Degree: Biology/Biological Sciences, General
Graduation Year: 2006

UAB is an excellent school that caters greatly to the health professions. I majored in Biological Sciences and really had some amazing teachers (and tough) who I will never forget. They do a wonderful job of making sure you understand the material they teach and having back up support if what is taught in class is not enough. And the campus is very easy to navigate, I never had any trouble finding my classes. Most students on campus are very friendly and very willing to help you around. My only drawback is the major that I picked. If you plan on getting another higher education degree in medicine, nursing, optometry, etc. then a degree in biology works just fine and will give you a good jumpstart in getting into any of those schools. A biology degree by itself does not attract great paying jobs unless your intention is to work in a lab or become a teacher of science. Generally speaking my UAB experience was great!

Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2016

UAB is a great school for any healthcare field. I focused on healthcare management and it has done wonders for my career. Since I graduated in 2016 I have moved to a new city and will be returning to UAB to complete master's degree. The professors are always open to questions and will do whatever is necessary to make sure their students succeed. It is an honor to have obtained a degree from such a wonderful place.

Degree: Civil Engineering, General
Graduation Year: 2017

I really enjoyed my time studying at the University of Alabama at Birmingham because I was able to interact with the professors and students better due classes being smaller. UAB is a diverse, beautiful college and I hope other students choose to study here as well.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2014

UAB is a fantastic nursing school. Most of the courses are on campus. They have an excellent skills lab with some top notch equipment. The coursework is difficult, but it adequately prepares you for the real nursing world. The instructors are great and willing to help whenever needed. I was able to pass my boards on the first try, with only 75 questions.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2016

I really enjoyed the program. The professors really made you feel like you had the support to get through anything. They made sure that you understood the curriculum, and went out of their way at times to provide aide. I definitely learned a lot, and I highly recommend the school to others!

Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2015

UAB is an excellent place to receive your undergraduate education. Students share a strong sense of community and devotion to studies. Campus is lively and bustling, but you will also see students all over campus studying. UAB provides students with opportunities and knowledge that helps to prepare them to excel in their careers. In many programs students have group projects in many of their classes that teach teamwork and develop professionalism. Many classes are offered online, allowing students to work and obtain their degrees simultaneously. Although the campus is not traditional, it is moving in that direction while still feeling like a downtown college campus.

Degree: Molecular Biology
Graduation Year: 2012

i enjoyed it. I liked being able to be in a big city and go out and make friends with people who I wasn't in school with. It was challenging and I felt like I got a good education

Degree: Art & Design
Graduation Year: 2015

The city is much too busy to have a good college experience. Parking is absolutely atrocious, there's way too much crime, and the school is completely intent on their profit margin. Students' education is far down on the priority list.
