Sutton Coldfield Campus
Nestled among the many green spaces of Sutton Coldfield, our campus on Lichfield Road has a collegiate feel, similar to many of the top universities. The multi-million pound site is an elegant blend of the new and the old featuring a state-of-the art learning resource centre, sports hall and laboratory facilities.
Sutton also boasts the UK’s first Professional Services Academy, a joint venture with seven of the leading professional services organisations in Birmingham, which gives the students the opportunity to learn from the best. The Greater Birmingham Professional Services Academy is designed to help students gain real experience of working among the top firms in the city, with the relevant academic qualifications to make them impossible to turn down at job interviews.
But that’s not all. Where BMet leads, others follow and that has certainly been the case with the IBM Smarter Planet Collaboratory. Using cloud technology, students can access learning and resources from anywhere in the world so geography is no longer a barrier to learning. The Collaboratory is the first to be built by a UK college and includes a conference room in which users can deliver and record a presentation.
The Costa coffee shop, with integrated large touch screen computers, is the perfect hangout space to take in everything you’ve learnt and enjoy college life with your friends.
