Welcome to the University of Birmingham! It’s almost time for you to say ‘Hello Brum’ and we can’t wait to welcome you to our beautiful campus and city, as well as our UoB community.

Whether you're joining us for the first time or returning on a postgraduate course, we've put together lots of useful information and resources to help you get ready for your time here. Our Welcome Timeline is a great place to start.

If you're an international student, we know that travelling overseas to study is a big moment in your life, so we've created an online guide and some useful videos to support you. Get advice on what to do before you travel, how to adjust to life in the UK once you've arrived, and top tips from other international students.

We're currently busy planning a whole host of events and opportunities for our Welcome Week 2022 which will begin on Monday 19 September, with Arrivals Weekend on Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 September. Welcome Week is a good opportunity to settle in quickly, make new friends, discover Birmingham (aka Brum), and to feel prepared for your studies with us so keep checking back for updates!

Make sure you also check your inbox and follow our socials (@unibirmingham) for the latest information, advice and guidance from current students plus lots more.
