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. 

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

Step 1 - Register your place

Our online open days include subject-specific presentations where lecturers will highlight key modules 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 3 October below. We will then send confirmation of your place and joining instructions.

If you are joining us from your mobile, please ensure you have downloaded the GoToMeeting app.
