Why Birmingham City University Should Be Your First Choice

If you haven’t yet made your mind up about your university choices for a full-time undergraduate course commencing in September 2011, you’ve only a few weeks to submit your UCAS application by the on-time deadline, which is 15 January 2011 for the majority of courses.  As a university, we’re currently seeing a 40% increase in UCAS applications compared to the same time last year so, with increasing competition for places on university courses commencing next Autumn, it’s important to act now.

We’re one of the most increasingly popular universities in the UK, having seen our applications rise by a phenomenal 78% since 2008.

There’s still time to find a place on a degree course this September

There are still vacancies on a variety of courses available through Clearing for September 2008 entry at Birmingham City University.

A variety of diverse undergraduate courses within the field of business are currently available. Both single and joint honours courses offer students the opportunity to develop skills and knowledge which are valued by employers. From gaining knowledge and understanding in areas such as accountancy, finance, management, marketing and human resources to developing personal skills in teamwork, presentation techniques and critical thinking, these degree courses also offer great opportunities for students to undertake an industrial placement year or study abroad for a semester.

Undergraduate courses in engineering are on offer to suitably qualified applicants who are seeking to study a BEng degree at an innovative and well regarded establishment. Many of our engineering degrees offered at our Faculty of Technology, Innovation and Development incorporate professional accreditation from the Institute of Engineering and Technology. We offer programmes with IET accreditation in automotive, mechanical, electronic, manufacturing systems and telecommunications and networks engineering.

A foundation year course is also available to those who may not quite meet the entry requirements to gain entry directly to the degree programme, providing an alternative route for suitable preparatory study to progress onto a degree after successful completion.

We’re still recruiting for the BSc (Hons) Health and Well-being course, a great course to consider if you’re interested in healthcare.
