University College Birmingham


Creating ‘work-ready’ graduates, we are renowned for our industry focused degrees that combine academic theory with practical skills and powerful placements that prepare you for the real life of work. If this sounds appealing, we have a whole spectrum of excellent degrees that will suit you down to the ground.

There’s no doubt that, today, a degree is a significant financial investment, and over the past five years, we have spent in excess of £130 million on cutting-edge facilities to give you the very best student experience. We’d welcome the chance to show you around.

Supporting students is paramount at University College Birmingham. Our doors are always open, whether you are looking for guidance on writing dissertations, help with job interviews or need support from our health and wellbeing team. You are never just a number.

Not only are we Europe’s leading specialist in management courses for the culinary arts, hospitality and tourism, our students also go on to forge global careers in sport, the creative services, business, finance, education, healthcare and community.

Crucially, we are a welcoming university with strong industry links related to the sectors we represent to give your degree even more impact when you graduate. We make sure our students get the very best, real-life working experience during their studies, making them ‘career-ready' for a range of rapidly expanding sectors.

We are also recognised by government and employer bodies as a centre of vocational excellence, so you know you will be trained to a gold standard.

In size, we are a smaller-than-average university, which means we can give you a more individual teaching experience with enhanced support. Another huge attraction is that many of our degrees are accredited by the University of Birmingham, one of the world’s top-ranked universities.

Studying at University College Birmingham means being right at the heart of one of the most dynamic cities in the UK.

Less than an hour-and-a-half from London with major rail and bus stations just minutes from our campuses, Birmingham is a buzzing city where nearly 40% of the population is under the age of 25.

A rapidly growing business centre with outstanding connections throughout the country, there is no shortage of nightlife, restaurants, bars and coffee shops, cultural attractions, parks and entertainment right on your doorstep. For everything a student wants, there’s no place better than ‘Brum’.

We have invested £130 million into our four campuses, which are just a 10-minute walk from the heart of Birmingham city centre and a stone’s throw from one another in the vibrant Jewellery Quarter.

The practical facilities across our campuses –all developed with real industry in mind – are fast-growing, while we have also invested £6.1 million into fresh-thinking learning support spaces, giving you the very best environment to expand your mind. And in the summer, you can always take your books down to nearby Cathedral Square and St Paul's Square, just two of the city centre’s glorious green spaces.

Sustainable and easy to navigate, each campus has its own distinct character and has been designed specifically to enhance the student experience. We are also right in the centre of the city’s business and hotel district, opening up no end of placement and work opportunities.

What is it like to live in our halls of residence, The Maltings and Cambrian Hall?

It puts the best of both worlds on your doorstep. You’ll be part of a friendly campus surrounded by supermarkets, banks, cafés, student budget restaurants and rail and coach stations, and living in one of Britain’s most exciting and diverse cities.

You’ll want to feel at home and our accommodation team within Student Services will make this all a bit easier, our aim being to provide you with a high-quality, safe, affordable and happy environment for both your academic and social life.
