Film Production BA (Hons)

OVERALL UNIVERSITY RATING
Tell us about your overall university experience so far.

Diploma was great. Had a lot of shoots and was very involved with the experience. However, with the Bachelors, it's not so great. Wish there was more support, the first work placement was horrible. The second placement was OK. To write about the experience was painful and I had no support from the university (luckily, private help). With the dissertation, it's the same again. Not much support, once a week we are told to go in, and try write. They check on us writing once, maybe twice on a special day. I really am disappointed how lethargic the system laid out by the LFA has been since the start of this course, to the point I had my reservations of quitting, asking for a refund. However, after all the extra investment in private help, i'll stick it out and hopefully achieve the primary goal, getting this BA Degree.

The social aspect is great but the lessons and staff need to improve. Unless we bring a packed lunch it’s the same food to eat every day and it’s expensive. When working in the library nobody pays attention to the “traffic lights” e.g. people shout and talk on the phone in the silent zone

OVERALL UNIVERSITY RATING

I'm enjoying my course content and find contact hours engaging. However I do struggle with the reading and assignments due to mental health, despite having support in place. I would also hoped to have made a true friend by now, maybe its the age gap amongst other things!

Overall experience has been brilliant! Year 1 & 2 were the best, as I’m currently in year 3, it’s getting very very stressful and i don’t believe the tutors know how to cope with stressed out and tired students very well

I am really enjoying it, it can be stressful at times and sometimes even a little boring but it gives me something to focus on and to work towards, an end goal of becoming a teacher and getting my masters, with my qualified teacher status. I enjoy a night out every now and then as the night life is good around Derby and I've also made new friends, which I genuinely think will stay friends, so that is also nice as I like to get to know other people and to have a variety of friends who like a range of different things.

Applied Social Work BA (Hons)

Poor. Would not recommend Socialwork at Derby Uni to anyone. Extremely disappointing and poor value for money. Certain lecturers just getting outside speakers in that are not relevant in order to avoid actually delivering course content. How they can justify £9250 per year in tuition fees is beyond me.

Good overall but wish feedback was quicker and more flexibility. I think uni forget that it’s impossible to live without working alongside the course. Guidelines are set but not always followed

It’s been okay. Not what I was hoping for going in. The people I’ve met have been (mostly) nice, and some of the modules have been good, but there’s definitely things that need fixing
