Writtle University College

Certificate of Higher Education in Horticulture

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

Writtle was once a prestigious institution that commanded respect if you attained a qualification there. Now it is just a name. The students are generally friendly, the staff (non lecturers) are helpful and friendly. I experienced racism, homophobic comments and just general derogatory comments made about not only other staff but also my fellow students from the course lecturers. One horticulture lecturer, which for the point of this rant lets just pretend he is a turf specialist. Had an eye for the students, the younger female ones. Labeled himself the uncle and the one to go drinking with during trips. Also used to like spending time in favourite female students tents. Very huggy and touchy feely. The ritz (Canteen as certainly not good enough to be called much more) is horrendous and I managed to get food poisoning on three occasions in 1year. The library is well stocked, the grounds are magnificent and well worth the visit.

This past year has been difficult and I'm not entirely sure that we should be paying our full fees for barely being able to attend uc, I feel like I've not taken in as much this past year and have really struggled with this form of "long distance" learning.

not much to do to have fun. Other students aren't very social (expect a very small friend group). Fine if you like to sit in your room alone all the time.
