The reviews below were submitted by students currently studying postgraduate courses at UK universities. Reviews contribute towards the Whatuni Student Choice Awards, which celebrate student satisfaction in higher education and offer insight into postgrad life at university.

I have gained a lot of co-curricular experience as well as academic achievement. Although I don't think it is counted as a vibrant university life, sometimes I like the quiet but ongoing student life. read full review
I enjoy my time here at the University of Chester. Everything is quite close to the city centre and students do not need to pay for any commuting. Chester is a quite friendly and beautiful city. It is so easy to go for cycling or a run nearby the city or even cross the border for some gorgeous views from the Lake District. The University supports students with different services such as Careers and Employability, Student futures, student mental health and well being and so on. Chester has definitely exceeded my expectations. read full review
I have loved my student experience at Swansea University. I left school in the 1960s but was unable to attend university due to personal circumstances but have spent my whole life regretting not being able to do so. When I discovered I could attend as a mature student I grabbed the opportunity with both hands and the learning experience has changed my beliefs, values on just about everything as well as making me aware that my prejudices were unwarranted.
I was very aware of my seniority when I started my course and was anxious about not being accepted by my fellow students. I need not have worried because there was no judgement, by staff or students, that I had no right to be part of the undergraduate group.
My experience far outweighed my expectations and my only regret is that I couldn't do it earlier in my life. read full review
I never expected to enjoy online learning as much as I am. It is incredibly flexible and I am getting the same quality of teaching as what I would if I was on campus. read full review

Allah Rakha Jatt - October 2020

Please refer to the first box. All the details lie therein. I still can't understand how this school is accredited and it is not considered a scam. What a waste of money. read full review
It has been rather dismal. The takeaway is this: in terms quality of lecture content, SOAS scores high. However, there is a high level of the incompetency, disorganisation, and overall lack of communication between the university's various departments. This one fatal flaw so much outweighs any other strengths the university may have that I would STRONGLY urge anyone thinking of applying to think twice. read full review
I think Birkbeck is out of place. Birkbeck deserves to climb the top university rankings, it's only a matter of time for it to happen anyway. Birkbeck is investing heavily in the acquisition of local new premises, in renovation and research. In a few years, Birkbeck will probably enter the top 100 of the best universities in the world, it is enough to see his progression every year. read full review
Some great scholars, but too much in fighting and lack of collaborative spirit and organization, such a shame, lots of wasted potential. You'd think that such a small institution could foster collegiality. read full review

Student Reviewer - September 2020

University- how i understand is UNIVERSE + CITY which means the learning of whole universe is available in a small city like place called university. people from different cultures, backgrounds, different style of working comes under one roof to put the best of their creativity.

Semester 1 was challenging in terms of exploring, learning and adjusting but it was fun, Semester 2 faculty helping us to understand our research questions, Hence, building confidence. But then pandemic hits. In one night flew back to my country leaving away all the belongings and dreams. just for the safety.

Everything was virtual, had to change my research, not access to equipments or limited research sources, camera shy peer don't speak in feedback sessions, network issues. money sucking accommodation.

Overall from here it was a very bad experience. read full review
I am thoroughly enjoying my return to academia, and Staffordshire University have made this as seamless a transition as possible. I am confident the way the course is organised and delivered has set me up to be successful in my studies, and that was the single biggest factor in my decision over where to pursue doctoral study. read full review
