The university has established a learning and research community spanning a wide range of subject areas, representing more than half the countries in the world.
Birmingham has one of the longest established and most successful distance learning programmes in the country, with a large selection of engaging online postgraduate degrees, delivering the same high-quality curriculum as on-campus courses.
Birmingham’s courses are instructed by an impressive team of academics and lecturers, supported by innovative teaching methods and some of the most advanced learning technologies. Postgraduate course content is delivered through the university’s specialised online learning platform, Canvas, with 24/7 technical support available. Alumni include eight Nobel Laureates and two prime ministers.
The university provides one of the widest selections of online taught and research postgraduate courses in the UK. The size of Birmingham’s postgraduate community also means that there is an impressive range of opportunities to engage in extra-curricular university life from a distance, whether taking part in online workshops and networking events, or joining one of the university’s many clubs and special interest societies.
There is a resident postgraduate officer to act as a representative for the university as a whole, and to help cultivate a global community of learning and collaboration.
The university has a huge network of industry partners and professional alumni, as well as a designated careers service to ensure that graduates have a successful transition to their emerging careers.
