I am currently a third year at the University of Birmingham. The time spent at University so far has been fantastic, and i will break down and review the different aspects of University life at Birmingham.EDUCATION
Birmingham has often had mixed reviews but from a student point of view it is a very good city to live in. There is fantastic shopping in the city center and many parks and leisure activities around the main campus. The nightlife is fantastic with the famous Broad Street offering many clubs and pubs. There are also many bars in the Student area of Selly Oak.
The University has a firm grasp on the idea of what a student is. There is leniancy towards first years in terms of work as the University is well aware that a first year University student has much more than just a degree on their mind. There are also fantastic support networks for those students who are finding it hard to settle away from home and helps them get through the potentially difficult time.
The University of Birmingham is a very impressive University steeped in tradition. The term 'red-brick university' even derives from the red bricks of the Aston Webb building at the University of Birmingham. The University and the area of Birmingham are lovely places to be and have a feeling of history about them. You could have the chance to be part of this history and part of the traditions that make the University of Birmingham the establishment it is.
