Birmingham is the UK’s second largest city, with a population of over 65,000 students. With hundreds of bars, restaurants and excellent shopping facilities, it has plenty to offer Turkish students.

Our graduates have gone on to hold senior positions in global companies, create Oscar and MOBO-nominated entertainment, and design for royalty and 10 Downing Street – home to the UK’s Prime Minister.

Our ambition is for you to enjoy valuable work-experience while you learn, and have the opportunity to be employed in student jobs on campus.
