I’ve just spoke with admissions and they’ve had a delay in processing law & social science so we’ll be offered or rejected after the new year.

Hi,

We know that waiting for decisions can be the hardest part! Rest assured that our Admissions team are busily working through applications as fast as they can.

If it's been a couple of weeks and you want to put your mind at ease, you can contact the admissions team for our School of Law on +44 (0)121 331 6296 / [email protected]

Hope this helps!

Hello everyone, I just wanted an informed opinion from the people of this group. I recently got an admission confirmation from the Birmingham City University(BCU) for their MSc in Management and International Business. So I had a few questions.

1) How is the teaching?
2) How is the placement scene?
3) Is the course worth it?
4) How is the ROI(Return on Investment?)
5) How is the living standard there?
6) How much is the average package/salary for graduates?

Please feel free to get back to me as per your convenience.

P.S: My joining is in Feb 2020.

Thanks and best regards.
Hi,

I am in my final year and to be honest the teaching is good depending on th course, tutors, otherwise the they are disorganized and God forbid there is an issue that you want resolved then they will put you through hell. Currently, there is numerous advertising around BCU but the real test is how they treat individual students when something has gone wrong. You will be passed from person to person and they will try their best not to help matters. My experience of BCU has been terrible and I would not recommend this university

Hi!

You can bring parents along to Applicant Taster Days, but there may be parts of the schedule where we ask them to sit out - so that you can get the most from the experience, ask any questions you might have, and meet other applicants! Some of our subject areas provide a parents lounge for them to wait in, but often guests choose to use this as an opportunity to go and explore Birmingham!

Which courses were you looking at studying? If you let me know, I can look into the schedules for you and best advise.

Hi Abbie,

For the Social Sciences Applicant Taster Days, parents are welcome to come along to the talks, but the activity sessions are for applicants only. Parent Q&A sessions will also be available throughout the afternoon, if your guests want to sit in on one of those. You can find the schedule and a tonne of other useful information to help you plan your day here.

I applied for advanced computer science, and got a conditional offer. Having met my academic conditions, I sent the Uni my mark sheets, and Another condition on my offer letter was to pay half of my fees; so I did this and informed the Uni, and provided a bank statement also.but they didnt reply...its been 7or 8 days...Im confused...still, they did not give me a straight forward answer about the cas issuing date, and I haven't received any acknowledgement from them regarding CAS letter. Any advice?
