Nottingham university- a.k.a. The university from hell
The university did not help me find the information I needed during my subject knowledge enhancement course, nor did they help me to find a school in which to do my two week school placement. I had to do everything on my own and when I asked for support with my SKE course, my academic abilities were questioned and I was asked whether I knew to read. Very unhelpful and rude! I also had an unkind colleague with which I had to work on my tasks. She asked me whether I had done prostitution to pay for my accommodation. Unacceptable! My residence room was quite nice and I loved reading and working in the library though! However, my residence flatmates were rude as they left water from the shower on the shared bathroom floor! In my second year, my tutor did not give me a place in a secondary school so I could do my school experience. I couldn’t get qualified and I ended up jobless. If my tutor was more supportive and had she allocated me a place in a secondary school, I would have become qualified to teach French. As it was, nobody cared about my professional development except myself. Do not go to Nottingham University - they will destroy you emotionally, mentally, and professionally!
