I am only in first year however, so far strikes from the UCU have impacted us greatly. Initially, a week of strikes in 2019 didn't seem a huge issue, although they caused us to miss basically a whole module of teaching. The new upcoming strikes are for almost 4 weeks. Although those modules missed may not be examined it is still questionable as to whether we are missing out on what we are paying for, and knowledge we may need in the future.
It is beneficial that the lectures are recorded and posted onto learning central as sometimes it is difficult to hear a lecturer or keep up with the pace.
Tutors did not send over mine and other students details to purposefully not let us access materials and be able to prepare for class. My personal tutor threatened me that the law world in Cardiff is very small. Bullying and intimidation was encouraged between students and by lecturers on the course. I do not have a legal job and I have never had a legal role and have not been assisted to do so. I was spiked with GHB April 2019. Lorna Lewis the lecturer said they should do it again as I did well in class. I have demyelination of the brain and spinal chord as well as lesions to C3 and C4 as a result and it was because I was spiked by an ex Cardiff University student who works as a landscape gardener for Cardiff University. A 2nd attempt was made on my life using GHB February 2020 involving the best friend of the Mayor of Cardiff Dan D eth , James P Davies who played at his inauguration and is married to Rebecca Crump who was my criminal law lecturer and is a criminal defence lawyer
