Transition to University study

The way that you study for your degree is probably going to be quite different to how you've studied before. Our academics and support teams have put together a collection of materials to support your transition to University and get you ready to start your degree at Birmingham.

We are continually uploading materials that we hope you'll find helpful, so if you can't find your subject please check back at another time.
