      Nightlife

      The university is situated about 40 minutes drive from Birmingham City which has a vibrant night life with varied entertainment available. Therefore, minibus hire would be the best option for those wanting to sample this. Freshers week includes a tour of Birmingham pubs and clubs where plenty of student discounts are available.

    • Creative scene

      I know there's a choir in the church but that's not my scene so I know very little about it, there's also an art club.

      Nightlife

      See here's the thing Newman university try to avoid telling future students that it's not actually situated in birmingham, it's actually in a place called Bartley green which has very little night life, if students living in halls wanted to go out in birmingham they'd have to catch at least one bus. Quite frankly I wouldn't dream of hanging around bartley green at night.

League table rankings

Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. 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.
