This course is fab!! You won’t be disappointed if you choose it and they teach you valuable techniques to use in the field of theatre, I’ll be sad when it all ends but excited about career options. The university is really big and they have loads of facilities so you can’t really go wrong with Birmingham. Campus Advisor
I absolutely love this city!!! Nightlife is so good and so many friendly people. The city has one of the biggest student campuses so for meeting new people you can't go wrong. My course is ace and the work load is manageable which I like, its taught by some good lecturers. Campus Advisor
Edinburgh is so amazing, I absolutely love this city. Nightlife is ok but scenery makes up for it!! D L
Enjoying it S B
Manchester city has loads going on and two massive football clubs. Food places are good and you’re not far away from the city centre, it’s about a 15 minute walk or a short bus ride. Lots of places to go at night. Liked my course and the lecturers taught well. - Anonymous -
Good course, good career prospects, worth considering. H J
The uni is so close to the city so you can walk everywhere, accommodation has been good so far so no complaints there. Liverpool is such a nice city! I had some reservations before I came here but I’m glad I went for this one. The course is hard work and lots of extra work to do but I’m learning lots. -Anonymous -

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.
