" The university is very good overall, it is modern, clean, has plenty of diversity and the staff is always helpful. Studying during the pandemic was hard and I only had face 2 face lectures every two weeks for two months. From December to May, everything was online, so I could not enjoy the uni as much. However, BCU is an excellent uni and very rigorous, trains us to be the best. "

" Really enjoyed studying here at undergrad level, and have since come back to study at PhD. The campus has grown since graduating from my first degree, meaning there is more space to find areas to sit down and work. A friendly and welcoming atmosphere, and academic staff in the Psychology department are approachable and knowledgeable. "
