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 £400m facilities. When possible, the best way to explore what's on offer is to come and see us in person. If you're thinking of getting to us by coach, bus or car, then you can get free travel or parking!
