January 2020 - Orientation and Enrolment Week

Orientation at UCB is a programme delivered for all students to better prepare and equip them for the challenges that higher education has to offer. Over the duration of your orientation programme we will introduce you to the inner workings of UCB and familiarise you with how to access all of the fantastic support services that we have to offer.


Important information - If you have been offered a place at UCB you will be sent an online pre-registration email during the summer. You must complete your online pre-registration before you official enrolment date (this is when you come in and physically enrol). Pre-registration will enable you to check that all your personal information is accurate and up to date before you enrol.

We need to register you as a UCB student and enrol you onto your programme. Once you are registered and enrolled, for several days we will provide a series of orientation activities that will introduce you to the UK, Birmingham, UCB and your fellow students. These activities are always very popular; our international students always say how much they enjoyed the orientation activities, and how very helpful these were too.   

During this week you can also register with a doctor and open a bank account.


Enrolment will take place at Summer Row (B3 1JB) between 27-31 January.
