Generally good, I am a carer and the financial support is very good. Good disability team who are very supportive and try there hardest to keep you in univeristy

Job Prospects
How does your uni make efforts to increase your employability (careers department, work placements, transferable skills)?

Internship hub and opportunities are regulary advertised

Course and Lecturers
What do you like most and least about the way your course(s) are taught?

Lectures are often very dry, lack of innovation in teaching and learning. Mlitt course seems to give basic knowledge in latter stages of the course rather than at the beginning

Students' Union
What do you think of your Students' Union? If you don't get involved, why not?

My perception is that it is for younger students

Accommodation
If you live in university halls or private housing, what is your accommodation like?

Build quality is very poor, noise insulation is a real joke. leak on stairwell has been a constant problem. Heating system has constant problems. Expensive for what you get.

Uni Facilities
How good are your university’s facilities?

Poor ICT facilities in library, difficult to find a seat at busy times. Need your own laptop.

City Life
What’s the city life like?

West end of Glasgow where the university is located is vibrant and welcoming. lots of independent shops and bars

How good is the support offered by the uni? Think both academic (tutors/feedback) and personal (counselling, etc).

My overall university experience has been really positive and probably life-changing. I have had so many opportunities through studying at Glasgow University, as well as met incredibly people and learned so much. I have fallen in love with Scotland and Glasgow in particular, which I would have never gotten to know as I have now had I not started studying here. My courses have been very inspirational and really influential in where I want to go in life - through the university I have been able to have work placement or internships at amazing organisations, the experience of working there will hopefully be very beneficial for my future career. Furthermore, through my involvement in clubs & societies at university I have gained so many skills in organisation, activism, journalism and met great friends.

It has been underwhelming, depressing and completely soul crushing. The university does not care about it's students at all, they're condescending and do not listen at all.

Not great. I regret studying here. Basic facilities - library, catering - are over stretched. The university does not seem to value students beyond the fee that we bring.

I've had a very good experience so far. The course is interesting, fast-paced and covers a great deal of material. You won't get bored. The lecturers, tutors and my dissertation supervisor have all been fantastic. I would love if the course could add a practical element in terms of work in mental health or research opportunities over the summer (particularly after the course while dissertation is being written).

I've had a great university experience-I absolutely love Glasgow and would readily recommend it to anyone. Most of my positive experiences are tied to my involved in the Students' Representative Council.
