About University: Large, prestigious and rather grand - you wouldn't expect anything less from Birmingham's university. Established in 1900, it was the first "redbrick" university to receive its royal charter. Striking examples of Victorian architecture remain on the large, leafy campus in Edgbaston, which also comes equipped with all mod cons: bars, cafes, shops, a hair salon, a concert hall, banks, an art gallery, a medical practice, a nursery - even its own train station (only one stop to the city centre). It also has one of the largest student unions in the country, as well as excellent employment figures.
