It’s a great experience for anyone who wants a change in their life. Everyone is very welcoming and the course inductions are amazingly held.

It’s a very welcoming atmosphere, with staff always there to help, I like the 24 hr library, benefits students who like to study during the night and need a quiet place away from home. It has a wide range of extra curricular activity for people who like to stay activeView more
I studied at BCU for Master’s in Business Management. In my tenure, I was a student at a good few UK universities so I’m in a reasonable place to make comparisons. The levels of entry are at the lower end of the scale. It also appears to languish in most University league tables at the wrong end. There were some portions of my course badly planned. In particular, one of the lecturers was less than even-handed in her marking and allowed her personal opinions to affect her attitude towards other students and their work. BCU’s administration roles were horrendously not good, and that had a direct effect on my and other academic outcomes.View more
Plenty of supporting programs and teams for students during the terms and after graduation or preparing a career.
During the term, students can get help from specialized techniques (workshops), Academic English support, learning soft wares.
Graduate plus help for the academy, Career plus help for preparing and hunting a job. The library in Curzon building is always open with a range of books.
teachers offer students a chance to integrate wider subjects and studies for the student, which expanded my horizons in this University. Overall, I am glad to study and meet diverse and nice people.
