During my stay at Green Wood Court hostel, I had the pleasure of interacting with Ollie and Brandon, two exceptional staff members who truly enhanced my experience. Ollie's warm demeanor and helpful attitude were evident from the moment I arrived. Always ready with a friendly greeting and eager to assist with any inquiries or concerns, Ollie went above and beyond to ensure that I felt welcomed and comfortable throughout their stay. Similarly, Brandon's professionalism and efficiency were remarkable. Whether it was promptly addressing maintenance issues or providing valuable local recommendations, Brandon's dedication to ensuring a positive guest experience was commendable. Together, Ollie and Brandon exemplified the highest standards of hospitality, making my time at Green Wood Court truly memorable. Their exceptional service undoubtedly contributed to the hostel's welcoming atmosphere and left a lasting impression on me.

The facilities on campus are adequate. Could do with more social spaces though. The societies and clubs are plentiful but can be very cliquey. The SU is okay, but I have heard the bouncers at the club night and nasty, irrational and threatening. Careers service is okay - I haven't used it myself but I've heard good and bad. There's only a number of people that work there and it sounds like their responses to help people are pretty generic replies. The WiFi is awful, it uses a third party company across both campuses and accommodation. Its a challenge to sign into, you have to configure settings separately which is horrible, and is usually trial and error to connect. Plus it always randomly signs you out so you have to do this all again.

Having been on the PGCE course at Winchester I would strongly recommend looking elsewhere for training. As a recent student here’ are my thought, opinions and experiences which I hope you find honest and helpful: - Teaching on the course is generally poor in several subjects, including maths, science and English (there are rare exceptions for music, art and PE): it is often delivered in ways we are told not to teach as teachers; it was frequently considered to be a waster of time by students, being boring and simplistic. - I found the course leadership to be atrocious with little concept of customer service and meeting student needs. Responses to questions about the course were met with defensiveness and fobbing students off rather than addressing and tackling some of the many issues. There are also important unaddressed issues around diversity and inclusion. - An extremely condescending attitude appeared prevalent towards students and little support was in place: a friend suffering

In my time at Winchester University I have had many good times and met some brilliant people. My accommodation and the facilities have been better than I expected, and any major issues I have had have been quickly fixed. I enjoy some elements of my course but enjoy others less. Overall, I feel that my course is going ok and I have found some modules and assignments very interesting but there are also improvements that could be made, which have mostly been reported to our student representatives.

I completely loved my time here. Having been to a different university the year before and not liking the environment or culture, Winchester was much more friendly and welcoming. Everyone here nice and easy going and there is plenty of society’s to join that are welcoming and fun. The campus is absolutely beautiful and there’s plenty to do both there and in the city. Could not recommend more!!

They have a very personal involvement in students life and wellbeing and how to help balance it with any external issues. The wellbeing team is absolutely amazing and as a first year the university does a great job at helping their students intergrate.

My friends and I were recommended this university because of their diversity and understanding for international students, but in reality they didn’t really care for us. It was more about the money in the long run. There were always issues with the WiFi and the student union only supported the societies they liked or had any relations towards. If you had any complaints they wouldn’t take it seriously, I had friends from Austria, China and Norway that decided to quit after one year because of offensive comments from students regarding the colour of their skin and nationality. After spending tons of money on my education the university hasn’t even considered the international students for graduation, this university is beneficial for any student in the UK, but if you’re from abroad I would recommend another university.

A student accommodation flat that surprised me. The whole building is very new with high speed Wi-Fi and 24 hour secure automatic doors, free gym area and laundry and the room facilities are all brand new. The space is very spacious and bright and comforting. To be honest the weekly rental price of the flat is a little higher than the average student residence, but after staying there for almost 1 month I think it is well worth it. 1. it is in a fairly safe and quiet location, about 10 minutes walk from Winchester's shopping streets, which is neither too noisy nor too inconvenient for everyday shopping. 2. Everyone in the accommodation is from all over the world and they are very friendly. The receptionist was very helpful whenever I needed help, such as when the facilities were broken down and needed to be repaired, collecting a delivery, etc. 3. there were regular social events and activities that didn't make me feel lonely while studying away from home

This university is a disgrace. If I could turn back time and go elsewhere I would. No detriment policy - to their credit, the 2019/20 policy was fair. But for 2020/21, in the WORST of the Covid-19 pandemic, we are given a measly two weeks self-certified extension, a few faculty extensions, and no leniency on dissertations and no way of protecting sliding grades due to illness, mental health, lack of resources or poor study environment. NO student support - ask any UoW student with any mental health struggles or disabilities and you'll get anecdotes about the horrendous treatment of the troubles confronted by these students, including being told that 'not everyone is disabled' when requested to KEEP THE LIFTS OPEN at night. Accommodation is rat-infested and the pipes are clogged, I was made to move out at 3am after a night in A&E because my bathroom had black mould and rat droppings. I cannot wait to graduate. This uni DOES NOT deserve your money.

