The Barber Institute, Winterbourne Gardens, and Bramall Music Building are among our campus attractions. We host a wide variety of cultural and sporting events for the city - making us one of the top destinations in Birmingham for academics and tourists alike.


Dubai is just as impressive - combining cutting edge technology with heritage, tradition, and the beauty of Arabic culture and architecture.
