About

The University of Birmingham has 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.

The University continues this tradition today and has ambitions for a future that will embed its work and recognition of the Birmingham name on the international stage.

Universities are never complete. They develop as new challenges and opportunities occur. At Birmingham the aim is to innovate and push the frontiers of understanding; it asks new research questions and turns theory through experiment into practice – because that’s what great universities do.
