Stand out from the crowd

Aston Webb

Liberal Arts and Sciences is a new programme at Birmingham, designed in response to international employers' requests for graduates with flexible and wide ranging skills in addition to in-depth knowledge and expertise.

The programme has been developed by drawing on the experiences of world leading partner universities in the US, Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore and in several European countries. 

These international initiatives incorporate the best traditions of both the European and North American liberal arts and sciences, but also understand the new demands of leading employers and research in leadership.

Internationally, Liberal Arts and Sciences graduates progress to the legal professions, major consultancy and management firms, postgraduate study or graduate entry to medicine, subject to following an appropriate pathway during the programme.

Other students will progress to post-graduate study and this can be accelerated in selected cases by access to masters levels module in the final year.
