Due to Covid restrictions, this year’s awards were not collected on uni campuses as usual, but instead based on submissions from institutions, which were then judged by our special student panel.

Politics and International Studies BA (Hons)

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

So far so good, my personal tutor has been so helpful to me this year and I think it has made me feel good about how I’m doing. My seminar tutors have been really supportive and given me helpful feedback to do better. We should pay less this year, we barley had face to face so we didn’t get the full money value

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

I’m still in uni so I don’t have much to say on this, however the Warwick Internship site and even it’s partnership with Unitemp has been so helpful

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

My course flexibility is great! I learnt pretty early on that I wasn’t a fan of Politics but my course gave me the ability to choose module from other degrees like sociology, this allowed me to tailor it to my preferences

How many contact hours per week do you have?

10

Uni Facilities
How good are your university's facilities?

They provide a lot of online book, which in this covid time has been really helpful I haven’t really explored their other facilities

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

I personally have not had a bad experience , when I thought I was dyslexic they gave me support and when covid hit, the called all students asking how they were mentally etc however recent news will let you know that when it comes to other aspects they are lacking in student support

Civil Engineering MEng (Hons)

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

This year I gave a very low rating because of coronavirus. I felt the level of teaching was nowhere near what it needed to be especially in a practical subject such as engineering. I felt unprepared especially after an online term 3 last year and my mental health definitely suffered at various points throughout the year. I felt that the overall experience was not indicative of the £9250 spent towards it not even including living costs.

Hispanic Studies and French BA (Hons)

OVERALL UNIVERSITY RATING

Having been online, the university experience was very isolating. However, my department offered lots of support and events which I found really beneficial. Also, despite not having access to the library since I was working away from campus, there was still lots of online resources which I found very useful.

History BA (Hons)

OVERALL UNIVERSITY RATING

I think in certain areas Warwick are very good - eg their careers services. But other areas they fall down on. They claim to champion well-being, but I don’t think many people (especially first years) know all the avenues available to them, and I know some people who have had terrible experiences going to these services. They also routinely fail to listen to the student body, ignoring many protests and votes. My experience this year hasn’t been great, but that’s mainly due to the pandemic and not being able to go out, which isn’t the uni’s fault.

Film Studies BA (Hons)

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

I really enjoyed my time on campus, and even being online at home. Warwick is an amazing university, the campus is lovely and the Film course is incredible. However, the university has to improve its wellbeing services and has to revise it’s policies concerning security on campus and establish a zero-tolerance policy regarding sexual harassment and assault. This concerns a lot of universities and is not being talked about enough. Being a woman, I deserve the right to feel safe on my campus. Moreover, I think the university could have offered more than a rent waiver in regards to the covid situation and the numerous opportunities we didn’t get this year.

Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE) BA (Hons)/BSc (Hons)

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

It was a mixed bag year, to say the least. I think the pandemic took away a lot, while adding an additional burden in terms of mental stress and inability to offload that. Had the opportunity to engage with some stimulating academic content, nonetheless, and developed a closer bond with my housemates.

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

Obviously, Covid has limited all kinds of possibilities but, of course, this is not the institution's fault and overall it has been a very fun experience. I would give it five stars but some departments have shown that more in person contact hours were possible and not taken by some departments, which put a strain on our learning and overall experience.

This academic year has obviously been somewhat challenging due to the ongoing situation. However I have really enjoyed all my seminars this year, and have felt supported most of the time.
