OVERALL UNIVERSITY RATING
Tell us about your overall university experience so far.

I have grown as a person, and would not have been able to do that at a different uni. Lampeter is unique, people accept each other and care for each other. We are a haven for outcasts and freaks, and we love it!

Job Prospects
How does your uni make efforts to increase your employability (careers department, work placements, transferable skills)?

There are some volunteering opportunities. Also work available at the SU bar, and as a Student Ambassador. Also positions such as course rep and faculty rep provide you with a variety of skills. Of course, students do need to actively look for these opportunities but that is just the way of things.

Course and Lecturers
What do you like most and least about the way your course(s) are taught?

I find that some lecturers are far better at engaging with students than others. The sudden change to a Block Teaching system has not been completely negative but should not have been implemented when it was, it needed a few more years of development. Though the option to try modules from different subjects is a good thing, for example I have now completed 2 English modules, while my degree is in Philosophy

How many contact hours per week do you have?

12

Students' Union
What do you think of your Students' Union in terms of student representation and facilities?

The SU is great and does the best it can considering that the uni isn't the most supportive of it. I am a PTO currently and have found the experience to be most enlightening and enjoyable.

Uni Facilities
How good are your university's facilities?

Student Support is great, even if the waiting lists are a little long as it is over-subscribed. The library could do with having a few more copies of essential reading but otherwise is good. There could be a little more support for non-SSL students though.

Local life
Is your university in a good location in terms of distance to accommodation and local amenities?

Haha what city? I am on Lampeter Campus, in the Welsh countryside. There isn't even a train station here! The TOWN, is nice enough and the locals seem to like the students, especially the pubs.

Societies and Sports
How would you rate the variety of societies/sports?

There are a lot of options, though the student up-take could be better, as some of the more unique societies have disappeared over the past few years. R.I.P LARP

Student Support
How good is the support offered by the uni? Think both academic (tutors/feedback) and personal (counselling, etc).

Personal is good. Academic could be better for philosophy 3rd year students, as in dissertation support isn't really there

I am pleased with my experience and I have no regrets whatsoever. I feel confident in what I do and I enjoy. COVID has made my motivation to do work halter a lot. This has not stopped me from doing practical work and making stuff which I want to explore. I enjoy learning new skills by myself and research my into how things are done. My university experience overall has been pleasing. In accommodation I have enjoyed my freedom and doing things when I want. I would recommend this university and my course to anyone who is looking to apply.

The university are doing everything they can do help students studying through this pandemic. Despite this, I think certain lecturers are taking on too much workload as the response time for our projects is very very slow and is affecting students learning.
