How to apply to study at BCUIC
Applying to study with us is easy! Simply submit your application online and our Admissions Team will contact you shortly after with a Conditional Offer.
Not sure where to start? Follow our handy step-by-step guide below.
Step 1: Choose your course
We offer 19 undergraduate pathways leading onto Bachelor's degrees at Birmingham City University and 9 postgraduate pathways leading onto Master's degrees at the University. Have a look through our programme pages to decide which course is the one for you.
Step 2: Check that you meet the entry requirements
You can check your academic eligibility by looking at our Admissions Requirements and selecting your country from the drop-down menu.
It may be the case that you are eligible to apply direct to the University, without the need to study a pathway programme with us. If you think your qualifications will enable you to do this, you can check here: www.bcu.ac.uk/international
Step 3: Submit your application
This is easily done by completing the online application form.
Step 4: Meet any conditions on your offer (if applicable)
Once our Admissions Team have processed your application, they will generate a Conditional Offer which will outline any outstanding conditions that need to be met. Once you meet all conditions, you will receive an Unconditional Offer.
Step 5: Pay your first semester’s fee
A deposit payment is required at this stage. (For a breakdown of fees per pathway programme, take a look at our fees page.)
Step 6: Receive your CAS (Confirmation of Acceptance of Studies)
You are nearing the final stage! Find out more about why a CAS is important by visiting this page on our website.
Step 7: Apply for your visa
Once your place has been confirmed and you have your CAS, you can apply for your student visa.
Step 8: Arrive
As soon as you have your visa, you should book your flight to Birmingham – and start your UK study adventure!
