Overall opinion

Dreadful experience, disorganised. Bad management of course, bad communication with students, regular redundancies mean most staff not interested in student welfare, only in preserving their jobs.

Quality of course and lecturers

Dreadful experience, disorganised. Course and Lecturers have no interest in the degree and openly hostile to anyone that did show an interest in the course. I came to Carlisle with an open mind wanting and expecting to have a good time, but all I got was struggle. Awful is to kind. No interest or interactivity with the students. No communication at all. Awfully structured courses, with lazy, incompetent and uninterested staff. I have lectures only 2 days a week. It's not even close to A-Level standards.

University facilities

Ancient computers, book availability patchy. Friendly staff in library have recently turned into ruthless debt collectors. Bar ok. Gym rubbish.

Student union

People who are way past their University days parading around once in a blue moon. Very inactive.

NA not rated
University societies and clubs

Can't even get a club sandwich in the canteen. Clubs are just not here.

University life

Dead. Totally.

1 out of 10

Extremely small 'en-suite' rooms with shared kitchens that are falling to bits. Free bog roll though!

Job prospects and careers service

Jobcentre Plus is located in centre of Carlisle. Pay not good if you have no NI contributions and are an ex-student. Plus most local employers won't touch anyone from this place. As for an MA, that would be extra time in this craphole.
