University College Birmingham is offering limited campus tours for prospective students who want to apply for 2021.
The campus tour will consist of a walking tour and will be undertaken by a Student Ambassador. Each tour will take approximately one hour and will include all facilities across our three sites – McIntyre House, Moss House and Summer Row.
Please note the tour will not include our halls of residence, and academic staff will not be available.
Unfortunately, our campus tours are currently suspended due to the current restrictions. We hope to be able to offer this opportunity again soon. In the meantime why not take a look at our virtual tours here.
