With small class sizes for personalised, tailored support, University College Birmingham is committed to ensuring that all students have the best possible academic and social experience while studying there. Whatever help is needed to succeed, the university’s specialist teams are committed to giving all students the advice, skills, and support to discover their full potential.
The Centre for Academic Skills and English offers an array of services to help students throughout their studies. With one-to-one or small group sessions available, students can get helpful advice and guidance on writing essays and preparing for exams and presentations. They also have a number of self-help toolkits online for all students to access.
International students can also enrol on pre-sessional or intensive English courses to meet the level of English they need for their course through the centre. Graduate Advantage offers further tailored support, with sessions covering academic skills and preparing for the world of work. There are also dedicated support teams offering friendly, confidential, and impartial guidance and workshops on financial matters, careers and business, mental health and physical wellbeing (including an on-site nurse and trained counsellors), and other day-to-day issues that may arise while studying at the university. There is also pet therapy and special support for students with special educational needs and disabilities.
Students coming from abroad can access a designated, on-campus international centre for personalised support with everything from visas to health and wellbeing, and overseas offices to support with degree choices and the application process.
