Microbiology is a great course and it’s exactly what I was expecting with coming to university, there are times when the work load becomes a bit much but then you’ve just got to make sure you organise things really well. I’m not too keen on the practicals as they could be improved. Campus Advisor
Birmingham as a city has grown on me and now I really love it, the halls are not too bad in first year but it’s more fun when you get to pick your own house in year 2 as you can then live with friends. Uni life is a big step up from school but it’s much more enjoyable. My course is really good as it allows me to choose lots of different modules/units which I can use towards my career.

The business degree I did was alright, feedback on work could have been improved a lot, the course was interesting and l learn't lots of useful facts which I hope will help in the real world! A lot to cover over the three years and the organisation and timetabling of the course could have been better. Campus Advisor

My course is quite demanding and requires a lot of work after hours, so you need to just be prepared for that at uni. Apart from that it’s all good. -Anonymous -

Enjoying it S B
This uni is ok, staff are helpful, it doesn’t have a big name like the main Manchester University but for some courses it’s really well renowned. Staff on my course were helpful for the most part.

About this University
Over the last five centuries and more, we’ve constantly worked to push the boundaries of what’s possible. We’ve fostered the talents of seven Nobel laureates, one Prime Minister and Scotland’s inaugural First Minister. We’ve welcomed Albert Einstein to give a lecture on the origins of the general theory of relativity.
Scotland’s first female medical graduates completed their degrees here in 1894 and the world’s first ultrasound images of a foetus were published by Glasgow Professor Ian Donald in 1958. In 1840 we became the first university in the UK to appoint a Professor of Engineering, and in 1957, the first in Scotland to have an electronic computer.
All of this means that if you choose to work or study here, you’ll be walking in the footsteps of some of the world’s most renowned innovators, from scientist Lord Kelvin and economist Adam Smith, to the pioneer of television John Logie Baird.