Worst university to study at. It's very difficult being thrown into a subject that you've never known about or understood at all, to be expected to write a 2000 max word document and get a good grade. Not to mention that you can't understand the lecturer's accent. 9K a year for a foundation year, nothing connected to my course at all. Nice

Campus is beautiful, and well laid out. Easy to find seminars/lectures as a freshers. Society’s are amazing and so is the student union, people are so genuine which makes the experience ten times better. However, major work is needed in the career services and pastoral care. people like me normally fall through the system and sadly it’s happened to me once again. I dont know who my personal tutor is and there has been zero contact between them and me throughout both semesters.

I believe Winchester used to have a great reputation, and when visiting the campus and studying there, you can still sort of see why in the lively looking campus, amazing facilities such as being able to rent camera equipment and ordering new books for the library for free, but it lacks any sort of passion or selectivity in its candidates. Every single person I saw in my interview was accepted into the course, many of which I didn't understand why. Many made it clear they were only coming to university to take 3 years off of starting their adult life, and lacked any care for the practise they were participating in. I can tell the lecturers shared my annoyance at this, with many lacking care and effort when teaching their subject. And why would they care? They don't seem to be paid enough, and they don't have a fully willing audience. I hope the university decided to exchange its ploy to get as much income as possible for selecting students who genuinely care about their subject.

The town is nice, nights out are okay however there are only 3/4 Places to hang out and the security in town are all very angry and aggressive towards the students. Basically everyone I know has been grabbed and thrown out of somewhere in town, they leave bruises The campus is okay however the food around campus is not very nice and is very overpriced. The uni really try to focus on promoting mental health awareness and support, however when I went to talk to the uni about my issues they just told me “it’s not the end of the world” and make me feel like an idiot The housing/security are really strict. If you step a foot out of line they will most likely evict you (it happens a lot) There is also absolutely no where to park on campus or even in the town through the weekdays (if the uni notice you parking on campus, they will assure to fine you asap) Overall, you’re defnitely better off going to a bigger, nicer, more friendly city uni- I wish I did! 1/10 would not recommend

I adored my time at the University of Winchester. The campus/facilities are beautifully designed and really helpful, and easy to navigate. There are a huge range of societies to choose from, and the internet is quite reliable. Student services are helpful and effective, although some areas do need improvement. Overall, the years I spent at this university were the best of my life.

I am studying a MSc in Applied criminology, the lectures and the slides lack a lot of information and support and a lot are duplicates of those used at undergraduate level. The lectures are reluctant to provide additional support when asked for. Issues with certain lectures are always dismissed and allowed to continue. I would not choose to go back to Winchester if I had the chance

Overall the uni is very good. Some of the facilities e.g. some toilets are a bit grim and need to be updated. More vegan options on campus especially in student union.

My academic experience has been good overall. Quality of staff members is mixed but most have been helpful and approachable. I have been particularly impressed with my course leader for politics for solving issues and as an engaging lecturer. The course can be repetitive and sometimes either too uninspiring or leaps to complex territory, but at least half the modules are engaging and interesting and assignments have largely considered student preferences. The uni has a good range of recreational and social facilities for a small uni. In a fairly small and quiet town, this counts. Although, while I haven’t felt affected, the modest size of the library has been limiting for some but I’ve found accessing online resources quite straight forward. My experience has been fairly consistent but there is some dissatisfaction felt by fellow students. Upper management has been questionable for the past year in particular leading to strikes and protest from staff and students.

This review is mainly based from my experience ( and some people felt the same). The course I was on was badly organised since they were constantly changing elements. It was very hard to keep up with the changes. The lectures I went to felt that that they didn’t want to engage the students as it wasn’t very practical and almost felt like a waste of time to go. On Week 2 of being there, they decided to announce that they didn’t have PCs for a computer based course and some of us (including me) had to buy our own laptops, which were expensive, to run the programs we needed. There are good elements that they are achieving, I found that I could get help easily for mental health issues and work issues. They gave me a lot of advice. Furthermore, they supported me when I decided to leave. They have a amazing library with all kinds of books and research materials. The internet and WiFi is quick. The courses do vary so some are better that others, make sure to get all the information.

