2021 Open Days - Content Hub

College of Engineering and Physical Sciences

Birmingham really is the best of both worlds - a green and spacious campus university just minutes from the hustle and bustle of the UK's second city. We can't wait to welcome you to our campus so you can see it for yourself. Before you visit, why not use our virtual tour to get a feel for what it's like to be on campus via a bird's eye view.

For our summer events, to keep everyone safe we are delivering subject talks online to help you understand more about the courses on offer here at the University of Birmingham. We recommend watching these videos before you visit, and you can simply click on the department links below to access the content relevant to you. You can speak to our staff and students on the day of your event should you need to ask any follow-up questions after you've seen the talks.
