How long is an experience day?
Our on-campus experience days usually run from 10am-2pm to leave us enough time to get through the range of activities we plan.
However, this is flexible, and we will work with each school to tailor the day to best suit your requirements.
Is lunch provided?
We do not provide lunches for our campus experience days, but we will always allocate some time for students to eat at either our Summer Row Café or EatSpace area in McIntyre house to ensure they get a full experience of our campus.
Is parking available?
If you are travelling via minibus, we can usually sort a parking space for this. Please note, there are no coach or large bus spaces available at our campuses.
If you require parking, please let us know as soon as possible so that we can work to arrange this for you.
Which year groups are these days tailored to, and is there a maximum number of students I can bring?
Our campus experience days are suitable and tailored to Years 9-13, and our maximum capacity is 50 students per group.
What are we shown during the campus tour?
Our campus tours, headed by our fantastic student ambassadors, will show you a range of the brilliant facilities we have here at University College Birmingham. Dependent on time, it will include a tour of our Summer Row, McIntyre House and Moss House buildings.
If your cohort of students is interested in a particular area, we can also show you a facility specifically related to that course. For example, if the students you bring are interested in working in tourism or aviation, we can show you our state-of-the-art Aviation and Tourism Suite, which contains a mock plane cabin as well as check-in areas for students to use. If there is anything in particular you would like to see, please let us know in advance, and we will try to arrange this.
A very good, well-taught session which supplied you with lots of information that may be necessary for your future. The ambassadors and people here are very welcoming and friendly, making the experience a lot more comfortable and open.
It was really good and informative and I managed to learn about courses I never knew were there!
I would 100% recommend. It was fun!
