University of Alabama - Birmingham Graduate Reviews

15 reviews
Overall, my experience with UAB has been wonderful! The city is vibrant and fairly diverse, while still maintaining the classic southern charm characteristics. People on my side of campus (medical campus) are very friendly and I love that the food scene caters to the students — the bars serve their drinks in science laboratory beakers! The campus itself is very nice and the hospital is well kept. My classrooms are clean and have excellent technological services, which contrasts quite significantly to some of my undergraduate college’s older rooms. The education I have received has been very helpful and thorough, and it seems as though the professors really are interested in the success of their students (as I’d hope they’d be...). Certain areas of Birmingham feel fairly unsafe, but aside from that characteristic that most cities have, there are many incredible neighborhoods of Birmingham that aren’t (i.e. 5 points, Highlands, etc).

I love UAB because you get to experience a world that is extremely diverse! While it is so different in many ways, you are able to bring your own uniqueness to UAB and become apart of their family. They encourage and accept all types of individuals in order to not only support the students attending the school, but support the future of the world. With UAB being able to accept and welcome such a diverse group of individuals it only benefits them more and continues to grow their success, because they learn from each other and grow with each other, making their goal to better society as one family.
Excellent opportunity to complete my graduate degree online. The flexibility in the schedule, open modules, and assignments allows me to work at my own pace while still working to provide for my family. There is an area of opportunity for the students to get to know the professors and vice versa. A student and faculty mixer while on campus would be a good idea and should be implemented.
