University of Birmingham

 

The University grew out of the radical vision of our first Chancellor, Joseph Chamberlain.

 
 

Founded in 1900, Birmingham represented a new model for higher education.

This was England’s first civic university, where students from all religions and backgrounds were accepted on an equal basis.

The University of Birmingham was established by Queen Victoria by Royal Charter in 1900 and was the UK’s first civic or ‘redbrick’ university.

The first phase of building work on the campus was completed in 1909 under the auspices of the esteemed architect Sir Aston Webb.

We celebrated the centenary of those buildings in July 2009.
