Student life on campus

University life is not just about lectures and studying. University should be one of the best times of your life – an opportunity to grow as a person and to make lifelong friends.

As well as abundant quiet and collaborative study spaces, you will also have access to a recreational space with pool-tables, foosball tables, table-tennis and gaming facilities for some friendly competition with your friends; sports facilities on our doorstep to ensure body is as healthy as mind; our innovative ‘Rain Room’ – a green haven to for quiet relaxation or reading; and the all-important student association space to unwind between lectures.

We recognise that our postgraduate students will have very different requirements to that of our undergraduate community, so we have incorporated a postgraduate zone where students will have a dedicated social area for networking with peers and academic staff, quiet study spaces and access to our executive suite for executive education to nurture and prioritise life-long learning and development.

Our dedicated Student Experience and Wellbeing team operate throughout the year to provide both proactive activities and events designed to boost wellbeing and student engagement, as well as one-to-one guidance and support whenever it is needed.

As well as our fantastic facilities inside, we wanted to ensure we maximise the use of our outside space by providing  shaded, open-air and fully planted courtyard spaces with peaceful water features which will allow you to escape the classroom, take advantage of Dubai’s temperate winter climate and utilise a calm and peaceful study or relaxation space.

Accommodation

Students studying away from the family home will of course need somewhere to stay where they feel relaxed, comfortable and secure.

Sitting in the heart of Dubai International Academic City, our new campus, is within easy walking distance of a range of excellent student accommodation communities, offering options to suit a range of budgets. Student experience is truly outstanding, with excellent facilities such as gyms, games rooms, outdoor cinema space and social spaces in a high quality, safe and supportive environment.

Alumni

Your connection to Birmingham doesn’t end when you graduate, you will become part of a global network of more than 300,000 alumni living in over 150 different countries. The new campus will become a hub for our community across the region, hosting a range of events and activities enabling you to enhance your professional development, reconnect with old friends and stay engaged with our unique community.

Everyone is really friendly, if I ever need anything the Student Services team are always willing to help with a smile. The community is really close knit and it’s really easy to meet people, socialise and make new friends. It’s really fun to hang out in the Student Association room between classes and play foosball!
