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. Also, you will engage in activities that you give you a real taste of what it’s like to be a School of English student at Birmingham City University.

You will also get the opportunity to view the City Centre Campus where the School of English has been located, in the brand new facilities of the Curzon Building, since September 2015. 

This experience should not only help you get to know us better but also help you to make an informed decision about whether you wish to study with us.

Get £150 free credit for books and other learning materials

The University is offering new Home and EU students enrolling in the 2018/19 academic year £150 credit to spend, giving you the best possible start to life at BCU.

What to bring

While not essential, you might want to bring along a notepad and pen – the absolute essentials for studying English!
