Student life at Birmingham

There is a thriving student community at Birmingham and we very much look forward to you being part of it.

To hear what student life is like for our students, have a look at what our students say. Also, if you are unable to travel to campus yourself, visit our You Tube Channel to watch films of our beautiful campus. 

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. 

Student societies are also a useful point of contact for prospective students to Birmingham who may want to contact current students for information. There is currently an Arab Society at our Guild of Students.

For a full list of student societies please visit the Birmingham Guild of Students website.

What our students have to say...

Listen to Amna Al-Marri talk about her experiences of studying at Birmingham:  

Amna Al-Marri, Birmingham Foundation Academy "I chose the University of Birmingham becuase it provided me with the opportunity to experience something new and the warm welcome played a great part in this.
The Foundation Academy staff are very special, everyone tries to give students the attention that they need.
I would advise students considering coming to the UK to not be afraid or unsure of coming here because you will definitely enjoy it and will benefit from it. Just go for it!"
