International students at University College Birmingham

We warmly welcome applications from international students. If you accept the offer of a place at University College Birmingham, you will join our international student community, which is made up of 1,100 students from more than 65 countries, as well as, students from the UK and other European countries.

Why choose UCB?

Choosing the right institution to go to is, of course, a very important decision. Everyone has different needs and expectations, however, speaking generally you need to feel that you are getting the best quality education, and in the best environment.”

If you feel your English Language skills are not strong enough to join one of our full-time courses then we are able to offer a one semester Intensive English Course. We also run an English Language programme in the summer, which consists of two blocks of study (one taught in July and one taught in August).

The institution enjoys an excellent reputation in the industries we serve and visitors to the restaurants and Spa facilities are highly complimentary.

We are able to guarantee accommodation in institution owned halls of residence to all first year students. Have a look around University College Birmingham by viewing the images below.

As an international student you can be reassured that whilst away from home you will get the support you need in terms of studies and personal welfare. The International Officer is happy to answer any of your questions. However, it is only when you have visited the institution and experienced it for yourself that you will really begin to get the feel of how we can help you achieve.

We look forward to welcoming you to the institution in the future.
