Apply For Birmingham City University
We try to ensure our application process is as straightforward as possible. The process of applying for a place to study at Birmingham City University varies depending on your course and level of study. These pages provide a step-by-step guide to the application process.
Once you’ve found the course you’d like to apply for, it’s important that you make sure you have, or are aiming to achieve, the entry requirements for that course, which can include both academic and non-academic elements.
What is the purpose of having entry requirements?
We want you to succeed with your studies, so you need to be able to demonstrate that you’re capable of coping with the rigours of studying at the level you’re applying for. Some subjects may require a certain level of knowledge of that subject or related ones, or you may need appropriate experience in a particular discipline or area.
How do I find out the entry requirements for my course?
Entry requirements can be found in the individual course listings in our courses section. Look under the ‘Entry Requirements’ tab for your course.
If your qualifications were studied overseas, you will need to check the general entry requirements for applicants from your country.
Competence in English language
Our courses are taught and assessed entirely in English. Therefore, if your first language is not English, you will need to demonstrate appropriate proficiency. If you need to improve your English before beginning your studies, you may be able to take one of our pre-sessional English courses.
