Hello, I am a student at a university of Bedfordshire in Biomedical science. I am an international student. At first, i like the university but as soon as i realize i am wasting my lots of money and TIME. If i talk about the education system, it is a good well-managed laboratory but as a student, i experienced that they do not have quality professors. Moreover, I recently got my assignment marks. I am totally disappointed with my grades. SUCH A WORST MARKING SYSTEM. NO FAIR MARKING. DON'T RECOMMEND ANYONE. PLEASE LOOK FOR OTHER UNIVERSITY.

Worst university, I am currently studying in this university in msc biotechnology. The staff is not supportive at all. I was not well for 2 weeks . And I couldn't attend my lab due to that. I contacted my tutor my co ordinator and mitigation team. At last after making lots of efforts they told me I couldn't submit my assessment because of that. World is suffering from coronavirus and that's why I didn't took risk to attend lab, I couldn't contact NHS to give letter in this worst time. I will not recommend anyone , must go for other better university

This is the worst University or learning institution I have been to. My agent had registered and sold me with this University for the MBA program. I went there for the first few days with high hope of getting a positive academic result. However, the teaching quality from the team is unimaginably poor, some of the teachers do not even speak proper Eglish, that leaving all the students with a huge confusion. When I try to ask for academic guides from the team through email, they would not reply for days. On the other hand, the teaching team has a weird marking criteria-they have failed my coursemates who are motivated and engaged with the course but allow other students who opt-out with paying people for writing their essays. This is UNFAIR!!!!! They would also rigorously ask for money because you have failed the unit with a week's notice. Honestly, this is unbearable and unacceptable in the UK education system. When it comes for documents work-the University will not corporate

The University of Bedfordshire does not have the facilities most UK universities have, with the huge international student presence generic emails sent are not encouraging instead threatening and derogatory to minorities. THE LEAST BEST UK UNIVERSITY FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS.

University of Bedfordshire is great! I have been studying in Luton campus and Bedford. I can say that both campus are well organised. There are many facilities. Students are always warm welcomed and there are many activities going on. It is hard to get bored at University of Bedfordshire as there is always something interesting to do.

The Bedford Campus is the second main campus that the University of Bedfordshire has. The atmosphere is very dynamic and engaging and a wide range of course are offered here, including Education, Sport and Business Management. The facilities are great and support students in their learning. In particular, the library is opened 24/24 during the Academic year, which offers the possibility to consult many different books and has a completely silence floor to help students focusing on their assignments. It is very easy to get to know other students and you can be involved in several extra-curriculum activities during the week, including the possibility to join societies, sports team or just relax in the Student Hub.

My experience at University of Bedfordshire has been excellent so far. I am a final year student and I can say that this University offers many opportunities to growth personally and professionally. There are many extra-curriculum activities, such as: Go global, communication skills, public speaking, get active etc etc. The facilities are excellent, in fact I have to thank the 24/7 Library which supported my preparation during these years. The lessons are designed in two sections, lecture and seminar, I found very interesting the seminar, as there is a chance to practice and apply the theories previously learnt in a real life context.

a poor experience overall, consistently poor communication and organisation, especially when training for a career where those are so vital. Could consder vetting applcants more thoroughly as there were some real problems in 1st and second year. General lack of enthusiasm or consistency from staff. Some excelent lecturers, but let down by overall experience. The placements have helped far more than anything, although that is always going to be the case. The University can only give you the theoretical base for your work, placements are where you really get the chance to learn and gain an understanding of the job. The quality of lectures and the overall exprience has been poor, with very poor orgnisation, communication and focus on learning. Some excelent lecturers with real knowledge and skill, as well as the means to pass this on to students, but they are in the minority. Overall, I regret studying at the UoB, and would urge anyone to reconsider applying here.

My experience at the University of Bedfordshire has been excellent so far. I am really enjoying my course and the possibility to work with people coming from over the world. The University’s facilities are great, especially the library that is opened 24/24 during the Academic year. Teachers are very friendly and always available to provide you any support. They really make my lessons engaging and interesting. There are also many extracurricular activities, including the possibility to join societies, sports team or just relax in the Student Hub.

I always wonder why upon state of art facilities,University of Bedfordshire sits low on university ranking. It wasn't long before I discovered the reason there are few good academicians in the school but many end up killing intellectual ambition of students particularly at post graduate level, inconsistent grading criteria and feedback,institutionalised racism and lots.With very good grades from one of 10 best Universities in the world,my academic ambition almost ended with biased grading system of some lecturers in faculty of health and social sciences! To prove my competence, I opted for another masters in a bigger university in the earth of London with more world class tutors,I graduated with Distinction.unibeds gives survey form to rank lecturers after two or three session out of ten to avoid exposing their tutors but never repeated such survey after session with each lecturer. ...love Luton,come unibeds, have good academic ambition try somewhere else!

Worst University in the UK. If you really want to invest to your future career avoid this Uni at any cost. They only care about your money and you don't get serve as a student. Education staff don't care about students and for some reason they give more opportunities and care more about International student's. The give an advantage to Chinese people for a example they allow them to have their books open during their examination test which this thing is not allow to other students. This is very unfair. Even the university staff at the information desk are not being trained well enough as they don't speak fluently english and they have zero knowledge of their duties. If you don't have any other choice an not being accepted by any other University don't worry. You can apply next year for right University because if you go to UNIVERSITY OF BEDFORDSHIRE you might ended up as a drop out, like a lot of people do. Think wisely before taking such an important decision for yourself.

I think its not that I like Luton.I think that Luton airport and particulary easy jet should become local company for some years. I.E flights from the uk based planes in the UK.I mean that someone from Europe cannot make a stop at a UK airport with easy jet But he can make a stop to anyother countries. University of Bedfordshire agree should step out the university rankings. As a student I always choose the most expensive ticket to buy and quality value strongs irons.

I think that the University of Bedfordshire should step out the UK University rankings for some years. It should be a local university to recruit from Leeds Edinburgh,Aberdeen etc. Should step Times,Guardian,complete.Might and other universities step out the university guide to accept international recruitment that reflects a negative perspective.

If I could do it all again... I would do something else instead. Poor teaching environment, inconsistent lecturers and marking. Assignment grades and feedback are almost always late, and guidance on assignments can be very poor, which wouldn't be a problem if the lecturers would then clarify the requirements. Some lectures and lecturers are very good, but the experience on the whole was very poor and I regret my choice to study here... Live and learn.
