I recently studied the BSc Hons in Health and Social Care at Burnley and in my opinion the support was terrible, teachers gave me extremely low marks for good work, emails were ignored and it resulted in me being unable to find a job and not having a grade high enough for entry on to a Masters degree.
I undertook my degree in English Literature and the tutor Dr Richard Walker was hardly ever there. It is absolutely disgusting the amount of money I now owe to SLC when my teacher was always off sick; often only learning this after trudging across campus to find a pathetic note on a door. Now, ten years later, I am hugely indebted and without employment. I wonder if it has anything to do with such disgraceful treatment at the hands of my university.
The uni has 2 different free WiFi’s, so when one drops out (which they do) you can switch to the other and not waste your data. There are plenty of shops and places to buy lunch, however they can be expensive for what you end up getting. The library is brilliant, with bookable group study rooms so you can discuss the course content with friends. All the study rooms have whiteboards, computers and screens but you have to buy your own pen. Don’t buy it from the library, the price is ridiculous for a single whiteboard pen. The student union is good, it has a cafe and several shops, and also an amazon locker.
Fairly good uni, SU isnt the best ive seen but its decent enough, loads of societies not sure what most of them even do as i never hear anything but maybe thats my fault. Library is great especially as its open 24 hours
My daughter took the creative writing and literature course. Some lecturers were good, some were utterly disinterested. My daughter's class were told not to write any fantasy because their tutor doesn't like it, even though that's what some of them wanted to specialize in. About 70% of the class dropped out before finishing their degree because they felt so hopeless and demoralized with the standard of the teaching
Absolute nightmare. Poorly trained staff (bachelor students) why would you have a university with students teaching students. I asked for time with my tutors and all they could spare with 5 minutes on a Friday. Ridiculous, I quit sooner than a year.
Started at UCLan in september 2017 and realised it wasn't for me and that I'd rather drop out early and take a gap year and work my ass off. Then found out I have to pay 2,500 gbp to UCLan (out of the 9,000 for an entire year) for the 2 weeks I went there..? Turns out this is hidden in the t&c's and I even looked around and no other uni does this?! So basically if you go to UCLan and want to drop out do it in the first week lol - which is before you can see if you like the course. A complete scam.
The election system and the employed staff members at the students union are an absolute disgrace and they should all be struck off if the union is going to rebuild its relationship with the students. Careers service and wifi are thoroughly good.
Completed my foundation degree and loved UCLan. The facilities and staff were excellent, all lecturers were approachable and helpful in all situations. My halls for both years were excellent condition and affordable
Love everything about it! The fact that everything on campus is so close together is especially good for those in the first year and are wanting to go from their accommodation to their lectures quickly! The student union has everything you need and the staff in the centres are all really friendly. Joining a sports team is easy, you can be an amazing athlete or just someone wants to go for fun, everyone is included!
I studied BSc Psychology at UCLan which was very satisfying. The staff is very helpful and you get a lot of support with whatever you need. I enjoyed it a lot which is why I'm returning for my Masters degree this September.
A great uni full of friendly people. Close to the town centre but far enough away that you don't get the general public walking around. A large campus but everything within a 15 minute walk. Great night life all year round!
During my time at Uclan I have meet so many amazing people, both student and staff! I have never had teachers help and guide me in the right way like I have at Uclan. I was down and feeling depressed for a while and everyone really help me get past it and I managed to finish my year with a first!
Awful university. My course lecturers were shockingly unpunctual and never turned up, when they did they cut 2 hour lectures by almost 1 hour every time, and we finished 1 hour lectures within the first half hour, it made me wonder what I was paying for. I lived with people who studied different courses and they had a similar issue within the physics and maths courses. Facilities are okay but very open to the public so if you like being asked by the homeless for money everyday this is the university for you.
The campus is integrated with the city, so there is always a pub between your lectures for that desperately needed pint. The library is 24/7 and has plenty of quite and group study spaces. The buildings are well heated and most have been refurbed or due one soon. The university offers a great service for students in the PR1/2 post codes where they will take you home free of charge after dark, so late night study sessions in the library are good to go. Clubs and societies is an issue also linked with the union. The union has been a complete disappointment for me. They are poor communicators, have rubbish facilities and offer boring activities which only a small percentage of students engage in. People have little faith in uclan su, especially now that they're venue is totally rubbish and an absolutely rip off. Careers centre is great for CV support and student based jobs but there is not enough to go round. Probably not their fault! Internet is super fast and everywhere!
Engineering Department is Fabulous
Lots of new equipment added, new building being built to increase the size of engineering department. Whole university being updated and expanded.
Sports arena off campus and no transport for leasurly use.
