2022 WUSCA winners
Best aspect is great socials sports and societies and enjoyable courses only downside would be lack of information online and student support
A lot of contact time and decent facilities some lecturers could be better
Only downside is it’s expensive but what a amazing city and better night life than expected
If your coming to YSJ chose central it’s better than all the other university accommodations and well worth the extra money
enjoying the uni life so far.
They provide you with a variety of faculties, like computers, books, study spaces, etc. And location is beautiful during summer time! Although, the university could have some better things in place for students who can’t complete a specific part of their course (i.e. study abroad, work experience, etc) due to personal reasons.
Course is full of content, interesting content too! I definitely prefer being back in face-to-face classes now, since I spent my entire first year studying online at home, which I hated.
Great teachers, very helpful with anything you could need help with. Very Inclusive school and courses are very informational.
Very informational and great content covered and lots of hand on time with equipment!
The location is great as it is only 5 minutes away from city centre. There’s plenty of support if you need it whilst at university. There’s plenty of places for you to study whilst on campus if you want to. Campus has a few places where you can eat with your friends and even grab a drink in the SU.
There has been several times where I have emailed lecturers and never had a response which is not great. When we were being taught online, the lessons were purely the PowerPoint, they didn’t talk about anything other than what was wrote on the slides therefore there was no need to attend lessons when you were meant it.
There is plenty of nightlife for students. Then there is plenty of jobs which students can apply for as a part time job.
It is a lot of money a week for what you get however the location was practically in the centre so it made up for it
The campus is fairly small which makes the university life a lot more intimate!
The course overall is very enjoyable however there aren’t enough work experience opportunities on course and there is tech issues within a studio setting
+ Really lovely place, small campus so easy to get around, close to the city to go anywhere, good canteen for food - Not much student support for those who are commuting, not anywhere near enough accommodation, some system failures when you can’t log your attendance etc
+ Lots of contact time, lots of recap on the content primary schools will be teaching the children and lots of focus on pedagogy and how to teach - Timetable changes all the time, some days are 1 hour lectures only, some tutors don’t let you know they’ve cancelled workshops until either the day or very shortly before they’re due to start
Brilliant lecturers and a great wide range of modules from ancient times to more modern. plenty of extra curricular opportunities and support from both the facility and the SU. beautiful location and the old building is magical. best 3 years of my life
Placement module was during coronavirus lockdown so was unable to do a placement. otherwise the rest of the facilities and faculty are great
Not very diverse
