There isn’t any worst aspects for BCU students. Even it’s a proud moment to study from BCU. Like there student support and faculty support and even management system is much better and easier than other universities.
Its an excellent university in terms of reputation and teaching quality. Teaching staffs are highly qualified,efficient and cordial to students.Under their guidance learning is a fun.BCU have been recognized for their research projects-positively impacting on local policy and practice.The employbility rate of BCU is 97%,which means graduate from this university is joining to work or any courses just after six months of completing their course from BCU,certainly that's a big advantage.Locationwise it's in an amazing place,however i think classrooms could be more spacious in comparisn to students number.Overall I must say it's an tremendous journey to be here as a student and I am enjoying my student life here at fullest!
It's a fulltime on campus taught course, though some academic seminars,guidelines,workshop events take place online at a regular basis and it's an extra advantage!Teaching staffs are very responsive to students,we can contact with them in person or via email whenever we need.
Overall, the university is satisfying and good. However, it would be great if student facilities like the number of microwaves and the student pantry area could increase.
The course is good and intensive. It is conducted face-to-face. The lecturers provided lots of support. I am enjoying the course but maybe 1 year is very tight to complete the course content. As the course is still considered new, there's always room for improvement. For instance, core textbooks in the library could be increased or have online copies, and administration work for placement could be better as there were some delays.
More facilities like Free Gym for students discounted campus shops should be provided to students . Cafe's rate lists should be controlled
Teaching Quality is overall Good
Library availability is impressive and wide range of books are available to gain enough knowledge The worst aspect in the university is internet issues(WiFi) is vey slow at some of the university locations
Professors are friendly and supportive More real life scenarios are explained Nothing bad
It has been an amazing experience so far
It has been an interesting experience so far
As far as i have been here, the staff members and the support team were really helpful and friendly. The workshops with respect to the module gives great knowledge. The modules are in line with inclination for my career. I even enjoy the events that are held in the university. The opportunity of studying abroad has inculcated the enthusiasm in me to study more about my course practically which i would love to be a part of. I really hope to see myself in a place that i have thought about with the help of knowledge and skills that i’ll develop during my course period. At the entrance i would suggest to keep a blueprint of the infrastructure like we have it in the mall with the direction of specific faculty offices and many more for new students who feel hard to locate even after we get a tour initially.
Until now everything is in place with respect to the teachings and the tutors. The teachings are in depth which is why i have come abroad to study. The learning environment is competitive with the students from different countries helping us to work more on ourselves to move towards are goal.
The work opportunities are quite low and the working hours are less as compared to the other countries. After i came to birmingham the very first time, the stories of snatching and stabbing is so common to hear about. The best part is that it’s closer to the city centre and to my accommodation as well.
Everyone is friendly and helpful.
Teaching staff is quite good and try there best to make session interesting but yet can improve more
Birmingham City University (BCU) is a great place to study because of its amazing student support and improving facilities. Students are respected by all staff and have access to a range of support services to assist with job finding, financial aid or mental health aid to name a few. The university is also constantly upgrading its facilities to provide better experiences for its students. For example, a whole new building has been built and, particularly useful for my course, an electroencephalogram (EEG) machine has also been installed! On the PhD, there are opportunities to practice your presentation and conference skills through research days, writing retreats and regular inter-department meetings. Academic staff are very friendly and down-to-earth, ready to assist you in many ways other than from academic point.
The course is mostly conducted at home although the facilities are in place should you wish to work at the uni. There are labs for experiments with lots of testing facilities. The PhD itself is an independent research project and as such, there are no taught lessons. You will receive regular contact with supervisors who are always on hand to assist you.
