Sixth Form Centre - Mini Prospectus 2024

Welcome to our unique new Sixth Form Centre at University College Birmingham. We offer a rare and special combination: a dedicated A-level facility as part of a larger university campus. What this means is that you will get the best of both worlds – an award-winning, supportive environment while being prepared for university at a university, all in the heart of the city. Our partnership with the University of Warwick allows us to go above and beyond, inspiring our students by providing them with amazing opportunities to experience university life. University College Birmingham was voted as having the best student support in the UK in the 2022 Whatuni Student Choice Awards, which is testament to our commitment to student welfare and providing the resources and guidance our students need to succeed. We are thrilled to now be able to provide our sixth form students with this wraparound care while they take these important steps into a more grown-up and exciting way of learning. We are proud to be different – it is what we believe will make our Sixth Form Centre great and our students successful. We look forward to welcoming you on campus and showing you what we have to offer.
