Open Days - See for yourself

There's so much going on in Birmingham – from the buzzy street markets to the unmissable transformation of the whole city and our campus. Study here and you'll be at the heart of it all. You too could be taught by our trailblazing academics and study in our innovative £340m facilities. When possible, the best way to explore what's on offer is to come and see us in person. 


Join us on campus at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire on Thursday 20 January 2022 for an insight into life as a Conservatoire student. You'll be able to hear more about our courses and meet our staff and students, as well as touring our facilities.
