About Us

The Faculty has a strong focus on the training of health and education professionals and we're growing our life sciences portfolio.

We have a proven record for graduate recruitment and our graduates are very successful in finding employment, with many taking jobs in the West Midlands.

Courses are taught by a range of experienced practitioners, many of whom still have links in the education and healthcare sectors.

Regional lead

We are the West Midlands regional provider for the pioneering education charity, Teach First and we work with Teaching Schools and School Alliances in the delivery of the School Direct programme.

Health, Education and Life Sciences

We are also the region’s leading provider of qualified staff for the NHS and social care professions.

Location

At the moment we are a dual campus faculty - with our healthcare courses based at the state-of-the-art, purpose-built Seacole building at City South Campus and our education courses based at the Atwood building at City North Campus. 

One campus from 2017

We are constantly investing in our estate and are currently in the process of spending £260 million on new learning facilities.

As part of these plans, the University's Education provision is due to join the rest of the Faculty of Health, Education and Life Sciences at our City South Campus in Edgbaston during the 2017/18 academic year.

Our new building at City South

We're building a state-of-the-art £41 million facility. Watch our fly-through video to see it.

This is the third phase of the University's project to move all teaching and learning to two campuses, City Centre and City South. By moving our Education provision, we will create a hub for the provision of public service contracts and professional development at City South Campus and improve the student experience with a stronger sense of community and more consistent support services and facilities.

More specific information about the Education facilities at City South will be available shortly.

Other expansion across the University

Phase I of the University's City Centre Campus expansion was completed in September 2013. The Parkside Building, which brings together arts, design and media provision, has since received the 'Sustainability Award' at the recent Insider West Midlands Property Awards.

Phase II, The Curzon Building, opened at the City Centre Campus in September 2015. It houses Birmingham City Business School, together with the Schools of English, Law and Social Sciences.
