Birmingham Learning Centre

Welcome to the University of Wales Trinity Saint David Birmingham Learning Centre.

UWTSD Birmingham, located on Stratford Road in the vibrant Sparkhill neighbourhood, has been established to provide opportunities for people of all backgrounds to study a higher education programme in their community. 

About the Centre

The Centre opened in March 2018, has developed into a thriving learning centre where Home and EU students are able to learn new skills for the workplace, develop their existing skills, build confidence and meet others with similar goals.  It is a friendly and lively environment where we aim to assist our student in developing their potential to the full.


Key features

  • Flexible full-time University Level 4 course
  • Continues throughout the year
  • Designed to enable you to balance family and work commitments alongside your studies
  • Bite-sized units and project-based
  • Assessment through assignments and no examination


Entry to the course

Entry to the course is based on individual merit and experience as well as a demonstrable commitment and motivation to study. All applicants are required to undertake a brief English language literacy test to assess reading and writing skills.

This Certificate of Higher Education is part of the University’s aim to widen access to higher education and, whilst it is desirable that applicants possess previous qualifications, the whole ethos of this provision is to provide the opportunity to those who would not normally qualify for entry to a degree programme.

All applicants are interviewed and any offers are based on an individual’s intention, motivation and readiness to work hard to succeed in their studies.


Career progression

Successful completion of the Programme of Study could enable high achieving students, to make progress onto level 5 and eventually level 6 of a relevant degree, for example, UWTSD’s BA Leadership and Management Skills for the Workplace

Students who successfully complete the Certificate of Higher Education could be able to use such credits to transfer to other relevant University programmes within the region - subject to a successful application to the relevant institution.
