Why Choose Us?

Your choice of college or university will play an important part in shaping your career and fulfilling your ambitions.

It’s crucial you pick a place that feels right for you – and where you will be happy. It needs to be a university that will help you achieve your goals; a place you can trust.

So why choose University College Birmingham? Where shall we begin…?

The first thing you need to know is that UCB is a compact, specialist institution in the heart of England’s biggest regional city. Birmingham has the buzz of a major city without the inflated London price tag.

The University is big on vocational courses – the majority of which are accredited by the University of Birmingham – and big on linking academic theory to modern workplace skills. It’s also big on you. Our size and teaching philosophy means the focus is on each individual student. At University College Birmingham, you will never be a face in the crowd.

We offer a unique learning environment with enrolment on college courses and apprenticeships (for post-16 school-leavers), on specialist university degrees (BA and BSc) and postgraduate courses (MA and MSc).

The best way to find out about us is to browse through the course sections and information on this website. Better still, we would love to see you at one of our open days, where you will be made to feel very welcome. Please take a look at our facilities and accommodation, chat to our students and see for yourself why UCB is such a special place to study.
