Birmingham is a vibrant city that has everything you need, if you go Aston University everything is within walking distance. Ubers are only needed due to bad weather or laziness

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, 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 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

I have enjoyed being at the University of Birmingham. It is a very affordable place to live despite the cost of living which has helped eased some stresses as a student. It has great night life and is very easy to get into town from the student areas. The public transport is not perfect but it very well connected which helps people get to fun places but also get home easily too. read more

Birmingham is so...

Birmingham is so well connected can get a train, tram or bus practically anywhere without having to walk too far which is by far the best thing about it. The amount of nandos concentrated in one area is a bit insane but there is still a lot of choice and variety of restaurants. Lots to do whether it be going for coffee, shopping or clubbing would never find myself bored. The only issue was finding stuff to do with my family when they came as most stuff was aimed at students but they only came every one in a blue moon so it wasn’t that bad. read more

Buses are good for students at £1, however can be unreliable Night life is pretty good and I feel safe at most clubs and bars. Drinks are expensive unless you go on student nights so bear that in mind Going out to eat can be expensive but some really nice restaurants and cafes in digbeth and china town The bullring provides plenty of options for shopping and is convenient next to new street station so everything is in one place in the centre read more

As everyone knows...

As everyone knows the cost of living has increased by a lot, however Birmingham still remains in the fair share, with not having things too high or too low. There are a range of places in Birmingham where you can go eat, from different cuisines to choose from- Asian to chinese to a full hearted English breakfast! You’ll never be disappointed with food! I have a whole list of food places and i’m still a quarter way through my list! Public transport in birmingham usually does get busy during peak times but nevertheless they are all ongoing and mostly in the centre of Birmingham town centre. read more

Birmingham is suc...

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 U...

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
