At Birmingham Chemistry, we have also welcomed students from across the globe and are equally keen to encourage students from diverse societal and cultural backgrounds to consider applying to study in our School.

Do you live in the Greater West Midlands and come from a background where there is very little or no experience of higher education? If so, the University operates a scheme which may be of interest:

Access to Birmingham (A2B) scheme

The A2B scheme is designed to help students, who have little or no experience of higher education, find out about what studying at university involves.

Schools and potential applicants are encouraged to visit the A2B scheme website to find out more about this programme, the application criteria, benefits of applying to University through the scheme, and details on how to apply.
