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 SU is brilliant tbh, but there's a revolving door of visiting lecturers which I wish would stay consistent for the BLSS dept. They're all still really good though, the careers services are easy access and there's good facilities and a stonkin good student pub

Course - My course was the perfect choice for me- it enabled me to meet like minded people, interested in the same thing as me. The delivery of the course was great- every lecturer I had did a great job and delivered each and every module in a way that enabled us to take in a lot of information in an exciting and fresh way. Campus- The campus my course was based on was an old campus that has since shut. It was fine and enabled me to get my degree, however, I wish we could have had a more upto date, less far out campus to attend lectures on. The facilities- The facilities were great for what they were. We had a spacious library with plenty of bookable and non-bookable spaces to work on floors that were sociable and the non-speaking floors. The lecturer theatres and seminar rooms were always spacious and allowed us ample space to do what we needed to do. Our canteen was fab- equipped with a Costa that made those early 9AM’s a little easier.

My experience being at BCU is an overall 8/10. I had a great time and met some amazing friends while I studying there. The support from my course was not incredible, although I didn’t really go searching for it. This may say a thing or too about how available the resources were to me. The staff thoughout my course were great, always lending a helping hand in lectures and when it came to completing coursework.

Good support on course, city centre location. Lacking in societies and social activities, a very 'separate feeling' university. However I love my course and it opened doors for a placement year for me.

The campus and accommodation on site is gorgeous and many members of staff are very welcoming and easy going, However the security in the accommodation University locks are extremely rude, disrespectful and not helpful at all.

The overall experience at this university was good. Especially if you live out as the university halls are close to the city centers nightlife. If your someone who likes the practical side to your specific degree discipline this is the uni for you. As lectures draw a lot from their personal experiences in the industry.

Excellent experience at BCU. The buildings are really modern and they seem to be ever building more, with good access to resources eg 24hr library that has plenty of computers or laptops to take away. The whole campus has now pretty much moved to the city centre so housing is the only downside - most people tend to stay in flats in their 2nd and 3rd year as there aren't many student houses about. Sports facilities are good, however are located in Perry Barr where the old campus is which makes them a pain to get to. However the uni have an agreement with Aston Uni (across the road from the new site) that we can use their facilities for a Concessionary price which helps.

I go to City Centre campus but my residence was near City North campus. Curzon building is in city centre and has just been renovated so it's gorgeous with cool seating and big open windows. But there was and still is a major issue with the WiFi - not only is it not stable but it is non existent in some places. The food facilities were good but expensive. The library had everything I needed but were a bit slow when I ordered books from other departments/buildings. I study English and it feels like the English department are particularly friendly, available and helpful compared to other departments. The course content allowed choice and a range of topics. Student union try very hard but can't seem to gather membership and support which was specifically evident during elections. In terms of careers services, the employability advisors are incredible and go above what is expected of them, following up on your process after your appointment with them. My experience at university as been incredible and a lot of my enjoyment has been because of the greatness that is BCU.

Studying masters degree for design, could be more prioritied for masters and post grad studying. Buildings are new but lack enough rooms for all students, communal work spaces are lacking and could benefit from more computer labs

The Eastside campus is really modern and has amazing facilities in the arts department. The viscous area is really spacious which allows you to have a bit of space to yourself to work.

The campus itself is great nice and new all up to date. However the lectures treat you like your in preschool; put your hand up for registration and was actually once told not to touch the sheets on the table while the lecture left the room! I had one or two good lectures but the others were useless and where no help when it came to any questions you needed answering.

The uni has a purpose built campus for health and life science courses meaning there are skills rooms and labs available to practice clinical skills prior to using these on placement. Following a refurbishment there is a new IT suite however there still is a lack of computers and so smaller rooms for IT could be made available. The student experience for those on my course hasn’t been too great as we are often in 5 days a week, and days are usually 9-5 meaning we miss out on any society meet ups or extra curricular activities held by the uni. Organisation could also be improved as there are often last minute timetable changes and exams and assignments are often due immediately following or whilst still on an assessed placement.
