Project Management MSc

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

Very good I am very happy with my choice of university the course, the diversity, the lecturers. The location of the university the staff are all very friendly and helpfull

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

There are many efforts. However in my particular case employability has been particularly difficult, not because of lack of experience but because of the government restrictions on the number of hours that an international student can work. Many employees will not offer sponsorship for internships where they need people on a full time basis and of course IT and engineering jobs in my. Case are all offered on a full time basis. It is almost as if the fact that I am a student automatically makes me unemployable. This however is in no way the university's fault but the rather awkward immigration system

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

The best thing is that the lecturers are of course very knowledgeable and a real effort is put by them in preparing lectures and additional material for us. The course in general is well structured and balanced throughout the year. There are a few things that could improve

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

I don't think the student union at my campus is that good. When I go there I always see people in Facebook or just chatting about. I also wish we had more microwaves available that were not locked up in the union's office because some of us have very strict dietary requirements and some food really tastes bad when it's cold. We can only use the microwave when the union is open and for of students most our classes are in the evening and the union has no services after 4pm. Totally useless. Other than the free condoms...

Accommodation
What do you think about the safety, condition, location and cost of your accommodation?

I share a house with 3 friends. It is a relatively big terraced house from the 70s. We have 4 bedrooms one family bathroom a big kitchen living/dining room and a big back garden. Because it is a house share our rent is affordable in zone 2/3 east. I have the smallest room in the house and it is still a good size double bedroom. I don't like having only one bathroom but since we have all known each other for a while, it is ok

Uni Facilities
How good are your university's facilities?

They are very good in general but sometimes the cleaning of the toilets takes a while to happen and they get very dirty very quickly. The cafeteria is OK friendly staff. A bit expensive sometimes. Excellent library though not enough places to sit.

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

It's ok I've lived in London for a few years no so I know my way

Would have been higher had it been in person. But despite how isolating online learning has been university Has tried to be as accommodating as possible. However, during my four years at Westminster I have enjoyed my time, made good friends and have had excellent support from staff. I think this university has help to build my confidence and somewhat prepared me for graduate jobs.

Biomedical Sciences BSc (Hons)

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

Both virtually and in-person, it has been okay. Some lecturers are very supportive and empathetic, they WANT to help you progress and do well. Other lecturers CHOOSES who and how to help, they are very blunt and show lack of empathy when needed. I have had professors who refuse to give me feedback on how to improve, but will accused me of plagiarism indirectly. Being hearing impaired, online schooling has been really hard and some teachers don’t really adjust tk that.

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

My overall experience has been good. As I have learnt new skills including communication and thinking skills. I have also learnt a lot about what is happening around the world. Due to my course. However, I feel like because it was online we should not have paid full fees because I did not get to 100% experience uni life.

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

I feel that more 1-1 could’ve been offered , been more lenient with assignments as students have had it hard this year and a half , however students have been reaching out to lecturers in regards to the help that they need to progress i don’t know how much help they’ve received. The experience overall hasn’t changed much compared to my first year but I do feel like I’ve been let down in regards to support

I’ve enjoyed my first year at the university of Westminster and don’t regret coming here. It was a great experience. I had amazing tutors and professors. I learned a lot. It is challenging, of course, but if you try hard enough, you will get the best results.

OVERALL UNIVERSITY RATING

The University provides great Faculty and the teaching is well above average however the aspects that need change is student support and questioning of wellbeing especially during the pandemic and lockdown. Most students are currently living alone, away from home or even unable to socialise with the few friends they have made within a university setting. One of the major issues I still find is the price you pay for PowerPoint slides and youtube videos and the price tag you're paying especially for online lessons do not coincide with the level of education you receive. However, this is also only happening due to the pandemic and the changes in such a short span of time isn't easy for both faculty or students.
