We asked people from other unis what they thought of Brum students

don’t hate us cause you ain’t us x


We like to think, as UoB students, that we're known for our drinking talent, mad nights out at Fab, academic prowess, and for having a really beautiful clock tower ("Did you know that The University of Birmingham has the world's largest freestanding clocktower?" – you, to all your mates back home every Christmas).

But what do other uni students REALLY think of us? We asked students across the country to tell us what they think we're like.
