Like the reviews above I have also just started an online masters in Computer Sciences. The platform is the most confusing VLE I've come across with multiple tabs and redirects. The actual 'material' is read these chapters in a book and watch these videos which are old and dated, then write a comment to other students. After also reading in detail about the modules (information which was not available prior to starting my studies) the whole course seems outdated. I have no idea how you can learn a computer science based degree by reading a textbook! I will be demanding a refund and studying with an alternative university.
I have just started the same online Masters in Computer Science as the previous reviewer. I am appalled by the platform and the material. I shall be asking for a full refund and failing that I will be issuing a county court judgement as this is not the quality of the course material that I was expecting. If anybody else would like further information on my county court claim process my email is Wolfe.scott at iCloud dot com.
Unfortunately, I enrolled in the online Master of Computer Science at Wrexham Glyndwr University (they also call it the North Wales Management School). It was so bad that a large group of angry students formed a mob and demanded their money back, but so far none of them have gotten their money back - I got the feeling the university has too many money problems and can't afford to give a refund to all the angry students so they just ignore everyone's emails. There are no teachers - the students just pay £500 per class to watch old videos that the university recorded and then hand in a few assignments that aren't actually even marked (the university gave the entire class the same mark, no matter how good or bad their assignment was). There literally was no teacher present. The university will be shut down and lose its university status because in the UK it is illegal to do this. People always said WGU is bad, but I don't mind bad so much, I just won't tolerate illegal behaviour.
Tutors are great on my course very supportive and have so much background experience. Wish there were more sports and activites going on as not much set up currently. Food on campus is great and reasonably priced. Brand new study areas popping up across the campus too which are modern and a great place to work or socialize.
It has been absolutely the worst experience I could have as a student. We had a lecturer that he read word by word what was written in the book, without actually having any Additional knowledge on the topics. The area is the worst possible environment for a student. Wrexham is a town where you'll only have a good time if you're into drugs, as there are no places to hangout whatsoever, and the university has no happenings going on. Just don't go. Don't. On the plus side they have an amazing careers office. Very understanding and very helpful. Other than that, don't go!!!!!!!!!!
CANNOT THINK OF ENOUGH NEGATIVE WORDS TO DESCRIBE MY EXPERIENCES AT GLYNDWR.....JUST ABOUT THE WORST UNI THERE IS...AWFUL TUTORS AND TOTAL LACK OF SUPPORT.....LOOK AFTER THEIR OWN STAFF AND HARMFUL TO STUDENTS' LIVES AND CAREEERS...DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT BEING A STUDENT THERE...
I’m currently studying education and childhood studies and it’s awful, the teachers are the worst people I’ve ever met. They don’t support you and are so personal when marking your work. ( if they don’t like you for any reason your going to fail.) I wish I could go somewhere else but due to personal reasons I have to stay in Wrexham. Please don’t waste your money here. It’s hell.
Awful I’m currently studying education and childhood stupid and it’s been one of the worst experiences of my life. The only reasons I’m carrying on is because I can’t travel away and need to get my degree. If you have a choice please choose somewhere else!
Has all the basic facilities a university should have. There are a lot of societies to choose from but I have no experience with them as spare time is hard to find on a full time course. Wifi is not very good at all.
