Why the University of Birmingham?

Making the most of your time at uni will help you become a well-rounded person, with more than just a degree to offer future employers.













Studying at the University of Birmingham can help you become the best you can be.

  • We have an excellent reputation for sports. Not only do our teams compete at a high level in varsity games (where we play against other unis), you can also study the subject at the School of Sport and Exercise Sciences.
  • You can join over 200 clubs and societies, from hand gliding to politics! If arts and music are more your thing, not only do we have two symphony orchestras and a number of choirs, you can visit our art gallery too.
  • The University of Birmingham belongs to an organisation of 24 research-led universities in the UK, including Oxford, Cambridge, Durham and Warwick, called the Russell Group. These universities carry out some of the most highly rated research in the world, so studying at a Russell Group university means you’ll be taught by leading experts at the top of their game.

Our students also say they enjoy their courses more, feel they have more support, and enjoy some of the best facilities, which all means they get the most out of university life.
