When you arrive at this uni its all glits and glam, but from the moment you return in your second year they really hit you hard. In my department they have introduced the merging of second and third year modules. so every year a new set of modules is up for either second or third years to partake in. but when it comes to the marking of the modules they tell you that they mark them separately but in much of my feedback in assignments and exams i get told that its not at the standard of a third year student. i am currently a second year student, being marked at a third year grade. The student union is always clean but often unorganised in its operationd. My overall expericence can be summed up in one word so far 'Meh'

Gives grants to people they determine to come from a rough area, not neccessarily poorer but rougher. Then we now have gender neutral toilets which are very itimidating

The university has some amazing staff that are willing to help with any problem faced when studying here. The town and scenery is also very beautiful.

Course review , 18/05/2017

Submitted by Anonymous on

We do not have many contact hours. I think for the money that we are paying the university, we do not get enough back. The lectures are generally ok, but some are completely unhelpful and off topic. The department itself is very disorganised as sometimes our feedback is late and any points made to improve are unclear.

I studied at Aberystwyth to do a fine art course. As much as I loved the university I felt the teaching quality lacked. The art history side of things was briliant, and certain lecturers in particular were amazing and incredibly helpful. Where the main flaw and draw back was is the tutoring and the pratical lessons, sometimes you felt left behind and you jsut did not receive enough personal attention to really grow. Feedback given was also very mixed, one minute they would be raving and th next they would ahte your work.

Course module review - Russia Since 1900, 10/03/2017

Submitted by Anonymous on

The lecturer was rather knowledgeable on his subject, although there were some mistakes in regards to certain elements, and a differing opinion could lead to a lower mark. I loved studying this module although the lecturers book was the only textbook is d in seminars and people were penalised in assessments for not citing it.
