What our students say...

“During my time at the Conservatoire, I received a high standard tuition from both academic and performance areas. Apart from the weekly performance and master classes, Conservatoire provided a lot of opportunities for me to get involved in competitions and public performance events. On the academic side, there were various theoretical and practical seminars and lectures. Tutors and staff were friendly to international students and very helpful in helping us to understand our courses and assessments. Birmingham Conservatoire is located in the centre of the city, which allows you to connect to a lot of great resources, both musically and professionally.”

MA Fashion Design

“One of the best things about BCU is that there are perfect facilities for me to process my creative ideas. We have different kinds of embroidery machines, looms, photo shooting studios, a laser-cut workshop and even a 3D printer. I also got a great internship experience at a global design company in London and which was arranged by the career team at the university.”
