New city-centre UCE is great news for Brum

As a graduate of the University of Central England (UCE), it has been a painful experience over the last couple of years to read about the school's continual decline. Being situated in the UK's second largest, and most racially harmonious, city, UCE has an important responsibility to perform, reflecting the nature of the world around it. The profession and the wider community would have been all the poorer if the school had closed (News, AJ 18.11.04).

My time there was an enlightening experience, providing a rich education of architecture and the harsh reality of modern urban life. Existing students should be proud to be associated with it, particularly those who have survived the politics of the last two or three years.

Congratulations should also go to the brains behind relocating the school to the city centre; it can only make the school a more accessible place. I only wish I could have studied there myself.
