7.2 / 10 Overall Satisfaction

In a few words
"The location of the university is actually quite accessible. It's really close to all three city centre stations (Moor Street, New Street and Snow Hill) and the city centre is definitely a key area for students as there are many things to do ranging from the vast array of restaurants to the vibrant nightlife. The university itself has no accommodation as the on-campus accommodation is externally owned, however the range of affordable and convenient student accommodation is plentiful and there is another currently being built. There are a lot of things to do during the day from shopping to visiting the library to visiting the museum and gallery. There are SeaWorld and Cadbury World to visit if you venture out a little further as well."
