Birmingham City University

  • Teacher education courses consistently produce among the best scores in Ofsted inspections. The university was also awarded a national teaching centre in health and social care.

    More than 40 per cent of the students come from working-class homes and 97 per cent are state educated. About half come from the West Midlands, many from ethnic minorities. The drop-out rate has been improving and now matches the national average for the university’s courses and entry grades.

    BCU also has one of the largest programmes of part-time courses in Britain, making it the biggest provider of higher education in the region. With the city’s other universities, BCU is working with schools in the region to maintain its record of inspiring more young people to go on to higher education.

    Many students enter through the network of associated further education colleges, which run foundation and access programmes.
    The university has been increasing its portfolio of high-tech degree courses such as electronic commerce, communications and network engineering, and electronic systems.

    The 2008 Research Assessment Exercise recorded some world-leading work in all seven areas covered by the university’s submission. In art and design, 30 per cent were given the top grade, placing Birmingham City in the top ten nationally for the subject. Most research is applied, with an accent on employment in the region.

    University-owned accommodation is guaranteed for first-years, and there is plentiful private housing in the city. Birmingham’s student scene is highly rated.
