University of Birmingham
7.8 / 10 Overall Satisfaction
(based on 118 ratings in 2018)
In a few words
"There's a wide range of pubs and clubs both in the city centre and surrounding student suburbs. However, the quality of clubs in the centre is not outstanding as many local clubs have been taken over by larger chain organisations. Accessing the centre and student suburb are tricky from my accommodation if you rely on taxis. This can make some nights very expensive."
