Student Reviews for Wrexham Glyndwr University

Student satisfaction:
4.4 (based on 203 student reviews)

“My overall experience at Glyndwr University has been positive. I’ve met many new people and the facilities are well equipped. I could ask for some more support from the staff though.”

“I’ve found some of the lecturers to be frequently disinterested and unsupportive. I have to say though that the facilities at this university are excellent, especially those for Engineering students.”

“As an international student I expect more help and support from the university, as there weren’t any orientation services provided for learning how to live in Wales. I wrote to three different people and still haven’t received an answer, which I think is quite unreasonable.”
