The city centre campus is really modern and functional. The lecturers are all really helpful and willing to go above and beyond what is needed to help. The canteen food is a bit expensive but its nice. The accomodation is problematic at times but looks nice and modern.

The university itself is amazing always providing way to motivate and support students howeve my campus was left out due to it being the old run down campus which was due to be knocked down so we got left out of it all never really got any rewards for the effort we was putting in compared to the main campus

This was an amazing first year at Birmingham City University. The course was exciting, I got plenty of support and I have learnt a lot regarding cameras and lighting techniques.

LLB (Hons) Law

The structure is poor. We have too many students on our course and in our year. Our class is too large to fit into a lecture theatre so we have to sit in an IMAX cinema for lectures with no tables and pathetically dim lighting. Puebla lecturers do not respond frequently to emails and even less frequently are in their offices when they've told us they would be. We have Formative assessments to allow for feedback but they do not give us a grade of percentage so we have no idea how we are doing with the course until the end of the year.

Course module review - Studying Language, 14/02/2017

Studying Language

Studying Language at Birmingham City University is an eye opening course for sure. If you didn't take English Language at A level you may find it a bit alien to begin with as they start to dive into topics such as Old English and phonetics but it all helps to shape your knowledge in a way that assists the rest of your degree and is generally interesting and engaging.

Course module review - Independent Study, 09/02/2017

Independent Study

Independent study was a great assignment that you could do on any area within education. I chose a assessment and looked into Year 6 testing and how this is so narrow for the children.

You had a tutor for whatever topic you chose who advised you and looked at parts of you work for advice and guidance.

It's a double module and gives you a great insight into education.
