The University of Birmingham, located in Birmingham, England, was established in 1900 and has since been leading the way in research and education in the fields of gene structure, medicine, space research and communications. Birmingham was the first Redbrick university to gain a charter and thus university status. The University currently has over 26,000 students from the UK and around the world. It operates out of two campuses: the Edgbaston Campus and Selly Oak campus. The academic departments cover a wide range of subjects that are arranged into 8 areas. They are the Arts, Languages, Literature and History; Business; Education; Engineering; Law; Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences; Science; and Social Sciences, Government and Politics. 

Campus Information 

Birmingham's new sports centre is planned to sit on the corner of Bristol Road and Edgbaston Park Road. It will be a large multi-sport facility for students, staff and the local community, and will include the city’s first 50-metre swimming pool. A new library will provide improved opportunities for community access to the vast University collections, and cultural heritage. The Student Services Hub will see part of the interior of the main Aston Webb Building remodelled to house a number of different services including employability, careers and a 400-seat lecture theatre.

The University is located five minutes from the heart of the city of Birmingham, a city with a heritage of multiculturalism and non-conformism, with campuses in the Edgbaston and Selly Oak areas of the city of Birmingham.
