The campus is constantly developing and there is more space being added each year to accomodate the students. The organisation of my course (BA English Literature) has been impeccable with set deadlines that we are aware of from the beginning of the semester and therefore there are no surprises and we are able to be prepared. Lecturers are friendly and helpful and always available to provide feedback on anything you ask them for. I have truly enjoyed my time on this course and at this university and I will miss it.

Lovely campus, great facilities and a great number of courses to choose from. There is also an amazing visual communications school within the university, which caters to all the creative students needs. As a creative student it allows you to expand your creative knowledge and skills, you also can learn and collaborate with students from various creative disciplines.

Good facilities but the equipment provided for students isn't exactly up to scratch cos people keep stealing stuff. Opening hours for late work are perfect though and most people are quite nice.

Birmingham City offers a lot of careers advice opportunities and plenty of places and people you can talk to if you have problems. They struggle however with telling students what events are happening, in and out of uni. They don’t really tell you what resources and opportunities are available to you so you end up missing out on a lot. Not really sure what my £9,000 is paying for. Certainly ain’t printer ink anyway

The university is well equipped offering students a wide range of faculty’s that can accommodate with their learnings. My course Business and Management is very interesting it outlines what makes a good and successful manager. All the people on my course are very friendly so are they lecturers.

The curzon, millenium point and park side campuses are really well furnished with a great range of facilities. Staff are all very nice and helpful, nothing is ever too much to ask for. The building layout is organised and easy to understand which makes finding lecture rooms much easier. A lot of the lecturers are good at making the content of lectures more interesting and seem to have a lot of knowledge on the subject, however there are some that will just read off the PowerPoint slides in front of them without further explanation or info. This is annoying at times because it feels like you could of just done it yourself at home.

The campus is amazing, the school of law has brand new buildings making it really modern and spacious. My course is well structured and is based on coursework which works well for me. Careers services are great and I’ve had a lot of help with my cv.

The City Centre and City South campuses are really impressive. More importantly, tutor and lecturers see you as a person and not a job.

Birmingham City University - Royal Birmingham Conservatoire Studying at the conservatoire is a wonderful experience in many ways. First of all, the inspiring new state of the arts building with all the facilities and performing venues we need to explore our art. There is a very friendly and supportive atmosphere between all students and staff. There is not a single day without an event, concert... Such a great place to study music.

Campus has been well signposted, the rooms are adequate. The library is good but online services could be made more accessible and user-friendly such as it can be difficult to search for titles you want to read online. I have enjoyed my course so far. The accommodation could have been better, the rooms were not very clean when I moved in and we had problems with leaks.�
