Fantastic....and believe me i have attended 3 different Universities.
I can honestly say i would have gained my MSc without the University staff and academics..who go the extra mile to help the students read full review
the overall experience so far is best for me. i am able to learn new courses that will help me in professional life and i got a chance to re live university life after a gap of 13 years read full review
Loved it, very supportive, friendly! Sense of community! Get stuck into classes to make the most of your time. Each campus has a totally different feel so make sure you explore all of them read full review

Biochemistry MSc

UNIVERSITY OF HULL

Mara - February 2020

My experience, comparing to my Bachelor (University of Bucharest, Romania) is obviously a good one. But the Uni is very unorganised and the timetable is always a mess. Since my MSc Biochemistry module is in its first year, they didn't manage to include us ( we are 3 people at this module) very well in their academic planning. So, we do what others do, but I cannot see a very clear direction for our academic plan. read full review
I love university life, my subject & would love to commit to studying for a Doctorate too, but there are just too many financial implications & it is far too difficult to get the required reading done for masters seminars with a 4 year old. I should have waited until he was older, as its not achievable alongside caring responsibilities, work (i currently have 2 part-time jobs) or constant job searching as in year 1. I may enter an EdD in my 50s (over 5 years away) when he is older & I have re-qualified as a Teacher as I could get a bursary for a PGCE. The reading load is fine if you're 24/5, Chinese & have no commitments in the UK other than studying while living on / near campus, but not otherwise & we study the units at the same pace 200 hrs in 10 weeks per unit, should be a separate part-time programme with 20 weeks per unit for part-timers with caring responsibilities or a job. read full review
Fantastic! I risked a lot to start the program and so far I have learned a lot and everyone has been supportive. Although I would have had liked to have access to more up-to-date equipment I still feel I will gain a lot from the program to take into my professional life and beyond. read full review
Overall my university experience has been fantastic. I'm glad I chose Aberystwyth I've made lifelong friends with people from all over the world. I've tried new sports, joined random societies and really thrown myself into the experience. I've conducted empirical research as part of my undergrad and am now taking on a whole new subject that is super interesting. Aberystwyth is one of the best universities in the country and I'd recommend to anyone that they should go there. read full review

Law and Management MBA

BANGOR UNIVERSITY

Eunice - February 2020

In Bangor University I made amazing friends which helped be the best of myself through volunteering as a peer guide, intl student ambassador hence I found a home away from home. Thank you Bangor read full review
Overall, I really love Bangor Uni. There's just so much to enjoy here and never a moment of dullness. The people here are nice and polite as well. And it's always easy to get help for whatever reason if u needed it. read full review
The university is quite un-organised for part-time students which is a shame as most of us are working and need the extra support and care about the timings of exams, tutorials and quality of teaching. So far the university have sent incorrect student details to me and are really late in confirming any sort of timetabling. The teaching overall is good, but some of the teachers aren't. read full review
