    so I really wanna do diagnostic radiography bc after some deep searching of the course I find it interesting however the only university in Birmingham that does this course is Birmingham City University.

    Im all up for going to the Uni to do the course but what puts me off is all the mixed attitude towards it, some people are saying its good but most people are saying its bad so like that leaves me confused.

    I was told that the bad thing about the University is the environment not the teaching, so for my course Im gonna be at the city south campus, is anyone currently at the uni at this campus? If there is what are your opinions on the teaching.

    Im really confused and would real appreciate If someone can help thanks x

    I'm a first year diagnostic radiography student at BCU. I'm at city south campus and I haven't got a single bad word to say about it. In my opinion, the environment is very good. Have you been told these negatives by other health students? Bear in mind that city south campus is purely for health courses, so you're not mixing with other faculties. Essentially it's one big health campus (that's about to get even bigger due to an expansion coming up). There are a few BCU campuses around Birmingham so what someone might have told you about one campus may not be true for another.

    Go to an open day and see it for yourself, I'm pretty sure your fears will disappear once you see what they have to offer. Good luck.

    Well people who don't go to BCU have told me, I don't think they know about the city south campus so I guess you're right. And like someone said on the previous thread that the placements are far, exactly how far are they?
    Its just currently I pay for my education bc I go to a private college and I want to be cautious where I apply and whether its worth it. Also I am going to an open day on 14th Nov so hopefully i'll be able to get everything else cleared up. Thank you x

    Most placements are grouped into 2-3's and they can be quite far. Personally I have one most furthest away (Hereford) but I also have 2 closer hospitals so it's not all bad. I'll PM you later with more info on placements. I'm at uni right now.

    You say you currently pay for your education. Are you aware that Radiography is an NHS funded course? You won't have to pay tuition fees. You can also claim back on your travel expenses when you go on placement.

    Have fun at the open day. You'll enjoy it. Ask loads of questions.
