Our outstanding new campus opening in September 2021

Our new campus will open in 2021 and we cannot wait to welcome our first cohort to study here, for a student experience like no other in Dubai. The new campus will provide an academic home for up to 2,900 students, a community for Birmingham alumni in the region and hub for community outreach and engagement activities.

Building progress

Birmingham was the first global top 100 and UK Russell Group university to establish a campus in this rapidly developing international education hub. Our new campus is located a short distance away from our existing building in Dubai International Academic City (DIAC). It has been designed by Hopkins Architects and the construction is managed by TECOM Group.

Hear from our students and partners

Students are at the heart of everything we do, so we asked our students what they are most looking forward to when the new campus opens.

We asked some of our partners for their thoughts on what a flagship campus like the University of Birmingham's Dubai campus would mean for the UAE and the wider Gulf region.
