Reviews of Postgraduate Courses

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.

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
It's been great, I love my institution (and I never thought I'd say that about an institution) It was an open and engaging space for me to grow during my BA and has been fantastically warm to return to for my postgraduate work. It nurtures some of the most amazing artistic talent and gives them the space, freedom, technical and intellectual support to really push them and has such a fantastic hit rate of producing talented makers who keep on making art. Through this I believe my Institution has had not only a great and positive impact on my life but on the life of the city of Leeds, as more bars and restaurants, clubs and studios open up around the city with a great respect for culture and full of or started by our universities alumni. read full review
Good experience, good location and experimental facilities. The Generator at Cooper Building is especially good at providing me with lots of information amd support on how to create a business. read full review

MA Graphic Design


Shannon - February 2020

My overall uni experience, has been very good. The facilities at LAU are some of the best I’ve seen. My only issues are with the taught sessions we have on the MA and if some of them are relevant to ALL of the MA students or just some, it seems to be a waste of time for a lot of us. The uni also doesn’t have an SU that has a kind of social area, it seems more like an office, there isn’t a bar or an area you can go to socialise with friends or other courses that you may not interact with otherwise. I think there could potentially be more collaboration with BA and MA courses here as they are all very talented. read full review
It hasn't been great or horrible. The professors in my department are great, but the university is generally disorganized, which requires a lot of running back and forth to get anything done. read full review
Awful. The school placements are great, because I love teaching, but that is zero to do with Chester. The uni are useless when it comes to the paperwork, they regularly just ask you to come into uni for no reason, and have no problem sending you 30 miles away for a school placement. There is a severe lack of consideration about the impact of their decisions on the students. read full review

Music PhD


David - February 2020

It is stimulating, multidisciplinary, and life-enhancing. I wish I'd embarked on academic research earlier. In general staff/PGR interaction is splendid which improves the experience. Additionally, opportunities for involvement in general university representation abound, as do opportunities to contribute to public engagement activities. read full review
I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at UEA, the city & campus are lovely-don't get put off by the initial feel of concrete! After 5yrs here I can definitely reccomend! read full review
