The staff and students at the School of Computer Science were really welcoming and fun which made me certain I’d have no problem making friends once I started. For my Year in Industry I joined IBM in their Hursley labs for 12 months. The University has many resources which helped me secure this placement.

I have enjoyed exploring different areas of Computer Science through the modules on my course. Outside of this, I have been an active member of student-led societies and sports clubs. The student support from the University has been excellent. This is something that has been particularly important during COVID-19.

Being at Birmingham gives you the advantages of both a campus university and a city university. Although the campus is in Edgbaston, I feel so connected to the city because it is only a 10-minute train ride away. From Grand Central, it is incredibly easy to travel anywhere in the rest of the country which is what makes Birmingham feel so connected.

When I first arrived in Birmingham, I felt so satisfied because that was where I knew I wanted to be. I never felt homesick for one moment, or terrified of what was going to be. I did feel insecure regarding the curriculum, as I had never done any coding before

Geographically, Birmingham is ideally placed in the centre of England’s population and naturally has great infrastructure. Day/weekend trips to most of the major cities in Wales or England are easily possible and affordable.
