Good but not happy with the understanding in our department. University should be organised amd always have back up staff incase staff are ill or leave unexpectedly
Career development week and cpd embedded within the course
Alot of practical, not enough staff
I love uni, making the most of every opportunity availible. Definitely the best decision i ever made. Having been to a few open days, and got to know the layout of uni has been beneficial.
Have built on existing skills and extended knowledge base.
Psychology is very informative and interesting. I think the foundation year could cover acedemic study skills better. Especially as i have dyslexia.
In theory excellent, in practice its ok.
Good i am enjoying studying at university the university of Wolverhampton. Everything is very good staff is very helpful and supportive. Students are also good
Most I like is the teaching methods Least is the number of classes are less
The university teaching, lecture and course is good. They seem to be lacking in the emotional support but since the contact hours are low you can find other ways outside of the university to get support.
Work placements and career development week are times when you can try out new things or take courses.
Lectures tend to know you more personally. The degree can be tailored so you write assignments on your interests, there is some freedom over what you can write about
I do not feel the most represented. I feel your lecturers know you more and will be willing to listen to any issues.
The library is easy to use and books can be transferred between campuses. The campus shop on Walsall campus is very small considering there is not other shops within a small walk
Walsall campus is about 10 minutes from the small town of Walsall. There is not much in that area but more in wolverhampton and Birmingham which are not too difficult to travel to.
A few societies and lots of sport at Walsall
Lectures do give feedback and one to one sessions. My personal tutor has never checked up on me, only met them when being taught by them. There are counselling services available but I do not feel very supported.
I'm in my third year and I both happy and sad to finish. I'm happy that undergrad is nearly behind me but I'm sad aswell. I've grown fond of my cohort and teaching staff and although I'm looking forward to the new opportunities my degree will afford me (If I'm lucky, but thats more to do with lack of social mobility than it is with the Uni) I'll be sad to see the back of this place that has been my second home for nearly 3 years.
There is careers development week which hosts a whole load of activities aimed at employability. There are also other sessions held throughout the year preparing students for the labour market through skills and continued professional development. There is also an employability award which is embedded into the curriculum which all students have access to immediately.
Most - lecturers have practical knowledge and experience and add depth to teaching where theory meets practice with relevant examples. Least- The teaching groups can be quite large which can lead to students being disruptive.
The SU at Wolverhampton University is AMAZING. They run a HUGE variety of sessions and activities for students. The advice and representation centre is second to none for it's advice and support. The academic representation structure works effectively throughout the university and the use of School Reps is ahead of the game for student voice representation.
Fairly good, all issues are resolved quickly.
Absolutely. It is a short bus ride (Free campus bus) to Walsall town centre. City campus is based in Wolverhampton city centre and is less than a 5 minute walk away from the high street.
There is LOADS of sports activities/events at Walsall Campus and City Campus. There are also lots of socieities (over 50 i believe) and there are student staff who organise drop ins and society training.
Although I've never had to use the counselling and wellbeing services myself, I've heard that there are long waiting lists (between 3 and 6 months depending on which campus you're on). The bereavement counselling I believe is four 45-minute sessions which personally I don't think would help me recover from dropping a cake on the floor let alone the loss of a loved one. Tutors are integrating more with digital services which widens their engagement with students -which is great. There is also a booking system to book appointments with tutors.
The overall uni experience has been difficult. From the beginning I have had to learn the course, the way of how the uni works and academic writing with no guidance. Being a distance learning is very difficult, which I excepted but at least thought there would be more guidance than I had.
I am already working.
*We have limited lesson which is hard to understand what the lecturer is getting across in writing.
Haven't had much contact. As I am outside the university it is seen as something I wouldn't be interested in.
They are okay. However, it is a bit strange in a business school that there are extremely limited places to charge your laptop.
It isn't in the best of places as there is no parking. The local surrounding aren't the best either.
I want to get involved with these. However, as I am not full time. I don't get to hear about any of there. This is a real shame as I would love to be involved.
So far I am happy just for some exceptions. They split one of the modules for two and I am not happy because those studens are just naughty and keep talking in the middle of lectures. Otherwise everything is fine
Not so much I registered and asked and they just told me they'll let me know and nothing
I prefer field trips and I. Tourism preferably trips to abroad
I don't know
Not very well. There is not basically anything I would be interested in.
One word. Regret. I wished I worked freelance as everything I have learned I already knew. Overall very disappointed with the tutors due to them favouring over students over other students due to their gender, age and background.
Nothing! Absolutely nothing! No support, no help and they don't care. Better off getting an apprenticeship.
That we got free pizza one time... If anything the tutors act like they are our friends... Even though they laugh at students work amongst themselves.
Wack! They tell you to sign up... Even though they don't enforce the suggestion the students come up with
Lol what facilities. Half of the macs have got no keyboards or mouses. That's says alot.
No there's no chance as they have favourites before you sign up
No good at all. I have been at this university for 3 years and not once have they asked me how I feel about the course, my mental health and other feedback about my wellbeing. Very poor from a university which says they care about mental health. I get better counselling from my PT.
i think this is the best university because the university always go a above and be on to may sure have have a great university experience. i have regular update my module and event that would interest me. i have meet some incredible people that as truly inspire me to follow my dreams .
they have lot of job opportunity posted on their website regularly and they help you with cv and cover letter when apply for a job
the teacher is very helpful but some time you have to wait a long time for you result which can be stressful
they are always happy to help and support you and any concern . one of the best group of people to chat at university
i am very good in access their facilities
the university is in a perfect location for me
they have excellent societies and sport. very welcoming and nice people to get to know .
they have a excellent support system that continue to help
So far my educational experience has been wonderful. I feel my personal growth has extended beyond what I have been learning about in the classroom. I am loving my time as a student!
The uni offers on-campus work opportunities, works with employers to advertise employment opportunities, and has a really extensive careers department. I've also heard talks at the university given by this department and by lecturers who brought in alumni to talk about their career paths, which was wonderful. We have Career Development Week as well, which is like a weeklong convention of a ton of great events and activities that can help with employability but also offer personal enrichment!
My lecturers are exceptional and passionate and so knowledgeable. And it often happens--I think unintentionally!--that material in one module can be related to the material of the other modules I am taking, even if they are not really related. The intersections are fascinating and fun and make for a really cool educational experience.
The Students' Union facilities are comfortable and welcoming and they offer some great spaces and resources for students. They do a lot of work with student representation but I am not always sure the response from students is very good, so I think they may want to work on engagement.
Very good! The buildings are modern and well-kept. The technology used around the campus has always been good. They are often making updates around the campus to better meet the needs of the students.
Yes! I am able to reach my campus easily by train; other students take the bus and there are university buses for students to get around campus and to other campuses. It's also very walkable. The central campus is located right next to the town center and also a large grocery store so I can run errands before or after lectures--or just have some "me" time!
Pretty good variety of societies! I was actually able to start one myself in my first year and the Students' Union has been very supportive.
The academic support is excellent; my lecturers have always made themselves available to students before, during, and after lessons. We are assigned personal tutors so we can meet with someone to discuss our progress. I've never had an email or phone call go unanswered. I personally have had a mostly-good experience with the personal mental health counselling offered at the university but they have recently cut back on the support that is being offered and I know of many people who have been negatively affected by this and/or had negative experiences because of it. I do think University of Wolverhampton needs to do better in terms of this type of support, especially as conversations about mental health are becoming much more prevalent and the spotlight is shining on uni students and the pressures and stresses they are experiencing.
