With figures in the DLHE survey 2011/12 showing that 90 per cent of undergraduates were either in employment or further study within six months of graduating, Birmingham City University has a reputation for providing high quality education in a professional and friendly environment with a focus on practical skills.
Our reputation, innovative teaching and state-of-the-art facilities - including industry-standard TV studios and mock hospital wards, courtrooms and classrooms, make Birmingham City University an attractive place to study.
Around 22,000 students from over 80 countries study at Birmingham City University and we make sure that they are at the heart of everything we do. One of the three long-standing universities in Birmingham, we are investing £260 million in our facilities, including our new City Centre Campus at Birmingham’s flourishing Millennium Point. We have a long history of close links with Britain’s vibrant second city, collaborating with business, industry and the creative services, and our contribution to the region is reflected in the £270 million we put into the local economy, supporting thousands of jobs in the area. We also work with globally recognised names, such as Apple, Cisco and Cartier.
Offering a diverse range of highly respected courses, we are ranked third in the UK for music research (Research Assessment Exercise 2008), eighth for drama and dance and eleventh for media studies (Guardian League Table 2014), while our primary and secondary teacher training is rated as Grade 1 Ofsted 'Outstanding'.
