University of Birmingham

University Colleges and Facilities
(Birmingham, West Midlands, England)

The University of Birmingham has eight distinct schools of study, providing instruction in humanities, business, education, social science, law, engineering, science, and medicine. Together, these schools offer more than 500 undergraduate and 320 postgraduate programmes, all of which are given generous funding for research and extension projects.

The university has some of the best-equipped TV and radio studios and broadcast stations, which are open to students for class productions. Audio and video equipment are available for hire for students filming on location. The Media and Communications department has strong links with BBC and Sky News, both of which have bases inside the university.

The science, engineering, and medicine departments are all supplied with state-of-the-art laboratories and equipment for research and instructional purposes. Some recent acquisitions are X-ray diffractometers for the School of Chemistry and new genetic software for the Functional Genomics and Proteomics Laboratories.

The University of Birmingham offers single honours, joint honours, foundation year, and major/minor programmes in eight departments. The eight departments are:
  • Arts, Languages, Literature, and History
  • Education
  • Business
  • Social Sciences, Government, and Politics
  • Law
  • Engineering
  • Medicine, Dentistry, and Health Services
  • Science

Single honours programmes are standard tracks leading to a degree in one area of study. Joint degree and major/minor programmes allow students to study two distinct fields and be credited with degrees for both, while the foundation year allows students to enter a specific department without A-level qualifications.

Postgraduate programmes are offered in all eight departments as well, with an option for taught programmes. Programmes with partners are a popular option for mature students. The university coordinates with the Birmingham College of Food, Tourism, and Creative Studies for seven taught programmes in highly specialised areas.
