My university experience has been very enjoyable so far - easily meeting my expectations. The course has been intellectually stimulating, and it has been exciting being at Here East in the Olympic Park.
The Students' Union is pretty underdeveloped in my opinion - events and societies are rare. However it is understandable that this is usually the case with postgraduate universities.
Very minimal - could be improved.
The facilities are excellent - sleek, modern rooms and spaces; WiFi coverage; food and drink availability; plenty of study spaces; and great location.
Courses are taught very well - lecturers are sector specialists who teach on engaging and relevant topics. Lectures are interactive with plenty of student debate and discussion. Classrooms are modern and most lectures are recorded too. The only negative is that lectures last 3 hours and sometimes it can be hard to maintain full concentration.
We are located in the Olympic Park which has plenty of activities and opportunities. Also students can explore the wonders of London, given we are close to Stratford tube station.
Loughborough University London does a lot to increase our employability prospects. It is incorporated within our curriculum. All students take part in the Collaborative Project where in teams we work on on real-world problems given to us by collaborating firms like Chelsea FC and WaterAid. We also take part in Skills Check - which assesses students' skill-sets and provides personal advice on ways to improve. The careers department is also very useful - providing helpful advice, consultations and advertising relevant vacancies.
I haven't yet experienced it - but the university offers plenty of personal and academic support. You can regularly meet with lecturers to discuss studies and get advice.
