Birmingham, which is England's second biggest city, is a very popular destination with expatriates, especially with international students. It indeed hosts the country's most important higher education institution.

As a dynamic city, Birmingham also provides many opportunities to expatriates, particularly in the services sector, although it is known for a higher cost of living than other British cities.

 Part of Merseyside, in the Northwest of England, Liverpool is a popular destination for expatriates from around the world. The city built up its economy and reputation through the industry, with its large port once being one of the busiest ports in the world. However, like many northern cities, Liverpool faced an economic and industrial decline in the late 20th century.  

A diverse northern city, Leeds is an epicentre of culture and economy and has a wide range of industries spanning across many sectors. The city is part of the Yorkshire region and is considered a major city both in the north and in the UK in general.  

Bristol is an attractive city for expats thanks to its mild weather, its beauty, river-side living, the wide range of tourist attractions, and a stable labour market. Although Bristol is more expensive than most UK cities, it is a lot cheaper to live in than London.

Brighton is a popular destination for expats, and it's not hard to understand why. The city is famous for its shops, art scene and festivals, not to mention its vibrant and alternative culture. Also, Brighton is less than one hour away from London by train, which makes it a good choice to live and work in.

Located in the West Midlands, Birmingham is a centre for commerce and is popular with expatriates who are likely to be hired in a variety of different sectors in this major city. Although Manchester is England's second city, Birmingham is the largest and most densely populated city outside of London, with just over one million inhabitants. Birmingham has a dynamic labour market, providing several job opportunities for expatriates.

I'm Olivia, a Polish, big city girl who is willing to take the risk and work and prepare towards a move far away from home. I have decided to create a little, comfortable home and a future, step by step in the UK with and for him (and myself). This is a blog with a lot of sharing random thoughts, doubts, experiences from my UK visits and any funny thing I find valuable to write about :) Twitter: @Olivia_Olivka
