Checking Out the City

Other than being the second largest city in the UK next to London, Birmingham is also the second most populous city in the UK, again second to London. But this doesn't mean that it's second best!

For instance, in all of the Midlands it is considered as the busiest and most active — as a matter of fact, it is regarded as the commercial, financial, social and cultural center of the Midlands. Due to its bustling economy, it's no wonder why sometimes it is described as the city of 1,001 different trades.

No one can deny that Birmingham, or sometimes affectionately called Brum by its locals, is always alive and kicking. Some of the things that serve as testaments to this include: it welcomes over 41 million visitors a year, it holds more than 50 festivals every year, and it has 5 universities with 80,000 students!

Speaking of which, student accommodation Birmingham is relatively easier on the pocket than that of London's, and this is why budget-conscious students from various parts of the planet can afford to smile from ear to ear.

Living in Birmingham as a Student
