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

It has been difficult but it would be the same no matter what uni I went to. I honestly think this is the best place for me and I've been incredibly happy here. Whilst there have been some really hard times, there are supportive people around to remind you that you CAN do this. I know for a fact I would have been miserable if I had accepted going to a different uni.

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

They encourage us to find work placements and they also bring in professionals from the industry to build connections.

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

I like how supportive the lecturers are and how they encourage you to do your best. I don't like how the course doesn't have enough funding for everything we need (e.g. a dryer for the costume room).

How many contact hours per week do you have?

25

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

I didn't get involved in my previous two years as I was busy with work, however I am the student rep this year as I have figured out how to balance my time.

Uni Facilities
How good are your university's facilities?

They're not the best and they need a lot of work.

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

The city in Carmarthen is a lot nicer than my home town and I would be happy to live here for at least a year after uni.

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

Because they are student-run, the timetables fluxuate and meetings are sparse.

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

I think the support is wonderful as the staff here are very down to earth nd genuinely want the best for you.

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.
