Uni life as a chiro student

(5)·By Courtney G·Chiropractic· Jun 2023
University is hard. It is a challenge but is completely worth it. It opens you up to so many opportunities from new friends to new hobbies.
University friends stay with you for life. They're some of the best people you will ever meet.

I personally have loved the social life uni gives you. It keeps you busy all the time but let's you chose when you want to slow down and pick things back up again. It's the best opportunity for training yourself how to adult properly !

I don't like the early uni morning! But who does ;) 9am is the worst!

My advice when starting uni is to try new things don't be scared everyone is genuinely lovely and everyone is there to help!

Drama, dance and cinematics, Year 1

I absolutely fell in love with this university as soon as I set foot inside. all of the staff are incredible and very professional, and made me feel welcome. The building itself is incredible and has state of the art facilities and equipment. There are both stairs and lifts to get around, and room numbers are clearly stated on each door.

I'm currently into my third week of university and so far I am enjoying it. I am receiving all the help I need as I'm a new student with guidance and what the university has to offer. It's a well organised university and with a variety to offer to all students. Very helpful and want us all to succeed.

Media Studies, Year 1

(5)·By Bethany H·Media Studies· Mar 2019
Amazing! So much fun and met some really great people. the accommodation was perfect, very modern and trendy. Library is massive, the SU is convenient and cheap. The lecturers are amazing, really good at giving in depth talks. The classes are small and intimate. Everyone’s always there to help.. The city is perfect, so many shop choices and easy access to everything. It’s mostly coursework based, don’t join if you want exams

Great part time course. Very informative and great tutors.

Able to study as well as work full time which allows you to reflect and improve upon your own practice.

Also good to link your practice to theory when writing essays

Marketing, Graduate

(5)·By Arran H·Marketing· Jul 2021
It was fun! Really good vibes and very informative! Helped a lot with nerves. Very nice, modern and comfortable with great staff and facilities! The rooms were big and perfect for the Advertising environment with great equipment. The and the Student bar (which had great food) and library were my personal heavens. It was very informative because of the background tutors had. There were also speeches and trips from/to agencies which were inspiring! Cardiff was a great city, very warm, welcoming and perfect for students!

Brilliant, making loads of new friends and enjoying the course that I'm on. I love that you become so close to people that you've just met and love how the accommodation is a home away from home.

University of South Wales, Newport campus is absolutely brilliant. The library and resources that are on offer at the university are very useful, same goes for the staff and lecturers.
I am thoroughly enjoying my time at this university and I am really glad I chose to go here out of my options as I really do feel that I am getting the best university opportunity I could have ever hoped for.
