    Overall:
    Love it!! Telford Campus is a relaxed environment, everyone is friendly and approachable, lots going on at City Campus too!
    University:
    Telford Campus is quiet so not very good for socialising, the student union could do with improving as well, but in terms of studying, the library is open 24/7 and is a good space for productivity.
    Course:
    The mentors are approachable and friendly and they want to help you, they're always on your side. Feedback is always returned to students on the date promised and support is always offered before and after receiving feedback. The course is structured in a way that is engaging and interesting without throwing too much information at you at once.
    Location:
    Telford Campus is not too far away from the town centre, there is a shop nearby and it is walking distance from a polling station.
    Accommodation:
    My accommodation is at Telford Campus. All of the rooms are all ensuite which is great as you get your own bathroom. The bedrooms are small but not too small, they're good for comfort and productivity. The showers are good. The kitchen is fairly spacious but not always the cleanest.
    Settling in:
    There are lots of freshers events taking place at City Campus, Telford Campus is smaller and quieter but there are still opportunities to meet people. Staff are helpful and friendly, they are good at giving advice eg. directions.

    Overall:
    Welcoming and friendly atmosphere. approachable tutors willing to help. plenty of on site facilities and services. easy to commute as close to local transport links.
    University:
    Plenty of societies to join and lots of facilities on site to further your experience of uni.
    Course:
    Tutors are all really approachable and friendly. The campus is easy to navigate and there are always people on hand to help you if you're unsure. Student services for FoSS and very helpful and informative.
    Location:
    Close to transport links such as the train and bus station. The campuses are all linked via university buses making location changes not a problem.
    Accommodation:
    N/A
    Settling in:
    Settled in very well, weren't pushed into groups or forced to pick groups to work with. We were allowed to mingle and form friendship groups then we could go to a cohort of our choosing so we could stay together and enjoy our time in class.

    Most of my tutors seem really approachable and they always respond to my emails in a timely way. My contact hours are quite small in comparison to some of my friends but I don't mind that because I like to study independently in the library.

    Overall:
    The University is a decent uni. There is a lot of help should you need it and always someone to talk to or ask about something if you are unsure. The city campus (where the majority of the uni is) Is all within reasonable distance and the accommodation is always closeby. There are a few options to choose from when it comes to doing something, wether you are a night person or a day person! The uni also helps you settle in quickly which is a great plus!
    University:
    Uni life is great! I'm loving it right now. I have made loads of new friends and there is always someone to do something with and some place to go to. The nice thing about staying in accommodation for me is the free gym membership, so as a athlete this is a great plus. The nightlife is also pretty decent and there are loads of student specials on.
    Course:
    My course timetable is lovely! I have 3 days of lectures with 4 days off in a row, which gives me more time to get my work done! Some of the modules were not what I had anticipated, however, I have still really enjoyed it so far. My tutors are all very helpful and understanding which takes away a lot of stress.
    Location:
    The town doesn't have much going on, it's a fairly small town. The one annoying thing is how the university campuses are split up but they do provide a free shuttle service to each site. It does get a bit tedious travelling an hour to each campus though!
    Accommodation:
    The accommodation is fairly normal I would say. Nothing too amazing but nothing too bad. I think it's pretty much what you pay for is what you get. The location is the best part being right next door to a 24 hour Asda and within walking distance to lectures.
    Settling in:
    For some reason I settled in very quickly! It took me about a week or two to adjust and after that I was right as rain!

    Overall:
    Excellent tutors and support offered 24/7 and the cours content mirrors that of the needs of students and schools
    University:
    Student union only open for a few hours a day, however the sports facilities are very good and the library offers almost everything needed
    Course:
    The pastoral care at my university is second to none, the support from my personal tutor and lead tutor has enabled me to fully participate on the course despite other barriers being presented. The contact hours are sufficient for the workload and course demands
    Location:
    Close to the town centre but far enough away that it's not constantly busy or noisy
    Accommodation:
    Adequate accommodation however repairs take a long time to be completed and issues are not resolved in a good manner
    Settling in:
    Activities ran enabled students to settle in and adjust to university life, especially when a student moved to another part of the country

    Overall:
    there has been some awful times but the uni itself is actually rather good, um really glad I came to this uni, it would have scored higher if the area surrounding wasn't so seedy and minor changes here and there were changed
    University:
    The services such as the gym are not the best quality but you get membership for free so you can't really complain, the sec (student enabling centre) are brilliant and I've found the councillors that the uni has on site to be exceptional. The nightlife is very good my favourite place to go on a night out is faces its a very large club that often has very good deals on
    Course:
    I like the content and timetable but I don't like being in such large lecture halls all the time
    Location:
    You have to go under a seedy underpass to reach the main part of city campus from the uni accommodation and the city itself isn't the nicest eithet
    Accommodation:
    The area is a little rough surrounding the accommodation I don't always feel safe walking around and the accommodation itself has its faults here and there but its pretty good overall
    Settling in:
    I settled in really fast , I was very lucky

  • Holly1712's avatar by Holly1712 on 7th October 2015
    Overall:
    I have found my university experience so far to be informative and I feel supported and comfortable. I do feel a little out of the social loop as I didn't go to uni with anyone I knew and feel that not much is done to reach out to people who don't live on halls and who don't already know somebody on the campus.
    University:
    I haven't seen much going on but the facilities are great
    Course:
    I'm loving my course so far and the staff are making me feel supported and motivated
    Location:
    I am not on the main campus, which although means I don't have as far to commute does mean that there feels like there is less going on sometimes
    Accommodation:
    I don't live in halls but from what I have seen they offer good value for money
    Settling in:
    I haven't been there long and I already feel comfortable and happy

    Overall:
    Lack of communication and support is a big negative factor. Although other subjects are better supported.
    University:
    Not heard of the welfare side of the uni just the social.
    Course:
    Lack of organisation and commuication.
    Location:
    Near good car parks etc. Good for night life.
    Accommodation:
    Looked at accommodation and was expensive for the low quality.

    Overall:
    It's a good uni, well organised, but probably not the best.

  • by Anonymous on 7th October 2015
    Overall:
    Nice people easy to talk to, the staff all seem really nice and so far the only downside is the cinemas really far away
    University:
    Haven't looked at them yet
    Course:
    Enjoy the course so far
    Location:
    All very close together haven't got to travel far all within 5min walking distance.
    Accommodation:
    I'm staying in private halls, I would give the halls I'm staying in 4 stars for size and affordability
    Settling in:
    Nice people, brought a lot of things from home to make myself feel more at home.

    I would consider elsewhere but it is good for locals
    University:
    STudent union is a bit rubbish, library should be 24 hours the whole time!
    Course:
    Placements given last minute. Expected to start the next day making student very unprofessional.
    Location:
    Walsall not so good but free bus to other campus's was fab!

    Gates and doors often broken compromising security. Takes an average of 3 days to fix things
