It is really a perfect apartment that gives me a homecoming experience. I met a lot of friends here and my neighbors are all very friendly and warmhearted. We built snowmen in the yard, which was our best memory during the lockdown.
Students union could be cheaper and do more things such as gigs! Its soo pricey considering its supposed to be for us students!
Good range of societies however the guild dont help to run them very much and the sports clubs dont often take novice's!
Careers service were a waste of time when I went for advice. Campus is good with lots of facilities, study spaces and computers
Amazing diverse uni and Birmingham is an incredible place to be a student, transport into the city is cheap, fast and easy and lots to do. The guild of students hosts regular events and hall RA's host regular events as well. The uni want you to have a great nightlife!
Campus is stunning and not too big/small. Theres so many societies to choose from with events on all the time so it's easy to get involved. The SU (guild of students) doesn't have much on compared to other unis with regard to nightlife, I think they have one night on every fortnight or something. Careers are really good and there's wifi all over campus
It looks nice during winter, but can be bad to walk through when it is windy and raining in the winter, there is a fresh food stall that sells delirious strawberries and cherry tomatoes, but lots of other fruit and veg too.
Overall Birmingham has a really great atmosphere. The student union set up loade of fairs and events in the first few weeks so people could settle in and the sports and over all facilities of the uni haelve exceeded my expectations.
Such a great Uni, the campus is beautiful and there always so much going on- the facilities are good- but with a new library and sports centre being built, they're only going to get better!
Our guild of students is the nicest one I've seen, after visiting lots of friends Uni's- and the guild night out, fab and fresh is one of the best nights out in Birmingham!
There's so many eating places on campus, with 3 costas, a Starbucks and subway, and then a lot of the university's own Go Cafés dotted around- and the Uni burritos are reason enough to come to Birmingham!
Birmingham city itself is so great as well due to the diversity in it's night life- there's a night out to suit everyone's taste- and the shopping is fab due to the bullring! Plus you have loads of a cool places to visit such as the jewellery quarter, star city and cannon hill park!
The university is in a central location and its medical school especially has a great reputation and the unique advantage of being associated with Queens Hospital Birmingham, one of UKs finest hospitals.
The University campus is great; very green, with plenty of study spaces and places to eat. The Guild do an amazing job as the Student Union with a vast variety of events which cater for all. There are so many societies to chose from, all of which attend the Societies Fair at the beginning of the year and joining fees are reasonable. The internet is free for all with an intranet log in on campus, it works most of the time.
Library needs to be bigger to accommodate more students, although they are building a new one and there are other places on campus to study. Loads of different societies to join, with mostly low joining costs. Campus feels a bit rural given it is outside the city centre but the train will get you there in 5-8 minutes from the Uni's own station.Fresher's club events should accommodate more clubs and more music tastes. Most of the accommodation is a ridiculous price, for some unknown reason- this isn't London.
