University College Birmingham

The history of University College Birmingham (UCB) can be traced back to 1957. It was formerly known as Birmingham Hotel and Tourism Management College. It is famous for its academic fields such as hotel management, culinary art management, tourism and project management. The college was officially upgraded to a university in 2012, and currently has more than 7,500 students, of which more than 1,400 international students come from more than 60 cities. UCB is an affiliated college of the University of Birmingham, and its high-quality teaching has been certified by QAA (Quality Assurance Agency) and OFSTED (Office for Standards in Education). UCB has a close cooperation with the University of Warwick. Many courses such as Event Management, Finance and Accounting and Marketing, etc., students will receive a degree awarded by the University of Warwick after completing the courses.

UCB is divided into three colleges, School of Business, Tourism and Creative Industries and School of Health, Sport and Food. All courses focus on cultivating high-level management knowledge and practical work skills, among which Hospitality and Tourism Management is the most famous. The school has set up two teaching restaurants, The Atrium and The Brasserie, and students studying cooking, catering or hospitality courses will have the opportunity to participate in the operation of the restaurant under the guidance of school lecturers and catering experts. These two restaurants are very popular in the local area. In addition to receiving the highest "five-star" praise from TripAdvisor, they were also rated as one of the ten best restaurants in Birmingham by the local newspaper "Birmingham Mail". UCB also offers top up courses, which attract many associate degree students to meet the needs of different students.
