I have made few friends that werent the people i was living with. It was rather isolating as on the twice weekly occasion i did go into uni, everyone had masks on so it was harder to talk to people and make friends. There were no socials or anything so I have yet to join a club or society. The club i did want to join is an indoor sports team but tryouts didnt happen due to covid. Also one senior member of staff on my course refused to help me with an assignment she set when she's supposed to be the expert and always claims that she is there to help. Additionally, housing and finance communicated terribly about refunds and even then I received a lousy amount back that I was not happy with and when I brought this up, they were rude and would not help me understand why they did take most of my money. All in all, this was a terrible first year of university.

Been such a positive and welcoming university. As a small university you get to know the staff really well and each member of staff is so approachable and the quality of their teaching is amazing. As someone who previously dropped out of a university for the quality of their teaching and the lack of support I am thoroughly impressed with the quality of the teaching here at Winchester and can't wait to see what year 2 and 3 has to offer.

It’s not bad I’ve loved my practice experience more than my tutoring session and kind of regret not using the nhs apprentice course which offers free training and a paid placement

This year has definitely been a roller coaster, but I still enjoy it and am looking forward to the journey next year. Winchester still feels like a second home and I'm excited to (hopefully) return to normal lessons on campus in September!

I'm very much enjoying this post-graduate course. I have already been able to put into practice what we are studying in my professional role. The staff are approachable and helpful. The course is designed to be online, so the pandemic hasn't affected the weekly lectures

It has been good, with the better teachers pulling the weight for the entire faculty. Communication could be better and mental health support could be too. The library team are fairly good and supportive, though resources are sometimes lacking from the struggle of uploading them online.

This year has definitely been a roller coaster, but not at the fault of the university. I think that they have done their best to adapt to the world around them and keep students safe and supported. However, my experience as a commuting student will differentiate from a student who has lived on campus or has transferred for international study, where student fees for accommodation and level of accessibility changes.
