Activity Weeks

University College Birmingham do not provide half term holidays. Given the specialist and highly vocational nature of the subjects we offer, we have scheduled 3 weeks throughout the academic year which have been designed to enhance employability and prepare our students for the world of work. Activities will include; expert speaker from industry who will demonstrate current techniques and showcase some new technology within the industries related to the courses we offer. In addition, some students will also participate in industry related visits to observe best practice and gain information on the wide range of career opportunities available within their chosen area of study.
