Our Campus

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 in Dubai International Academic City (DIAC). It has been designed by Hopkins Architects and the construction is managed by TECOM Group.

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.
