Good standard of teaching, excellent student suppo...

Poor nightlife, too far away from anywhere

The University of Glamorgan seems to be a place you either love or hate. For me, it is a definite improvement to my previous university, the University of Wales Aberystwyth. I'm not sure what the doom merchants were studying but the standard of teaching on the computing course I was on last year...

“A STUDENT'S VIEW”

published 30/08/2000

excellent facilities for students

you have to pay 50p per day parking if you come by...

I have been studying at Glamorgan University for 2 years now and I can truthfully say that it is one of the best in wales. It is situated just off the A470 at the Pontpridd turnoff opposite Pontypridd college, which is a 20 minute drive from Cardiff. At first I didn't know what to expect, but I...

“Glamorgan”

published 20/07/2000

Self contained but also Cardiff down the road

Hilly!

I studied at the University of Glamorgan between 1995 and 1998 and, cliched as it is, I had the time of my life! The course was great - I had been unsure of what to study while doing my A-Levels so chose their Humanities degree, which meant in my first year I did a bit of sociology, psychology...

“Funky Uni”

published 21/04/2001

Masses including general facilities

On large hill

Although lots of people insist in giving the University of Glamorgan a bad name, i feel that these people have just disregarded it on terms of how stuck up they are. As this uni used to be a polytechnic, and still likes to encourage learning with very varied levels of background education i feel...

“Don't try this at home”

published 23/07/2000

Built on a hill - easier to run away from

The list is too long

I attended Glamorgan university for a few months and was very dissapointed with the place. The fact that it was so easy to get a place (a phone call and a quick chat) should have given me a hint. The course was poorly organised and taught, and the others factors which could have made up for it...

“GLAM ROCKS!”

published 06/12/2003

Good staff and teaching, friendly

Car parking, night life, surrounding area, hills

The University of Glamorgan has been a breath of fresh air for me following the horrendous experience and treatment I received at my previous University - Oxford Brookes. In 2000, I enrolled onto the BA(Hons) Combined Studies Degree. This course is excellent as it allows you to design your own...

“It's up to you.”

published 08/03/2009

Much better than I first thought, good lecturers, ...

One extremely poor lecturer, Parking.

Not as bad as it is claimed to be. The university of Glamorgan has received much bad press here in Wales. Known to be the university that will take those who have been declined elsewhere. Truth be told, it's actually not that bad. In my final year now doing Business Information Technology and...

“Go Anywhere Else”

published 18/05/2012

New halls are cool.

It's just rubbish...

Okay, so Glamorgan.... Unlike some of the other negative reviews, I actually attended the University for the full 3 years. Rather than go on a mad rant, I'll just list some of the major issues. TL;DR - Study elsewhere. 1) Some reviews have said this is a cheap university. It's not realistically...

I spoent one year at Glamorgan and that was more than enough for me. Although I made some good friends there there were too many negative factors that made me decide to move to a decent university. Firstly the quality of teaching at Glamorgan was very low indeed, and the lecturers had the...

Cheap - friendly atmosphere

The Hills - definitely!

I studied at Glamorgan University between 1995 and 1998 and throughly enjoyed it. The beer was cheap, the accomodation cheap, and the lack of a serious amounts of local pubs meant that the Student Uni had a really good atmosphere. OK - minus points were the sometimes hostile residents - only...
