Here are our top 10 reasons to choose Birmingham City University.
To welcome all new home and EU undergraduate degree students starting in 2017 or 2018, we're giving away at least £150 worth of credit to spend in a host of ways, on books and a range of learning materials. Even better, it doesn't have to be repaid.
Many of our courses have internationally recognised accreditations, such as the ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants), CIMA (Chartered Institute of Management Accountants) and RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects).
Study with us and you'll be located at the heart of the dynamic city of Birmingham - with all the social and employment possibilities that brings.
We offer career support and advice throughout your time with us and for up to five years after you graduate. Our Graduate+ scheme embeds career-related skills into every one of our degree courses, from becoming a course rep to studying abroad.
From the UK’s leading criminologist to a ‘Hot 100’ jeweller, our teaching staff come from and maintain links with industry, and are some of the leading figures in their fields.
Almost 90 per cent of our research was judged to have delivered ‘outstanding’ or ‘very considerable’ external impact (Research Excellence Framework 2014).
We have transformed our curriculum with a new range of contemporary, flexible courses with practice-based learning and international opportunities built into every stage.
Our student employment agency, OpportUNIty – Student Jobs on Campus, allows you to apply for paid roles at the University, gaining experience in crucial aspects of job applications and valuable feedback on your work.
We're investing £260 million in industry-standard, state-of-the-art facilities to ensure you have the best possible environment for practice-based learning.
Our commitment to developing graduates with the skills and experience employers need means that 94 per cent of our graduates are in employment or further study within six months (Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education survey 2014/15).
There's lots of reasons why our students applied through Clearing. Here's just a few of their stories:
Rhiannon was heartbroken when she found out she hadn't got a place at her first choice university, but knows now that wasn't the end of the world. She is studying for a BA (Hons) English and Creative Writing.
Simon Glazin came to Birmingham City University originally studying Sociology, only to realise he’d rather be doing English. For him, changing course paid off, as he’s now an award-winning fashion journalist.
Some students choose Clearing due to a boring job. Hannah Patterson was working in a bank and realised that it wasn’t the career she really wanted, so made a last-minute decision to study Media and Communication. Hannah now works as a presenter and voiceover artist.
