Super friendly lecturers, even previous lecturers still keep in contact with you throughout your academic year to know if you are struggling in any way. A variety of club to join or for you to start your own.

My first impressions of campus were not perfect, I felt lost and received little guidance. I also had a problem with my enrollment where I was not able to use my student card for a couple of days. I joined the university football team and for some reason, the sports facilities are far from the city centre campus. This is my experience 3 months after enrolling, I hope it gets better.

Speaking purely based on experience of my course I had no problems with the course itself and found the lecturers to be very supportive. My campus is roughly 15 mins away from the city centre which makes travel and socialising easier and there are a lot of extracurricular actitivites available for those who wish to take advantage of that.

Lots of societies available to join! Some you lay lots of money for but not sure where that money actually goes because clearly not into the society. The campus is really nice and has a Starbucks!! They’re always doing little events that anyone can enjoy and they have a cute little pub!

The two campuses are great, i spend most of my time at the city center campus which has great travel links. There is a lack of clubs/societies at the university and i feel this is the lengthy process they need to create a new society. The wifi is great, fast, and reliable never had any issues with it. When it comes to jobs and placements the uni is great at helping you with this. Through their own links and helping with CVs and things like that.

Undertook a PGCE, look at their recent Ofsted report for yourself (May 2022) as they will try to hide how bad it is. If you like being patronised and treated like a child this is the place for you. Cruel leadership, lack of empathy throughout and a toxic "us and them" mentality from lecturers. Do as most of us wish we had done and get yourself onto a SCITT, you learn basically nothing from BCU that helps in teacher training anyway (I had 1 meaningful observation in the whole time I was there) so cut out the middle man and save yourself ten grand. Wish I had never enrolled in such a poorly coordinated and outright nasty establishment. Expect no help, however if you want to prove to yourself that you can thrive despite the abject shambles of an environment and lack of support, feel free to enroll.

The experience overall wasn't likable, I hoped to feel part of a BCU at my time there, I traveled all the way from my country to study at BCU to find that most of the lectures was online. We didn't had any activities to get involved into BCU community or Birmingham community on our time there. After graduation, no changes on my life happened at all. Nothing was as i hoped for or expected on the day I applied to BCU which i knew by then it's one of the best in a city it i love.

It is an excellent exposure for international students in terms of education, extra curricular activities. Library is the best.

Awful standard of teaching across the board, does not react to feedback (despite constantly asking for it), little to no social space, no campus feel due to buildings spread around the city. Would not recommend to anyone.

No massive complaints about the uni. There's plenty of opportunities to work on open days etc to earn, and weekly tutor meetings to discuss issues with modules.

For the moment I joined BCU I was made to feel like apart of the BCU family. I am so happy I chose BCU as my university, the lectures are amazing and so are the course leaders and the team. I’m at city south doing nursing and the facilities deserve more then a 5 star, it’s amazing! Can’t wait to continue my course here.
