International students

As an international student, we know that the learning in the UK may be different to your home country. That's why we have created a lots of helpful resources and information for as an international student - from the UK grading system to British customs and quirks to help you feel comfortable when studying away from home.


As Canvas is the platform you will use for your learning and to access teaching resources this year, we have created an International Orientation Canvas Course that you will be able to access from 17 September. We will also send you an email to let you know when this is open for you.  

If you have questions about your arrival at Birmingham, our International Students Team can be contacted on their website and there is also information about visas, accommodation and arrival at Birmingham in our Frequently Asked Questions.
