    Hey Zebby1999,

    That's great to hear! Hopefully we'll be seeing you in September! :banana:

    If you have any questions in the meantime, just ask.

    Hello everybody,

    I applied to study at Birmingham City this September.

    There have been two deaths in my family this year, which has impacted on my mental health and grades. However, my college very kindly wrote me a supporting letter to say that I was fully capable of achieving a good grade.

    The university simply dismissed this letter and rejected my application. I have the option to go to three other great universities, so I must emphasise that I am not bitter in any way, but hate the thought of anybody else potentially being treated the same.

    To anybody who has received an offer, all I ask is that you consider if this is the type of university you would like to attend when there are many others out there, who are a lot more supportive and understanding in times of need.

    I genuinely hope that you all have a great time wherever you decide to go.

    Best wishes,
    Daryll

    I am in the process of choosing my undergraduate accommodation in the City Centre and found these situated to my place of study at the Curzon building:
    Jennens Court,
    Curzon gateway,
    University Locks and
    The Heights
    I was wondering if any previous students had lived in any of these accommodations or could give any positives/negatives to any. Also, does anyone know if Jennens Court has a common room?

    Thank you.

    Hey qwertymaria,

    Have you looked at our new accommodation pages on our website yet? You can see full details of each of the halls of residence you've mentioned which might help you decide!

    They are all quite similar in style, facilities and price and are all really close to the Curzon building for you, so I wouldn't worry about making the wrong decision.

    Jennens Court does have social areas yes, I'm pretty sure they all have common rooms.

    Jennens, Curzon and Uni Locks are all pretty much on campus and no more than a 5 minute walk, The Heights is a little further to walk though but still really close.
    However, I lived in the Heights in my first year and the one thing I wish I knew beforehand was that as it's private accommodation and really close to Aston Uni, it wasn't all BCU students but a mix of Uni's so I was in a flat with all Aston 2nd years which was a little tricky through freshers! But you might be able to state preferences to live with other first years if you were bothered about that. I think the others automatically group people into years of study.

    I hope this helps, but just ask if you have anymore questions!

    I have a conditional offer from BCU for fashion business and promotion. I have to get BBC and I'm predicted BBB. I didn't have an interview. I haven't actually been to an open day to look at this specific course so I don't really know what it's like but I am definitely interested in the sound of it. 😊😊

    Hey Kirstie!

    Well done on your conditional offer! :rave:

    If you haven't been to an Open Day yet there's still time to come and see the campus and fashion facilities. We have an Open Day coming up next month on Saturday 17 June. It will give you a really good idea of what it's like to study here and ask any questions about the course and meet the tutors that could be teaching you. I'd definitely suggest coming along

    Are you from near-by Birmingham or would you be moving here?

    If you have any other questions about the course, uni or student life here, just shout!

    It was an Open Day so open to everybody to come along, did you make it?
    That's great! Bristol isn't too far on the train if you need to go back and forth

    I'm scared I'll miss out by one grade but I have my A in EPQ to help with ucas points if that happens, hope it'll be enough. :/
