    • About Birmingham

      Birmingham offers everything a student could want from their university experience.

      With a variety of academic institutions to choose from, shopping districts the envy of Europe and Ozzy Osborne as a native son, ‘Brum’ is perfect for taking the next step. Students of the biggest uni in the city, the University of Birmingham, can boast their own railway station, their own art gallery and hopefully a degree at one of the country’s most popular universities with recruiting companies. 

      The city’s student population are treated to one of the most diverse and cosmopolitan cities in the UK. The well known abundance of curry houses are a treat before or after a night out, with the city’s nightlife buzzing way into the dawn hours. 

      As the sun rises, Birmingham wakes up to (or goes to bed on) a city full of culture, art and opportunity, with galleries featuring world famous artists and venues showcasing emerging bands for all tastes and haircuts. 

      As a major commuting hub in Britain, nowhere is too far from Birmingham’s locations in the Midlands, and prospective students will struggle to find a better city for their student experience.
