Postgraduate Reviews of Courses at University of Cumbria

So far I am enjoying my degree especially my placements. The degree is very intense but the lecturers are very creative in the way they teach. I had some issues with the location of my placement as I moved to halls and they placed my back home this put stress on me. The is issue has now been resolved and I am looking forward to finishing my degree. read full review
good university with helpful lecturers course can be very demanding but that's the way the cookie crumbles. If you get on with people and help each other you will have a pleasant experience its all about working with different people and adapting to there needs. read full review
I was a late entrant mature student, minority ethnic status, childcare issues, disability conditions and not enough home IT to support my studies. At the entry process there was always someone to help. I came on to campus to use IT facilities to complete my pre-enrolment that would have otherwise have had to be done from home had I the IT to do it. They solved the problem

Although I have labels, I've been in a space where they have not been an issue. People just want you to overcome your barriers and succeed. I am part way through my course and I am flushed with success with my first placement over. I have had difficulties but they have been dealt with readily. read full review
It's different being a mature student but it has been a positive experience. The only thing that I have really disliked is the lack of financial support I can receive from the University. As my course involves the majority of my time being on placement, I am struggling to afford to pay rent and other bills. Some students who are on my course are eligible but for some reason, I am not. read full review
My uni experience has been great. I would say that because I am a post grad student, I have already experienced uni life before this. Carlisle is definitely somewhere where I would consider living in the future when I am a fully qualified teacher. read full review

My experience has been great- would definitely recommend to others. Everything is situated within walking distance from uni which is very handy. Great library facilities which makes it easy for students to study in peace if needed. Made lots of new friends too. Tutors are very friendly too which is nice and the student's needs are always taken into consideration. read full review

Very unorganised. Can tell it’s the first year they’ve done the SEND course. Very little knowledge of this given. They expect us all to want to be SENCO’s yet we don’t want to be and when told that they ignored our requests for different information. read full review
