Trips and Visits

Birmingham City University's location fosters strong connections with major UK cities, allowing our business students to network with industry leaders through trips and visits across the country. These visits, including places like Blists Hill and the Black Country Museum, provide students with course-specific learning, a rich cultural experience, and valuable insights into UK history.

Mother is a creative agency founded in London in 1996. They are independent and passionate about creating great work. They welcome anyone who shares the same passion and our students got an inside glimpse of this.


JCB, a British manufacturer established in 1945, stands out for its iconic yellow construction equipment and vast product range, encompassing machinery for building, farming, and more. Our students went to visit and got a firsthand look at the innovative machines that JCB is famous for.

Spanning 26 acres, it meticulously recreates the shops, houses, and industrial areas of one of Britain's first industrial landscapes, offering an immersive journey into the region's rich history during the Industrial Revolution.
