Students from India at Birmingham

The University of Birmingham warmly welcomes students from India! We welcomed the first students from India to our beautiful Edgbaston Campus in 1909 and since then we have provided education for more than 1000 Indian alumni. There are currently over 130 Indian students studying a range of programmes with us.


Many nationality groups form student societies during their time with us, and the Guild of Students is home to Bharat Parivar, which was set up to provide advice and guidance to new students as well as offering a place to meet other students from India. The group organises events throughout the year and has close links with the Indian Consulate in Birmingham, as well as other societies such as Tamil People and Telugu People in the UK.
