Very few!

You'll rarely find an unbiased account of a university - especially not from someone who has actually studied there - and this will undoubtedly be no exception as your 'alma mater' always has a place in your heart. However, I am going to attempt to weigh up the good and bad of the University of...

I transferred to Birmingham University at the start of this year, having previously been at Southampton and having had a thoroughly miserable time! I'm pleased to say that I absolutely love it at Birmingham and its been so easy to settle in that I think transferring was the best decision I ever...

As I sit here in the University of Birmingham's library I look back on the past 3 years. With my exams just finished I am officially no longer a part of the University. I feel nostalgic when thinking about my first year: how young I felt and how new everything was. The independence after the...

i am only here for 3 years, wish it could be more.

I am a student at the University of Birmingham in my first year of the popular course; Sports and Exercise Sciences. Although it is a difficult university to get in to, there are hundreds of different courses to choose from if you are not accepted on your favoured course. Also, they are quite...

Birmingham is Britain's Second City, but the University of Birmingham is second to none. I first attended the University of Birmingham as an undergraduate from 1975 to 1979, where I gained a BA(Hons) in Music and German. I am now nearing the end of two years of part-time study for the degree of M...

“The University of today.”

Friendly, spacious, well located and alive!

Remembering you're there to study!

Having spent 3 years at Birmingham University as an Undergraduate studying a BSc in Sports and Exercise Studies, I feel the true excellence of this University needs to be shared. Here are the main factors that give this University it's true appeal: 1.Location 2.Campus 3.Halls of Residence 4...

“Much more than a dank city”

published 12/07/2000

Great social life, nice city, more than a bullring

Not thought of as a nice place

Upon hearing the name Birmingham you would think of a grimey city stuffed somewhere in the Midlands. I think you would be pleasantly suprised about how nice the city is. I'm not from Birmingham, i grew up in Somerset but was still taken back by the city. The campus is great, its very green and...

Location, facilities, cheap prices

You won't want to leave

Like most students, I had many apprehensions when i chose the university to spend the next few years of my life at. Coming from London,I wondered how Birmingham City Centre would compare and what the people 'up north' would be like. Looking back, it was the best decision i ever made, and loved...

Some of the halls of residence aren`t that good

I`ve just graduated from Brum Uni this year having studied electronic engineering for the last four years there. I don`t want to dwell on the course details (I`ve written another Ciao opinion on that), but want to give an idea of how great the university and city is. The student union (known as...

“Brum fantastic”

published 28/07/2000

Top uni, excellent facilities

Halls!

As I expect most people are when they leave home for the first time, I was extremely apprehensive when coming to uni but my time at Birmingham university has been amazing. I can't say I've enjoyed every minute of it but I've been here for two years and I've met so many new and interesting people...

None

The University Of Birmingham (that's in Edgbaston - not Aston, or UCE - I hate people who ask that!) is one of the countries top universities. Located right in the centre of the country, no-one should have much trouble getting there, as it's equally accessible from each end of the country. The...

Bit too much sociology, psychology

Having just completed by 1st year I can safely say Medicine at Bham is great. from the start you have a whale of a time organised by Medsoc and it continues throughout the year. If you are into rugby then Bham is the place to go. We have a massive "Club" which is one of the best, we won the med...

“BRUMS UNI TO GEORGE CLOONEY”

Everything

Too many pubs so you are always in-toxicated

Yes i studied drama here for four years and for all that time i must say it was the best four years of my life. The location of this uni is brilliant. You only have to start walking and in you are by the shops or the local pubs and clubs. Being a student a large part of my time was in these pubs...

What can you say about your time at University? You'll look back and remember what a wonderful time you had there, and forget all the hard work! I did four years on a Manufacturing Engineering Course and Commerce (BEng BCom) - quite an unusual combination and pretty good to say you have two...

I completed my Bachelor of Arts degree in 2002 and was glad to have studied at Birmingham. Even though I have lived in Birmingham all my life, the excellent reputation the University of Birmingham has tempted me to stay in my home town to study. As a result, I cannot reliably comment on the...
