Birmingham City University Review
Birmingham City University
Mechanical Engineering BEng (Hons)
OVERALL UNIVERSITY RATING
08 Feb 17
The experience has been abhorrent, i cannot wait to transfer universities. The teachers support have been non existent, when giving advice and help on improving the course, i am always ignored. The way some courses are layed out is very amateur and lazy. Teachers do not have any motivation as they them selves are not motivated, they seem to just want to clock in and clock out. Paying £9000 for this is simply robbery, do not apply to.this university if you are somewhat motivated in being successful.
It does not do this very well. Teachers are not confident in student’s abilities
Course and Lecturers
Work is very easy, but it is made difficult with terrible teachers.
I spend most of my time in a seperate building, the student union’s involvement is almost invisible.
Old, very old.
Birmingham is pretty cool, loads of crazies about, not many racists.
Clubs and Societies N/A
Haven’t attended any as they take place in far away locations.
The support is abhorrent. The university complains about getting poor reviews, but when a student offers advice in doing something better, they simply ignore the student. Teachers just want to clock in and clock out, students do not matter. This is the majority case, some teachers arent very helpful but i found more help from assistant teachers who are 3rd or 4th year students.
It does moderately help, but no bursaries are available and it doesn’t seem to care much for certain subjects.
