Birmingham, B5 5JU, GB


Listed in the Sunday Times University Guide 2013 as one of the UK's top 30 universities for the most students in graduate-level jobs and with figures from the Higher Education Statistics Agency in July 2018 showing that 97.4% of our 2017 graduates were in employment or further study six months after graduating, Birmingham City University has a reputation for providing high quality education in a professional and friendly environment with a focus on practical skills. Around 23,500 students from over 80 countries study at Birmingham City University, one of the three long-standing universities in Birmingham. From the UK's leading criminologist to the first female President of the Royal Institute of British Architects, our academics come from and maintain strong links with industry. We collaborate closely with the business, industry and creative services of Britain's vibrant second city and our commitment to the region is reflected in the £270 million we put into the local economy, supporting thousands of jobs in the area. Furthermore, our Knowledge Transfer Partnerships create three-way partnerships between graduates, businesses and the University to solve real-world problems and we provide students with opportunities to gain hands-on industry experience through work placements. We are investing £260 million in our facilities - including our new City Centre Campus at Birmingham’s flourishing Millennium Point - which puts us in the UK's top 10 universities for spending on facilities, according to the Complete University Guide 2012 and 2013. Our state-of-the-art facilities include industry-standard TV studios and mock hospital wards, courtrooms and classrooms, while the quality of our education training is reflected in the Grade 1 'Outstanding'​ rating we have received from Ofsted for our primary and secondary courses.
