Overall Rating

The university experience has been great. The course I am on means that I am not really in university a lot of the time, however, I have had no problems with the university so far.

Student Union

I haven’t really got involved with the student union because I live off campus and with doing an intensive course, I am on placement in the week and catching up on work and assignments on the weekend.

Clubs and Societies

I haven’t really experienced it on this course but I have been an undergraduate student and the clubs were okay, good enough to have a late night dance with friends. The societies are a great way to meet new people.

Uni Facilities

The facilities are excellent. The catalyst building is much better for the students needs than the old library and much nicer to work in. The Hub is a great area to socialise and plenty of options for dinner.

Course and Lecturers

I like that we are not in uni as much and we are actually experiencing the job and learning from other teachers. I like the support you get on all sides to be able to grow as a teacher and build my confidence.
Sometimes I feel the some of the Friday sessions could be changed to something that is more useful for us at the time rather than be taught something that would only be relevant when we have a job in teaching and our own classes.

City Life

The city life is great. Lots of things to do in the city and an easy place to meet friends and family for a catch up.

Job Prospects

As part of the course I need to have two placements. For me so far, the experience of receiving my placement has been good and organised. The careers department have also been in to talk about applications and about the facilities that are in place for them to help us with the process. Overall, I feel this will all help me to get a job.

Student Support

The support it good. I feel that if I have any problems my tutors will help me solve them. I feel if I am struggling on my course that there will be a solution. On a personal level, I haven’t needed any support through the university so I wouldn’t be able to comment.
