The University of Gloucestershire was my first choice in choosing a college to study in. It’s been always a pleasure to study at this university, the staff was very helpful with every question I had and it is always friendly atmosphere –not only admission but also teachers as well. The University has many outstanding faculty, which is excellent. They are professionals in their field and they made a huge effort to make their subjects so interesting and special.
PROVIDE LOTS OF INFORMATION
Average. Not value for money. Undergraduate can be wasteful and 3 years is too expansive for most courses - Postgraduate has been more career focused and personally useful.
Very positive - lots of help and support.
I have never had any contact with the Students Union or seen any active engagement from them.
It is within 5 minutes walk of most necessary locations.
Poor - little choice.
Academic is good - personal is poor.
So far it's been great. I really enjoy my course. My tutors are helpful, understanding, professional but after watching them participating in challenge your tutor Tuesday you can also say that they know how to have fun and that's really cool. They also encourage students to go outside their comfort zone and show how to do this. I couldn't imagine better place to study.
Workshops, your future plan team, employability events - all very useful and helpful
Most of them excellent but there are some that could be improved
I don't belong to any so I don't know
It’s been a really good experience like no other. I’ve met lots of new amazing people. The university tutors have helped me a lot through struggles. I am overly really happy with my decision of coming and hope to get what I want out of the experience at the end of the three years.
Emails are sent weekly to help you with your future plan.
They are often confusing for me as it is not always clear what our final aim is. However, the teachers are very supportive and what the best for all students.
There are apple maps available at all times in the library and the sewing machines we use are also used in industry which is helpful in teaching us the skills we will need for the future.
Yes, 15 minute walk to town which gives you a wide selection of shops which are decently priced for food and leisure. 45 minute walk to accommodation which is a safe and leisurely.
There is a society for everything. We had a fair at the beginning of the year which allowed us to discover a wide range of society’s which are available. Any society’s that are not available are able to be set up as a request.
Very good. One on one personal tutor meetings help to talk through privately with your tutor about how uni is going for each individual.
So far so good. Overall a good experience however I personally don't use much of the help available and tend to keep myself to myself.. personal preference.
There is access online to careers page and it is encouraged to talk to personal tutor about work and skills .
Good variety of lecturers who each have different teaching styles.
Good, they are keen to hear all of the students points and regularly ask for contribution and any pointers.
Each campus varies. Generally good, a refectory, student bar and library at all campuses. One campus has a chapel , another has a community chill room. There is lots of study spac in all campuses
Close to the city centre 5-10 min walk. Not too far from M5 for those commuting like me.
As far as I'm aware there is a good variety
Academic- personal tutor meetings each semester. There is a helpzone that helps with a huge variety of things from counselling to writing skills.
Really great had a very good time meeting new people and learning new things, I love the independence and it’s nice to be able to do something I love learning about
Future plan weeks Courses to increase skills
I like guest speakers and it’s not very engaging
Very good, I just don’t hear from them alot
Yes very good it’s no longer than a 20 minute walk to anywhere
I love the sports such a fun and new way of making friends and being fit
Really good there’s a helpzone
It was an amazing experience. I acquired a lot of skills and it changed my worldview about my profession (coaching). The tutors were amazing and the other staff too. They were all very polite and always acting in a professional manner. The facilities were also good.
The university provides guidance and advise to the students that need information about their professional opportunities.
What I liked most about my course was the freedom that the tutors gave me in order to individualize my learning to meet my needs as a coach. It helped me to improve my autonomous learning too. Also, I liked the fact that I was encouraged to think and critise everything. I do not have any complaints about the way my course was taught.
The Oxstalls campus were I studied my course was a nice and modern place. The libary was a bit small but that was not a problem for me. Overall, I liked very much the University's facilities.
Yes, the Oxstalls campus is close to the the center of the city of Gloucester.
There were a lot of diferrent kind of sports for someone to be engaged with.
It was very good. Whenever I needed support my tutors were there for me, they were very polite, acting in a very professional manner and they were always willing to help me. I absolutely loved that.
I love university, the experience has been amazing so far. The best part has easily been the football team, they’ve been engaging and welcoming with training and socials. Best bunch of girls I’ve ever played with.
I’ve discussed with lectures the possibility of taking part in courses and qualifications, such as an FA level1 qualification for football coaching. And they are able to cover the costs of courses like these if you work or do placement regarding the nature of the course around the Gloucestershire area; such as volunteer coaching football if UoG has covered the cost of a FA level1 coaching qualification. Also the university offers courses such as first aid and sign language qualification courses under the future plan initiative, which are free but have to be signed onto to attend.
The practical sessions are a bit of a low point as not much teaching gets done in it, it’s seems to be more about just messing around playing games rather than actually devising our coaching abilities. I like the content most about the course, it’s often good topics where there’s lots to write about/discuss.
I think they’re okay, I’ve not engaged much with the student union services although the su on campus is a great facility for meeting up or chilling out with food, drinks and games.
Pretty good, the on site gym is a good small gym with all basic equipment provided, although the strength and conditioning facilities are overall fairly good. The sports halls on the lecture site are fairly basic as well as the equipment within. The lecture/seminar rooms could be in much better shape and be updated with newer chairs, desks, etc.
Yeah I think the university campus is in a good place. It’s no more than like a 30 minute walk away from most things such as the quays, Blackfriars accommodation and plock court. Plock court is a main focus for me as I’m a sport student who trains there often, having a direct walking path from the campus to the facilities is incredibly helpful.
I think that the sports side of things is a speciality for UoG, they offer a large variety of sports such as football and lacrosse, then within those clubs they have teams in leagues that are extremely competitive and in high leagues across BUCS, then they have more recreational teams that just play for fun. It’s a very inclusive side to the university.
The academic support is okay depending on tutors and lecturers, they’ll often have very small time frames they can help or you’ll have to book appointments with them far in advance which can be incredibly frustrating if you need to speak/see them in person quickly. Although, almost anyone within the university will email back within 24hrs. Not much in the way of personal counselling I have seen been offered as it’s more of a personal thing that’s asked about on a one to one basis.
I've really enjoyed my time at the university of gloucestershire for the past four years and certainly now that the facilities have been improved throughout my time here. I feel sometimes that the unis priorities can be a bit distorted though - its great that we are the number one sustainable university but is this as important as students mental health with very little counselling support and a difficult long term extension process? Who knows...
We apparebtly are supposed to have the highest post grad recruitment rate but when undertaking recruitment processes for placement years I felt more pressure than support. But the student achievements facility is great to develop skills.
Lecturers reading from the slides. But some lecturers are very engaging and encourage you to learn so it's a bit of a mixed bag.
A good variety of SU officers, SU bar is a bit bleak on the gloucester campus which I think puts people off going as much as they might
A lot for sport with a new sports facility and good for business with the new business school and growth hub. Parking is absolutely awful though, people pay money for parking permits upfront for the year only to not be able to get a space.
Very good location. All campuses relatively central with good transport links and amenities near by
Smaller sports and societies tend to be disregarded and have to fight for funding and equal treatment to larger sports but if you play a popular sport I'm sure it would be great.
Personally my Tutor support is good but this of course this depends on the tutor and their interest in helping. There are ridiculous waiting lists for counselling with some people waiting 6 months to a year for support - to the point where they probably don't need support for the issue they went to get help for originally.
