Welcome

Welcome to the University of Birmingham! We look forward to welcoming you in these unusual times, and are here to give you the information and tools for you to make the most of this opportunity, get involved with our University community and get to know your new home. 

From useful information on our services and support, to guidance on health and safety, and advice on preparing to study with us online and in person, we have lots of information to help you within these Welcome pages. We have a range of resources to help you settle in, make new friends and feel prepared for your studies with us - ensuring you still receive the infamous Birmingham Welcome!

Whether you have already arrived or will be joining us soon, we are looking forward to welcoming you. We appreciate that this year in particular, there are many things to consider, so for 2020 we have included as much information as possible online, so that it is available wherever you are and whenever you join us.
