The University of Birmingham is a global institution that has been challenging and developing great minds for more than a century. Founded in 1900, Birmingham was England’s first civic university. It represented a new model for higher education where students from all religions and backgrounds were accepted on an equal basis. A spirit of innovation continues throughout our work today in pioneering research, partnerships, and teaching. We have grown into one of the largest universities in the UK, with over 7,000 staff and 34,000 students, covering a comprehensive range of disciplines.
"The GTEA application aligns with our growing international reach and ambition to secure our long-term future in the top 100 universities in the world…. The GTEA entry was both timely and appropriate and we are delighted to be on the shortlist."
