University is cosy and helpful. Any help I need, I know exactly where to go and that the help will be given. The only downside is the size. Would like the uni bigger and more places to just spend free time. Also, the uni bar should be back

I’ve loved my time at University. I study mechanical engineering which is amazing fun. We get the chance to be practical whenever possible which I personally thrive on. The facilities for and engineering student are fantastic, with the flight simulator being my personal favourite. The union is very active, and with a desk at each campus they’re very easy to get in touch with. If you’re not on campus they’re very good at replying to emails and the website is easy to navigate.

Course review , 05/01/2018

Submitted by isabella rido on

I did a BA honours in Graphic Design and I would not recommend this university at all. 

The tutors obviously have favourites and unless you are one of them or unless you are caucasian you are very likely to receive a low final grade, even if your work is exceptional. How they managed to get away with this is beyond me but lucky you find work based on your portfolio and not your grade for graphic design. 

The building and facilities are very outdated, and there is hardly ever any space in the studio to work, even if there is it is very crammed and noisy and awkward.

I actually would give my degree 4.5 stars, but I've rounded it up to 5 because you can't do halves here!
The tutors are on the whole, very helpful and understanding, they have so much experience and talent themselves and can constantly give ideas which add an edge to a project, or recommend an artist to look up.
The resources on offer are also good, although you must buy a lot of the materials- but the workshops for digital work come with loads of software, and there's an online service if you want to learn something quite niche in your own time, which is super helpful.

Course module review - Complexities of Service Provision in Nursing (Children's Nursing), 23/05/2016

Submitted by Anonymous on

This module is the most interesting so far, the focus is on caring for children in the intensive care setting and caring for children with complex needs in and out of hospital. It is a mixture of lectures and seminars and has been very interesting!
