Thinking of applying to Birmingham and as a minority group I was looking into the population of black people at the university. This isn’t because of any type of prejudiced and I by no means want to offend anyone but as most people would agree on it’s not always a nice feeling to be the only Asian or black or whatever ethnicity in your entire class. Could anyone give some insight on how diverse the University of Birmingham is? (Birmingham city uni) Thanks x

It's very ethnically diverse - the uni and the city, almost as much as London

tl:dr better than a lot of unis, not as diverse as the city of Birmingham as a whole

Yeah I know man that’s one of my hesitations about firming uob, when I went there for an open day I noticed the uni was no where as ethically diverse as the city, instead of somewhere like Aston which was much more. I looked at there stats too it didn’t make great reading but I’m not sure looking for actual current student to shed some incite

Birmingham open day looked diverse? That's why it's my first choice, at the least it's more diverse than Warwick

When I went for the open day, it seemed quite diverse to me. I know they also have quite a big ACS if that helps. It obviously won’t be as diverse as Aston or BCU as its a Russell group uni, but it’s deffo one of the most diverse Russell group unis, probably the most diverse in fact. I am also about to apply for Birmingham and Warwick and I was scared it wouldn’t be diverse, but ive look at societies and stuff and they seem decent enough.

I'm at UoB and only ever seem to be with Chinese folk for group work... Don't mind - but I'm extremely shy - and it would be nice to meet people with a similarish background to me

Hey I currently study chemical engineering at UoB.

I'd say as unis go Birmingham is pretty diverse, I have a range of friends from lot of different places and cultures. We have student run groups for all sorts of different ethnicites/cultutres from afro carribean to the Philipines. You can check them out here:

https://www.guildofstudents.com/studentgroups/

The diversity of people you work with will of course depend on the course you study as some courses are more diverse than others.

The city of Birmingham as a whole is incredibly diverse as it's the second biggest city in the UK.

Thanks

Harry
