Meeh meeh meeh meeeeh meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeéeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeh
Well there is a seminar every month so trying I guess
Some complications like no tutor student interaction
I have no idea what they even do
Not a part of it so , don't know
Better than normal
I’ve loved it, and met so many lovely people, especially through doing sport, so make sure you get involved. My course has also be really interesting, so I have enjoyed that too.
There is a careers fair and your course leaders are able to help you find work experience, my course also has a few placements weeks built in
My course provides certain days off every week, I like how it’s structured. Also how it gives you experience within the course.
The su has a good club and represents students well, needs more sports facilities though
The uni has good facilities for the educational side of uni, but needs more sports facilities, it only has a gym and sports hall, other than that we use the towns facilities
The university is in the middle of the city, close to town and there is lots of Accomodation surrounding the uni
There are so many societies and sports to choose from, you’ll definitely find the club you are looking for
I can contact my tutors anytime - really helpful. And there is specialised support I can access too.
Amazing experience to gain skills - both clinical and interpersonal, along side many extra curricular activities. Enthusiastic, proactive knowledgeable staff and lots of placement opportunities.
Employability hubs and careers advisors
Integrated learning and placements are great. The way assignments are assessed/ marking criteria are often vague.
Could have an on site pool
Fairly good could be better
Fantastic I am enjoying it a lot especially the fairs where I can see whats out there for me. My grades are fairly high as I have the opportunity to get clear lectures bit also support if I don't understand it. PALs is amazing and honest. There is a good uni-work-social life balance.
Careers department is amazing. Love the fairs and events that they put on. Incorporation into modules and tutorial is fantastic in terms of not being too focused it which otherwise would be patronising but they still make opportunities clear to students and you can see what skills you are building with each assignment etc. Fantastic
I dont like exams puts all the pressure on ome moment but I like how some modules are coursework/practical assessed too. I like it when staff record lectures as I can revist them at my pace as I may miss bits here and then. Recording also means I can research bits where I am interested further or there is not great understanding but unfortunately not all staff do this. I like had practical sessions to apply my knowledge and its a bit more informal.
Good communication. love the costa in the student union and they host pretty good nights out fairly cheap.
Very good absolutely love the libary, the labs and lab plus. Lecture seats are very comfy too. There is always help when you need it. Student services fantastic offering support centred around what will work best for you. Can comfortably reach out to staff with concerns or queries.
Definately within walking distance to uni about 15-20min. There is a hill but thats Plymouth. Accommodation does have gym but there is one along the road for if you are doing classes etc. Accomodation has laundary facilities with circuit laundry :( but there is a laundrette up the road. Little Tesco accross the road and Lidl short distance walk. Polling station was local too. Mutley highstreet 5-10mimute walk and shopping centre/highstreet is about 5 minutes further than the uni (if that!) Bars and society events tend to be local and I love taking a walk to Captin Jaspers and the Aquarium on the Barbican.
Lots of variety and made to feel incredibly welcome. I personally love Cheerleading and Surf Lifesaving. Plymouth Uni also has a gym on campus with discounted student rates.
Excellent. Feedback is good and tutors are clear but can adress any concerns and they will get back to you fairly quickly.
It’s a good way to learn while combining it with work or other hobbies. However mental health support should be a bigger focus . Even if students don’t turn up to lectures for a while, some sort of communication should happen to ensure wellbeing
Weekly lectures on career development
Like most- balance of exams and coursework Like least- lecture times can be awkward, 5 hours of free time in between lectures
Modern, convenient and a good socializing place
Very modern and useful
Good variety although I haven’t explored it personally
Poor, counseling can be improved, from personal experience with the wellbeing center, the practitioner didn’t know most mental illnesses so I couldn’t get proper solutions with my issues
It’s very different to my old life as I have moved away from my whole family in Portsmouth and moved 5 hours away to Plymouth on my own. I love meeting new people and doing the course I love so it’s still fun.
I haven’t come to experience any of this yet, therefore I’m not entirely sure but I do know that at the end of most courses, they give you work placements.
We don’t go in very often to learn as we have one or two lectures a week however, we get taught how to use all the equipment and apply it to our work.
It’s next to the university, however the food and drink is very expensive for something for students.
My university owns expensive and useful equipment such as cameras, sound equipment, sets and much more that we use in my course to teach us how things are done in the real world of film.
Extremely good, just a 8 minute walk to the university and a 10 minute walk to the town, however, if shops are needed there’s supermarkets and shops up the road which is very convenient.
Very good, I’ve looked through them, however, I don’t belong to any of them personally.
My lecturers are excellent in both helping us with our work and also if we ever need them, they’re open to helping us personally too. They’re very welcoming which is nice.
I think my university experience so far has been really good, much better than I expected. I love my course and i have made such amazing friends already which is something I really wanted to get out of the university experience. I’ve developed a lot as a person and I’m starting to have more confidence and talk more to people, and I am just overall a more happy individual.
They fully prepare us on early placements in the field, giving us real context for what we learn and giving us a variety of chances to do extracurricular activities such as awards or volunteering.
What I like most: the way that they teach with powerpoints and interactive sessions is extremely helpful as it makes me want to learn and want to engage in lessons. What I dislike most: the placement of lessons is quite off-putting. There are weeks where I’d want to go home because I live 6 hours away, and they like to put irrelevant lessons on when I could just do independent study. This is specifically aimed at when we have CLEW weeks.
The student union I haven’t really had much connection with, I’ve been in the SU building a few times and it’s a nice environment but apart from that I’m not too sure.
Yes it’s really close to city centre and close to all of my placements as well as my accommodation.
I think there is a really good variety.
Extremely good, I feel really supported by my academic tutor who I always feel I can talk to and be honest with. The teachers and lecturers are also very helpful as they always try their best to answer questions in a way I can understand.
Really good. Great people. Amazing location. Literally 5 minutes from the sea. Very good facilities on campus and nice staff. Travel and accomodation are also very well organised
My course is very unorganised
It’s a perfect city university. Everything is in walking distance
I suffered greatly with mental health issues and the support wasn’t there as it got cut a few sessions in. Where does all my money go? Core texts being provided for free was cut half way through my course. My faculty was removed and a law student is now in the arts faculty?! Lecturers forced redundancy. Where does my money go?!
Luck of the draw if you pick the right modules
Lots of powerpoints and recordings Essential core books are not included in our extortionate course fees
Not the biggest community vibe but they work hard
Old and dated buildings, cuts to staff, resources and support
In the city centre, next to train station
Lots of variety
Tutor is pretty uninvolved. Mental health support cut whilst using it
