Bringing our college open days to you...

Thinking about your next steps after school and wondering what options are now available to you? There are so many reasons why you should choose to study at University College Birmingham, but don't just take our word for it.

As we are currently unable to hold events on campus, we wanted to bring our open days directly to you. To do this, we have designed an online open day packed with everything from insight on your course of interest, 3D tours and taster sessions to Q&As with tutors and the chance to talk to support services.

Follow the steps below, and discover more about our college courses and what it's like to study with us.

Step 1 - Register your place

Our online open days include subject-specific presentations at 12pm and 2pm, where tutors will highlight key topics that develop your knowledge and enhance your future career. This is your opportunity to ask any questions specific to your chosen subject.

Please register for our next open day on Saturday 23 January below. We will then send confirmation of your place and joining instructions.
