Sixth Form Centre - Mini Prospectus 2024

WHY SIXTH FORM CENTRE AT UNIVERSITY COLLEGE BIRMINGHAM? EXCELLENT LINKS WITH INDUSTRY Another real benefit of studying at a university is that we can provide you with relevant work experience placements, study visits, masterclasses, guest speakers, field trips and much more. PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT Students who have already made a successful transition to a college environment at 16 are better placed to successfully make the transition to university at 18. We’ll help you develop the skills you need to thrive academically and personally when you progress. STUDIES TO SUIT YOU You will need to choose three subjects to study at A Level. This may include Health and Social Care or Criminology (which are equivalent to one A level each). If an A level programme is not right for you, our admissions team can advise on a wide range of vocational alternatives. Please see our college prospectus for more information. FACILITIES Our brand-new centre will be ready for our first student intake in September 2024. You can be part of the first generation to study with us. LOCATION We are based right in the centre of Birmingham. Excellent transport links mean you can get to us from across the city and beyond. OUTSTANDING SUPPORT Our support is award-winning and nationally recognised. You can rest assured that you’re in safe hands. COMMUNITY You will study in a dedicated sixth form centre where you can thrive in a supportive environment, but you will also be a student at a university. You will be in more of an adult environment than school, on first-name terms with your teachers, but with the care and attention to help you do your best. MINI PROSPECTUS 2024 5 4
