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 new city centre campus is excellent, modern upto date with high tech facilities for the students. From filming rooms to music studios all packed with top spec computers both mac and windows. Library could be a bit better in terms of books that are kept.

The campus I am on is very health based which has its pros and cons. Pros are that there is good support with everyone having the same type of course. Cons are you don't meet that many other people that aren't doing a health based course.

Birmingham city university is a big university consisting of many buildings surrounding Birmingham. The curzon building (which I’m at) is a new build, finalised 2018 of this year. They have a large library over 2 floors and a laptop area where you can get a laptop. Commuting is easy to the university as well as living in the accommodation as Birmingham has many cheap places to buy food etc. Psychology is great a course with many great lectures offering there experiences first hand and they want the best out of you. Pushing you to achieve.

BCU is just fabulous! It’s a new, up to date building with fantastic facilities and support (Faculty of Health: City South). The student union are brilliant, they listen and take our opinion into an account. They also give out freebies. Some rooms accumulate heat very quickly. The windows don’t always open wide, and not all the rooms have air con. It can become very uncomfortable to learn in this sort of environment. Overall, it’s a very good university.

BCU is one of the best universities for supporting disabled students. Mental health support is exceptional with BCU accommodating every student to the best of their ability. Facilities are very inclusive and the general attitude is one of acceptance and support. A very lovely university for disabled students.
