University of Birmingham
7.8 / 10 Overall Satisfaction
(based on 118 ratings in 2018)
In a few words
"University of Birmingham is located in Edgbaston and is only a 10 minute train ride, which makes it very ideal. We have an art museum and a geology museum which are very nice to relax in. In good weather we can go to the Botanical Gardens on campus to relax and picnic."
