University of Birmingham and University College Birmingham Partnership
In July 2017, University College Birmingham and the University of Birmingham signed an innovative, new partnership agreement.
This builds on our existing relationship, which has seen the University of Birmingham accredit and award 20,000 University College Birmingham degrees over the past 22 years.
The partnership creates a new model for collaboration, harnessing the distinctive and collective strengths of our two universities, to improve outcomes for young people through a range of joint activities, including:
- Degree apprenticeships - focusing initially on nursing
- Further enhancing student opportunities to access Higher Education through Further Education routes
- Academic teaching staff training and development
- Creating a better Birmingham student experience by sharing facilities
- Helping international students to access educational opportunities in Birmingham
This pioneering partnership will further strengthen the city’s educational excellence and the development of a diverse, highly skilled workforce in the region.

The University of Birmingham accredits and validates a number of degree courses at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. This means that whilst all those courses are delivered by University College Birmingham, graduates receive their awards from the University of Birmingham.
Degree courses accredited by the University of Birmingham:
In 2007 University College Birmingham were granted Taught Degree Awarding Powers by the Quality Assurance Agency. The Privy Council of the UK Government gave our institution the powers to award our own Foundation, Bachelors and Masters Degrees. Taught Degree Awarding Powers makes it possible for University College Birmingham to award degrees in subjects outside of the University of Birmingham's expertise.
