Good start, enjoying learning a new subject and looking forward to putting it into practice. The library requires updated books as technology moves very quickly. Very secure within the buildings. The car park is quite expensive.
The support seems very good, yet to use the services.
Like to focus on two modules at a time whilst fitting it in with work. More notes to accompany the presentation slides.
Great choice, hopefully active - need to look into it.
Yes, very good. It has everything I need around it.
Learning about them, they look very well priced.
Sounds great and considerate.
Medical reasond made its so hard, and wasnt able to joinnin everything i wanted too.. up the town, BLUE ARNYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYT
Not enough time to do big projects like dissertation
Brilliant they can't do enough for us
Overall I have enjoyed my time here and feel I have been prepared for the next steps. The content covered in the modules has been interesting and lecturers always strive to make content as engaging as possible. The lab work is a huge pull if you're looking to go into research or into a lab based role as you get trained in a variety of techniques such as cell culturing, with the possibility of stem cell culturing in your third year for your dissertation
The university runs many fairs which range from a general careers fair to more specialised areas such as teacher training fairs. My course as well has many implementations of preparing us for employment, such as a module in which an assessment was to prepare a CV, Job application, and have an interview for a pre-prepared job posting by the Lecturer
The time spent in the lab versus in lecture was roughly 50/50, this allowed for techniques and skills to be developed alongside the theoretical learning of a lecture. This gives us an edge over other students in the same discipline who do not have as vast training in a lab as we do, thus improving our employment prospects. The amount of contact time could be more, however, this is true of all universities not just UOS. UOS do have a vast array of online content to aid in the self-taught hours however which I feel counters this.
over the course of my degree i have seen a vast improvement of the student union, from them gaining new space to bringing in more for the students as well. For example the new study space and tuck shop in the Atrium building is a great addition to the university space.
Being a relatively newly independent university the facilities are outstanding, with a vast array of laboratory equipment available for science students, this increases the practical learning undertaken on the course
yes, the university location gives quick access to the town centre as well as to cardinal park, which houses not only the popular night club unit 17, but also a variety of restaurants
Although I myself did not participate in any sports activities I am aware of the multitude of the clubs on offer, as well as a diverse range of societies, with enough that there should be at least one to appeal to anyone
Every member of staff I have encountered have all been friendly and ready to offer help if needed.
Good support and introduction - a lot of opportunities to meet new friends. A lot of information provided prior to starting at university and moving into my accommodation
Small class but not interactive learning
Yeah a shop just across the road
Very wide variety
I.gh have bbn enjoyed university be vet very much. It has been interesting for me. I expected more. Bout not to he's worry . Well try better next time. I will fdo lots of and work.
I have experienced nothing yet. Hopefully in the 3rd year they will help.
Quite interactive and small groups. Gives us lots of online work.
It's alright. Not many interested in it.
Quite good. Lots of computers and large library.
Yes very good. The actual University is about 2 mins if not that from the rooms.
Not very good. Have to pay for them all and they are not varied. Only have a small selection of sports.
Very good in that terms. Excellent support.
So far so good, I’m taking things one thing at a time, enjoying every bits of study but stressful sometimes. The future student should be prepared before getting admission, and for them to plan ahead and be very organised
There is no much in helping student like me, who has been pleading for a placement close to where I live in Norwich. They post me far away from my home and I’m finding it difficult to get help with my little one school runs, the school said they can’t post me in Norfolk area as Suffolk is where the school based.
I love my course and we have some brilliant lectures but we spent more time on placement than school. It’s should be 50/50 aspect.
Student union are fantastic as they have help me out on school matters last year. Kudos to them all.
They are baby university, trying to gets to the top.
Yes, the university is in a good location for local amenities and in terms of distance to student accommodation. I live at home in Norwich , a single parent of three kids and it’s can be very had to get to school sometimes because of train cancellations, also long distance placement is another difficulty I faced.
There is available sport area opposite the school at the college.
They are good in support on some aspects, the student service are great but the school course leader is not supporting single parent like me in getting me in a closer to home placement.
A tad stressful but I've enjoyed it so far. The work gets heavier as you go throughout the year but if you start it early it's okay. Freshers needs a bit of work to catch up to the standards of other universities though.
They have career fairs.
We get a lot of support because we are a small cohort but sometimes it seems a tad disorganised
They have a student union shop which is fairly expensive compared to the Tesco which is 5 minutes away. We don't have a student union bar.
Fairly good but some universities have better health care facilities such as mock theatres or wards.
Yes. The accomodation is a 5 minute walk away and the town centre is about 10 minutes away
Compared to other universities there aren't as many societies which is a shame.
Pretty good but they don't have any spaces for DSA funded tutors.
I had a mixed amount of good and bad. Learned a few things, good involvement with the University but the lessons could be taught better. They put too much things into one semester which are absolutely relevant
They are good. But wish they would host more career things.
The lessons are often over crowded and the teachers are very biased to the style of work they have done in the past. Some useful feedback, but lecturers for this particular course could be better.
The variety of sports is rather low.
University support is very good. Lecture support is mediocre.
Overall this experience has been amazing, i have grown up as a person and professional, eternally grateful to all professionals that helped me to get here and thought me so many things. I will miss this place were i have been now for almost 5 years. Its not about get a goal, its about the journey, normally teach us so much. Big thanks to all that amazing peoples.
Besides that they prepare us for interviews, help us with our cv, teach us how to look for job and behavr in interviews, they have a page and send emails with job vacancies and our class went also to one job market in London.
I love the fact that in science here our classes are not so vig like in London or other places so everyone has the opportunity to do practicals. Also this benefit us by a more efficient and quick articulation between students and teachers. I absolutely loved the experience as a student abd there is nothing i can say i don't like or like less. I am very grateful to my university.
Very active and versatile. They do a lot of work and activities. Have changed a lot at our university and you can see that they are always working in something.
Looks brand new and everything works. Is evident the effort to keep and preserve facilities in a good state
My university is in a very nice and quiet place, also near town centre (in the opposite end from were i live), right in front of marina which is very therapeutic when you are having a tea in your brake hah.
Very rich choice and also partnerships with very accessible prices
Very good. When i was struggling in the beginning i thought nothing less than being a hard period. Actually i have been diagnosed with dyslexia and other issues. All was started by having directions from my tutor and the system worked very well. Everything was very new for me and the system worked amazingly. Today i have DSA support (computer and study skills tutor) all steps guided by University, they are always ready to help and look always ways to help a student with their issues. Had also counselling and it really changed me. This University impacted positively in my live in all aspects, not just in profissional field. I never felt like i was just a number.
I am 58, in my second year, and loving every minute of it. I am the student rep for my cohort, and the Eastern Region rep for the Royal College of Nursing, and really enjoy both of these roles as well. I am looking forward to doing lots of humanitarian nursing overseas, none of which would have been possible without the University of Suffolk and its wonderful staff and students.
The university holds lots of job fairs, inviting local large and small employers to come in and present their firms. The university has close connections with all the local employers.
I enjoy the Adult Nursing degree as all the tutors are nurses, and therefore have many years of experience to pass down to us.
The SU has just opened a new lounge area combined with a shop, which is proving very popular with students. The SU is a very good source of information and help.
The university is by the waterfront, near to shops, cafes, restaurants, bars, and the town centre.
There are many societies and the sports scene is very good.
The university has a very good counselling department, which is very useful as the majority of students are health care students, and experience a lot of trauma durung placements. The tutor feed back is excellent.
