Student (Former Employee) – Birmingham – 20 February 2018
A good college overall but unless you've got an issue management will deal with it very poorly.Communication is very limited here as an appointment is needed with everyone you need to talk with.Too many buildings also as i and a few others have gotten lost finding the colleges.

The best experience ever! Not only support given is amazing, but the quality of the information is brilliant too! UCB is a great way to move forward in life also I would recommend to any student to apply and enrol this UCB Campus !!!
Lecturer (Current Employee) – Birmingham – 14 December 2016
The time spent at UCB has been filled with fun, great students and great teams to work with. Yes, like all educationally led positions its hard work, some long hours, however UCB recognise this and you are awarded in one way or another, through bonuses, extra holidays etc. The timetables are fair for all and shared equally.

Working at the restaurant was really a good chance to acquire skill and knowledge of performing a good service for the customers. The dishes served where inviting to the customer and this meant the restaurant was always busy. The colleagues were a joy to be around and skills were transferrable amongst all of us. Management was very skilled and very helpful so much that the service was part of them.

Student Ambassador (Current Employee) – Birmingham, ENG – 22 June 2013
Student Ambassadors have a role of supporting and ensuring individuals coming in on open days are supported with the right care. There every need matters as we want them to be coming to the university. The day starts with putting up tables, chairs, long leaflets on rails and setting presentations, logging individuals in. However during the day, we have to make sure that people get all the information they need in order to know about the University College Birmingham. I have learnt many things by becoming a Student Ambassador, I have learnt to get to know new people while working and been able to boost my confidence. The individuals who I work with are able from various countries and they also vary in their courses. On the other hand, all the students work in a team in order to get the day through, we are set in places all over the university to ensure that people do go to the right places. The most hardest part of the day is being able to find the right individuals who you need to talk to, unless you are in the presentation form, you are not able to explain and answer their questions. However, the most enjoyable part of the job is being able to see the smile on someones face when they accept offers from the University.
The atmosphere is very calm and manageable where we are able to rush from one place to another.
Sometimes there is not time for lunch if you dont realise the time.
