Although a new university, BCU can trace its history back to 1843 through previous colleges which eventually came together to form what is now the university.
With a strong emphasis on offering accredited courses, and a large number of industry partnerships, BCU is a firm choice if you’re thinking about your career.
I've had my ups and downs, but the university and all the tutors have provided a great amount of help, understanding and guidance through all situations. Creativity and exploring new fields are always encouraged.

Student Life in Birmingham
Birmingham has to be one of the most exciting cities in which to study - with five universities and two university colleges it really is a student city. You’ll never be short of things to do in town, whether that’s clubbing, pubbing, shopping or visiting museums and art galleries. Its central location means that Birmingham is also a fantastic spot from which to visit the rest of the UK. Our City Centre Campus is situated right in the heart of the city, with everything you need right on your doorstep. The university has six libraries, so you’ll always have a quiet space to study.
Our City Centre Campus is easy to reach by public transport from across the country. New Street Station is about a 15 minute walk away, but we are closest to Birmingham Moor Street, just a 5-10 minute walk. Public parking is available at Millennium Point in the City Centre campus and is charged by the hour.
City South Campus is well served by public transport. Use the bus stop on Harborne Road, which can be accessed by a footpath between numbers 44 and 46.
City North campus is located just three miles north of the city centre, it’s simple to get to and has on-site parking, and you’re only minutes from the Perry Barr train station and major bus routes.
Crafty Bitches is a knitting and craft society - beginner and experienced knitters/crafters welcome!
The society plays gigs for other societies free of charge, as long as we can promote ourselves! We are also available for hire for any kind of event for very reasonable prices. However, we also accept members with any level of experience, and offer DJ tuition.
Do you like Street Fighter? Smash Bros? Blazblue? Guilty Gear? Well, you've come to the right place! Join us to satisfy your fighting game needs!
We are a new society that puts on live music events for students in Birmingham!
