Student life

We know your student experience isn’t just about your grades, it’s also about making friends, trying new things and discovering who you are as a person.  You can join a society or sports club through Your Students’ Union which you will automatically become a member of when you study here. There are nearly 100 societies and 40 sports clubs to choose from so there’s something for everyone. You can explore the city and enjoy activities such as shopping, nightlife and local green spaces. 

Our support services help you get the most out of your time at university. You’ll have access to a Student Success Coach who will work with you to create a personal success plan. They are there for you, to help you access the broad range of support we offer, from help with your studies to support with your mental health and wellbeing.

Our Phoenix+ programme offers extra and co-curricular activities to help you build core life skills.

What's it like to live in West Midlands?
Check out our region guide

The West Midlands is made up of Herefordshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Warwickshire, and Worcestershire. Its main cities are Birmingham, Coventry, and Wolverhampton.

It’s the most diverse part of the country behind London, with a proud multicultural history, from the birth of Two-Tone music in Coventry – a combination of Caribbean ska and English punk – to the Balti curry, courtesy of Birmingham’s Pakistani community.

Once the heart of heavy industry and manufacturing, and the inspiration for Peaky Blinders, Birmingham is one of the youngest cities in Europe, with over 40% under 25 years old.
