Can anyone let me know what areas students privately rent in their 2nd/3rd year in Birmingham uni? I.e. crime rates, standard of housing, etc.

Thank you

The vast majority of 2nd and 3rd years live in Selly Oak. You do hear about some break-ins and weirdos walking around, but as long as you are careful, and lock your doors, don't walk alone in the dark or flash expensive stuff around, you don't really have much to worry about. Criminals often target student areas, so this isn't really exclusive to Birmingham. With the housing, you get what you pay for really. There is a really big range with lots of different landlords, so it's work looking around the houses when the time comes. Next year I will be paying £88 a week for a nice 6 bed house, with a really nice kitchen area etc.
