I always cherished the value of a UK degree so I was glad when I got a Chevening Scholarship for postgraduate studies. I knew that University of Birmingham was highly rated at both national and international levels and had the best resources for my chosen course of study.

My first year at the university was quite challenging but there was a lot of help available from the Graduate School, administrators, and lecturers. The friendly atmosphere was critical to my quick adaptation to studying in the UK.

The exposure was great and the UK environment provided just the right amount of challenges. The facilities were outstanding, especially the library, and with students from almost every part of the world, IDD provided the best possible platform for my course of study.

I enjoyed my time in Birmingham. If you desire to study in a truly cosmopolitan city, where you will not feel different and concentrate on getting the best out of your time in the UK, choose Birmingham.

Living in Birmingham provided me with the perfect background I needed for a busy and fun-filled life after studies. Birmingham has a lot to offer to the adventurous and free thinking mind.
