Birmingham City University is a newly established British University in the city of Birmingham, England. The university has three main campuses serving four faculties, and offers courses in art and design, business, the Built environment,computing, education, engineering, English, healthcare, law, the performing arts, social sciences, and technology.
The university’s contribution to transforming the prospects of the people of Birmingham and beyond stretches back though a succession of predecessor institutions for over 170 years. The university enjoys historical strengths in the creative and performing arts: the Birmingham Government School of Design – the first college of design outside London –was opened in 1843 and Birmingham School of Music (later Birmingham Conservatoire) in 1886. Both were later incorporated into the university.University status was achieved in 1992, and the new name of Birmingham City University was adopted in 2007, reflecting the university’s commitment to, and pride in, its home city (abbrev. as BCU; and previously Birmingham Polytechnic and the University of Central England in Birmingham)
Location and Transport:
Birmingham City University is having main campus in Eastside, in Birmingham city centre. Other locations are the School of Art, School of Jewellery and (until 2017) Birmingham Conservatoire elsewhere in the city centre; the City South Campus in Edgbaston, home to the University’s health courses and, from 2017, Education, Sport and Life Sciences; and the City North Campus in Perry Barr, home to the School of Education (until 2017).
Birmingham is located at the heart of the UK's road and rail networks. There are three city centre railway stations, and the city is at the centre of Britain's national coach network, connecting directly with 500 destinations.
Locally, a network of bus and train services provides easy access around the city, including all of the university’s sites. This is supported by the Midland Metro, a tram/light rail system, which has improved access to the city even further, with more expansion planned.
