India

The University of Birmingham has a thriving population of more than 140 Indian students following a range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses. We currently have three Indian LLM students and five LLB students studying in the Law School and look forward to building on these numbers in future years.

The UK is the home of Common Law and traditional universities such as Birmingham carry a powerful international reputation leading to enhanced job prospects.

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.

We have an active Indian Society at the University and you are welcome to visit their Facebook page. The page has been created by current students and it is a great way to meet other Indian students at the university.
