Only one lift from ground floor in summer row. Should be more because they need to be accessible. Because if it's out of order I'm unsure how wheel chair user's could get to their floor. It's modern but lacks interesting and service around campus
Teaching is good and insightful We use a lot of premixes as it's quicker instead of learning how to make the product from scratch
Everything is as it should be , perhaps they should be more flexible with the timetables
The timetable is chaotic
Very easy to find, with good parking
Very well placed and clean
It is amazing in its culinary facilities aswell as helping students to grow by providing them resources. It would work better though if food facilities are kept open for the staff and students who are studying/practical/lectures late into the night instead of closing early.
the course is delivered in person, there is one on one tutorial times where a student can talk to a lecturer and plenty of hours to make up the course. I wish that there was more practical hours though.
there is afforadble accomodation in the city centre which is gated and is close to the university. It is also close to a street full of bars, pubs and clubs.
the uni halls are in a great location but the wifi is almost non existant.
Amazing care for girls referring to bathroom supplies. Thanks for caring!
Amazing teachers who can help any time and who know how to communicate!
The way of teaching is the best, not so much vegetarian food.
The best is that there aren't many assignments, its more like to study than rather boring assignments. Finance is stressing me out.
I really like it, the location is perfect.
Its specious, but not lot of seats.
Student life can be a little more difficult when trying to socialise compared to those who live in accommodation and don’t drink or party making it harder to make friends outside of class.
-Great lecturers -Very helpful if we’re confused or stressed about upcoming exams -Some lessons aren’t recorded so can be a little harder to catch up on if you’ve missed a lesson -nowhere to charge laptops in class rooms at moss house
personally i enjoy the course i study but haven’t had time to explore the whole campus as i only have 2 lesson per week. this is also an inconvenience as i moved home for this reason and now commute to my lessons so i don’t feel like i’m part of the community at UCB. however, in terms of study i recommended ucb if the field you want to study in is practical based skills as they offer so many industry inspired areas for you to elevate your skills further.
more online lessons is inconvenient as i struggle to learn virtually- we are also not in a national lockdown so i don’t think it makes sense to have minimal in-class lessons as this puts us a disadvantage to be more interactive in lessons
Birmingham is great for study however save an additional £1000+ on top of your student loan before coming here, especially if you’re from the north because living down here is so expensive for some reason
I had so many issues staying at mary sturge. Water leaks that took them 3 months to fix, broken radiators and only giving small heaters on a “first come first served basis”, there is no communal area, besides the common room which has a table tennis table, also no TV or sofas in the kitchen - this place is convenient as it’s a 5 minute walk from the city centre however there are better accommodations in the area which are cheaper
So far I have really enjoyed my time at UCB and I look forward to what is to come. I can honestly say since being at UCB my confidence has increased massively, all my lecturers have been nothing but supportive and kind. The experiences and opportunities that have been offered on my course have also been amazing. My only complaints would be about the amount of time spent at uni for the amount I am paying as I am in twice a week and both of those are half days, (obviously for some this might be seen as a positive.)
Would prefer more face to face lectures however when we are in it is always fab.
Birmingham has great transport links. It is also a very diverse city
The uni has really friendly staff and tutors are very helpful. I get along really well with my peers and have already seen progress in my skill set.
I much prefer the blended learning as it aids my travel and reduces costs spent. It also makes it more fun to go straight into practical work when I get into campus.
