We run online postgraduate events throughout the year to help you get a feel for what it's like to study with us, so make sure you browse our online events regularly.

From advice and guidance on the step up from undergraduate to postgraduate study, to insight into short course and microcredential options that fit around your existing job; join us at a range of online events designed to help you make an informed choice about postgraduate study.

A University of Birmingham degree is a valuable asset, creating networks, experiences and opportunities which will help you in the future. Whether you want to widen your skills base, further your knowledge and boost your career prospects or even change careers, we have over 600 taught postgraduate programmes, a wealth of world-leading research opportunities and a growing portfolio of short courses to choose from. We also have a range of Professional Development courses on offer in various colleges and subjects areas to help you upskill and continue life-long learning within a more condensed timeframe.

You can browse our upcoming events, view on-demand content and read our students' experiences on our dedicated Postgraduate Events Platform. If there isn't an upcoming event for your subject area yet, why not meet us in person at one of our on-campus events, such as our Postgraduate Open Days or Campus Tours? You can also read our postgraduate students' blogs or talk directly with our students via Unibuddy or Live Chat.
