The university has a really good system for employing students in jobs on campus as much as they can, even if you don't succeed in getting a job within the university there are plenty of part time jobs in Birmingham City Centre. The university has several of it's own cafes and bars on campus where you can buy decent quality and reasonably priced food. On top of that right outside the Perry Barr campus there is a separate pub which always has good deals on food and drink. Transport to and from the centre of Birmingham is usually quite cheap, 2 for a single bus ticket and 2.10 for a single train ticket. Taxi prices can vary depending on which taxi firm you use I've been charged between 6 and 12 from the accommodation to new street.×

They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
