Birmingham is a lively bustling city with a lot of culture and entertainment. All of the businesses you could need are present in the city and it's only expanding. There is a lot to do and there are a seemingly endless amount of night clubs.

An affordable city…

Birmingham is an affordable city to live in. You can cut finances down with student ID in many high street retail shops and for food. I walked everywhere so did not spend anything on transport.

Public Transport

The city is easy to get around by foot and bike; it has lots of walking routes and they are working on a new cycle highway. There are train stations dotted around Birmingham so it would be worth investing in a student railcard. The city has recently introduced a tram system, West Midlands Metro, which has made getting around even easier.

Birmingham is situated in the heart of England and consequently has fantastic connections to the rest of the country and Europe, whether it be by rail, road or air. London is around 90 minutes away by train and the international airport is just 10 minutes from the city centre.

Eating Out

Shopping

The city offers one of the best shopping experiences in the UK. The iconic Bullring and Grand Central shopping centres are brimming with high street brands and a four-storey Selfridges. If you are looking for independent boutiques and vintage shops, go to Digbeth which is a few roads down from the city centre, or head out a little further to suburbs Selly Oak and Kings Heath and you’ll come across some unique finds.

Cultural Guide

Museums and Galleries

There are so many brilliant museums and galleries to visit. Some of the favourites are Ikon Gallery for modern art, Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, Thinktank Science Museum and Sareholl Mill which is a must if you are a Tolkien fan, as the mill and surrounding area were a source of inspiration for The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings.

Festivals

Birmingham hosts a variety of festivals all year round. Top picks include Made Festival, UK dance and urban music, Birmingham Weekender, the city’s free arts festival and Flatpack Festival, which features fantastic films, live performances, installations and parties that pop up across Birmingham over a week.

 

Image Credit

Theatres and Cinemas

The Hippodrome is the UK's most popular single auditorium theatre. It has regular performances from Birmingham’s Royal Ballet, as well as musicals, opera, drama and comedy throughout the year. Birmingham is also home to the UK’s oldest working cinema, The Electric Cinema, showing everything from blockbusters to cult and indie films.

Sport

Birmingham is a great city to catch some live sport; it's home to the world-famous Edgbaston Cricket Ground plus three football clubs: Aston Villa, Birmingham City and West Bromwich Albion. In 2022, the city is hosting the Commonwealth Games so there will be exciting stadium upgrades and new sporting venues.

Birmingham is such a small city that everything from the University of Birmingham is within a one or two-hour walk. There are also numerous public transportation buses that can take you anywhere in Birmingham. The university has its own train station called "University station" from which you can travel not only to Birmingham but also to anywhere in the United Kingdom. For example, London is only one and a half hours away by train from the University station. read more

Living close to UoB in Birmingham is a very nice experience (though some areas, especially in Selly Oak, seem a little dodgy). Everyone lives close to campus and therefore it is easy to meet people at the local bars and pubs everyone goes to. Some of the most popular clubs are also all located on the same street (Broad Street). It is a little pricey, as most big cities are, but nowhere near as pricey as some other UK places like London. Public transport, especially buses, are quite unreliable, so a car can vastly improve quality of life here read more

This is the country's Second City so you're not likely to find many places with better shopping experiences or nights out. Broad Street is the city's club capital, but it's not the only place available. Buses are pretty reliable but the tram service is still in its (relatively) early days and therefore has some growing pains. read more

Cost of living in student accommodation is quite high. Makes it difficult for students who don’t receive enough loan to cover their rent. However, costs of everything else e.g. food is relatively normal. The city centre is about a 7 minute walk from Aston so it’s really easy to get to and there’s so many options to shop/eat. I haven’t personally used public transport yet just as I am unsure how it differs to where I’m from. But I do believe the city itself is very underrated. read more

Selly Oak does not make me feel safe. I've had guys in balaclavas come up to me, occasionally you'll see posts about people walking down high street with a machete. I've sadly had a pizza nicked on the way home. I've seen posts about at least 2 or 3 cars being burnt down in selly. Muggings also appear common however this may just be cause everyone at the university is on a page together so you simply see it more. However if you like cheap chicken shops and Asian food it's got a good selection and you'll be close to the students union for nights out. read more

Birmingham is not my favourite city and being here only confirmed that. The Gay Village is absolutely brilliant, and there is the Bullring shopping centre right next to Aston Uni campus.

Multicultural, interesting city with lots of shopping close to the centre. Lots of places to eat out, although in the centre mostly chains with more independent places in other areas such as digbeth and suburbs. Broad street offers lots of clubs, there are also comedy clubs, karaoke, big concerts at the arenas around Birmingham and more independent clubs such as rainbow in digbeth. read more

Birmingham is an affordable city to live in. You can cut finances down with student ID in many high street retail shops and for food. I walked everywhere so did not spend anything on transport. read more

Birmingham is a great student city as there's so much to do! There are so many places to eat out, because you have such a variety of both restaurants, cafés and fast food places in town, in the bullring, Brindley place, the mail box, and so many more! And if you love curry then the balti triangle is there for you! The nightlife is amazing as you have well over 20 different nights out- they range from super club gatecrasher nights (which has a room for everyone's taste) to rainbow and Ouse which are great for house lovers, and then places like jam house, for a more chilled out jazzy night! There are also so many pubs and bars if you just fancy a pint or a couple cocktails! The shopping is amazing as the bullring has a large variety of both high street and designers stores, and at Christmas town is lit up by the German market which is the best way to get into the Christmas spirit! Transport is brilliant as you can get everywhere by train and it's cheap read more

Crime is rather high in Birmingham which is always a worry to students. However, the nightlife is great and provides something for all people, even with unusual music tastes. The trains and buses are so frequent that Birmingham is easy to get around. read more

Great city with a lot of culture. There is currently a redevelopment of the city taking place making it a much more modern and exciting city. The bullring makes it brilliant for shopping, and there's a lot of really good places to eat. Overall a very great city to live in and cheap as well. read more
