£150 free credit for books and other learning materials

To welcome all new EU undergraduate degree students starting in 2018 or 2019, we're giving away at least £150 worth of credit to spend in a host of ways, on books and a range of learning materials. Even better, it doesn't have to be repaid.

There is a supportive and growing Polish community in Birmingham, and Polish students will feel very welcome in our city.

Polish food shops are common in Birmingham, as well as restaurants and bars. You’ll also experience a warm heritage in our city, with a mixture of historical architecture and brand new buildings.

Birmingham Airport has direct flights to and from Bydgoszcz.
