Living in Birmingham

Life in the UK

Taking the decision to study in the UK opens the door to superb learning opportunities and experiences that will enrich your personal and professional development.

So if you want to study abroad, why should you choose University College Birmingham?

First, we understand the commitment it takes to travel from India and set up home in a foreign country thousands of miles away. For this reason, we do everything to make sure your transition to the UK lifestyle is as easy as possible. Our expert teams will be here to support you during the application process and throughout your studies.

Whether you need help with course details and modules, have questions about finance and accommodation, or want insights into life in the UK from a cultural perspective, we are here to help. We appreciate there are lots of universities in the UK, so we work hard to make sure your university experience with us is as rewarding as possible.

We appreciate that some students do not have the required English language qualifications for their course but we offer a range of sessions to make sure your language skills meet the conditions of your offer. We also run a full induction and orientation programme for Indian students in which you will find out everything you need to know about part-time work opportunities and voluntary work, medical registration and visa issues.

Life in the UK offers great opportunities to further your understanding of international culture and business practices. And it is hard to think of a better place than Birmingham to be an international student.
