DO NOT EAT AT THE REFECTORY GOOD LORD IT'S ATROCIOUS. The SU could do with a little more outreach? and the way that the societies were organised at freshers this year was atrocious too. but yeah overall pretty good
Small campus which is sometimes a good thing but also can be a horrid thing. Opportunities are very limited and when they do come around, they get snapped up so quickly! There is a lot of favouritism around the SU and other parts of the Uni. The buildings are very old, smelly and not that nice. One great thing is the amazing support at the Student Advice department, they help so much and are the best! No connections with outside organisations and other Universities, some staff are amazing, some aren't which I guess is what you get! There aren't enough spaces for students to rehearse etc.
If I could give the SU less than one star, I would. All of the "officers" in the SU are horrible people that belittle you for just walking into the Students Union. I avoid the Students Union at all costs because of this. Facilities aren't great, WiFi is pretty much non-existent in our department and the only thing that is saving my university experience is my course which is, funnily enough, being cut once my year has graduated.
Although the facilities on campus are good I feel that the SU could be improved to make it somewhere I would think about going in the evening for a drink with friends, it sometimes feels a bit 'clicky' with SU related people. There's a really good range of clubs and societies to join.
The campus is small and there's mostly girls so if you're looking for a boyfriend then you'll have to look at quack/props at the engine shed with UoL because there's limited choice at BG. The SU is average, it has a bar and does some events but they're not that exciting. The sports societies aren't bad - they go compete. There's a gym on campus but there's a bigger leisure centre with a swimming pool about 5 minutes away with much better facilities. The refectory restaurant and curiousitea cafe are nice for lunch and aren't that expensive. The SU does chips and burgers etc apparently but I've never tried it.
The campus itself is good, though events going on always seem to be pretty limiting, usually geared towards first years with parties, or drama student performances. With campus open to the public, that gets frustrating at times too when wanting to get a quick drink or something to eat between lectures on campus.
student Union is good it's just a bit small and cheesy. The societies are rubbish most of them. The facilities around campus are mostly good apart from it would be nice if there was a little shop of you ever needed supplies and also the washing machines are quite annoying as you have to only use £1 and 50p coins.
It's a small university but still so many things to do! There's a big focus on people who don't like clubbing therefore the student union are constantly doing things, a mixture of quizzes, bingo and parties. The student Union executives are volunteers and work super hard! The library on campus is incredible, the children's library section is so inspirational and helpful when planning activities for placement. My only small complaint is the wifi, it's slow which is understandable considering the amount of people it has to cater for. However the accommodation team have listened to student's complaints and are in the process of installing new wifi. My favourite thing about BGU being small is the amount of people I have met, everyone is so friendly!
My time at university was, on the whole, great! Lincoln is a lovely city. Plenty of shops, great nightlife and a beautiful historical part, up the hill. I had to resit my 2nd year for personal reasons, and the university fully supported me during this. The library has fantastic resources, and if books aren't available they will happily order them in for you. The S.U is somewhere you can always go to have a good time. They hold really good events during the week and are also a great source of support. My course was Drama in the Community which suited me down to the ground. There were plenty of opportunities for extra curricular activities which always helps to make you stand out from the crowd in terms of employment. Being a drama student at BG meant you had an extra family as the department is fairly small, and everyone looks out for one another. I am now employed as a TA in a primary school. I'm so glad I spent 4 years at this university.
BGU has the ability to be an amazing institution, however the students and the staff have a very different vision for the future of the university. The university as a whole spend far too much money on the retail area and not enough on things that directly affect students education.
Lovely, small university with an amazing library but unorganised staff and courses. Admin not dealt with efficiently and lectures etc constantly being changed at short notice. Wifi in halls is rubbish (although I think it's being changed) and wifi on campus not much better. Student union could do with a bigger bar as many people are turned away due to there not being enough space- especially during freshers.
Wifi was terrible, however, we got the provider changed towards the end of the year. Not really any job opportunities on campus but have a careers building. Society's sometimes practice at times which are unavailable for students.
