If you would like to spend a period of time in Birmingham pursuing your research, you will become a member of our Centre for Advanced Research in English (CARE). CARE is based in the Arts Building and the J G Smith Building on our Edgbaston campus in the centre of Birmingham. 

Both our buildings are a one-minute walk from the University Library and the Barber Institute, with its remarkable collection of paintings and sculpture, and other campus facilities. The centre of the city of Birmingham itself is fifteen minutes away by bus or local train (the University has its own railway station).
