I love my university, events it is providing, great opportunity for students to learn more instead of just sitting and listening to the lecture. I would recommend it to anyone
They are making a great effort, organising a lot of events
What I like most is the fact that they are really interesting, but I don't like boring seminars
I dont have an opinion
Very good quality
I’m not interesed in sports but societes are fine
It is perfect place fo study. There is a lot of support for every student from lecturers and other university staff. Lecture rooms are comfortable, modern and cosy.
There happends a lot of carrier fairs, where students can meet a variety of employers. Also university Hired team really helps for every student to get employed
I like the most lecturers. They are very supportive and helping. Also, the buildings are nice and cosy.
Yes, it is in the city center
A lot of different societies
There is a lot of support. Staff is really helping
Brilliant experience, amazing state of the art buildings, great lectures and facilities. Really good place to study at, great location. Course well organised and plenty off support available. The only downside is lack of parking, wich is currently being built i believe.
We have job fare
I love my course
Not sure, never been told where that is?
Brilliant, library could do with more books and jornals
Brilliant location, good transport links, shopping, library, food outlets
Very interesting to study with international student from over the world. Very connected and friendly atmosphere and easy to get some friends. Accommodation life is crazy and cool, you have your own room and it takes not more than 5 min to get anywhere.
Very different and various, good preparation for our future life
Heard just good things about, many different facilities!
No experience with that
Perfect! 2 min to Uni, 2 min to city center
Gym very close!
It’s been fun and stressful. Whenever I needed assistance with assignments I always had help from UCB. Meeting new persons from all over the world has been a great experience.
Have various career employment fairs and hired helps with getting you employment
Most: very international and not many exams Least: nothing
Need to do more for students
Yes it is good
Needs improvement but overall it’s a 6
Really fun and great, freshers was good but I am a bit poor now, amazing friends and people to talk to, the lessons are interactive and engaging. Assignments are well spaced out I love meeting new people and friends and have deffo made friends for life from this experience
Hired @ ucb is great, and unitemps aswell
Most: the lessons are fun, lecturers make it fun and easy to follow Least: the times of lessons could be more spaced out
Fun, lots of events, activities to do I love the ping pong table
Really good, accessible and new locations and gorgeous buildings I’m proud to be apart of it
Yes, lovely amenities and close to the city centre and they have lots of food options
Really good, I’m not apart of the teams but they look really good
Amazing and helpful loads of support from all adults
The uni is great, the lecturers are helpful, I'm actually getting good grades due to help and overall it has been the best and i can't wait for the rest of it!
They set up job hiring events
I liked the most how they teach you the things that are actually on the exams.
Amazing, much better than other universities with the same course
Great, 20 minute walk away
Many different societies and sports to choose from
Great, you can schedule an appointment with your lecturers.
Its been okay, needed to take a gap year between year 2 and 3 for my mental health and they were very understanding. I would definitely recommend this uni for any future students
Theh support us eith lots of work placements and help us with knowledge for after uni
I like that the tutors help each student
Yes, but sometimes i would prefer to live in the city, because of train corruptions.
Unsure dont use them
This experience was something i have never experienced it before. I had some down moments but my tutors helped me a lot on thoes situations, but I had some good moments as well. I strongly believe that university life is a life changer.
HIRE is a department in the university and they help us alot to find placement for us. They often email us recent opportunities which is available and related to our course and then we apply to those placements. There is a session every week called graduate advantage where our tutor helps us to find placement for ourselves and also invites guest speakers to give us talk about thier success in the same field.
Practicals are the main things i like about my course. The thing i do not like about the course is optional modules which is not related to our course and felt like time wasting.
University College Birmingham student guilds is very poor. No communication links between student guilds and the students. They do not have experience to organize some kind of activities to bring students together. No such a trips. Bad thing about them is they asked students to plan things for them self. There is no games in student guilds area, empty Table Tennis table with no ball and bats. No winding machine for drinks and snakes. Guilds space is located in Maltings and there was a small shop but for some reason it has been shut down this year and because of this we had difficulties we food and drinks when we had lesson in the Maltings. Students Guilds needed to be better and at least organise Christmas gathering for students, it was very very disappointed from them.
Library is good and the staff is also friendly. New building is just open this semester called Moss House, where we have brand new facilities for our course like human performance lab. Good thing about UCB is they provide us a tablet, which we can use it in the lectures for research purposes and make notes. Plus doing assignment on tablet is a life saver. Food in the canteen could be better, not many options in food. Kick Start card is provided to every student, which we use it for our uniform and buy books from kick start website.
Yes it is right in the city centre and I can walk to the university as i lives in city centre.
Sport society is a joke as they have very limited sport options. They need to add more sports like cricket, basketball, volleyball, hockey, Badminton to the list.
Support wise is 10 out of 10, tutors are always available when we need help. Graduate Advantage is a session every week, this session is specifically for help and support which we gets from our tutors. Feedback on assessments are clear and helpful and learn from the mistakes which we made during assessments.
I have enjoyed every part of it because although it was a challenge, it enables me to put my Knowsley into practice and improve as a practitioner. Also I was able to gain part time employment which has improved my employability prospects as my skills have advanced massively.
University College Birmingham has an entire department dedicated to helping individuals build on their professional portfolios and improve on the qualities employers look for, for example CV’s or cover letters. This department is known as the hired department which caters for all students and even helps individuals kickstart their own businesses.
I love how placement is embedded within my academic studies as it enables me to put my knowledge and skills into professional practice alongside gain experience in a real life world. If I was to improve on the course then I would add more placement to enable students to gain as much real world experience.
I think the student union represents all individuals regardless of individual differences and provides a platform for students to confidently voice their opinions or concerns on certain topics. I am thinking of becoming apart of the student union as the community at UCB is very welcoming.
The facilities at UCB are brilliant as again the resources cater for courses and enable individuals to get the best learning experience with real life equipment which could potentially be used in work life.
My university is in great distance to my house and work place which is one of the few reasons why I decided to study at University College Birmingham. I am extremely pleased with the location of all three campuses within the university and I look forward to completing my degree here and hopefully applying for a postgraduate study. All 3 campuses including my house are within walking distance. In terms of local amenities, I could not be more thankful that UCB is at the center of Town which enables me to have easy access to my workplace, alongside social life. For example, I am able to eat out with friends in between lecture breaks and lunch breaks with enough time to walk back to the university. Thus, I am extremely happy with both the location of the university and the local amenities provided.
My university provided a student guild service whereby students can register to take part in multiple events including physical activity and sporting events. The student guild updates individuals on the type of activities or recreational activities the university offers alongside any events that may be coming up. Therefore, there are a wide range of societies provided for all students. UCB also offers payed roles as a student ambassador or jobs within marketing.
The support is amazing, the feedback from assignments are very detailed enables students to pinpoint the area of struggle and improve on them for the next examination.
