Great university experience, if only it lasted longer. Never stuck for something to do. Great nights out 6 days a week. Eating out spoilt for choice, anything you want for any price range won't struggle to find a place. Shopping is completely covered with the bullring. Amazing transport links with trains / uber / buses / canal networks for cycling or walking. Very well priced location to say its the second largest city in England, even living outside of the main city centre the transport links make up for it, meaning you are able to pay less and still enjoy city living. Overall i would say its one of the most exciting cities I have been to with plenty to offer for all.

Good city, loads to do, the bull ring is a great place to do some shopping and broad street is great for clubs. Have a look at some of suburbs of Birmingham and you may even see a more varied landscape

The food is great, the Bullring is extremely close to the New Street station, a lot of cheap places to chill out in. Best place to be in right now

My university is in Birmingham. It has a great location as it right next to a shopping centre and a massive train station. It’s in the heart of the city which I love and always feel like I have something to do

Living in Selly Oak is ideal, if has all of the necessary shops required for student life, as well as pubs and only being 10 minutes from uni.

Nothing to add, food is good, not much value for money, unsafe city, all in all not a bad experience.

Birmingham has EVERYTHING but is also the best location for travelling to other cities as it is so central- a great place for home friends to visit!

Birmingham is the UK's second city, and you can really see this in how large and thriving its centre is. There is a good public transport system, great mix of bars, clubs, restaurants and entertainment across town, so whatever you're into, there'll be something for you. The Bull Ring shopping centre as well as New Street are massive hubs for shopping, eating and other entertainment.

Personally feel that Birmingham is second only to London for overall city life. There is so much to do, being the 2nd city you would expect so! The nightlife is obviously great, everywhere is so well connected with trains in particular a great mode of transport I feel. And the bullring is at the heart of the city, providing countless shops, restaurants and bars, there truly is something for everyone.

Birmingham has a lot to offer but many of the things are not very well known or easy to discover so there's a lot of hidden gems known to the locals but for the tourist, it may be harder to find Birmingham as interesting as London
