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.

It has been awful, even before covid. The school messed up everyone's courses, the teachers material is outdated and most are mediocre teachers or highly pretentious. The labs are rubbish, and getting help has been an absolute joke. Taking payment from students is always on time.. surprise. Every other aspect of this university has been an utter nightmare. The computing department is a joke and the school is a waste of time and money. read full review
Appalling. Would shut down the whole university if I could. No better than A level standard. Must lecturers unqualified to teach what they are supposed to. The University offers substantial fee discounts because noone would come here otherwise. read full review

UNIVERSITY OF NOTTINGHAM

Salmiah - August 2020

Excellent. Be prepared to work hard and achieve your goals at the same time enjoy the experience in the University. Join community on and of campus for wide range of places to visit. read full review
Although blended course is a great way of teaching, during a year I had been studying, it had gone worse and worse in the hands of disorganized and ineffective system/administration of the university. Usually, it felt like I was studying in a 'Mickey Mouse University'.

However, all had begun so well with the induction and first module. But recurrence of the same issues, unwillingness to find solutions despite your constructive behaviour, decreasing quality of enrolled students/campus lectures and inappropriate attitude of some staff led to lots of lost time and ineffective education.

In the end, it seems like they have accepted some of their faults recently about not hearing the voice of their students. I hope they could improve their quality assurance as the university promise a great potential in fact. read full review
Great course prepping me for the industry and being job ready, I was less bothered about the uni environment since this was a postgrad course but good cohort and friendly individuals around campus. read full review

COVENTRY UNIVERSITY

Sarah Smith - July 2020

My university experience has made me feel like I am achieving something and has been largely enjoyable. Unfortunately the experience has been very disrupted due to covid-19, however I don’t feel that this reflects on the university and I am hopeful that I will be able to pick up where I left off in September. read full review
Firstly, my interview time was wrong so I turned up to my interview for placement LATE. Great start and now my details have been hacked in a security breach. The organisation of the university is horrendous. I know a student who did not get the bus pass as promised and had to pay a lot of money for travel after consulting the university for months. Poor. Poor. Poor. Would not reccowmend. read full review

Not much to do at Lincoln, absolute boring. Society isnt so great nor sports. Good university buildings but lecture/services aint up to par, need good design tutors for ma interior and architecture design. BA IAD are much better than MA IAD read full review
Terrible postgraduate experience. Have run into problems academically and lifestyle-wise from beginning to end. University shows ZERO regard for its students welfare, and its pretty apparent that they are used as cash cows, especially international students. Avoid this university. read full review
