Marking criteria depends upon ethnicity and skin colour. Courses are more focused on theory rather than practical and as an international student I felt more attention and focus is only on home students and marking them nicely . read more

The Welsh and Celtic department is amazing, and the arts centre is a calming environment when there aren't dozens of children running around. The libraries are good, especially the Physical Sciences library which needs a bit more love and attention but is otherwise peak library vibes. read more

Pros: Good value accommodation (choose Fferm Penglais) Relatively safe town - watch out for bad driving Plenty of shops and cafes in town Beautiful surrounding countryside and beach Cons: University campus is soulless at first encounter and doesn’t get much better Lectures are rushed through so you may as well just stay home and watch the lecture recordings at your own speed, to be able to learn and create decent notes Lack of engagement from the lecturer with students in the lectures, you just sit and listen to somebody read through a PowerPoint presentation, with no opportunity for questions and feedback Accommodation is soulless and you will feel incredibly isolated, even if you love peace and quiet A predatory male flat resident was reported to the Accommodation Office, and they could not take any action unless they had CCTV footage of an incident - you have to wait until someone gets assaulted on CCTV before they will do anything read more

I studied a bachelor's degree in a business department in 2017-2020, and as an international student, I really enjoyed the way teachers approached me. I was lucky enough to be assigned a very caring tutor who helped me plenty of times. Teachers, in general, were very helpful and were always trying to make sure that the class understands what's going on during or after the lecture. Lectures were published on the internal blackboard mostly on time. I want to emphasize I was not a sociable person and therefore I enjoyed a small picturesque town and its landscapes. It may be quite boring for demanding students who look for an entertainment. I had no experience with students union. Great internet in the university accommodation + immensely helpful when something gets broken. Easy to contact. The only thing I was dissatisfied was the careers service in terms of personal consultations. The careers service is strictly focused on job hunting but rarely mentions about personal development. read more
