University of Birmingham

The Fulbright University of Birmingham Scholarship Award covers the first year of any master's or doctoral degree programme offered by the University.

The University of Birmingham: the global university at the heart of an ambitious city. Persuasive, persistent and bold, Birmingham encourages and empowers people to turn ingenuity into reality and make important things happen.

Birmingham has been challenging and developing great minds for more than a century. It was established by Queen Victoria by Royal Charter in 1900 and was England’s first ‘civic’ and ‘redbrick’ university, where students from all religions and backgrounds were accepted on an equal basis. The University is a founding member of the Russell Group and the National Union of Students

Characterised by a tradition of innovation, research at the University has broken new ground, pushed forward the boundaries of knowledge and made an impact on people’s lives. Birmingham continues this tradition today and has ambitions for a future that will continue to embed our work and recognition on the international stage.

We currently have many American students studying on a range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses across our five academic Colleges. Watch our USA student video and learn more about their experiences.
