Bringing our open days to you...
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 lecturers, the chance to talk to support services about living and studying in Birmingham and more. We want to show you that with an undergraduate degree from University College Birmingham, it feels like nothing can stop you.
