Birmingham is a university with a global reputation, meaning that our students graduate with a degree that is recognised and respected around the world. As the only global top 100 university with a campus in Dubai, we are also ranked 79th in the QS World University Rankings. What is particularly significant about these rankings is that they draw on data from global employers and other leading higher education institutions.

The reputation of a great university is built on the quality of its research and teaching. The results of the most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF) confirmed our position as one of only a handful of British universities that can produce world-leading or internationally renowned research across such a broad range of subjects.
