Nothing much happens on campus, there’s only one good night in the week to go out which is a Wednesday and apart from that we mainly stay in the flat or just in our own rooms. The weekends are the worst, most people go home as they live nearby so it’s a complete ghost town and those that are still here are again stuck with nothing to do unless you have a job. The WiFi is poor and always disconnects every 10 minutes. The only good thing is the style of the accommodation as it is very new and the sports village which has a good gym and pool. As far as societies and sports clubs go there aren’t many to choose from and most societies are aimed at the international students, since that is the majority Of the population here. London is only half an hour away on the train but being a student you can’t really afford trips there all the time.
There is rarely anything going on on the campus, only one really good night at the Forum on a wednesday but the rest of the week everyone is bored and spend most of our time just in the flat. The weekends are the worst, most people go home as they live nearby and it’s like a ghost town. Nothing happening in Hatfield town either, just the galleria shopping centre. Only good thing is the sports village which has good facilities and the fact that London is only half an hour on the train but being a student means trips to and from London aren’t something you can do every week. I am leaving at the end of first year because I feel spending 2 more years here would be a waste of time and money.
The exam papers are an absolute disgrace with trick questions and errors. Resulting in failure. They ramble on in some papers and don't cover the range some not even what your taught. No practical sessions instead you use simulator software WIFI Is dreadful the only books are obsolete osx ones. Nothing related to assignments if an assignment is late its capped, deadlines aren't well spaced. This 4 computer science other than the above its nice/nice campus
Avoid, specifically the nursing degree. There are plenty of resources at the library to help with pass the course, nevertheless, the subjects are not adequate nor well organised. For instance, there are not enough simulation hours to practice nursing skills, instead, we spend time in the classroom discussing dignity/empowerment or learning theories. I understand that the course is 50% theory and 50% practice but it is frustrating to invest and sit in a classroom to discuss learning theories when it is not directly applicant to day to day nursing skills. What my peers normally ask and I also agree is that if a patient is having a cardiac arrest, how knowing about Jean Piaget's theory will help them to respond to that situation? The point is, they should give focus to what is important for nurses. Discuss the latest treatments and teach them detailed ecg interpretation , blood results reading and vice versa. AVOID period.
It is a great university with a highly motivated management. However, the local council and the city center needs fresh energy. The university should also fight for the Oxford - Cambridge expressway to be renamed as Universities corridor and go through Bedfordshire and Hatfield University to give an impetus to these two universities as well.
University of Hertfordshire Optometry A quick review of the University. The course is not organised the lecture are not to a professional standard and the lectures are very intimidating and constant have let us down with mistakes in exams to missing out lectures. Also the pre reg is not great they promised us that we are able to do pre reg at home and they have constant lie to us Save your self the stress and do not attend this university they put in rules mid way through the university and change a great deal of the modules. Do not apply here and i am someone who regrets my decision. We dont get any help and they do not care about your wellbeing
University of Hertfordshire has great services such as the SU. There are always events and things to do including colour runs, treasure hunts and nights out! The facilities are also good, including a Sports Village, LRC and SU Shop. I found the careers service helpful for interview prep etc. and from an academic side there is always support from CASE classes. At UH you won't get bored and are supported!
I love my uni, the LRC is great and the people there are really helpful. If I'm doing projects and need help they can always find what I need. I live on campus and it's great having everything here, there's even a pharmacy and a doctors. I'm a student ambassador too so help out at open days and that gets me a bit of extra cash. On my course I can do a year abroad and I can't wait for that next year, well, have to get through this one first. The best thing is the atmosphere, it's really inclusive, warm and helpful. I've found some new friends and I love that.
The university of Hertfordshire has amazing facilities- including a sports village, LRC and an engaging Student Union! There are also loads of societies including Archery, Rugby, dancing etc so you can't get bored around here! The academic support is also very good such as CASE classes to help improve your writing and many other skills. Additionally, the careers office are very helpful by helping you prep for interviews, review your CV and cover letter etc. At UH you are not alone!
The facilities of the University is great! Most professors are really helpful and what the best for you. A sports club is worth it (expensive tho) But adds a little entertainment in your life and friendly people. Or any society clubs as Hatfield is soooo boring you should look into clubs and societies. The forum life is great from what all my friends say. The LRC can be loud at times because of students who only came to the university to look man or woman. And yes the WiFi is horrible!!! But lastly it's a decent University and I will recommend it coming from a computer science student.
Haven't had an issues with the university so I cant comment. Wi-Fi cant cope with the load and sometimes completely goes down with no warning for as few hours. Kind of a problem if you're trying to hand in ort get work down.
The wifi in the College Lane LRC is horrendous, the connection is intermittent at best and too slow to work with. They will supply you with an ethernet cable if you ask, however your luck will be in if the port on the desk actually works. It feels like the LRC maintenance budget has been completely stripped, else it is visible that there has been complete negligence for service quality checks from the university. Although a lot of new accommodation is available, it is well outside the living budget of any student without parental financial assistance. It is most clear to see that management have set a precedent for new buildings to be built and to ignore any maintenance of existing facilities.
okay let me be clear. the wifi does not work 90 percent of the time. De hav is full of roadmen and stinks of weed..if you go to the de hav library at after 9pm its like a south London council estate..The canteen s decent. the girls will not bang unless your a roadman..if you want to go to the slums go to this uni..
Avoid this university if you are serious about study. The university invests its time and resources into shiny new buildings and state of the art facilities, but what good is any of that if the courses and teaching available inside is next to useless?? (I would go into more detail on how poor some of the courses are here, but there is a word limit. Other than the farce that is teaching at this university student attitude towards study is a joke. For example you find students speaking in London Chav slang strutting in and out of the law building. Then you have these amazing library facilities utterly ruined by loud and aggressive behaviour from individuals treating it as a common room of sorts. If you don't want to study why go to the library? Overall its up to you, but you are worth a lot more than this place. To close this review imagine an 18-21yr old throwing a chair at their mate inside the library, this behaviour is not uncommon.
Nothing to do in hatfield , forum is terrible and fire alarm kept going off and ending the nights half way through , only shops are a drive or bus away , gym is good but expensive , lots of t*** who play american football and think theyre in the nfl
Being in my final year, I've really enjoyed my time at University and I'll miss the student life. I won't miss Hatfield as it's very quiet and there isn't much to do off campus. However this makes student accommodation off campus very affordable for most students.
Absimal Wifi, the worst place for it is in the LRC which is the most important place to have it surely. The food is expensive, the rooms are extortionate and almost £50 more a week than almost all housing off campus.
accomodation is quite expensive and hot water keeps going off.. fantastic. WiFi is pretty shocking for a uni campus and there isnt much on campus to do .. and 6 washing machines between like 4000 students isnt exactly ideal. I've live in maclean court for nearly 2 months now and our launderette still isnt open, neither is the common room...
I don't think it's fair that the wifi is turned off during holidays - this happened over Christmas break & one of my flat mates, who's an international student couldn't contact his family over Christmas. Also, the LRC being closed on bank holidays isn't fair, we pay every week to stay so we should be able to access all facilities.
The college lane campus is the social hub and, even if you study on Dehav, is definitely the place to be in freshers if you want to have the optimal study and party experience. Dehav has a more relaxed, mature atmosphere on the other hand. Both campuses have excellent sports facilities and a conveniently located.
