Applicant Visit Days

If, after having reviewed your UCAS application, we are keen to make you an offer, we shall invite you to attend one of our Applicant Visit Days, which we hold weekly from November through to March.

Attending one of these Days will not only provide us with an opportunity discuss your application with you, but will also provide you with a valuable opportunity to see the School, our beautiful campus and the halls of residence, as well as chat to members of staff, and perhaps more importantly, to some of our current students. Importantly, the Applicant Visit Day will also provide you with an opportunity to experience our teaching methods at first-hand, including a lecture, lab work and a problem-based learning activity.

We want these days to provide you with the information you need in order to make an informed decision as to whether or not to choose Birmingham when you make your firm and insurance decisions.  Obviously you can contact us at any time, before or after attending an Applicant Visit Day, for more information.

Travelling to an Applicant Visit Day

Parking on campus is currently very limited due to several major building projects that are taking place as part of our £500 million campus redevelopment and the majority of visitors will be unable to find a space. We, therefore, recommend that visitors use public transport or park and ride facilities to reach the University.

The University has its own railway station (University Station) on campus and this is the easiest and most efficient way to travel to the University.

There are a number of NCP and City Council car parks across the city centre along with large shopping centre car parks and there is a direct train line from Birmingham New Street to University Station. The journey takes approximately 8 minutes from Birmingham New Street and up to six trains an hour depart for the University on the cross-city line (final destination Longbridge or Redditch).

If you do need to drive to the University, parking is located at the North East Car Park (B15 2SA) on Pritchatts Road, however due to the limited number of spaces parking cannot be guaranteed and we strongly advise you consider the options above. This is a pay and display car park; press the yellow button to reduce the charge to £1 for your visit.

Anyone with a blue badge can park in the disabled parking bays on campus. Please report to the East Gate entrance where a member of the Security team will direct you.
