Why choose Birmingham?

My cousin graduated from Birmingham and recommended it to me as it is really friendly with a great reputation and the teaching on the course is excellent. I enjoy being here as it has a laid back atmosphere which you don’t get in more metropolitan places such as London. Birmingham is a very lively city with a good balance between day-time and night-time activities. I love shopping and the restaurants and I’ve found that I’m eating different foods which is a nice change.

When I first arrived I was overwhelmed as it is the first time I have had to be entirely independent. It has been a refreshing experience realising that I can do this and it has given me the confidence to know that I can make it in the real world.

Advice for prospective students

I think it’s important to do proper research before coming to study in the UK so that you have an understanding of the curriculum and any accreditation issues. If you research properly before coming over it makes it much easier to relax and enjoy the experience while you are here.

Studying on the LLB for Graduates course at Birmingham is an opportunity worth taking advantage of as you’ll realise your own potential and get experience of different cultures whilst studying here.
