Agent Enquiries - We are currently not appointing any further agents to represent the University in India. We have recently received a significant number of applications from India and therefore, we cannot consider any further agent enquiries.
UCB is in the heart of Birmingham, a city with one of the youngest, most diverse populations in Europe – not to mention more than 65,000 students.
There is nowhere quite like University College Birmingham. Not only are we Europe’s leading specialist in management courses for the culinary arts, hospitality and tourism management, but we are also situated in the heart of one of Britain’s most vibrant cities. Our students enjoy the best of both worlds, academic and cultural.
Our vocational degree courses, experienced tutors and strong links with business give students the skills they need to tackle a career in a range of rapidly expanding industries. As well as excellent tuition, we pride ourselves on being a friendly place to study. As specialists, we are not a huge university: our facilities are spread over three sites within a few minutes’ walk of each building.
Students are never just a number at UCB: our doors are always open to help and support you throughout your studies. In short, as a learning and life experience, UCB is hard to match.
Post Study Work Visa
UCB has welcomed the announcement by the UK government of a proposal to reinstate the two-year post-study work visa for international graduates from the 2020/21 academic year.
It is understood the new 'Graduate' route will be available to all international students who successfully complete an undergraduate or postgraduate level course at an approved institution, granting a subsequent two-year period to work or find employment in the UK. The proposal is excellent news for our students who will have the opportunity to gain experience and build on their careers in this country after graduating.
Please be aware that this proposal has yet to be confirmed as government policy. UCB will provide further information in due course on how the plans will apply to those enrolling in 2020/21 and those currently on courses as soon as the government confirm the establishment of this route to us.
If you would like to apply to study at UCB, you can either apply direct or you can apply through our UCB India office and the team will support and guide you through the application process.
