' I hope Birmingham has many more students from India. It’s an absolute joy to study here.'

Like all beginnings, I was a little nervous about the whole move to Birmingham. However, the multicultural international environment at the University, combined with its history and hospitality made the entire experience a pleasure. The first year consisted of a lot of exploring and fun at Birmingham.

Given that the University ranks in the top 1% of the University’s on the planet, there is absolutely no doubt about the impact of the degree I hope to obtain. I have definitely grown as a professional at various levels and hopefully this will help me go places in the future.

University of Birmingham is by far one of the best campus Universities I have been to. The entire setup with its historical redbrick buildings to the modern ones alongside lush green lawns gives the entire place an excellent feel ideal for studying and research. Also the University centre with its shops, pub and the frequently occurring farmers market with the accessibility to a train station on campus that can get you into the city in a few minutes makes it even better. The campus is one of the best features of University.

Living at Birmingham has been a lot of fun. There were no problems at all with regards to settling in as an international student. Through the course I made a lot of friends in the department and across the University and has been a great experience getting to meet and know people from various international backgrounds.
