Visit us

Deciding on a university degree programme can be difficult. How do you start to make a decision?

There are several opportunities throughout the year to visit us, aiming to offer you a greater perspective and the chance to make an informed choice. Find out more below:

Offer-holder Visit Days

We strongly encourage our UCAS applicants to visit the University of Birmingham in order that you can get a real taste of what it is like to study here.

We invite all offer holders to visit the University. You will learn to more about our courses, see the excellent facilities in the Department and the University of Birmingham's beautiful campus. These days are also the perfect opportunity to talk with current students, the Admissions Tutor and other members of academic teaching staff about studying at the University of Birmingham.

Offer Holder Visit Day programme

The programme for the day follows a format similar to below:

  • Information on careers and what it is like to work in engineering, from current students who have been on industrial placements
  • Details of the course structure and the content of the modules
  • Advice on obtaining scholarships and other support for your learning
  • A chance to quiz current students and academic teaching staff on what it is like to study at the University of Birmingham
  • A taster experience lecture and laboratory classes
  • A pop-up Professor who will talk to you about leading edge research that informs our teaching and that you may become involved with in your project work

Many of our current students tell us that the opportunity to visit the department and have their questions answered was very useful to them in making the difficult choice between universities. We therefore urge you to accept this invitation, and we look forward to meeting you.
