Quality of course and lecturers

I had high hopes of doing well here, after seeing posters for UOC. I had previously completed a Degree and opted for a top up Degree after being told that this establishment was the "best option". The course organisation has been terrible, I have frequently travelled in (from 25 miles away) to be told that lessons have been cancelled. Also, the lecturers seem to "patch" up courses and rehash old courses. The lectures tend to be vague and lecturers often don't have the time to see us if we have questions. Sad but true.

University facilities

Library is tiny and there is no such thing as "Quiet Study". Also there is a lack of computing facilities. The bar is ok, and sportshall is ok too. But anything academic or useful to students...forget it.

About as active as a KGB sleeper cell.

University societies and clubs

Wouldn't know because I've never seen any on campus.

University life

Carlisle is ok. Whoever asaid about muggings and the like must be exagerrating a bit! It's a bit rough around the edges, and it'll never be a Uni town, but it is a friendly enough place. hat said, you DON'T want to advertise the fact that you're a student! Clubs are a bit behind the times.

Job prospects and careers service

Not much I don't think, I have low hopes put it that way. Studying has helped me to realise that I don't want any children I may have studying at this place.
