Our foundation pathway provides you with a fully integrated experience, which means you will be taught by Birmingham academics and have full access to all the facilities at the University of Birmingham’s stunning Edgbaston campus.
The Engineering and Physical Sciences Pathway will lead to a number of undergraduate degrees that have an excellent reputation for teaching and research. STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) subjects are critically important in the development of our future fuels, materials and machines, and the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences plays a significant role in training the next generation of world-class engineers and scientists to solve our future challenges. We have strong links with major UK employers such as Rolls-Royce and Airbus, and our staff and students are at the forefront of research into a wide variety of areas, from working with particle physicists at the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland to using nanotechnology to develop microengines.
