Universities are never complete. They develop as new challenges and opportunities occur. At Birmingham we innovate, we push the frontiers of understanding; we ask new research questions, we turn theory through experiment into practice – because that’s what great universities do.

From the Arts and Humanities to Engineering, Life Sciences to the Social Sciences, this is an institution that has, for many years, educated the brightest students and whose researchers have provided the breakthroughs to address the great challenges of our time.
As Vice-Chancellor, I am determined to build on our well-established position as a top 100 global university to become one of the very best international centres of education and research. We have a bold strategy to take us to 2020, based on a clear vision to invest in intellectual talent to make a difference to our city, our region, our nation, and our world.”

We will consider students who have taken A Level examinations and/or the International Baccalaureate (IB) for entrance to undergraduate programmes.
We will also consider students who have successfully completed a Bachelors (Honours) degree of at least two years duration.
Degrees must be from a Higher Education Commission recognised institution in Pakistan.
Students with a four year bachelor degree may be considered for entry to a postgraduate degree programme. Students with a bachelor degree of at least three years duration followed by a master’s degree of one or two years duration may also be considered for postgraduate entry.
A CGPA of 3.2/4 and above from a recognised Pakistani university is sufficient to meet our standard entry criteria. To be considered for postgraduate research courses we will usually require students to have completed a masters degree.
A 2 year degree followed by a 3 year LLB will count as a full Bachelor’s degree.
