Overview

Overview

Birmingham City University is situated in Birmingham's vibrant and diverse city centre and is the second-largest university in the city. The university has a rich history and multicultural community, providing students with a unique and enriching experience. Spread across two main campuses, it has invested over GBP 340 million into state-of-the-art facilities, including new biomedical science labs, a mock operating theatre, a crime scene room and broadcasting facilities. Birmingham is also one of the greenest cities in Europe, offering botanical gardens and multiple parks for students to relax in.

It is possible to earn while studying through the student employment agency Opportunity, which helps students fit a job around their own study programme and commitments. The institution also has plenty of industry partnerships, making it easy for students to gain work experience and internships.

Students can also study abroad during their time at the university through an exchange programme or with the Erasmus+/ Turing Scheme, helping them stand out from the crowd after graduation while making new friends and gaining a unique experience. The university also offers the chance to take part in a summer programme with partner universities worldwide.

Birmingham City University has a dedicated Career Support team. Students can book in to see Career Consultants for help with all aspects of their career plan and advice on searching for jobs. Further resources are available when it comes to interviewing preparation or writing outstanding CVs. This support is available to students for up to three years after graduating.

There is excellent student support through several services, focusing on everything from financial advice, childcare support and information on visas and immigration to mentoring and counselling.

What's new

What's new

Birmingham City University is constantly looking at ways to improve the student experience. Recent changes include:

The university is investing £340 million in its facilities, including the expansion of the City Centre Campus.

In 2018, the university opened a GBP 41 million extension to its City South Campus. The extension includes specialist laboratories for Sports and Life Sciences students and broader social learning spaces and classrooms that see education students developing as future educators. In 2022, BCU expanded its healthcare facilities to include advanced equipment that recreates hospital environments.

In 2017, the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire music building opened at the City Centre Campus. The centre of the new complex is the 500-seat concert hall, and there are five public performance spaces in total, plus rehearsal and training spaces. It is the first new, purpose-built conservatoire in the UK for over 30 years and includes the only permanent jazz space in any UK conservatoire.

Teaching quality

Teaching quality

Birmingham City University has an excellent reputation for teaching and was awarded silver in the most recent Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) in 2020. The TEF – the first scheme of its kind – recognises excellent teaching and learning across the UK's world-class higher education sector. The government awarded silver grades to universities offering courses with high levels of stretch that ensure all students are significantly challenged and acquire knowledge, skills and understanding that employers highly value.

TEF particularly praised Birmingham City University for its student support, world-class facilities, and teaching staff's professionalism. Currently, nine of its faculty staff are National Teaching Fellows, the most prestigious award there is in university teaching.

''We have worked tirelessly to ensure we provide our students with a practice-led, knowledge-applied education that is interdisciplinary, employer-driven and has a global outlook,'' said Vice-Chancellor Professor Philip Plowden.

Some factors are assessed, including completion rates, student satisfaction and graduate employment. The assessment looks at teaching, the student teaching environment, and the outcomes they achieve, considering both their subject and their background. Overall, student satisfaction is high with 84 percent of students feeling that their course has developed knowledge and skills for the future and over 90 percent agreeing that staff are good at explaining things (National Student Survey 2023).

Department structure

Department structure

There are four faculties at Birmingham City University:

Business, Law and Social Sciences

The faculty offers a wide variety of courses, including vocationally focused, and available on a flexible basis. The faculty also supports lifelong learning and equips students with the skills needed to thrive.

Many of the courses on offer have accreditations from professional bodies, an advantage when students seek jobs and further study after leaving university.

Arts, Design and Media

The faculty has impressive links with the creative industry, including many high-profile brands and companies. Creative Skillset has accredited a number of the faculty's media courses.

It has the only centre in the Midlands approved by the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) to offer their Advanced Certificate and Diploma courses. It runs courses in Hong Kong and Thailand.

Health, Education and Life Sciences

The focus of the faculty is on training for health and education professionals. However, its emphasis on life sciences is growing. It has a good record for graduate outcomes, and students are successful in finding employment after studying the practically minded courses. Experienced practitioners teach the programmes and help guide students into their chosen industries.

Computing, Engineering, and the Built Environment

With close links to industry partners, the Faculty of Computing, Engineering and the Built Environment (CEBE) helps students get involved in the latest research and make real and lasting contributions to their chosen industries.

The faculty also has good international links, allowing students to explore emerging technologies from across the world and offer exchange programmes abroad.

Entry requirements

Entry requirements

The type and level of qualifications students require will vary depending on their chosen course, but there are some guidelines on entry to the university for all international applicants:

Competence in English requirements

International students who are not classified from ‘majority English-speaking' countries, are usually required to take a Secure English Language Test (SELT) such as the IELTS Academic test. However, BCU accepts a wide range of English language qualifications instead of a SELT. The University also offers its own online English proficiency test.

If prospective students are planning to study a course below degree level, they must take a SELT with one of UK Visas and Immigration's (UKVI) approved English language test providers unless UKVI has already accepted their high school qualification.

Pre-sessional courses

If the SELT result is below the required entry standard, students will be eligible to study the university's pre-sessional courses. Students in pre-sessional programmes will learn general English and introductory academic English.

Students will do writing and reading exercises, as well as studying essential grammar rules, comprehension and speaking. All students will carry out a small project too as they learn about British culture and society.

Courses in-country

The university also offers in-country courses to help students improve their English in their home countries before arriving in the UK.

Student safety

Student safety

Birmingham is the UK's second-largest city after London and is home to more than 75,000 students. Like most cities globally, students should take precautions to ensure their safety when travelling and exploring the city.

The university wants students to be safe and happy during their time in the UK and does everything it can to ensure they enjoy the best student experience possible.

The UK Police are friendly and helpful. In the event of an emergency, the police can be contacted by telephone. Students can reach out to the police via their website for non-emergency matters as well.

If relatives or friends are meeting the students on arrival in the UK, they are advised to make sure that all of the arrangements are confirmed before they leave and agree to a contact telephone number in case they are delayed.
