Our Foundation Pathways are designed for international students who require a preparatory year prior to UK undergraduate study. The foundation programme is equivalent in learning to year 13 of the UK education system and provides students with a fully integrated experience; meaning that all of our students are taught by Birmingham academics and have full access to facilities in the University of Birmingham’s stunning Edgbaston campus. Foundation students are guaranteed a place on a University of Birmingham undergraduate programme if they meet the progression requirements.
The College of Engineering and Physical Sciences has a long and proud tradition of educating students from across the globe. We welcome scholars from over 200 countries who contribute to the strong international atmosphere that is a major feature of the college.
STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) subjects are critically important in the development of our future fuels, materials and machines, and the College plays a significant role in training the next generation of world-class engineers and scientists to solve our future challenges. We have strong links with major UK employers such as Rolls-Royce and Airbus, and our staff and students are at the forefront of research into a wide variety of areas, from working with particle physicists at the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland to using nanotechnology to develop microengines.
The Engineering and Physical Sciences Pathway will lead you towards an undergraduate degree in one of the following:
Electronic, Electrical and Systems Engineering
Metallurgy and Materials
