Live in Edgbaston and take your pick from several bus routes to get to classes at University of Birmingham main campus or The Vale. You should be able to get to campus in around 45 minutes by bus or you can cycle in 20 minutes or drive in around 10-to-15 minutes. The city centre is half an hour away by bus, or 15 minutes by car when you want to indulge in a little retail therapy or try out the city’s diverse restaurants and bars. When you have a day off, be sure to take trips to the capital or big cities like Manchester. You can catch a train to either and be exploring in just over two hours.
Close to home you’ll find grocery stores and fast food restaurants, perfect for picking up a quick supper on your way home from class. Live in a fun-filled share house with six or seven bedrooms and hang out with housemates in the games room playing pool or table football. Watch TV in the evening in the lounge or plan to share the cooking in the large fully equipped kitchen. On sunny days you can take a picnic blanket out to the landscaped shared garden and read through your notes or catch some sun.
Opt for an ensuite bathroom off your double bedroom, self-contained studio or share two bathrooms in your house. You’ll always be able to study in comfort with double glazing and central heating and don’t give your safety a thought as all properties have security alarms and some have CCTV. Move in and start studying right away with a desk and plenty of space to store your books and belongings.
