Loving it, loved it. Uni of Winchester is a really special place. Liberal arts felt like an experience unlike any other, unique and challenging and really worth the effort. Such a welcoming vibe too.
So many work opportunities offered on campus including academic skills tutors which is perfect for those interested in education. They also add many activities to HEAR (higher Ed Achievement report) which goes on your transcript when you graduate, can make you stand out. They also have a really helpful graduate employment team who regularly offer free training, workshops and advice.
Most. Classes on the Liberal Arts degree are mainly seminar based. My year was 12-15 students. It meant the quality of teaching was super high, and the learning from and with others was rich and nuanced. Texts and ideas we studied was really challenging. Least. I'd like a few more faces, a few more teaching perspectives, some more visiting lecturers.
It's good, it listens. Doesn't always get the balance of needs right between mature students and general student body. But decent on the whole. And the sports socities seem to get a lot of the union. Nice to see.
Some places needed a refurbishment and now they've had them it's all pretty slick with some nice historical features here and there.
Winchester is a beautiful city with a buzzing high Street with everything you'd expect. It's a quite city than usual, plenty of time and space for chill, and in the summer it is stunning. Limited night life, but what there is seems to satisfy most.
Performance, sports, and commuters were all great when I was there.
Academic support by teachers, tutors is outstanding, couldn't want for more from the liberal arts staff. Student services work hard too. And Academic skills is really on point. They've got some brilliant staff there too.
Average. For what I'm paying I expect better. Go to a higher university with better standards. Unacceptable errors in communication such as typos, lecturers turning up late to lecture and lecturers being fired and hired each year shows that the course is scraping the bottom of the barrel in getting lecturers of quality.
Networking events are sufficient, the lecturers stated that you won't make money in Journalism.
Lecturer notes have lots of typos giving the impression that they don't care about the students (customers), generally disorganized online lecture notes. Poor lecturers with a few exceptions. Boring delivery.
Poor student's union, overcrowded now. Empty student club nights are still being sold when they won't let you go in to see how many people are there or get a refund if there is a poor turnout.
Satisfactory, has all the facilities required.
Just pubs, you can go to Southampton.
The figure for in-class hours is inflated online, realistically you don't have many contact hours. Lecturer's take ages to respond via email. Some lecturer's treat students like children, no grace or respect. Poor explanations for coursework lead to confusion as to how to do things as basic as submitting work. Had to refer to student groupchat instead. This needs to be clearer.
Much more difficult and draining than expected

I'm going on a work placement next year which is related to my course.
I like my tutors as well as lecture rooms and materials used to conduct lectures.
Facilities are easy to access and manage.
I don't really like the people I live with, although the accommodation itself is very simple and comfortable as I live near my business faculty.
Winchester is a lovely, small town.
Sports societies are very amazing in terms of friendly teams and fun exercises.
We have plenty of academic support options, including buddies scheme and academic skills team.
A lot of fun quite stressful but a great experience in meeting new people and making friends
We get lectures on them but they're open to it
They have a variety of events and the SU president is open to our opinions
Library is good, multimedia centre is quite limited
Mainly cafes but not a lot is in Winchester besides pubs
They're a variety and a lot of fun
They got me support over the summer

Not much to do in Winchester and no night life. + locals hate the students
Lots of events planned and lots of fun and new friends

Course is hit and miss but overall experience has been good.
Very limited help from geography department. All push PGCE even if you don't want to.
Poor choice of modules, lecturers can be unsupportive. Others are great.
Unsupportiv of sport, SU nights out are rubbish and overpriced.
Pretty, but boring and expensive.
More support needed from SU. Sports are underfunded compared to other unis.
Very hit or miss with communication.
If you do not reach out to them, then no
Un-organised, but certain people can be helpful
Assume the worst, not always fair
Good food, learning facilities
Quiet but really lovely otherwise
Best thing about the uni
