Orientation and Induction Programme

We are delighted you have chosen to study with us at UCB! We will now do all we can to ensure your time we us at UCB is a happy and productive one. Studying in a foreign country can be a daunting prospect, but we have much experience in helping students make the transition to life in the UK, and study at UCB, as smooth and enjoyable as possible.

To help you settle in, we offer a one-week orientation programme where you will learn all about living and studying in the UK and learn all about what Birmingham has to offer to you.

The Orientation Programme is especially developed for students who are new to the UK and do not speak English as their first language. You will find information about life at UCB and about the most effective ways to study and present your coursework. You will meet key staff members who are very experienced in helping International and EU students feel welcome and ready for their new studies.

The programme also gives you the chance to meet fellow students and experience the social and cultural life Birmingham and the UK has to offer.

Monday 3 September - Friday 7 September 2018 - please register here.
