About Us

Situated in the heart of England, Birmingham Conservatoire is a place where talent develops, individual creativity flourishes and successful careers begin – all against the backdrop of one of the UK’s greatest modern cities

Our history

Our history as the conservatoire of the Midlands stretches back nearly 150 years, to our early development as the music department of the historic Birmingham and Midland Institute. Today we are a thriving international conservatoire with over 500 students on undergraduate, postgraduate and research programmes, as well as a Junior department of over 200 students.

Professional development

So that we can offer you the very best professional training, we ensure the continuous development and improvement or our programmes by constantly assessing and responding to the demands of the profession. In return, we expect you to work hard, enjoy yourself and take advantage of all we have to offer.

Birmingham City University

In addition to being an international conservatoire, since 1970 we have also been part of one of Britain’s most proactive universities, Birmingham City University (formerly University of Central England in Birmingham), giving our students access to a range of benefits and opportunities few other music colleges can provide.
