
The uni allocates personal academic tutors to each student and provides free academic study support classes. Splendid.
I've had a good experience so far except on the occasion where I'll wasn't able to go on my introductory placement because I needed one more vaccine which was due the week after the placement
There are always updates and workshops for both undergrads and postgraduates which I believe is very helpful
I like that the tutors use a variety of teaching methods, acknowledging that everyone learns in a different way. I don't like the self-directed study that we sometimes have.
I guess they're okay
They're quite good. Except the audio in classes are sometimes always problematic
I don't know that much about it. I am yet to look into that.
