So far at university I have lost some friends, but made so many more. I’ve learnt how to fend for myself and my course is taking me on an amazing literary journey. I can’t wait to see what the rest of my university experience will entail.
There are often careers fairs held at our university though I am yet to attend one.
I like in my course that lectures and seminar for each module are close together in the day so we can focus and discuss topics. I dislike how it’s mainly sped through PowerPoints and not much discussion.
I don’t hear much from the students union but I know there are many handy shops and pharmacy available specifically to students on campus
Our university facilities are very good and yet to improve. There is currently a 3 phase plan costing millions going into new facilities at uclan and will be complete by 2022.
My university is very close to my accommodation and local amenities are handy too.
There are many different sports and societies to choose from though I do not partake in any so cannot comment much on them.
I can first hand preach the relentless support I’ve received from my tutors, academic advisor and counsellor. I Couldn’t be more grateful
Amazing experience the feedback on essays is amazing as well as being able to speak to lecturers one on one. Making friends was the easiest part of uni. I love university life
Loads, help with placements in the UK and abroad as well as lectures based on CV writing and employability
Mixture of labs, lectures and tutorials, support throughout these are amazing
Good - however they could be more to do or things on
Yes - housing is on campus and town centre is a 5 minute walk away
Brilliant, can even begin your own society if there is 3+ people passionate about a certain subject
Constantly emails and social media posts based around help with essay writing as well as emotional well-being
Pretty great, I’m currently halfway the course, the the university facilities is useful whenever I need to use them, the location and distance is fair, not too long to walk to rely on public transport.
Currently on 2nd yea so I have unable to make a comment about employability yet. However in terms of work placements the university work with the placement team with the Hospital Trust, with setting a period of placement in one area to another. It is possible to contact the team in terms of requesting certain placements. The university also offers international placements for year 3 of Nursing.
Usually one like is how the lessons are taught with one lecture in one hall and then a smaller group session to help students understand in depth. One least way the course is taught is that some lectures don’t have a smaller group lessons, meaning large lecture theatres are usually rushed.
The university has a student rep per course which allows to voice out any concerns. Since studying within the nursing field. Our facilities to help us learn such as Clinical skill labs is very helpful with emulating a clinical ward setting for nursing students. With all the equipments and tools allows us to prepare for the real world hospital settings.
Very good, has all the facilities you need and are well managed and taken care of, with social spaces to a free access to gym, a 24/7 Library etc.
Yes, less than 5mins walk to my lecture theatre block Less than 1min to a taxi rank Around 5-10 min walk from library, Gym, convenience store A 10min walk to the town centre A 10-15min wall to a retail park with grocery stores like Aldi & Poundstrecher 15min walk to bus or train station So far it’s pretty fair distance in terms of accessing my local amenities
Has a wide range of societies, however I’ve only tried one sport society due to a busy lifestyle. But what I have heard from other students they are satisfied with the number of societies.
Yes I believe so, they can both support both academic in terms of tutoring and easy feedback and personal for those who need counselling.
Not the best education wise but social wise I’ve met great people . Lectures could be more helpful as I could have read the slides myself at home. I don’t want to pay 9k to just have a lecturer read the slide out for me it’s not primary school anymore
They have a careers section where you can get help and advise
Lecturers aren’t explaining it better
student union tried to include everyone from every aspect
We have our own gym etc . It’s very good although the library needs updating which they are currently doing
It is close to the town and train station . The location is perfect , everything you need is close by
I wouldn’t know , they don’t really advertise on it
Personal counselling is okay however tutors depending on who you get are very helpful and friendly
