Hey, currently looking at oxford Brookes for sport and exercise science and was wondering if anyone (preferably current students not the ambassadors) has any reviews or opinions on the uni. Specifically looking at teaching quality, student support etc.

There’s some pretty horrific reviews on other websites and here so have gotten a bit worried about the uni as a whole so hopefully someone can offer some insight.
Thank you!

Hi,

I am a current student at Oxford Brookes and am going into my 3rd year studying Adult Nursing, so I can not comment on Sport and Exercise Science, however there is a lot of information on the website about the course which you can see using this link; https://www.brookes.ac.uk/courses/un...ercise-science

I can tell you that even through this pandemic, the teaching has been ok, it has been hard for all to adjust so quickly so we have all had to learn as we went along. It is more convenient having online teaching as it does mean that if you are isolating or shielding, you do not have to miss out or defer.

I have hidden disabilities and am a mature student and can not fault the help and support that I have received from the staff not only at our Swindon campus (were I attend) but online and telephone support from the Oxford Campus teams.

I have also used the Student Support services and they have helped me with all my enquiries or directed me to someone who can help if they can't.

The only other service I have used is the centre for academic development, which was a big help with my academic writing as I hadn't done this since I left school in 2000!

I hope that this helps and please feel free to ask any other questions.

Re the quality of Oxford Brookes, my comment would be ...avoid at all costs. Incompetent admin, lazy lecturers, invisible support. Enough said. My son has just finished his second year doing engineering and he is thinking of switching to Derby for his final year and then an MSc. OB was sold to us on the quality of its workshops and labs but they have remained closed all year - even though many other universities opened up their facilities back in January. Also, they were supposed to move all the maths and engineering facilities from Wheatley campus (old and decrepid) to the main campus two years ago, but this hasn;t happened. So, when lectures and workshops finally open up, my son will have to spend two hours a day on buses (Note: the first bus in the morning is alwways late so everyone misses the first 20 mins of the lecture!). As I said, send your son or daughter elsewhere