The campus at Winchester is small, homely and beautiful. The uni campus largely has really good facilities but they are expanding the number of students and so facilities are becoming stretched. The union bar has really weird and short opening hours. But largely the campus and facilities are good. Student services are really helpful and supportive as well as having a really good academic skills department which I have found very valuable. The teaching is amazing and interesting on my course. It is a small course and the lecturers know everyone by name and we have a good relationship with them. They have been incredibly supportive with both academic and pastoral issues. I would highly recommend Winchester. It is a very supportive and homely uni with great facilities and opportunities. The city itself is old and beautiful. Although it doesn't have the best nightlife, Southampton and Eastleigh are close enough for going out.

The uni is focused more on how it looks as an establishment than it does the people actually studying here. The faculties are unorganised and chaotic, things are regularly lost and it is left to the students to resolve. The security at the student union are awful, they use their power to push people about, don’t actually care for the safety of students and just discard anyone who may actually be vulnerable. The counselling and mental health services are basically non existent and not even worth mentioning.

Campus is beautiful and has pretty much everything you would need but is small and very hilly. NO PARKING at all around the uni unless you have a permit which is really hard to get. Very difficult if thinking about commuting. Luckily I was given my first choice of accommodation at West downs, and despite none of my flat mates leaving their rooms to socialise I really enjoyed my time there. The rooms are a lot bigger than Burma and the village is a lot more attractive and allows you to be more sociable due to the large windows and grass areas with bbq pits. However if your course takes place on the main campus, be prepared for the hill back to your room. Good range of societies but felt if you weren’t really good at a sport you weren’t given much of a chance to take part. The SU offered loads of events during freshers and holds around 2/3 events each week, while offering jobs to students. When the WiFi worked it worked well, but found it was constantly disconnecting.

The campus is very nice but small. The lectures of often interesting and run well, I have no problems with the course. However student services care very little for the students treating them as nuisances, even if they really need help. I know many students that the university has failed and have now dropped out as a result, this can range from not helping with mental health issues to failing to punish sexual assaults even when caught on cctv. The university’a zero tolerance policy towards drugs and criminal offences is anything but, resulting in a £50 fine in extreme cases, this had lead to people feeling unsafe in the university halls and around campus after they have reported issues to the university.

As a second year going into third year I can say that I’m not looking forward to going back as I know I can expect the same. It’s been poor from the start, poor communication and poor course I guess. Told at the start of second year that we can go to our lecturers anytime for help and support followed by we will only be here for you when it’s convenient for us i.e. working day hours which is pathetic. Don’t know what I’m paying 9 grand for and definitely wouldn’t pay anymore than 3 at this point. Work ethic of some lecturers is little to non existing which really ruins the course not just the module.

Unbelievably overpriced SU, mental health service is a joke, the societies make the uni experience far better but the uni are running themselves into the ground. Accepting more students but no space to place them forcing some freshers to pay £7,000+ for accomodation they never asked for. I know it is winchester but still, the prices are crazy compared to pretty much all other unis in terms of accomodation, shop prices & bar prices. My faculty was very good but I am aware of others who struggle to competently communicate and some which are simply not taught well enough due to staff attitudes. Its a bit of a shambles.

3 years ago I would have given this university a much higher rating. However, the increase in student intake has a NEGATIVE impact and is heavily felt. The library and other work spaces are far too overcrowded with 0 spaces available throughout the day and the closer you get to deadlines (when you need to use these facilities) the less room there is. As a commuter, arriving at ridiculously early times to achieve a space is not feasible. Appointments for student services are far and few between, resources are not as available as they say they are. Waiting list of a month for some. Lecturer quality is hit and miss, some are fantastic whereas some are .... questionable. General lack of capability to reply to emails. Claim to care for the environment and they do have recycling bins on sites for coffee cups etc but are currently spending MILLIONS on a new building whilst asking lecturers to take voluntary severance due to lack of funding available. Something not quite adding up ....

Winchester is a wonderful university with a variety of societies and activities to take part in ranging from swimming to quidditch! The music centre particularly is excellent and student services are so helpful and kind. The student union may not be the biggest but it’s one of the safest and the summer ball was amazing. Theres nowhere else I’d rather be.

Physically, everything’s fine. Nice campus, accommodation is ridiculously expensive (as expected), fun SU etc. However, there’s an atmosphere of ‘not our problem’. I did my undergrad and masters at winch (winch offers a 50% deal off on masters if you do an undergrad with them), and studied in both the arts and business faculties. The mental health services are a joke. A 3 month wait for an assessment and then 5 sessions
