My experience has been very positive, I have been able to apply my working experience to university and learned some valuable skills The university is very open to helping students that want help and will establish stude ts that need help before they become to deep in assignments.
Giving students cariuous opportunities, from cv building to interview skills, through to volunteering and work placements. The opportune is always there you just have to engage.
Most, relaxed atmosphere, ask questions if you don't understand, hands on learning. Least, some lectures teaching from other people slides, when they have such vast knowledge to pass on.
If it is possible student union will try to facilitate it. Games stations, sports, bars, community bringing together events.
Excellent, various different food options, shops, coffee, learning spaces, computer availability, staff availability.
Perfectly situated, just off the centre of town, 5 mins walk from anything you may need, good bus route and trains. Aswell as the inter campus bus service
There a wide range of societies to join, if you can not find one that you fancy, you can start your own and student union will help you with this. There is an amazing gym facility along with sporting clubs.
Lectures feedback is invaluable, you can grow and learn from this. The university have an amazing wellbeing centre for any occasion
The overall university experience has been unsatisfactory. The only year that i can personally say was satisfactory was the first year when we had a course lead who had been within the profession and had the experience and knowledge to guide us in the right direction. Every other year had been unsatisfactory, Second year we didn't have a course lead and only VL's. The VL's sometimes didn't turn up, course work was late being given back to us after marking and this had very limited feedback, if any. Third year was placement year, at this point the university had recruited a new course lead but he hadn't came and introduced himself to us at placement, so i wasn't aware of who our support was. No one came out to visit us during the placement year which was made clear it would occur at the start of the year because it's a module and we needed to do a piece of coursework on it. Final year has been awful, we've been told not to go to our dissertation module because there isn't anyone out of our course to offer us help and advice. We've had no support from course leads and emails haven't been answered.
The Visiting Lecturers made it clear that having a placement was crucial to experiencing what a career in Environmental Health would be like. When out on placement i had no support from the university and i didn't hear off them at all. This made is more difficult coming back to University after a placement year. It made it even more difficult undertaking the placement assignment when i got back to University because i wasn't made aware of the information i needed to gather during my placement year.
Our course lead left before the start of year 2 and we then had to rely on visiting lecturers (VL) to teach us. Sometimes the VL's wouldn't turn up because they had other work commitments and we weren't made aware of this. Coursework was marked and given back to us after the four week deadline. Final year, it feels like the lecturers don't know what to teach us and every assignment has been on outbreak investigations rather than the specific areas of Environmental Health. We've hardly been on any trips and when we did we had to buy our own personal protective equipment, it wasn't provided by the university. Emails by the current course lead aren't answered and if they are, it's can be up to and over a week after the initial email was sent.
The Library is good and the staff offer help and support and there are courses you can attend within the Library to help with your studies.
Not enough variety, typically in relation to the course i am undertaking.
The support from the University is awful. We've been let to our own devises. I feel like the current course lead doesn't care, he hardly gets back to emails, he offers very little support and guidance. We've been told not to go the dissertation lecturer because there isn't a lecturer in our facility that can come in and support us, meaning we are doing our dissertations blind. The feedback from coursework can be very contradictory and doesn't help with personal development.
Its a mixed bag at the end of the day. Learning has been engaging and worthwhile overall. Lecturers and tutors have been very helpful, kind, and I'm happy with them all. Careers Development Week and other opportunities handed to me has been very good. I've not always appreciated the fire alarms at early hours, or limited sports facilities & participation, alongside my minimal support with that. However, overall it has been a very positive experience for me, though I'm sure I'd feel the same way at other universities had I'd gone to a different one.
There's a sports workforce manager for volunteering, who is helpful. There's Career Development Weeks, which give sufficient CPD opportunities which can be very good. There's dedicated careers departments at City campus too.
I like that there's engagement in various ways, depending on who is teaching me. There's use of practicals, lecturing, discussions, tasks, weightlifting, court & field games and coaching opportunities. Sometimes I'd like some modules to slow down a little bit or have some more application of theory done by myself, but that can be so different from module to module. The lecturers are great, they make the uni experience more enjoyable for me.
Still trying to figure that out still, who knows if we're actually helping.
Some things are great, the pitches are great, some of the other sports facilities are satisfactory. The gym facilities are small, which is a shame. There's been some money invested into sports labs at the uni that are supposed to be very good, yet I probably won't see them. The sports facilities at City campus are low quality, the gym set up is ridiculous, the amount of students at City campus is huge, but the sports hall is tiny. The sports facilities at Telford campus are near none existent which is depressing.
Its half an hour walk from Walsall, which you could say is an ok town for some things, like swimming, some ok gyms, some ok shops, food shopping is good. But not really, being in Wolverhampton would be better, and Birmingham is even better.
I know little of societies. We have some decent sports teams, and a range of social sport opportunities. Though the advertising and therefore participation of students to make these sessions fun is very very limited. Low advertising and attendance means low satisfaction for those that do go. Its a waste and a shame to what sports participation could be.
