Scary area, poor reputation

Last September (2004) I gained a place at UCE studying Radiotherapy through Clearing. Initially I had wanted to do a different course at Derby University but spontaneously changed my mind about a week before the course was to start, much to the dismay of my family, as it meant we had to move. So...

I've been a student and a lecturer at UCE and so have seen how it works from both sides of the fence. What's more I have had the benefit of inside knowledge. On student numbers UCE is actually one of the biggest universities in the country. Normally associated with the Perry Barr campus, about 3...

I started studying Visual Communication at the Birmingham Institute of Art and Design, University of Central England in September last month. The other UCE reviews all seem to be based on the Perry Barr campus but I am studying at Gosta Green and living at the Westbourne Road campus, so hopefully...

“City University”

published 24/07/2008

Compact area of study, easily mix with others

Spread out campuses, not much interaction with the...

The University of Central England, the former Birmingham Polytechnic has now been rebranded yet again as Birmingham City University to give it that metropolitan edge. Its main campus at Perry Barr is a 15 min walk across playing fields to where I live. City University, by sheer student numbers is...

“UCE - Better than you think”

published 06/09/2007

Friendly, accessable, good mix of people

Ageing Campus, area can be a drawback for some

Perry Barr Campus; An ex 60's polytechnic building which has seen better days mixed in with newer, plusher buildings. Some buildings such as Baker are being renovated at the moment so I look forward to being pleasantly suprised, although demolition would seem the better option. Lecture rooms in...

I studied at Westbourne Road Campus for 3 years whilst training as a nurse. I've recently been back to study further modules and each time found the campus, hectic, disorganised and at times unhelpful. At present there is a lot of building work going on, so studying or listening in lectures can...

Good

Good if you live at home

Scattered campuses

According to two midwives I met at a staff induction day the University of Central England is also know affectionately as the University of Cr*p (I will let you fill the missing vowel in), this is because the administration system there is apparently awful. Though I have never spent time at UCE...
