The staff and campus are marvelous! I feel at home here and like I have a real family! Since it is a small Uni there are not tones of society's bit anyone is welcome to start one. Oh, and the SU serves warm beer that takes an hour and a half to arrive minimum, buuut it stops you spending loads. Or, you do what everyone else does and order 10 pints at once then go back to halls realising how terribly fantastic the choice was :D
Studied here for three years on an education studies course. The course lacked a general polish and was mostly theory based, which isn't great if you wanted to become a teacher and it often felt like it was overshadowed by Primary Education BA Cons. Campus is pretty and there was plenty of support.
I think you’d struggle to find a friendlier university experience. The close knit community is something very special. I studied here as an undergraduate, studied at other larger universities in between and have returned ‘home’ for my doctorate.
The uni is the best i looked round and i have been studying there for three years and i plan to stay for as long as possible. it has great facilitys and is a great uni to go to if you want a family feel. also the su is top class
I struggle to find many positive things to say about BGU. The main reason I chose it was desperation, they still had places on the course I was interested in at the start of October. They are also the nearest university to me. The quality of teaching in my opinion is highly variable. Some lectures are great, some really appear to be nothing more than tick box ‘employability’ sessions. Difficult questions regarding employment opportunities (even more relevant in the world of covid-19) are met with a shrug and obfuscation. Part of my course taught some highly contentious pseudoscientific topics with links to shockingly bad websites that should not have been part of any course of education. Communication is often non existent. Tutors often ignore emails and I find student support doesn’t exist. Blackboard and email. Perhaps it’s my account, but blackboard is a mess. My calendar is empty, there is no course info. WiFi is ok, but some gaming sites are blocked.
I first liked this university because I thought it was cute and small and that I would be able to find my way around quickly, everyone seemed friendly! What a massive mistake. This uni is like the budget "poundstretcher" version of everything. The facilities are really very poor, they invest all of their money in making the university look good and attract other students and very little on the students that they actually have. In height of uni year many of the car spaces are reserved for special "guests" visiting uni so you as a student have to go and park over the road or at yarborough there was a flood of complaints about this last year as loads of people got ticketed! Uni did nothing. Have not facilitated study abroad as promised (before lockdown) had our flat on campus broken into told we should pay for campus cameras and took 4 days to fix window! Could go on forever but not enough characters unfortunately. Big regret.
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
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.
