Postgraduate Reviews of Courses at University of Glasgow

Education (Primary) PGDE

UNIVERSITY OF GLASGOW

Student Reviewer - May 2021

I have had a great year at the University of Glasgow. My course is usually on campus Mon-Fri, 9-5 so this year it is very apparent that tutors have worked very hard to create a well thought out and engaging online course. read full review
Had i known that Covid will still be a thing post September, i would have deferred. Not remotely worth the money, even with the alumni discount. Online university is not worth the money that you have to pay for it, it is not remotely close to the experience that you get in normal times. Everything that was ever fun about the university experience was taken away, and left with just the responsibilities. read full review
Frankly speaking, my overall experience was much affected by covid /lockdown situation. The classes were interesting, but not applicable to real life structural engineering job. (I have 2 years of experience, so I know that for sure).
However, the diploma in UK is fastest way to get chartership for foreigner, besides of other benefits. Hence, I don't think that I chose wrong. read full review
Halls has been dreadful and after seeking help from welfare I had one meeting and told the follow up meeting would be in September 2021
The course has been good but so intense and hard to do it online. With other medical schools doing in person teaching, why have we not? read full review
Obviously clinical placements have taken a big hit due to the pandemic. Exposure to clinics, theatres and wards was very limited. The university however had tried their best to adapt to these hard times and to an extent they did make the learning experience in this situation more bearable. I would say that they have handled it quite well. read full review

Sustainable Energy MSc

UNIVERSITY OF GLASGOW

Cheng-Yuan - February 2021

Not delighted at all. The teaching quality of online courses is very low due to poor online teaching experience, unstable internet connection from the lecturer side, the unfamiliarity of Zoom, or even moodle. Plus, you cannot use the facilities like the library to borrow the textbooks and you need to pay extra to access the digital versions. Just a disaster. Terrible experience. I want a refund. read full review

Sociology PhD

UNIVERSITY OF GLASGOW

Anon - February 2020

Poor. Disappointing. Too much money spent on shiny new buildings and not enough on the basics: books in the library and staff pay. Employ more staff on fixed contracts and pay the staff you have for the work they do. read full review

Human Nutrition MSc(MedSci)/PgDip

UNIVERSITY OF GLASGOW

Student Reviewer - February 2020

Love it, always something to do and something going on. Glasgow is a great location despite what people say about the weather ;) The uni always has events on and is one of the most breathtaking buildings. read full review
I personally do not love university. I regret coming here sometimes, but I recognise that it is difficult getting the best experience at a traditional university. I think organisation could be better, but then again to communicate when there are thousands of students is a daunting task. Collegiate universities are better. read full review
