Masterclass

University College Birmingham offers Masterclass sessions aimed at groups of year 12/13 and FE 1/2 students.

These sessions give you and your students an interactive taster of our undergraduate degree courses from our academic teaching staff. We can offer bespoke masterclass sessions, on dates and at times that suit you, dependent on academic availability throughout the year from November to June.

Sessions can be delivered online or on-campus. There is no booking fee for these activities.

Activities must be booked by sixth form or college staff. If you are an individual, please take a look at our webinars and online resources for students here.
