About us

Based in the heart of the UK’s second biggest city, with over 10,000 students from around 90 countries, University College Birmingham is highly respected by employers and industry for providing career-focused education and training.

We specialise in vocational courses in both the higher education and further education sectors and continue to grow our portfolio of apprenticeships.

A wide range of our undergraduate and postgraduate degree courses, as well as some higher-level apprenticeships, are accredited and awarded by the University of Warwick, a prestigious Russell Group university ranked 9th in the UK by The Guardian 2024 league table. Our reputation for excellence means the University is popular with international students and this year we were delighted to win the International category at the Whatuni Student Choice Awards 2023.

We are committed to providing the best facilities for all our students and have invested £160 million in our campuses to enhance the student experience and ensure students have the very best, practical environments for their training.
