    The new direct route to the University of Birmingham

    Sunita Eltom

    At Kaplan, we are delighted to announce an exciting new channel to our partnership with the University of Birmingham. We can now accept applications for direct entry to the first year of undergraduate study at the University.*

    With this route, qualified students can now apply via Kaplan International Pathways, and gain direct entry to undergraduate degrees at the University of Birmingham, starting in September 2017.

    This is in addition to our existing route, which allows students to study a Foundation Certificate at Kaplan International College London, then progress to the first year of a bachelor’s degree at Birmingham.

    A global university

    Ranked in the world's top 1% (QS World University Rankings 2016-17), the University of Birmingham is a truly international institution, with students from over 150 countries. Furthermore, it is a founding member of both the prestigious Russell Group and the global Universitas 21, reinforcing its status as a world-leading university.

    Kaplan will be working closely with students, parents, agents and sponsors as they make their applications to the University of Birmingham, for a degree that will transform students' lives and their career prospects.

    A great start in life

    The University of Birmingham was The Times and Sunday Times University of the Year for Graduate Employment for 2016, so its students can expect a great future. Known for its innovation, the University is an exciting place to study and make an impact on the world. Outside of the classroom, Birmingham is frequently ranked in the top 5 universities in the UK for sports, and the Edgbaston campus has been named one of the most beautiful campuses in Britain by the Telegraph newspaper.

    International city

    Birmingham is the second largest city in the United Kingdom and is named in the 2015 edition of Rough Guides as one of the top 10 cities to visit globally. Birmingham was also named Britain’s “foodiest town” by the New York Times thanks to its broad range of international cuisines.

    On top of this, Birmingham is well known for its variety of music and cultural festivals that take place throughout the year. There are plenty of sports and activities available to watch or take part in, and Birmingham was the first to be named ‘National City of Sport’ by the UK Sports Council.

    We are very proud to launch this new chapter in our partnership with one of the world’s elite universities and hope that you will be a part of it too. Please note that exceptions apply; to find out more, please see below or contact Kaplan.
