Effective leadership is a hallmark of the University of Birmingham. Today, we have a global reputation as a rich and diverse institution known for inspirational thinking, financial stability, and strong local, national, and international partnerships.

Our heritage as the original ‘redbrick’ is combined with one of the most compelling and ambitious agendas in higher education. The University has been transformed in recent years, characterised by major investments in academic staffing, investment of £1 billion in campus facilities, strong and improving outcomes for our students, annual growth in research performance, and bold new moves such as establishing the only university-run secondary school and sixth form in the country, and opening a new campus in Dubai.
