Open Days - See for yourself

There's so much going on in Birmingham – from the buzzy street markets to the unmissable transformation of the whole city and our campus. Study here and you'll be at the heart of it all. You too could be taught by our trailblazing academics and study in our innovative £340m facilities. When possible, the best way to explore what's on offer is to come and see us in person. 

Postgraduate Open Event

Come and visit us on-campus, where you'll be able to explore our facilities in person. You'll be able to hear more about your chosen subject area from our academics, and there will be opportunities for you to get all of your questions answered, as well as the chance to tour our University.

The event will run 4pm - 7pm on Wednesday 4 May 2022.

Campus tours
