Very enjoyable, i like the structure of a timetable and so far have really enjoyed the different lectures. The social side has been good and my time in halls has been great
We have a career service and our professors are always telling us about opportunities to get involved. Also have a UROP scheme where we are paid to internship at the uni labs
I really like my course, the structure and most of the teachers make learning enjoyable. I wish we had final exams at the end of every term. I.e term one exams in jan and term 2 exams in summer as revising 8 modules in summer is very heavy
The union work really had to do inclusion events etc so I would rate this highly.
No pool but otherwise good, bio department is very well funded and has much better facilities than any other department
Yep, 10 min bus to the city centre, my hall is 2 mins from a local high street. Only 23 mins to london so really easy to get home if I want to
There is a really good selection. Hindered by the fact that the gym facilities are quite small, need to be expanded and there should be a pool but there isnt.
I havent need the personal support but the academic support from my tutor has been excellent and he is always replying to the numerous emails i send him
I love Reading as a uni but am not a huge fan of the town itself. The community atmosphere here is really strong. I would encourage students to get involved with a society to get the most of of their experience.
Lots of careers fayres, free careers appointments
Too many lecture slides but great, knowledgeable teachers
Nice students union. Would be nice if there was more study space. A bigger campus supermarket would be nice too. Representation is superb.
Good. Some bits need a bit of a revamp but very good. Library is new and great.
Definitely. 5 minute walk from the university gym and 10 minute walk from the centre of campus.
Very good. Only thing not offered is a swimming pool in the uni gym.
Academic support is good- one meeting a term. Not sure about counselling as haven’t used the services
University can be somewhat daunting, I have regular 9-6pm days which can be exhausting, with exams mixed in whilst still having the burden of making lecture notes for said exams. As things like social life and simple errands like cooking, but I do have fun. But not always
Always get careers emails for events
Library is nice
Yes for accommodation but not for local amenities
Got great financial counselling
To be honest, it hasn’t been the worst. I’ve enjoyed my time at uni despite having an a fairly large workload (which I suppose is expected). The university provided sufficient facilities as well.
Careers department is pretty helpful when it comes to checking CV, cover letters and/or personal statements. Uni tried to help us develop our transferable skills by incorporating a module on it into our course
The course is pretty good. The only complaint I’ve got is that I wished we had more statistics module in our course as I feel it’s more relevant/useful in the future, compared to pure mathematics. I believe most people who do joint degrees prefer learning something that is more applicable to real world problems
It’s alright I guess
Decent I suppose. The new library is pretty good
Yes. Nice walk to campus, easy to get around
There are a lot of interesting ones to choose from!
So far it has been a bit crazy. The course isn't as structured or organised as I would like and the strokes weren't handled well. The lecturers are nice and the content is interesting but definitely need to be organised better.
Lots of careers meeting opportunities and workshops
Most - lectures are spread out Least - not recorded
Not much to do at the union
Fairly good. Need microwaves
Lots to do and try out
Fairly good. Need more support for coursework
Overall I've enjoyed my uni experience, the course is interesting and engaging, and socially the university provides alot of societies etc. So I am never bored.
Specific careers advisors for every course, who run sessions aimed at your course and whom you can meet whenever. Additional university wide seminars and lectures about work placements and transferable skills are available year round
Like that lectures can be available online and done in person. Additionally good level of 1-2-1 contact with lecturera
The student representation is excellent specifically within courses, never feel uncomfortable to discuss any issues or problem that want to be dealt with, with the student reps
Generally really good, would prefer more food spaces, however the newly renovated library is amazing. Additionally if you want to find somewhere to study in peace or do group work and you haven't booked a room the university provides a free room finder, which lets you know what classrooms are.empty I'm any building that is free for students to use to study in.
It is very close to the town and allowing the local bus routes to run through the uni campus enables ease of access to all local amenities
Huge variety of societies and sports, campus gym is conveniently located to
The support is excellent and personal tutors are always prepared to meet with you at a moment's notice
its pretty fun and the course is enjoyable, everyone is really nice and the lecturers are all really good and well organised. hall is nice with lots of social ops
lectures too brief, too many lectures, not able to have enough time for self studies
Too far from the campus, the radiotor is untrailed, when you flit wid sometimes is not working
Printing fees are way too expensive compared to other universities
I'm having a great time
Uni gives us lots of job opportunities
Lecturers are always available and you can also record some of their lectures which is really helpful
SU is always open to everyone and the events are cool
Yes, takes me 20 mins for the longest distances
There are pretty well organised and they give you opportunities
we have many tutors and counsellors
Its too old
Printing fee is so expensive compared to university of Liverpool
Too far away
