Postgraduate Campus Tours and Conversation

If you are interested in postgraduate study at Birmingham, you have the opportunity to attend our Postgraduate Campus Tours and Conversation events. 

Our current students will be able to give an insight into postgraduate study at the University, and life in Birmingham. Where possible we will try to ensure that tours are tailored to your own subject interests.

Tours typically begin at 15:00 and last approximately one hour, although timings can be flexible. They include all the main facilities on campus and those that will be of specific interest to your chosen subject area.

Comfortable footwear is advised. If you or anyone accompanying you has any accessibility requirements, please advise us when booking your place. This will allow us to make all the necessary arrangements to ensure your visit is as easy as possible.

Book your place



Our campus tours are primarily for prospective students and therefore we advise that you only bring one or two guests with you. Places are limited and it is advisable to book at least one week in advance.

On arrival please head to reception in the Aston Webb building and register with our postgraduate ambassadors. We will send you a confirmation email with further details and travel information closer to the event. 

Cancellation Policy

If we need to cancel or change your campus tour, whenever possible we will try to contact you in advance to let you know. Please supply us with a contact telephone number when booking so that this is possible. Please note that on rare occasions, because of circumstances beyond our control, we may have to cancel tours without prior notice to visitors. On such occasions the Student Recruitment team takes no responsibility for any inconvenience or costs incurred. We can however, provide a self guided tour brochure for you to conduct a tour independently. 

In the event that you are no longer available to attend, please let us know as soon as possible so that we can make your place(s) available to other visitors.
