As a student, I am sure that you’re always looking for good places to study. Some of us might find it hard to focus at home, so today, I’m going to share some of my go-to places for study.
When talking about places to study, the library is probably the first thing that comes to people’s minds.
• University College Birmingham Library
University College Birmingham’s library is located at The Link, which is just a quick walk from the Summer Row campus. You can find all the books and resources you need for your assignment and exams. It’s a quiet study spot, with carrel desks, computers, printers, everything you need. Really important to mention that if you have any questions regarding your assignment, remember the CASE and subject librarians are here to help!
ThinkSpace is located on the Ground floor of Mclntyre House. It’s a good place to go especially if you are doing group projects or anything that needs discussion, as you don’t need to stay as quiet as you need to in a library. There are also computers and printers as well as laptops to borrow.
• The Library of Birmingham
Finally, the Library of Birmingham. This is one of my favourite places in Birmingham, not only for studying but also for relaxing. The Library of Birmingham is just a short walk from Summer Row. It has an iconic look and it is one of the largest public libraries in the United Kingdom, and the largest regional library in Europe.
Not only is there a lot of study space available, but there is also the Secret Garden, a unique garden terrace on the 7th floor of the library, where you can take a break and have some fresh air when needed. Furthermore, the Shakespeare Memorial Room is another great place to visit, recreated from the original Victorian library.
