Three Birmingham Students Smiling

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

UWTSD Birmingham is located in Sparkhill and Birmingham's City Centre, both vibrant neighbourhoods that have been established to provide opportunities for people of all backgrounds to study a higher education programme in their community. 

About the Centre

The Sparkhill Centre opened in March 2018 and the Quay Place Centre in January 2020, both having developed into thriving learning centres 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 students in developing their potential to the full.

Key Features

  • Flexible full-time University courses
  • 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 courses 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.

We are an employment-focused university, dedicated to ensuring our students from diverse backgrounds develop the academic knowledge and practical skills to thrive. All of our courses are 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 required to sit an admission test and are interviewed. Any offer to study on a course offers are based on an individual’s intention, motivation and readiness to work hard to succeed in their studies.

BREXIT Information

How will BREXIT Impact Students?

EU Students

Brexit is the term used to describe the United Kingdom's departure from the European Union. The impact of Brexit for you will depend on when you'll be arriving in the UK (including if you are already in the UK).  

The UK left the European Union (EU) at 11pm (GMT) on 31 January 2020 but left on the basis of an agreement made between the UK and the EU known as the Withdrawal Agreement

We realise you may have questions about how BREXIT could affect your status/studies in the UK, so check out the useful links below for all the latest information;

If you're visiting home over the holidays and are concerned about how BREXIT might affect your travel back to the UK, or want to know if you're still eligible for loans and grants, check out these FAQs
