BCU delivers its courses in the most engaging ways and the lecturers make an effort to go an extra mile for the students to understand the topics. I'm glad to have chosen BCU as my university to complete my degree certification. I highly recommend them as the go-to campus.

My university experience has been great. During the pandemic I had more involvement within societies and the student union. There is so much support and facilities for students. The only downfall I have noted is this sense of independency. If students don't seek out these facilities/services themselves, then they won't be provided to them. This explains why so many students aren't aware of other things that university can provide which aren't part of their course. Yes, we do get certain emails, but these services/facilities are lost within them as students get bombarded with too many emails. The emails that do have information contain a small amount that can be easily missed. I think an idea for improvement would be an introduction on the "YourPages" on Moodle. Most of us didn't see this as we never had anyone show us. This explains why there aren't as many students are only participating in the educational aspect of university.

BCU is a decent university but there are definitely flaws. Throughout the pandemic, a lot of staff members have gone silent on the students, particularly those in leadership positions and it has made students feel a bit isolated. Some staff have been exceptional though and in general, the university is good but a little disorganised at times.

It's alright, I suppose. The administration teams are absolutely awful though. They take ages to reply to an email and you have to keep checking in to even get a response, which is quite concerning considering your career choice is in their hands.

Graduated Interior Arch & Design. We are provided with plenty of free software (I do not count 2017 as it was the first year the course was running). The course has so much to it that I stopped having a daily life. My daily life was Interior Architecture and design. Always felt like I am not doing enough and had so many breakdowns due to that. But some of us have it easy way (especially if you got related background) and some of us have it the hard way. It is a very broad course and I think it is delivered very well. Now I am more creative than I ever was. I would say that COVID made the studies much harder, but if you are going to stude IAD, you won't miss out on a lot. The course is more practise than anything. I would say - the thing I lacked the most was the extra time which I could spend in workshops or societies. I believe it is not shocking that I could not make the time, afterall I was foreign student who doesn't get any finance and works for food and accomodation..

Ruined mainly by covid. Instead of being on a 1-week timetable, we are given a 2-week timetable even though this should not be the case as all monitors within the uni, especially in the computing department have webcams meaning all lectures should be at the same time weekly as those with a low tuition loan and no help form families cannot get the work needed to pay rent and food.

I had an amazing time at BCU. The support was fantastic - I needed additional support due to health conditions and this was no problem at all. My personal tutor was great, and (almost) all of my tutors were knowledgeable (many have got very impressive credentials!) and approachable, with my final year being particularly engaging. All in all I'll definitely miss BCU!

Good facilities for Media students (expensive equipment hire for free, filming/radio studios etc) but I think you have to be good at what you choose to study even before you start uni, since you don't really learn much. Maybe it was my mistake to take a broad course without picking the speciality right away but I was hoping to get as much as possible and learn about more various media sectors by going to different modules: TV, journalism, magazine production/graphic design, events etc). Well that did not work out since after graduation I couldn't get any job within the media sector and I realised that I wasn't even feeling confident with my knowledge or experience enough. I didn't even feel the student life vibes there (maybe because I was 2-3 years older than most of the course mates) and other 'kids' seemed arrogant. Also, NOT a good choice for European students since the uni had mainly 'locals'. All my friends I had were going to UCB, where vibes were different for foreigners.

I attended the School of Art at Margaret St Campus. The Masters program is a disgrace. If you have a problem no one will help and the teaching is very poor and they have no awareness of mental health issues or just don’t care. Now I have lots of debit and didn’t learn much at all. It is a very toxic environment.

The Royal Birmingham Conservatoire is fantastic. Facilities and support from staff are excellent and ( I dare say) world-class. Shame it is tarnished with the same brush as BCU.

Difficult to summarise the experiences at City South, like numerous other students I also believe Birmingham City University do not care about their students. It is a in a constant battle with students rather than supporting and helping and listening to them, they can tell you what they can't do for this which is one of their strengths. Student Union is non existing, learning support is difficult, I wish I had chosen a different university to study the whole experience has not been worth the money. Beware of the false promises!!

Continuous errors and lies by other departments - be prepared to be past from Pilar to Post and life being made a living hell! When things don’t go right they are beyond a joke!

Does the student union even exist, if it does it sure isn’t making itself known. There has been no attempt to let students know of what clubs or societies are around or how to sign up for them. These societies do not host events either.

People are nice but the university itself is disappointing. The shop in the campus charged students ridiculous prices. Providing no materials to support students in their projects. Tutors act like we have no life, replying to students with vile email threatening to withdraw them from university no matter how hard the students ‘ personal lives are, to protect their own reputation. When asking for help, tutors are unsupportive. Being charged for using university ‘s facilities, paying £9250 a year purely to get a degree with no further support. Will never recommend to anyone

Currently studying Radiography at Birmingham City and I have mixed feelings about it all. The university is modern and there are plenty of teaching spaces, however I sometimes struggle to find social spaces to sit and talk with others. I expected there to be between 40-60 people on my course judging by what other universities said but somehow there are almost 120 students. Because of this the timetable department constantly has the group starting early and finishing very late with large time gaps in between to be able to put us in a lecture theatre. One of my modules isn't very interesting and seems like a waste of time, I sometimes feel like it would be better to use that time to increase the number of hours on the physics and anatomy modules. At City South Campus, there's no student union presence since all of the clubs and societies are over at City Centre, so it is easy to feel a bit cut off from everyone else.

