We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Situated in the West Midlands, around 100 miles north-west of London, Birmingham is the UK’s second largest city. There are five universities in Birmingham as well as a range of other higher education institutions and around 80,000 resident students.
Like other major UK cities, Birmingham expanded significantly during the Industrial Revolution of the 18th and 19th centuries.
However, whereas other areas were primarily centres of material processing, manufacture and trade, Birmingham was strongly associated with invention and entrepreneurship – with many new technologies and industrial processes pioneered in the city.
Today, Birmingham offers postgraduate students the benefits of a rich cultural tradition that more than matches its long history of industrial innovation. Indeed, Birmingham’s heritage in manufacturing is aptly reflected in its status as the birthplace of the famous band, Black Sabbath, inventors of a slightly different form of ‘heavy metal’.
More sedate aspects of Birmingham’s history can be experienced in its many museums and art galleries, recording the city’s association with the Pre-Raphaelite movement in painting as well as its proud status as the home of Cadbury’s chocolate.
The oldest university in Birmingham is the University of Birmingham, which received its charter in 1900. It is a member of the Russell Group of leading UK research universities and is regularly ranked among the top 150 institutions worldwide.
In addition to the University of Birmingham, Birmingham is also home to Aston University, Birmingham City University, University College Birmingham and Newman University Birmingham as well as a campus of the Open University and a range of other higher education providers.
This wide range of institutions offering postgraduate degrees in Birmingham reflects the city’s long tradition of intellectual innovation and academic growth.
Birmingham has a strong background in sectors as varied as advanced engineering, life sciences and digital industries. It’s home to the headquarters of HSBC UK as well an important research centre for Cadbury and a Jaguar Land Rover manufacturing plant. Birmingham also has a long association with jewellery-making, with the city’s Jewellery Quarter dating back hundreds of years and forming the largest commercial area of its kind of Europe.
