University ratings[edit]

(I'm posting this to all articles on UK universities as so far discussion hasn't really taken off on Wikipedia:WikiProject Universities.)

There needs to be a broader convention about which university rankings to include in articles. Currently it seems most pages are listing primarily those that show the institution at its best (or worst in a few cases). See Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Universities#University ratings.

From what i can see the problems with this article are that it is not following the layout given by the wiki project universities. Before adding to this article please read the project and follow the lay out given. It is a good proposed layout and means that all relavant info will be given and all uni pages will have the same info given about them. Apart from that there was no relavant info given wrongly but quite a lot missing. You will realise what is missing when u look at the wiki project uni proposed lay out. I am going to add some more info now following the information to include and heading suggested by the wiki project layout. Please read it. Delighted eyes 23:14, 23 July 2007 (UTC)

Advertising?[edit]

Bits of this article do have a tinge of the advertising, or at least a biased POV - especially the bit about foreign students on the IT courses or whatever (and indeed, what does that matter?) I'm also not too happy about this University of Wales, Wrexham nonsense: any evidence to back this up at all? Benbristol 12.38, 1st March 2007 (UTC)

"Indeed, NEWI is particularly popular with EU students who have established a firm base in Wrexham making NEWI one of the top 10 most popular destinations for EU higher education students in the whole of the UK."

I can definatly state that i know for a fact that newi is a member of the university of wales and is extremly popular with EU students (especially the Spanish and French students). i don't think this article is at all biased as itis all pure fact. These facts are available on the newi web site and in other articles about newi in the local press and other sources. http://www.newi.ac.uk/ Delighted eyes 23:09, 23 July 2007 (UTC)

Editing this page[edit]

Well, have done my best. i have added more info hopefully to eventually have a decent page of info about newi and to become a featured article. Hope u all like it if you don't then mail me or some thing and maybe we can do some more work on it. See ya later ddiolch and hewl Delighted eyes 00:54, 24 July 2007 (UTC)

i very much enjoy editing this page. Although it is not as funny as editing the University of Cambridge or Oxford University simultaneously at the same time. Toload1 10:56, 27 July 2007 (UTC)

Somebody got a pic[edit]

Put it in the campus box if you know how or a pic of wrexham fc with a pic of newi some wher else Delighted eyes

Any objections to a newi in the community section[edit]

There are three projects that i know would be able to source back to including the Africa HIV/Aids awareness and treatment partnership and meeting, the Doctors in Wales partnership and one other. Any objections say now cause it is extremly velavant to the UK. Feel free to add anything i have put on here yourselves or I will do it when i get round to it and will ask them for or take a pic to when i get round to it and put it up for free license for wikipedia need to work out how to do it first though.

Famous People section[edit]

I have removed the section "famous people from north east wales" since it has absolutely nothing to do with the subject of the article - there is no evidence any of the names mentioned in it ever attended the institution, and includes people such as Owain Glydwr, who lived centuries before it was even founded. There is no need whatsoever to have it here. Tx17777

Merge proposal[edit]

Rather than have two articles on the present and future names it would be more sense to have everything at one page and then change the article name when NEWI formally becomes Glyndŵr. This is how previous name changes and conversions to universities have been handled. Timrollpickering (talk) 10:42, 17 July 2008 (UTC)

Agree completely. --Bduke (talk) 11:06, 17 July 2008 (UTC)
Good idea. -- Arwel (talk) 22:54, 17 July 2008 (UTC)

The result was merge into Glyndŵr University. -- Ddraigfawr (talk) 22:19, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

Erm you just copy & pasted the text, orphaning the page history, so I've had to revert until someone can do the merge properly. Timrollpickering (talk) 22:41, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

Apologies the Merge help article actually says you can do copy and paste merge. Then I have noticed lower down it says you cant! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.15.19.134 (talk) 22:49, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

As the Glyndŵr University article was a stub with the info duplicated I ended up deleting it and doing a page move. Timrollpickering (talk) 22:52, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

A mess...[edit]

It's a bit of a mess at the moment, isn't it? Referring to "Glyndŵr" in part of a paragraph and "NEWI" in another - it needs a complete reorganisation with most of the NEWI bits consigned to the history of the University, but also making sure we don't refer to "Glyndŵr" doing something before July 2008. -- Arwel (talk) 21:34, 20 July 2008 (UTC)


Accommodation[edit]

I don't think it's very economical. And in Snowdon Hall they don't allow overnight guests at all! I think it should be added to the article, I wouldn't choose it if I knew... 194.82.118.105 (talk) 18:15, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

i am sure th enames of thehalls of residence used to onhere and now they are not but it still seems neat tidy and lacks vandalism with a lot of my writing in it even though its 3 years ago i wrote it or longer even Delighted eyes (talk) 16:24, 19 August 2011 (UTC)
