Ucas code: B32

Steeped in history the University of Birmingham has a community campus vibe whilst being on the doorstep to the centre of the UK's second city. And because all students studying at Birmingham become automatic members of the Guild of Students you'll have many chances to develop skills outside of study, have fun, and meet like-minded people.

League table rankings

Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
