This university is next to none, great links with the local communities and all that Birmingham has to offer. Many departments feel like close knit families.

Course review , 11/05/2018

Submitted by Anonymous on

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

Submitted by Anonymous on

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.
