Airport Welcome: Our Meet and Greet Service

University College Birmingham will offer you a warm welcome from the moment you arrive in the UK. 

On certain dates throughout the year, we will have University representatives in the arrival halls at Birmingham International Airport to meet new students when they land. If you are flying into another UK airport then coach services run frequently to Birmingham Airport which you can book through  If you are using this service, when booking please indicate it next to your time of arrival on the booking form. E.g 14:00 (National Express)

Our representatives will escort you to pre-arranged transportation, which will take you to your halls of residence or to the University campus if you prefer.
