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.

Campus is so so friendly and everyone is accepted for who they are regardless of background, wealth, sexual orientation or gender. It's a amazing student community and everyone on campus is always happy to have a chat or offer a helping hand

I love my uni because of the location mostly. I’m from Birmingham so I didn’t have to find my way around the city. I love how mixed my university is culturally, allows me to meet people from around the world. I love my course as well.

Great university. The medical school is a beautiful building. Food and drink at the student union is fairly expensive so that could be improved. The new library building is very good. There needs to be more publicity for the careers service. Further to this, societies also need to make themselves more known on all parts of the campus, i.e. the medical college.

The campus is overall very beautiful. It has a mixture of old architecture along with new, such as the new library. However, there is lots of construction all the time therefore it is sometimes hard to appreciate it. The old library was demolished to make space for a “green area” which seems slightly gimmicky. There are not enough open study spaces to revise at, especially during exam season, which is why knocking down the old library made very little sense. My course, mechanical engineering, was overall good however was lacking in certain aspects such as lecturers who clearly did not care, this showed in their teaching, and other poorly coordinated modules, particularly the group project modules.

Very helpful support workers however due to the high volumes of students requiring their service, they can often be very busy and hard to see on short notice.

Birmingham was absolutely fantastic - gorgeous grounds, excellent clubs and societies and amazing friends made! The Drama course is on another campus - as opposed to the main one (unfortunately), but the fact the course is ranked #1 in the league tables says it all.

The university is very good in terms of buildings and people but is terrible in the organisation. There are so many things that can be fixed just by a little bit of organising!

Uob has a beautiful campus, however it is having a huge renovation so loads of building work atm, but hopefully should be even better at the end. The university is respected and recognised by employers but is a very academic and traditional university. There are loads of extra opportunities such as socities, working for the university, getting involved in enterprise schemes or learning a new language.

The campus is beautiful but is currently being completely renovated so loads of building work, but hopefully should be even better. The university itself is a respected university but very academic. The student union is large and great. There are loads of extra opportunity such as socities, working as an ambassador, getting involved with enterprise schemes or learning a new language!

My university experience has been varied, and I have enjoyed many parts of University life. My course has been interesting and challenging enough for the most part, and the facilities have been fantastic. The careers service and academic writing services in particular have been outstanding, with lots of support available for students.

Fanatastic university, only one in the Uk with its own train station. The medical school has all facilities desirable as its in the own building therefore enough study spaces to work at. Staff do take on student feedback and try some changes to improve the course. Food is expensive in the canteens but there is a large variety throughout campus. Location is ideal to the city center and student accomadation is in a beautiful location.

Overall, the university is fantastic, however there are parts of the university which bring the review down. For instance, the lack of counseling and mental health services for students is awful (considering our vice chancellor is paid the most in the country) and the brand new Sport and Fitness centre - though state of the art - favours certain sports and ignores a number of sports e.g. cricket.
