“Good research/teaching body with internal problems”

As far as teaching and researching are concerned, the institution works very well and the facilities are good and available. The staff working at those is friendly and knowledgeable and there is generally a good atmostphere within the community. It is a place of knowledge and one enjoy having the opportunity to be part of it.

The internal part of the university (the one that has nothing to do with teaching or researching) leaves a lot to be desired. There's a distinct lack of communication which ends up have repercussions on HR, finances and payrols. Red tape doesn't do any good and this makes the relations quite strained especially when everything takes so much time!

Being in the company of great minds and being part of the institution

“Need to shed its old skin to be reborn as a modern institution”

It is a great univesity to be part of as it a very good reputation (always nice on a CV), its resources are fair and the teaching staff helpful and knowledgeable.There's a good work/life balance, the benefits are good and there are opportunities for progression.

It is old-fashioned and would need to come into the twenty-first century. All online resources need to be modernised, as well as the way the university is managed from the inside. More transparency is needed so that everything can be dealt with quickly and efficiently.

Facilities are old but accessible and the admin staff needs to be trained

“Great team and working environment, more funds and publicity needed for research”

Cost of living in Birmingham is a plus and the actual campus of the University itself is lovely I worked with a great team, lovely people and very helpful, generally people were co-operative and wanted to provide you with everything you needed

As with every university you can always do with more funds for research and although it's sound you are not working for top tier research like at Oxford and Cambridge. More exposure is needed for the research – it's currently not promoted enough. It might help to bring in some higher powered people – even if it means paying more for them

Great campus

The University of Birmingham was founded in 1900 at the initiative of local citizens and is now one of the largest in the UK offering degrees across a wide range of disciplines from Education to Medicine and from Engineering to Law. The University is primarily based on its Edgbaston campus. It offers its community of over 25,000 students and 6,000 staff an attractive environment in which to study and work. It is situated only two miles from the centre of a major European city and yet is set amongst green and leafy parkland which is largely pedestrianised, and provides a beautiful backdrop for imposing Victorian redbrick buildings as well as some striking modern architecture.
