Lecturers and staff - helpful!

The Creative Writing programme at Winchester allows for a lot of creativity, and whilst the options for some modules aren’t what I would like to be able to choose from, what you learn, the structure of the modules and the creative pieces you end up developing is brilliant. I also suffer from a heart condition and mental illness and have missed many deadlines and lectures, and my lecturers have made that time back to me by arranging one-to-one online meetings (if I can’t make it to campus), and there are amazing students support services in place which have allowed me to submit assignments later than the original deadline and put a learning support plan in place for me. Meetings with student services, despite the department, can also happen online if you’d prefer, making it a better option if you’re ill, visiting home, have a lot of work to do at home, mentally can’t comprehend moving, are disabled or impaired, or like many uni students… just lazy. Winchester is great a social scene in my opinion, even during lockdown I made brilliant friends just from being in student halls. You obviously have your course mates too, but there are societies that suit everyone’s interest, many student club nights at the student union (as well as quiz nights, kilo sales… you name it), and there are so many bars around Winchester that you make friends in as well. If you’re after a clubbing scene, there aren’t many. Unless you count the SU, the only club is tiny, and to be honest, rubbish. To go clubbing, you’ll probably end up in Southampton, a 20 min train ride away. And if you’re like me and impulsively spend money on a night out leaving you broke, it’s a good thing you have to travel, because that way you have to plan. The three last things you should know about winch…
it is expensive, but you can work around it if you know how.
there are hills EVERYWHERE. like seriously, don’t wear heels.
it is a small place. perfect for me, because its bigger than my town but it still feels friendly (another reason you make so many friends). most people either love it entirely, or love it when they come, but by the time they go to graduate they are ready to move away.
