About BCU

In 1843, the Birmingham Society of Artists founded the Birmingham Government School of Design. Later, this evolved into Birmingham College of Art in 1884.  Over the years, the school evolved and acquired its university status in 1992 as the University of Central England in Birmingham. In 2007, the university's name was changed to Birmingham City University. With around 24,000 students from 80 countries, Birmingham City University is a large and diverse place to study. The University has an enviable reputation for providing quality, student-focused education in a professional and friendly environment. Their core values are Excellence, People focused, Partnership working and Fairness and integrity.
BCU is notable for the high standard of its campuses. The university invested around £270 million into the regional economy and supports thousands of jobs in the area. They are also investing over £340 million in our estate providing students with an enviable range of facilities. The Complete University Guide ranked the university as a top 30 UK university for spending on facilities in 2015. The university has dedicated open learning spaces, a 24/7 library, drama, media and radio studios with a range of break-out areas. Their state-of-the-art resources include a gallery, noise and vibration cells, a video production laboratory, a robotic laboratory, a huge isolation booth with sonic sound quality big enough to record drum kits, fantastic recording facilities, and a blue screen studio for chroma key work for film and music. Art and design students work from a core of workshops in the centre of the five-floor building, with studio space around them. There is also a ‘collision space’ where students and staff from different courses will see each other to pass the time of day, and exchange thoughts and ideas.

"Very reliable and efficient. Ms Tan Mei Pei helped me throughout the process and ensured that I had all the documents. Helped me prepare everything and submit my visa in a short amount of time. Would not have been able to do it all by myself in such a timeframe. Highly recommended"

Very grateful for everything & would recommend her services to anyone looking to study in Australia"

"The staff (Ms Tan) of AECC Global who guided me is very helpful and efficient. There is no delay in anything or any inconvenience. Her work was all up to date. AECC Global is a very good choice if you are considering studies abroad."

"I applied for multiple universities alone, and only required the help of AECC when applying to Deakin University. Honestly I wish I'd have found them earlier and got their assistance for my other applications. My representative - Mun Yeu, was super helpful and quick to respond. 12/10 would recommend anyone."
