Birmingham is England’s second largest city with a proud history of business innovation, a vibrant cultural scene and a global profile. It is one of the youngest cities in Europe with 40 per cent of the population aged under-25. Perhaps not surprisingly, the city is home to 70,000 students who are drawn to Birmingham’s world-class facilities and a cost of living that is up to 55 per cent below London. UCB is Birmingham’s most centrally located university and its student accommodation is at the heart of the city. It is close to both the bustling central business district – home to trendy bars, cafés and award-winning restaurants – as well as the historic jewellery Quarter, responsible for almost half of the UK’s jewellery production. Music-lovers enjoy an eclectic mix of styles and genres. Birmingham, which has a culturally diverse population of one million, was the birthplace of heavy metal music, spawning super groups such as Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath as well as major pop acts like Duran Duran.
