Birmingham City University

Birmingham | West Midlands

Diverse local nightlife City

Ucas code: B25

Birmingham City University is dedicated to transforming the prospects of its learners, inspiring them to become makers and doers. It is an integral part of the city in which it is based, with courses shaped by the needs of industry and partnerships with some of the country's leading employers. Our commitment to developing graduates with the skills and experience employers need means that 97 per cent of our students are in employment or further study within six months of graduating (Destination of Leavers from HE survey 2016/17) – which places us in the top ten multi-disciplinary institutions in the UK. The University focuses on practice-led, knowledge-based learning, providing you with access to cutting-edge facilities and real-world experience. The University enjoys around 50 professional accreditations and has a well-established reputation for delivering in-company training and development programmes. We have undertaken a £260 million investment programme in our estates and facilities including the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire building which opened in 2017.
