Saudi Arabia

The University of Birmingham has a thriving population of over 40 Saudi Arabian students following a range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses. The Law School receives a large number of applications from Saudi Arabia each year and we look forward to increasing the numbers on our programmes in the future.

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

It is extremely beneficial to be trained at a UK university when looking for jobs as employers do rate the qualifications. (Ogoke Wilson Emeka, LLM, 2009-10)

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.
