Read University of Winchester Reviews
The best university. Everyone I encountered during my three years at Winchester was friendly and welcoming and, as I left to begin my MSc at the University of Glasgow (for a course not offered at Winch, otherwise I would have stayed), I felt well-equipped to deal with any number of challenges. I wish I could go back and start the three years all over again :)
I am disgusted by the treatment and superiority of security staff regardless of whether a general complaint or sexual misconduct ( I am aware of at least two incidents of inappropriate photographs being taken by university societies and several sexual assaults which have all been reported with no consequence) has been mentioned or during general issues through student events. I do not feel like this university protects my well being or safety when events at the student union is being held. I feel like the university makes a mockery of their students who are effectively paying thousands of pounds a year to be treated like scum by a security team that enjoys causing problems just so they have people to throw out
I dropped out after a month and a half. Rubbish uni with awful dorms and sub par teaching staff. I was given no information about lectures in the first week and was given a telling off after I didn't turn up to a lecture I didn't have. Hardly any decent societies and I had a hard time making friends. Town is rubbish and hardly no decent shops. Lecturers were patronizing didn't care. I would recommend you to avoid this uni at all costs.
Having been a student, it's with great regret that I look back at my period there(university of Winchester). There are lots of discrimination against bme students. They are treated less favourably compared to their counterparts.
Generally good. Careers are a great bunch, and are so helpful Internet, never had a problem Clubs and Societies, generally something for everyone! Campus is beautiful, and the facilities are ok, but the campus is always expanding and getting bigger.
Eduroam is the worst wifi service on earth and that is coming from everybody. Never connects and when it does its speed is questionable. The university is good and the library is great. Location is nice and you can tell that they make effort but I still feel as if things can be improved.
The campus and its facilities are exemplar; disabled accessibility, food service, the Library and Computer access are abundant. The clubs and societies at Winchester are amazing, whether they're based around sports, politics, gaming, or are specific course societies they're fantastically inclusive and active. (Shoutout to Busking, History and Psychology!) The Students Union is fantastic as its staff, social events and facilities have been consistently brilliant and continue to improve! The careers services are welcoming and efficient in their advice and are committed towards getting you the best job for you. Internet is very fast and the entirety of the campus has Wi-Fi access, literally everywhere!
Very good university, especially for Primary Education, library is well stocked! SU do good nights, especially with decorations and the like and the drinks are reasonable priced. Enjoy my course and the people at the uni are very good! If it wasn't for the lack of a local big supermarket (Sainsburys down the hill in town is a pain because walking up from there with shopping is tiring!) then it would be perfect! Online shopping is needed really. Also a shame about the hills, however it makes me feel less guilty about not joining a gym!
Brilliant facilities, and services for students. However due to the obvious extra intake of students every year, facilities are often stretched at peak times of the day. Computers and workspaces become hard to find in periods like this.
A lovely peaceful campus with that countryside feel yet it is still close to town and the train and bus station. The clubs run here are always popular with everyone and the careers service here help you get a job as well as teaching you skills like how to write a CV.
This university has a very high standard. The teachers are great, and so are the students. You can be yourself, and it will most likely be a society where you fit in. The teachers are very motivating, and passionate about their subject.
I did not attend Winchester myself but as a guest I was treated in an appallingly rude manner by the pathetic excuses they have for staff at the student union 'Nightclub' (aka glorified school disco that does not allow students to enjoy themselves). Both times I have been to an SU event when visiting a friend attending Winchester uni I have been treated as far, far, far more drunk than I was and on the first occasion was thrown out and verbally abused by the security staff for slipping on an ice cube while wearing 5 inch stilettos- apparently this was enough to make an assumption that I was highly intoxicated and had nothing to do with the state of the floor... hmmmmm... perhaps one should purchase a breathalyzer for future use as they clearly cannot use their eyes and 'brains' to determine otherwise. I highly recommend prospective students give Winchester a miss if they wish to be able to go out and enjoy themselves without getting scrutinized.
I love this university, everybody is so friendly and the teachers are really cool and approachable, you get treated like an adult here and that's a nice touch, it's a short distance from town too so that's not a far walk, and the place in general is really pretty
Its getting better academically. Lecturers are very good, courses have excellent content. Very friendly community atmosphere due to relatively small university size. Ideal for students unsure about moving away from home or people from small towns/villages.
The University of Winchester may be small and the campus may be scattered, but the university has it where it counts. The professors teach to a high standard and help as much as possible, which is what is important.
Majority of people are super friendly, Staff are helpful. The area is lovely and the Campus is kept clean. Societies are welcoming for the most part but some sports and arts societies/clubs seem a little unwelcoming. Student Union seems to be focused mostly on the sports and arts clubs but other than that it's okay. Overall it's an amazing place to go to and I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.
Winchester University is great, and I am so happy with my choice to study here. Campus is lovely, with everything being close together on the King Alfred Campus. New buildings are lovely as are the old. Internet is usually okay, however sometimes a little unreliable. Staff are really friendly, and are always happy to help with any issues you may have. Great events held at the SU. Love Winchester Uni!! Will be very sad to leave once I have finished my degree!
The university, although small, is brilliant! Even down to its mix of modern and old architecture. It has a really unique feel to the place. The SU is great for a night out, and the campus itself provides an open and social atmosphere.
Brilliant university that gives an opportunity to all students to have a career in what ever they want ! The lecturers are extremely knowledgable and have vast in field experience. The seminar group are small and very interactive especially with real world situations, allowing for maximum learning outcomes to be experienced ! The vast choices of modules for all subjects and societies to join is brilliant and creates a really safe friendly environment to be a part of!
The university has plenty going on all the time, from just about every club or society you can think of (if it does not exist, it will be created!). The student union works tirelessly promoting events and nights out. The staff are all human and approachable, always available for advice and inspiration. The careers office have a dedicated website and an office that you can pop into if you prefer dealing with genuine humans. The opportunities are available, both within the university and outside.
A small but wonderful university where you can get to know everyone and everything, the student union is great and although the town is small you can have some cracking nights out! The area is beautiful and the university itself is lovely! The best three years at university I could have asked for
This university was great until i had a problem, which has still not been resolved and it has been over a month. I was the victim in this problem and i was punished for being so, something that i was promised that i would not be. Not only was i punished but several other students who were part of it victims also were punished, There has been problems with the freedom of speech as well, we are not allowed to bad mouth the university because it will make the university loose credibility when the university for the students who attend has already lost its credibilty. The campus is great and most of the staff are lovely. The TRS lecturers are helpful at all times and do not moan when problems arise then simply get on with it. There are a few classrooms that need to be redesigned but the historical atmosphere of Medecroft is lovely. Bop is a great factor for the university.
