Students Under 18s

The BIA provides additional support for students under the age of 18. This includes a daily check-in and termly one-to-one meetings with the Wellbeing Officer. All staff who are in regular contact with students under the age of 18 will have an advanced disclosure check undertaken by the UK Government Disclosure and Barring Service.

We understand that starting university can be an exciting but daunting time, particularly when you're under 18. The University is committed to supporting all students to help them settle in and make the most of their time at Birmingham. Read information for students who will be under the age of 18 whilst studying, and for their parents/guardians on our University welcome web pages.