It has been awful, anyone who says this uni is good is only in their first year. THIS UNIVERSITY DOES NOT CARE ABOUT IT'S STUDENTS!!!! If you can get that through your heads then you won't be disappointed (maybe) if you go here. Everything that this uni does is to further it's own name, often at the expense of providing a good student experience. This is often demonstrated by their lack of response following a student complaint/feedback. It has a 10% drop-out rate across ALL it's courses! I don't know how they can say that they have 82% student satisfaction (I can only imagine it's because they do not include negative comments in their scores). The only good thing about my whole experience is that my course has been funded by the NHS which means I leave without any student dept. Even then I don't think it has been value for money... If I could give this univeristy an overall score of no stars, then I would.

Very poor. At City South you are cut off from the social aspect of the uni - everything is at City Centre Campus. There is next to no Student Union presence here at the south campus. This university doesn't care about the students, it only cares about making themselves look good in the league tables. This means that you better forget about complaining since your complaints will never be addressed.

Very poor. Currently doing Speech and Language Therapy at City South Campus. The staff don't know what they are doing. There is no consistency in the marking from one lecturer to another, and the results are never moderated. They aren't positive markers and seem to believe that you have infinite time and word limits to write assignments. The course is badly structured. You'll often hear them go on about a 'spiraling curriculum' in which you build on previous knowledge. Sounds good right?! Only in theory though - in reality, it means that you learn everything in the first year and when the time comes for you to put it all together for the final year placement, you've forgotten most of it. The course focuses a lot on the paediatric aspect of speech therapy which isn't helpful since we are also assessed on the adult side of speech therapy. At City South you are cut off from the social aspect of the uni - everything is at City Centre Campus. There is next to no Student Union presence here.

I am currently studying Fine art at Margaret Street and moved from a different institute into the second year, I am overjoyed with how welcoming everyone has been, the staff and the students also. The student union doesn't really exist, but there are so many clubs to join. This doesn't really matter though, AS THE CITY IS WHERE TO BE ON A NIGHT OUT....THATS WHAT ITS THERE FOR. Curzon and Parkside are fantastic too, with amazing facilities. There are many career talks and presentations that you can go to, BUT just remember, especially all those writing negative reviews about BCU, WHAT YOU PUT INTO UNI, IS WHAT YOULL GET OUT OF IT!!!!!

Overall I regret choosing this university. Since the campuses now share a common space (they are moving everything to Millennium Point area) there's no additional parking, no additional transport, and the canteens are busier (and more expensive) than ever before. Course content: generally poor value. Tutors do their best in the convoluted and restrictive framework to which they work in. Courses are shortened/deadlines extended/assessment criteria changed/etc at the drop of a hat. Lecturers are either (a) so sedentary they're complacent and just do the bare minimum, (b) blag their way through the lecture they were given just this morning to deliver, or (c) recognise the failings of everyone else so work twice as hard as a result, in the quest to give the students some actual value. Student engagement has plummeted since 2014, which is when I started. Staff turnover is quite high (see above!) so consistency is absent. Complaints about couse content get ignored.

Spent £63 million on a brand new campus which is excellent but they have neglected students needs in the meantime in terms of teaching due to the change over and teachers having to learn new things. Could have made a bigger library as there is never any room unless you get there at 8am for a seat and sit there all day.

I attended the conservatoire which when through a lot of changes whilst I was there. What didn't change was the lack of facilities, based on the plans for the new building the same over crowding issues will exist. There simply aren't enough practice rooms. The teaching is mostly good. Feedback for performances can be somewhat subjective. There are too many orchestral projects to distract from personal practice and improvement.

Personally I am not supprised that this uni has dropped so much on the league tables. I would not recommend Birmingham City university for anyone wanting to do the Economics and Finance degree. The reason being the level and quantity of teaching is very lacking. During my second year of uni teaching hours were only 8 hours per week where as other uni's which offer very similar courses such as Coventry uni's 'financial economics' degree had double the teaching hours if not more. During the entire year we felt like BCU were trying to get away with the bare minimum of teaching hours and what was actually taught. Personally I don't believe it should even be called a BA, more a foundation degre due to the lack of mathematical modules or even Econmetrics, a very important component of Economics, that's right a finance degree with little maths, something that would quite badly affect post graduate prospects, I would personally recommend doing this course elsewhere

The university is good but they will only care about you if you suck up to them. The lessons are interactive but outside of the lessons it's hard to get involved unless you are one of their super stars.

BCU provides a lot of experiences for all students. The nightlife is amazing as there is somewhere for everyone, depending on varying music tastes. The uni is full of friendly, enthusiastic lectures and staff who do their best to get the best out of their students!

Birmingham City University is good if you live on campus. However if not it is hard take advantage of the facilities.

millennium point university is a brilliant modern uni and my course fashion business and promotion is a brilliant course lots of opportunities. But it would be a lot better if it was a campus university and the student union actually had nights out which people wants to go to.
