we didn’t really have a freshers week as it was college so it doesn’t really apply. however, it was good to get to know people in our classes as there was get to know you games and everyone got on. i found this really good!
i live at home so it doesn’t really apply. they offer no accommodation. i don’t really know what else to put here? but it will not let me move on until i reach 40 words which is the minimum word count. the buses are okay to get you to and from college as everyone lives at home. a lot don’t really have a specific timetable which can be annoying as you can be waiting at the bus stop for a long period of time as you don’t want to miss it as i live quite far away (a 50 minute bus journey) and have no other way of getting to college.
the library is really good as it is quiet and clean with a wide range of text books. however, the spaces fill up quickly as there is a lot of students so sometimes it is hard to go to the library. there is a study zone where you can talk to your friends and do group work which is really good and helpful! it is nicer to study with friends and help collaborate on projects. there is a gym but it is only open to people who do sports (of my knowledge). it would be better if it was open to all as many may not have access to a gym due to money or time issues. the classrooms are well organised and tidy, often in collaborative tables or lecture hall styles. this is good as it means that a variety of learning styles is being met.
it’s good as teachers are easily accessible to answer any questions. the course is detailed and informative and offers a wide range of information. this is good as it is interesting and i can apply it to real life as law is happening all around us. teaching styles are different through essay writing to group work to kahoot do revision and lessons are done in a variety of different ways. this is good as it means lessons are less boring and different learning styles are being met.
leyland is very quiet as it is mostly filled with houses and residents. with any form of disturbance residents around runshaw college will complain to either the college or the authorities. this is good as it means that students are behaving respectfully outside of the college as well as inside. there is some food options nearby, which is about a 15 minute walk away. many students go to tesco in their frees as an option that is not the overpriced food at runshaw. this establishment is very welcoming to students as they are used to them being there.
it is an extremely difficult course and many people do not like it or find it too hard. however, it is incredibly informative and interesting and there is much support from personal tutors who are there to help you deal and manage the stress that comes with it.
