Birmingham is the largest city in the West Midlands region and has the second-largest urban population in the country after London. Historically, it played a crucial role in England’s Industrial Revolution. Situated in the middle of the country, Birmingham’s abundant natural resources of coal and iron ore have made it a significant center for manufacturing and trade.  

During the 18th and 19th centuries, Birmingham emerged as a prominent center for metal production, earning the nickname ‘City of a Thousand Trades.’ The city’s expertise extended to the manufacturing of various items, including jewelry, buttons, belt buckles, steam engines, and firearms. 

Nowadays, Birmingham has transformed into a modern city experiencing international economic growth. It plays a crucial role in various sectors, including financial services, professional services, and creative industries. Additionally, the city is home to world-class universities.
