There are four faculties at Birmingham City University:
Business, Law and Social Sciences
The faculty offers a wide variety of courses, including some that are vocationally focused, and available on a flexible basis. The faculty also supports lifelong learning and equips students with the skills needed to thrive.
The faculty is recognised for the quality of its academic programmes. Many of the courses on offer have accreditations from professional bodies, an advantage when students seek jobs and further study after leaving university.
Arts, Design and Media
The faculty has impressive links with industry, including many high-profile brands and companies. Creative Skillset has accredited a number of the Faculty’s media courses.
It has the only centre in the Midlands approved by the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) to offer their Advanced Certificate and Diploma courses and runs courses in Hong Kong and Thailand.
Health, Education and Life Sciences
The focus of the faculty is on training for health and education professionals. However, its emphasis on life sciences is growing. It has a good record when it comes to graduate outcomes, and students are successful in finding employment after studying the practically-minded courses. Experienced practitioners teach the courses and help guide students into their chosen industries.
Computing, Engineering, and the Built Environment
With close links to industry partners, the Faculty of Computing, Engineering and the Built Environment (CEBE), helps students to get involved in the latest research and to make real and lasting contributions to their chosen industries.
The faculty also has good international links, allowing students to explore emerging technologies from across the world, and offering changes for exchange programmes abroad.
