Course taster activities
Whether it’s creating your own mocktail, taking part in a virtual reality task or carrying out a skin analysis treatment; our practical activities will give you first-hand experience of your potential future career!
Meet new friends and future classmates
We know that it can be a little daunting starting a new place of education, and we want you to feel as comfortable as possible. This is why the applicant day is the best way to meet your future classmates and make new friends, before you even start!
As well as the Campus Tour, you will also have the choice of joining our Student Ambassadors to view our Halls of Residence, The Maltings. Only a short 10-minute walk from our campus, The Maltings could be your new home away from home.
Although you have applied to study here with us, you may have missed the opportunity to see all of the facilities that we have to offer. If so, no need to worry, as you will have the option to join a Campus Tour, after your second activity session, ran by our Student Ambassadors.
We know that you may still have questions about studying here at University College Birmingham, but our Support Services will be here to help with any concerns. You will be able to speak with Student Finance, Disability Support, Hired and more.
Meet the Guild
If you are thinking about joining a society, sports club or even starting up your own campaign, then make sure to stop by and meet your Guild of Students. You will be able to find out about our clubs, ranging from Cheerleading, Rugby, Netball and Football, to Bakery, Disability, Queer and Drama.
