Graphic Design BA (Hons)

University rating (4)

The best aspect of this university is definitely very personal approach, specifically from tutors. Where it could be improved is possibly the student life. I know they are doing some stuff but the advertisement is really poor. I don't spend long time on Instagram where they share most of the stuff so usually i don't know anything is happening.

Adult Nursing BSc (Hons)

University rating (2)

lack of communications between the teams as well as complete disregard and shut down of issues raised by student severely affect the impact the university as well as the adult nursing course has on the students. Although some adult nursing lecturers go above and behind to support their students the overall experience is highly unsatisfactory. Furthermore the amount of work being crammed with placements and poor assignments dates planning with little to no regards about students wellbeing who are expected to accept the workload as the course is "hard work" has a severe toll on the student mental and physical wellbeing .

Event and Tourism Management BA (Hons)

University rating (5)

As rated above it really is a great for study at least in my humble opinion. I love the location, the facilities, and the looks of the university I am getting along with all the people I meet and have good relationships as well! Plus this Uni is where I have met my girlfriend and I am really thankful that it brought us together! The events are organi1ed either by the University of Suffolk and the Students Union!

Software Engineering BSc

University rating (5)

The unions are varied and the support that you get as a student is great. The worst aspects are that some of the professors are really unengaging. There has been considerable confusion and poor communication on the Uni's end in dealing the Off the Job hours that we have to do as apprentices which has been a real pain point for all of us and led to multiple occasions on which we've had to redo these logs retrospectively.

Adult Nursing BSc (Hons)

University rating (4)

Unfortunately, there is not much I can say in regards to student life and the overall university itself as I lived off-campus throughout my years of being here. There always seems to be events held both in and outside of university hours, with other facilities all close by for those wanting to experience the uni life with friends or by themselves.

Adult Nursing BSc (Hons)

University rating (2)

The support is superficial and when concerns have been raised about the nursing course, they have been ignored. Apart from a few lecturers that are interested and work for their students, the lack of communication across services like placement services and the hospital brings their efforts down. The nursing course is full time and comes with multiple responsibilities, as such is expected that the lecturers and course leaders will try and help, unfortunately this is not always the case. The essay and due dates for assignment are cramped and put great stress on students especially with hospital placements and personal life going on at the same time. On other courses students benefit from free weeks to work on assignments, we are expected to complete them while working 38.5 hours a week on an unpaid placement. The course organisation is shameful and the communication across lecturers from what they expect to be written in an essay, to what is asked for from other modules is limited. As such the students become confused and get different information from different people and end up paying the consequences with low marks on essays that have been given the wrong guidance on to starting placement on the wrong ward and having to recover hours that have been already worked.
