The University was announced as Entrepreneurial University of the Year at the Times Higher Education awards 2012, and University of the Year at the Times Higher Education awards 2013. It has been praised for its graduate employment scores and many courses offer a ‘sandwich’ option involving a work placement with numerous partner employers.

There is an orientation event, which is an informal meeting where new international students can meet in a relaxed environment. It is also an opportunity to ask university support staff any questions which may have arisen during enrolment.

"Last year, I reached out to SI-UK, Jaipur for my Master’s journey, and it has been an incredibly fulfilling and successful experience. From guiding me through the application process to assisting with letters of recommendation and statement of purpose, and even following up with universities, SI-UK provided comprehensive support at every step of the journey. They went the extra mile, assisting with admissions, fee processing, accommodation arrangements, visa guidance, and coordination on medical checkups. I firmly believe that my admission to the University of Birmingham wouldn't have been possible without SI-UK. I highly recommend SI-UK to anyone seeking admission to a UK or Ireland university."
