Welcome to the University of Birmingham! Whether you're joining us for the first time or returning on a postgraduate course, we're here to help you get ready and organised.
Welcome is a good opportunity to settle in, make new friends, discover Birmingham (aka Brum), and to feel prepared for your studies. As teaching gets started, we'll continue to update these pages with lots of useful information, resources, and handy tips from our current students.
Keep checking your student email inbox regularly for news and updates. The student intranet also has lots of useful information as teaching gets underway. Remember, the Welcome Checklist is also worth printing or downloading to make sure you don't miss out actioning anything important.
Don't forget to follow our socials (@unibirmingham) or subscribe to our UoB Student Services YouTube channel to hear more from our Student Content Shapers and get a feel for student life here at UoB.
