What do you think of your Course and Modules? Let us know with Loop!
Loop is USW’s course and module evaluation service. Using Loop you can provide feedback on your course and modules at any time of the year – completely anonymously, in either English or Welsh.
Giving us your views will help us to work out what you like (or don’t like!) about your teaching, and this feedback will help us to improve. Your views matter!
Here are some of the changes made as a result of student feedback:
This article covers everything you need to help with technology.
This article explains where support is available and how to access it.
The library spaces are particularly popular during this period.
All of our campus libraries have a range of silent study rooms and quiet spaces.

Did you know that during exam periods, we extend our opening hours across all of our libraries?
While students love the Sports Park, one thing was evident and that is the lack of food choices, specifically healthy and nutritious meals.
Sports Park catering are limited to what they can serve from the café as there is no traditional cooking area or qualified chefs on site.

They are trying to provide a wide variety of products that can cater for using the storage and preparation areas. They are working with suppliers to develop solutions that bridge this gap and there will be changes this year to the menu and products available. The team will be re-introducing Chicken wraps.

Parking is an issue at nearly every University in the country. USW is no different. In fact, Treforest campus is lucky in that it does have parking, both Newport and Cardiff campuses have no on-site parking available to students (unless the student has a valid disabled badge).
There are many alternatives to driving to Treforest campus. Some of them can be more cost effective especially if you can get discount cards.
