Very picturesque campus, a lot of the buildings have intersting architecture which makes you feel like you are learning in a well established environment. The students union is very well organized as the societies actually run regular events. The drama societies in particular are successful as they have to pitch the play they are proposing to the commitee and then they best one gets the go ahead to produce it.
Birmingham is a great university for careers options, and for good quality teaching on a wide range of courses. It has everything to offer as a campus university, and is in a great city with lots to do and lots of opportunities.
