Postgraduate Reviews of Courses at Newman University, Birmingham

Given that it was severely disrupted by the pandemic, I feel it was a good experience overall and would recommend the uni.

It would have been nice to have made use of the campus facilities as they looked great on our single day physically at uni, particularly given tuition fees, as unfortunately due to the pandemic our lectures were all on Zoom despite being a practical based course (teacher training), and to have been able to meet other students in person.

However, the lectures were useful, tutors were supportive and I had a great placement school. I think in a 'normal' year the experience would be even better. read full review
I have really enjoyed the year at uni, tutor has made some very difficult decisions but they are always the right ones. She does her job very well and it has been a pleasure to have her guidence this year.

The only downfall was due to the covid restrictions I do not believe that the university teaching side has been made good value for money as there has been no face to face teaching, while I accept and agree that it is out of their control and they have done the best they can with the restrictions, I do believe it has hindered some peoples success. Technical issues being one of them. read full review
Overall the university has made lots of effort to help students, I think they have done a good job in helping students with online learning, accessing facilities and mental health support. read full review
I am a part time student, studying alongside my job as a teacher. The course so far has been informative and incredibly interesting. Above all, Newman has given me the confidence to study for my Masters with my well being at the heart of their practice. As a result, I am a more reflective and assured practitioner with a developing understanding of the education sector- allowing me to pick modules that build a qualification that suits my career goals.
I cannot fault Newman and am very proud to be part of their student faculty. read full review
My overall experience has been pretty negative. The lectures were not engaging and often dragged on for too long without actually teaching any relevant information. The lecturers did not keep tabs on our progress or try to contact us at all through the semesters. One module changed the lecturer after the first session and another module changed the lecturer half way through the semester. The inconsistency made it difficult to know who was teaching what or who should be contacted regarding assignments. read full review
Certainly been very difficult and different due to covid but still throughly enjoyed it and been given many opportunities to become a better person and I feel confident I can make more progression throughout the remainder of the year read full review
