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.

Many nationality groups form student societies during their time at the University of Birmingham and we have a lively Nigerian Society called the Nigerian Students' Society (NISS). 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 at www.guildofstudents.com.
What our students have to say...
Munachiso Andrea Uchegbu, MSc Public and Environmental Health Sciences, 2010/11
"The University of Birmingham has always been my dream University. I looked for not just an institution that offered the course which I wanted but also had a reputation for indisputable excellence and intellectual development of students and the university of Birmingham fit into that description.
To a large extent, I can say that I have enjoyed my time both within and without the campus. Birmingham generally is characterised by so much fun and big beautiful buildings which I have taken some time out to notice. Most importantly, there is a system of government that is effectual and effective in dispensing their duties as well as a sense of equality among people unlike in most developing countries of the world. I have taken out time to explore the campus as a whole as well as the city centre and still hope to visit other places of interest."
