There needs to be more support from student services. My experience was not pleasant.

The university has absolutely no sense of preparation or organisation. Often leaving students out of the loop until the last moment but moaning at students when they themselves have not been organised is an often reoccurrence. It often seems as if the uni forgets the students pay to be there! With many members of staff treating students with no respect! Would not recommend this uni!!

Course review , 12/05/2017

Submitted by Anonymous on

The modules involved on this course are both interesting but also useful. I believe the information I have been taught will help me when I have a job in marketing. The lecturers are very helpful, however I find that if you don't attend the lecturers will not have time for you and won't help you. I have enjoyed this course, i've made lifelong friends and I find the course very interesting.

I had a great experience at the university overall and made some fantastic friends. The halls of residence were nice, I was lucky enough to land myself an en-suite self catered room.

The course itself wasn't great. The resources were not good at all for any media student hoping to work in the industry. No radio station, magazine or newspaper...

I thoroughly enjoyed this course as I really liked the other students, some teachers (Robert Taffurelli, Nina Jones etcetera) and the media side of things. The library is well stocked and the online system to reserve books is easy to use. The printing system is easy to use across all libraries and the set-up of the campus I was on was easy to get around (Cyncoed). The on-sight gym is quite good and conveniently situated by the halls of residence for first years.

Course module review - Strategic Management, 04/05/2016

Submitted by Anonymous on

The lecturer is poor and incredibly rude when replying to emails which have legitimate questions. Subject content is pretty dull. Going to lectures doesn't seem to enhance learning more and it could just be done sitting in my room looking at the lecture slides. Very demoralising getting limited feedback in the essays and then when asking for support getting a ride response.
