Charting your career path
BIRMINGHAM City University (BCU) is proud of its 150 years of experience in education. Situated in Birmingham, BCU is in the United Kingdom’s second largest city and has an enrolment of approximately 25,000 students.
It offers over 350 courses from foundation, undergraduate, postgraduate to research level.
As a student at BCU, you start charting your career path the minute you join.
BCU combines industry-standard facilities and lecturers with real life experiences, which make its graduates among the most employable. The approach has been taken to emphasise employability skills as a key element of the curriculum.
Employability and employer engagement are essential factors in the validation or revalidation process of every course.
What makes BCU so popular is that most of its students move on to great jobs. The Sunday Times University Guide 2012 ranked BCU 29th out of 123 universities in the UK for the most students in graduate level roles.
BCU is staffed by excellent faculty members, especially in the creative and professional practices.
The groundbreaking industry collaborations are also renowned, with over 50 professional accreditations for the courses at the last count.
Strong industry and professional partnerships with firms, including Apple, Cartier, Cisco, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, SAP and Rolls-Royce ensure that graduates leave with skills and knowledge employers value most.
BCU’s world-leading research ensures the latest insights are incorporated into teaching.
Students are at the heart of everything – BCU’s award-winning Student Academic Partners scheme teams up staff and students to find ways to make their teaching better.
BCU has also been constantly investing – a new student accommodation, an RM8.5mil sports centre at the City North Campus and construction currently underway on the new RM61mil extension to the City Centre Campus. This places them in the top 10 universities for spending on facilities (Complete University Guide 2012).
BCU also received an “outstanding” rating from Ofsted in its primary and secondary teacher training courses.
BCU’s six academic faculties include the Birmingham Institute of Art and Design, Birmingham City Business School, Faculty of Education, Law & Social Sciences, Faculty of Health, Faculty of Performance, Media & English and Faculty of Technology, Engineering and the Environment.
