12 Biology reviews at Aberystwyth University


Student Review: 3 /5

Life Sciences (4 years), BSc Hons

By member962943 On 17th October 21

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 Lectures are only 45 minutes and the lecturers sometimes struggle to use the software, which can often lose 10 minutes of lecture time 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 Foundation year is advertised for those who lack the necessary qualifications for the degree schemes, however they expect you to understand A-level content in your first week Limited support from university for students who are doing a foundation year to help them get back into education No support for mature students

Only been in the uni for one semester, but as long as you like biology you'll be sure to like the first year.

Course is VERY intense, I have 9ams every day, some days with 3 lectures and a 4 hour practical. That being said, I think this course at this uni is one of the most rigorous and relevant in the field. Aber's at the forefront of international research, often our lecture material included brand new research from the uni itself, taught by lecturers who conducted it. The access to incredible landscapes is unparalleled, even walking to lectures through penglais woods is incredible. There's masses of support from student wellbeing, careers advisers, personal tutors and course/module coordinators. Facilities are of good quality, some brand new, some just standard, but never lacking. I have found this course very strenuous though, and dealing with mental health issues at the same time, I've found it very hard to keep up with the pace
