If you've haven’t yet been invited to attend one of our Applicant Taster Days and you have been offered a place to study at Birmingham City University, please let us know.

Applicant Taster Days are designed to give you a flavour of what studying at Birmingham City University is really like. During the day you will be able to find out more about your course as well as meet with tutors and students.

You will also get the opportunity to view Birmingham School of Architecture and Design’s facilities in more detail. This experience should not only help you get to know us better and vice versa, but also help you to make an informed decision about whether you wish to study with us.

Applicant Taster Day dates

  • Wednesday 7 February (all courses)
  • Wednesday 28 February (all courses)
  • Saturday 10 March (all courses)
  • Wednesday 21 March (all courses excluding Landscape Architecture)


Already visited an Open Day?

We think you’ll still find it useful to come to an Applicant Taster Day because it’s your chance to hear from staff and students in more depth as well as work on a project brief to experience what it’s like to be a student of Architecture or Design at Birmingham City University.

If you have any queries about the Applicant Taster Day or your application, please email Please include your user name.
