Law / Legal Studies, Year 3

(5)·By Abi G·Law· Jul 2021
It was quite quiet compared to what I saw on social media. But the SU did what they could with what they had, still had the option to go into Cardiff for the freshers events as well I used private rent accommodation due to not wanting to go into halls. I had a halls room as a back up in case things fell through they were good with allocation and communication. Private rent companies aren't that great in the area, my second year accommodation was the best but switched hands to an awful letting agency Library was huge with so many books to collect - can sometimes be hard to find due to the layout but there are signs on the end of the bookcases. Easy to follow booking system - never had a fine due to this. On campus gym which has good facilities at a reasonable price and the SU is fine - slightly overpriced in entry fee for what you get but you can always have a good night there The course has great staff who will help you with anything, no question is deemed stupid. Coursework marks are returned on time with in depth feedback and option to follow up after to discuss. Good communication from lecturers Pontypridd campus was based just outside of the city which was fine - getting to Cardiff is quite easy. Better to have a car or car share to get groceries though

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!

I really liked freshers week in mu university. It helped find out many things and help i can get. I can't say anything about it because I do not live in their accommodation They are great. Libraries are very big, it provides every kind of learning facilities. There are classrooms for ever kind of learning. And the staff in the su are very helpful It was good because they make it easy to learn It is good because every places you need to go ti is near by

Amazing! So welcoming, had events on in both the SU and in Cardiff. Best weeks to begin your uni experience Glamorgan courts- little dim in lightening but has everything you needed including on suit and mini fridge in the room Really good! Everything was available most of the times, really great sport facilities. SU although small was amazing because you felt apart of a lot and became friends with all years Lecturers where so understanding and caring. Would help you through so much. The lectures although could be tedious a points all facilitated towards the end goal, and you learn some really amazing things along the way. The uni has great external links too for work experiences and post jobs EPIC, especially during rugby home games, can't beat a night out in the ‘diff and transport to abs from was super easy

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.

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
