TRAVEL

Birmingham is at the heart of the UK’s road and rail network and is easily accessible from other parts of the country and beyond. The University’s main campus at Edgbaston, with its magnificent architecture, is a major landmark in Birmingham.

FROM BIRMINGHAM INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT TO THE UNIVERSITY BY TAXI

We would recommend that you try to arrive at Birmingham International Airport. As a guide, the journey from the airport to the Medical School by taxi should take about 30 minutes (depending on traffic) and cost about £20-£30.

FROM BIRMINGHAM INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT TO BIRMINGHAM CITY CENTER BY TRAIN

From the airport terminal building, you can take a free monorail connection to Birmingham International railway station. This operates every two minutes (journey time 90 seconds). Birmingham International railway station has frequent services to Birmingham New Street Station in the city centre (journey time around 15 minutes). From New Street Station it is possible to get a local train to Birmingham University station (second stop from New Street).

FROM LONDON AIRPORTS

If you are arriving at a London airport, there is a frequent train service from London Euston Railway Station to New Street Station. From Heathrow Airport, take the Heathrow Express train to Paddington Station and then the Underground or a taxi to Euston Station. Alternatively, an Airbus runs from Heathrow Airport direct to Euston Station. From Gatwick Airport, take the Airport Express train to Victoria Station and then the Underground or a taxi to Euston Station.

BY RAIL

Most cross-country services to Birmingham arrive at Birmingham New Street Station. Up to six local trains an hour depart for the University, usually from platform 10 or 11 (final destination Longbridge or Redditch) with a journey time of 3 minutes. On leaving the University Station, turn right for the Medical School. Alternatively, there are taxi ranks at New Street Station and throughout the city centre. The journey to the University takes about 10 minutes.
