Birmingham City University (BCU) is a dynamic, business-engaged Institution with over 24,000 students from 80 countries.

The University has a dual mission of enabling personal transformation, and to be the University for Birmingham and the region. This includes the delivery of practice-based research and knowledge transfer; business growth expertise and support activities; provision of a highly-skilled, work-ready graduate workforce; and interdisciplinary academic and industry collaborations. Two-thirds of our students are drawn from Birmingham and the West Midlands with over half from BAME backgrounds reflecting the University’s commitment to inclusivity.

The University’s academic experts and specialist staff work with hundreds of businesses and organisations regionally, nationally and internationally to create leading, practice-based research and new knowledge that delivers business impact. We have extensive sector linkages driving research, collaboration and innovation around priority areas such as smart specialisation, creative and digital, engineering, advanced manufacturing and health-related life sciences.
