Access to Success: Drop-in Day for mature students

The Schools and Colleges Liaison team at Birmingham City University does a lot of work with prospective mature students to help give them an idea of what student life may be like.

At Birmingham City University, mature students play an integral role in our institution and we're proud to have one of the highest proportions of students enrolling from Access to Higher Education courses among all UK universities.

Drop-in Days

Our Access to Success: Drop-in Days aim to support mature students on their journey towards higher education. Whether they are currently on an Access to Higher Education course or planning to go to university after a break from education, our Access to Success: Drop-in Days provide a wealth of information and activities including:

    • An introduction to Birmingham City University and the courses we offer
    • Advice about finance and the UCAS process
    • A tour of our facilities and campus
    • Refreshments will be provided

Events for 2015-16

Access to Success: Birmingham City University drop-in day

Our next Access event will now take place in Autumn 2016.

Campus: City Centre or City South

This event will be of interest to anyone currently studying on an Access to Higher Education course, as well as any other individuals who intend to go to university as a mature student.

As this is a drop-in session, visitors are welcome to attend at any point between the specified times. There will be advisers on hand to provide a wide range of information about higher education, from the courses offered by Birmingham City University to student finance and the UCAS process. There will be opportunities to see our facilities as part of a campus tour and refreshments will be provided.

Studying part-time at BCU enabled me to complete my degree while holding down a full-time job. The course was flexible which meant that I could fit it around my other commitments and the lecturers were always willing to help. I met some fantastic people while studying at the University and I’m still in touch with many of them today.

Support from staff has been fantastic - very much an open door policy. Without being patronising and chastising, they still encourage me to be pro-active and work things out for myself. Their advice has been invaluable. The Personal Development Department acts as a supportive back up for those struggling with academic writing. The lecturers are so knowledgeable and passionate. My placements have been incredibly varied and relevant. The content on the modules has been interesting and the library is amazing!
