Overall the uni is okay but mostly the admin and party life lets it down. The admin team are always late at least for psychology and most the time we get work back late, exam timetables etc late. Also as it is in Selly oak, which is pretty high for crime, the nightlife is not as good as other unis

My university experience has been amazing so far. I have just finished my second year studying mathematics and it has been absolutely phenomenal. I am thoroughly enjoying my time in this beautiful campus and relish the opportunities I get from the careers network.

BSc (Hons) Computer Science

5.0 / 1 review

The content of the first year modules is worth 100% because it gets you through logic and functional programming to higher subjects such as artificial intelligence and imperative programming languages such as Java. Additionally, you may choose a module outside this field such as Accounting, Mathematics, Psychology or other widening horizons modules!

Course module review - Algebra and Combinatorics, 09/03/2017

Algebra and Combinatorics

This module is by no means easy but the two lecturers who taught the module were incredible. All hand outs were clear and ideas were well defined with plenty of examples to gain a better understanding of the content. They both clearly loved their subject and that enthusiasm was infectious and created a great environment for learning.
