Hi, I’m planning on going to UCB this year. It’s a small uni so am just wanting to get some people talking that also plan on going :smile: What course? Have you got an offer yet? Are you staying in the Malting’s? Hopefully I get some replies lol
Hiya, I'm going there staring september :smile: I've got an unconditional offer to study bakery and patisserie technology - finished my a-levels last year and currently on a gap year. Not sure yet where I'm going to live as I've heard very mixed reviews on the Maltings

Aw I wasn’t expecting a reply so yay! I’ve got a conditional offer for Physiotherapy. I’m retaking a-levels so I’m 19 as I was doing physics and that was just awfully difficult and didn’t need it for physio anyway, so am doing biology PE and psychology :smile: Where would you live if not? I know lots of people around Birmingham as i live quite close but Maltings would be good I think to make lots of mates that go to the same uni as you, especially with freshers etc. What mixed reviews have you heard, as I’ve overall seen it is okay and it’s very cheap

I'm 19 too so that's reassuring cause I was worried I may be a year older than literally everyone else there. Good luck with retaking your a-levels, I hope that's going well. I thought the same thing, as everyone who lives there goes to UCB, but some of the google reviews and student crowd reviews are bad, likening it to a prison. I still might go there as some people say it's okay, and you are right that it's cheap, just trying to see what other options there are - canalside looks ok but also has mixed reviews. A lot of the accommodation is kind of expensive around birmingham

i didn’t even look into other accommodation than the unis own wtf was i thinking lol, canalside will definitely be one of my choices due to the proximity, i just had to do a quick check haha. i haven’t read up much so do you know the amount of people in each flat there?

Hey guys, I’m studying sports science. I know ucb is a smaller than other unis, I’m worried about the student life as it is a small uni :smile:
Hiii, that’s why I’m worried too lol. Especially cause only a few of my mates are planning on going to unis in Brum. I’ve applied for physio at UCB which is very full on so won’t be able to go out as much as others but still want to be able to go out sometimes hahaha. I’ve got a deposit at accommodation at canalside right now

I’ve already been and had my interview, got a conditional offer. It’s a nice place tbh inside looks good and stuff. There’s an applicant day I might go to but idk if I can be arsed to drive haha. Maybe get accommodation at canalside? I’ve put a deposit down on a flat with a 2nd year girl, a 1st year girl, and 3 first year lads including me (except I’m 19 so technically could’ve put 2nd year to show I’m 19 lol) x
