The University of Birmingham has a thriving population of Singaporean students following a range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses. We have a long history of welcoming Singapoean students to study at Birmingham Law School, and we are one of the few universities in the UK approved by the Ministry of Law. We currently have around 100 Singaporean students studying at Birmingham Law School.

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

Birmingham Law School visits Singapore each year to speak to prospective students. In 2017, we will be visiting in January and details of the trip will be available here once confirmed.

Birmingham Law School is highly reputable and has a very strong alumni network in Singapore and is known for the quality of education it delivers. Birmingham is also one of a small list of universities in the UK which Singapore recognises and enables me to practice at home after graduation." (Wei Yi Lu, LLB)

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 Singaporean Student Society at the University and you are welcome to join them on facebook. The page has been created by current students and it is a great way to meet other Singaporean students at the university.
