If you are visiting our Open Day this Saturday, here are some of the activities that if I were you I wouldn’t want to miss.

City North

Vice-Chancellor Professor Cliff Allan is giving a talk at the Kenrick Lecture Theatre. So make sure you arrive on time, as this will be your chance to find out everything you need to know about the University.

After that, you may want to head to Room 116, Cox Building, at 10am or 1pm to hear Professor David Wilson. He’s one of the country’s most experienced criminologists and author of ‘A History of British Serial Killing’. The professor will discuss the phenomenon of serial murder and what this might tell us about the development of British society since 1960.

Do you know what to put in your personal statement when it comes to applying to University? Our advice on writing your Personal Statement presentation by the Centre for Academic Success will be able to give you all the tricks you need to write the best possible personal statement. They’ll also be on hand at our City Centre Campus should you wish to visit us there.


Our Faculty of Health aspires to provide the highest possible quality of student-centred education, using the latest technological advances to demonstrate excellence in preparing you for a career within health and social care.

I’d definitely advise that you attend one of our fascinating subject talks where you’ll get the opportunity to watch real life simulations and demonstrations of our state-of-the-art teaching equipment. You might also get the chance to meet our SIM men and SIM babies (realistic breathing, talking simulated patients).

The Faculty will be holding a number of drop-in sessions where you will have the opportunity to meet our healthcare professionals and view our state-of-the-art facilities. Don’t miss our Paramedics Simulation, held at the rear of Seacole Building at 10.15am and 1.15pm. Those of you who are brave enough may even have the opportunity to participate as ‘patients’ in our life-like re-enactment of an emergency situation.

City Centre

Meanwhile, over at our City Centre Campus, visitors will have a chance to see the brand new Parkside Building, which is to house the Birmingham Institute of Art and Design and Birmingham School of Media from September.

At Millennium Point, you should definitely have a look around the Birmingham Made Me Design Expo if you have got the time. You will see incredible work produced in our region, from Aston Martin cars to the helmet used in the film Prometheus. Birmingham Made Me runs until Friday 21 June, so feel free to come back and explore the Expo as well as some of the seminars.

Last but not least, if you head over to Gosta Green Campus (which will be replaced by Parkside this year) you will be able to see some fantastic work produced by Birmingham Institute of Art and Design graduates.
