Student life at Birmingham

There is a thriving student community at Birmingham and we very much look forward to you being part of it.

To hear what student life is like for our students, have a look at what our students say. Also, if you are unable to travel to campus yourself, visit our You Tube Channel to watch films of our beautiful campus.

Student societies

Many nationality groups form student societies during their time at the University of Birmingham. This is an excellent way to keep in contact with home and also provides an opportunity to highlight your culture and customs in the UK.

Student societies are also a useful point of contact for prospective students to Birmingham who may want to contact current students for information.

For a full list of student societies please visit the Birmingham Guild of Students website.

Rashad Hassan Shekhany, PhD in Electronic and Electrical Engineering "If I had to describe myself in a few words I would say a helper person and a hard worker. I chose the University of Birmingham because of the subject offered. I live in private accommodation off campus. The best thing I like about the City of Birmingham is the number of different nationalities in the city."