Lecturer support & feedback is great. I always get help when I ask. Support with social sport volunteering is limited when I ask, and is demoralising. Issue support from student services has been really helpful in the past.
Excellent experience on my course from the support received from lecturers. Serious issues with central university administrative team that deals with processing tuition fees (not the faculty admin team). My fees were 100% paid by my employer, yet instead of the invoice going to my employer it repeatedly came to me. Even when I proactively tried to anticipate this and complete the online enrolment early and direct the tuition fee administrators to my employer for the fee, I kept receiving the invoice. In the final year of my course I received multiple demands for the tuition fee across the academic year, despite the fee having already been paid in full at the start of the academic year - causing me unnecessary stress and massive disruption to my studies whilst I had to waste time sorting this out. Not happy with this.
There are multiple careers support offices on campus to help students prepare for and obtain employment in specific or general employment areas. Courses have dedicated industry and careers focused modules, the Employability Award and the annual Careers Development Week of career oriented events and trips
Like Knowledgeable, friendly and accessible lecturers. Dislike No issues with how course has been delivered, but noise levels from other students in the library are a serious issue, even when library spaces are clearly designated as silent work areas. Library staff have put measures in place to try and tackle this issue, but much more needs to be done, i.e. immediate removal from the library by security staff, and short/medium term bans from the library for those repeatedly causing severe disruption.
Excellent facilities and social spaces for students to freely participate in what ever your interest area. There is easy access to these via the central location of the SU on campus.
Yes, very close to a range of accommodation options and is in Wolverhampton City Centre with access to full range of shops and leisure options
Excellent support received, lecturers go the extra mile in supporting students to do their best.
Interseting and encouraging with well grounded advisors tailored and tailoring their approach and advises to aid and assist in navigating the path you have chosen to chart.
Easy lecturer access but aseemingly lack of coherent co-ordination.
ok so far, nothing extraordinary but nothing bad either so I have no problems and like it. times can be a little off as there late and could start earlier in the day
good, have fairs on and theres a careers unit
they start at midday and last till 8.30pm, could do with starting earlier
ok, not used it but know its available
yes very good
good, available if needed
I’ve recently transferred courses to the one I’m now on , the help I received was brilliant I carnt thank everyone enough they really did put so much of there time on me .
I’ve only just started so I’m not sure
I haven’t any concerns it’s taught brilliantly.
I’ve heard it’s very good I haven’t really used them yet
Absolutely brilliant they have everything I need.
Yes I drive from home it takes about 20mins .
I don’t have much chance to use these facilities as I’m a full time mom with 3 kids.
I’ve had to have a fair bit of help in certain areas as left school many years ago everyone has been so helpful
It's been an awesome experience for me as an international student. I've been able to learn new skills, get campus work experience and develop my CV. I have also been able to make new friends from other nationalities and also made friends with my lecturers. I believe this can potentially open new doors for me in the future. I love the community because everyone is friendly, honest and helpful. There is a high level of equity in the system, and everyone is treated with fairness regardless of their age, ethnicity or gender. It would be hard to say good bye to the community after my studies. I'm considering another post graduate program.
The uni has the career center that gives advice to students, guidance with CV and cover letter writing as well as interview preparation tips. The job center also advertise latest graduate jobs and internship positions before they become available publicly. I've been able to get two part-time on-campus jobs through the job center. There's also a lot of useful materials (brochures, flyers etc) providing information on top recruiters in the UK and internationally.
The lecturers are very friendly and approachable and helpful. They help me find additional useful materials and resources. Class size is small making interaction meaningful. Teaching is effective and practical, however, there's need to include field trips to relevant companies in the industry of study.
Student union is awesome. The give a strong voice to students and plan lots of activities through out the year to keep students meaningfully engaged
They are world class. The university has top-notch IT facilities, with a library that opens 24/7. There's free wifi for all students as well as computers on all buildings. The look of the facilities is modern and appealing
The university of Wolverhampton is strategically located, being a 5 minute walk from the train and bus stations. It is also about 5 minutes walk from the city center which is good for me, meaning I do not need to spend extra money when I need to go do some shopping. I live in a private accommodation which is about 12 minutes by bus from the university. This makes it quite easy to attend lectures.
The university has modern facilities for different types of games. The pitch at the Walsall campus is world-class
Support by staff is excellent. There's avenue to book appointments with lecturers through email or through SAMS. Tutors also provide constructive feedback on assignments and take an active interest in student performance. Specific feedback on assignments are provided through Canvas or by the lecturers printing out copies of the assignment and including side notes which are usually discussed openly in class.
The university is good there is plenty of support from the staff. There are lots of clubs/societies that you can partake in. The library has all you need. Great uni!!
There are always activities/events to encourage students.
The staff are very helpful.
Very good, academic staff are brilliant. There is always somewhere to go if you need counselling.
