Everything is okay and to be expected. The internet and I.t department is absolutely god awful to the max. I have e-mailed them almost every two weeks for a year regarding the bad internet. They ignore it and simply respond saying it's fixed despite their still being an issue. I have reported the same issue for A YEAR The accomodation team ignored my e-mail about being reimbursed due to poor internet and not having a washing machine for two weeks and no water for 3 days. Pathetic. Not to mention the union awards were £25 for a ticket alone which is a joke, considering every social is told 'they're nominated as best social of the year'
wifi goes down all the time. sole page doesn't work most of the time. feedbacks you get from tutors are ridiculous, confusing and usually do not make sense at all. campus is allright if you do not mind pay massive money for it, i lived in avon campus paying 500 pounds a month (!!), did not have decent sleep so last 4 months i lived somewhere else but still had to pay for it. security doesnt really do their jobs properly around the campus, when you call them they sometimes do not even bother to come and check up on things. furnishing in halls at least where i stayed were very very old and basic, looking like from old orphanage. there are very good teachers but it is mostly exeption rather than rule. i studied business and wanted to quit in every year, even few months before end of third year. especially if you are international student wanting to study business - make yourself a favor and definitely choose different university!
Best Uni for science or nursing/ medical studies I transferred here after doing a year at Northampton and hated it as they had none of the values,support, efficiency and professionalism as Worcester Uni. I feel I can approach any lecturer without feeling stupid or less important than anyone as they are fair and really want to help you get the best out of your degree. Internet is brilliant they will let you know of any internet problems and will fix it ASAP having said that it can be slow in halls a certain times but I believe this has been fixed from the beginning of the year. The facilities are one of the best I've seen as they try to give students an array of experiences as skills to fit with their study. As for societies that depends on which one you join for example film club have been quite persistent and organised every week with things going on as have some of the sport societies, although the biology society I joined only had one guest speaker in the year and that was it.
Brilliant uni, probably depends on the course and how much you plan on using the student union but I've throughly enjoyed my time and the campus lecture halls and class rooms are decent, staff are lovely and they do have a lot of mini events on at the bar which are always fun!
It is such a varied university there are so many societies to join, from Harry Potter and Disney society, to the kayak, canoe and surf society. The internet is appalling as only certain places you can get good signal. There is so much to do you can go to the gym on campus, having lunch in the SU is my favourite thing to do especially in the summer. It is a small compact university which is lovely as it brings such home feeling to the campus. Unfortunately there isn't a library on campus and joined up with the rest of the city which is a pain at times and can be very frustrating if everyone wants a computer or the same book. You are constantly having job updates sent to you which is great and the careers advisor is so helpful.
the university is a part of a a great community and my course is wonderful with fantastic lecturers (for the most part) and wonderful drama technicians. i have excelled in areas i would never have explored if it weren't for this university and i thank the drama staff for helping me find my passion for technical theatre and special thanks to the technicians for helping me to progress within the field i am eternally grateful to worcester university
The university is really new, with a lot of new facilities and loads of study areas, it's got a gym, nice football pitches, basketball arenas, sports hall, it's a great sports university, it's also got a radio studio, a TV studio, iMacs, professional video cameras.
Nice university, the main campus is very safe, good places for revising, excellent sport facilities. Quite small however, not a large choice of shops near by (it's co-op or you walk into town which can be bit of a trek. If you don't have a car is best to have your shopping delivered)
Worcester University - The good, the bad and the butlins
1) Sole sometimes crashes- meaning assignment deadlines are extended 2) There are some great lecturers who will teach you valuable knowledge that would be impossible to find anywhere else (Dave Mycock, Mandy Newbold etc) 3) Sports Facilities - The Arena especially 4) Sports clubs and societies at the university are amazing. Range of sports and clubs for anyone from the traditional sports to the not so traditional! 5) Berrys
Some people call the university 'Butlins' and it is sometimes with good reasons: 1) Sole page sometimes crashes - making it very difficult to upload assignments 2) Varsity clashing with assignment deadlines - need i say more. 3) Mark Piekarz 4) Some lecturers are TERRIBLE at sticking to assignment feedback dates 5) The research process module - compulsory for all 2nd year sports students and is the worst module you could ever imagine.
