With around 24,000 students from 80 countries, Birmingham City University is a large and diverse place to study. We put students at the heart of everything we do, giving them the best opportunities for future success.

Birmingham City University in the UK traces its roots back more than 175 years. It grew out of five individual colleges which came together to form one institution and today, it has more than 26,000 students from 100 countries studying on its courses.

Birmingham City University (BCU) unveiled the newest chapter in its history in 2020 when it opened the doors of its UAE branch campus in Ras Al Khaimah. The campus has been established under licence by the RAKEZ authority. In the first year, students at BCU UAE will study on a range of eight different top-up courses. From September 2021, a full suite of courses will become available.

The mission of the University is rooted in its desire to support individual personal transformation for its students –and this will be reflected in the quality of education for students who enroll at BCU UAE, just as it is for those students who enrol in the UK.

The University has an enviable reputation for providing quality, practice-based education in a professional and friendly environment, and this will translate to the UAE campus.

Our staff and student communities are defined by our core values, which outline who we are as a University and how we will work with each other. Our core values are excellence, people focused, partnership working, fairness, and integrity.

Thinking of studying with BCU in the UAE?

Taking a Higher Education course is a big investment in your future, and you will want to be sure that you are making the right choice when it comes to the degree you will study and the university you study with. So, here are our top reasons to choose Birmingham City University UAE campus.


The qualifications awarded by BCU, whether in the UK or the UAE, have equal merit and standing, which means BCU UAE students can be assured of the University’s commitment to their success during and after their studies.


BCU has degree awarding powers recognised by the Office for Students in the UK and all BCU degrees, including those delivered in the UAE, comply with Quality Assurance Agency guidelines and align with the UK Qualifications Framework. Students who graduate from BCU UAE can be assured that their certificates will be issued in the UK and internationally recognised.


Having a degree makes graduates more attractive to employers, allowing access to higher salaries and greater choice of opportunities. BCU works hard to ensure its graduates are acquiring the skills employers want.


Students who want to start their own businesses will be given help and support to do this –with entrepreneurial skills taught and nurtured, and support for visa applications too.


BCU in the UK has a diverse student population, and BCU UAE will also attractstudents from across the world. This allows our students the opportunity to make new friends and form connections with a wide range of people from different backgrounds
