Discover University College Birmingham
Our open days are designed to give you as much information as possible about the University and the course you want to study. They are also a great opportunity to get an insight into our unique atmosphere.
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, Q&As with lecturers, the chance to talk to support services about living and studying in Birmingham and more.
Meet your lecturers and get a feel for your course
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 subject-specific questions.
There will be an online presentation for each course, book onto our online open day to join one of our presentations.
Please note: open day bookings close the day before, but you can still join an online presentation on the day.
Explore our facilities
Excellent teaching goes hand-in-hand with excellent facilities. Supported by our ongoing £130 million investment in our new campuses, equipment and resources, University College Birmingham’s facilities are nothing short of world class.
All of our campuses are within a short walking distance of each other in the heart of the city centre too and while we can’t take you around just now, we hope our facilities page will inspire you.
