What students think

As a Russell Group university, Birmingham is an attractive option for every high performing student with big ambitions. Particularly noteworthy is its art and literature facilities with the Barber Institute of Fine Arts (if you want to see a real life Van Gogh, Picasso and Monet!) and the Shakespeare Institute as two standout examples alongside the incredible Cadbury Research Library - a facility that houses over 200,000 of the rarest historic books and over 4 million manuscripts from across the world. The CRL is open to the public as well as students and academics.
