Why Birmingham

Birmingham has been challenging and developing great minds for more than a century. Characterised by a tradition of innovation, research at the University has broken new ground, pushed forward the boundaries of knowledge and made an impact on people’s lives.


Departments from across the School are largely based within the refurbished Muirhead Tower on the University’s main Edgbaston campus offering state-of-the-art teaching and research study facilities including free wifi throughout the building and dedicated study areas for postgraduate research students.
