University of Warwick accreditation

STARTING JANUARY 2022

From January 2022, a wide range of our undergraduate and postgraduate degree courses, as well as some higher level apprenticeships, will be accredited and awarded by the University of Warwick, a prestigious Russell Group university ranked 8th in the UK by The Guardian 2021 league table.

Building on our academic excellence, this means that these courses are developed by us and delivered in our world-class facilities at University College Birmingham, but graduates will receive their final awards from the University of Warwick.

An accreditation to support student ambitions

What benefits does the accreditation bring? 

Our two universities are innovative, imaginative and have distinctive and collective strengths, and this forward-thinking partnership is designed to benefit our students and their professional ambitions, as well as the regional economy. 

As part of the accreditation, the partnership with the University of Warwick gives students the opportunity to: 

  • Tap into exciting undergraduate and postgraduate study and research opportunities, as well as higher and degree apprenticeships that not only meet sector-recognised standards, but are accredited by a leading Russell Group university – whatever a student's background
  • Access the broad employer networks of both universities, supporting and helping students achieve strong employability outcomes
  • Access online learning and library resources that complement our own award-winning library services and hi-tech learning environments
