Overview

Birmingham is a leading global university, recognised by our peers as being both a dominant intellectual force and the destination of choice nationally and internationally. We have been challenging and developing great minds for more than a century. Characterised by a tradition of innovation, research at the University has broken new ground, pushed forward the boundaries of knowledge and made an impact on people?s lives. We continue this tradition today and have ambitions for a future that will embed our work and recognition of the Birmingham name on the international stage. We want our students to profit from Birmingham?s culture of learning and its ethos of critical enquiry, debate and self-motivation. We encourage and support them to engage with complex, challenging 21st-century issues. Universities are never complete. They develop as new challenges and opportunities occur. At Birmingham we innovate, we push the frontiers of understanding; we ask new research questions, we turn theory through experiment into practice ? because that?s what great universities do.

Mission Statement

Our mission derives from our foundation as the first English civic university, established in England`s second city. We are a university of national eminence and global reach, and we cherish our civic roots. We have a fundamental commitment to rigorous academic curiosity, forming ideas through the crucible of debate and opening them to challenge. This ensures that we produce exceptional graduates and impactful research, thereby making a significant contribution to society and the global economy.
