Architecture student here. We had excellent tutors for our SuperStudios course and gave really helpful suggestions on presentation and other architects we could learn from to improve our studio grades. Needless to say the studio grades were the highest out of all the other end-of-year marks. We have a small workshop but it could have been used to its potential if the first years were taught or learned to practice some advanced modelling skills with wood. The grades for essays were difficult to improve as sometimes we didn’t, or weren’t given enough resources to work from. If we were lacking in any equipment or facilities, the uni was just a couple of minutes away from the nearest print/art shop, but I do feel we should’ve had our own A1 printer for printing sample pages at least. Otherwise, its an excellent uni and can’t wait for the second year.
Ulster University Belfast lacks the facilities such as a proper student union and spaces for other activities this hurts the small number of societies and groups that the uni has.
