    FEEDBACK ABOUT UNIVERSITY

    Because it was the best for primary education. The other fact was that it was close to my home when I say close it took me two buses to get to university. I got myself a student bus pass and for each of term as I would need it to get to placement as well.


    Course Curriculum - 

    Fantastic and very thorough. They support you so much and the lecturers are just amazing at the way they deliver lectures. The activities they plan are great and really stimulate me as a student. It makes me determined to do well.

    BCU BIRMINGHAM REVIEW

    It was close to home and I read great reviews about the Business School. I was able to commute there daily and it was also in the centre of the city which meant there were other facilities in the surrounding area.


    Course Curriculum - 

    The final year of my degree was the only one which I felt really inspired me and taught me about Business and Management. The first 2 years however I felt lacked depth and there was so much more I could have learned in that time.
