History of University College Birmingham

Here are some of the highlights:

  • The origins of our University can be traced back to the late nineteenth century with the foundation of a Municipal Technical School offering cookery and household science courses.
  • Operating from a number of sites across the city, archives record the establishment of a cookery room in 1916 and domestic cookery classes in 1918.
  • In 1927 the name of the school changed to the Central Technical College
  • By the 1950's the college had been renamed the College of Food and Technology and a department of Bakery and Domestic Science had been established.
  • 1957 saw the name change once again to the College of Bakery, Catering, Domestic Science and Associated Studies.
  • 1958 saw another change to Birmingham College of Food and Domestic Arts which operated on a number of sites across the city until…
  • 1968 when HRH the Duke of Edinburgh opened our site on Summer Row.
  • In response to a growing diversification of programmes, the college was renamed Birmingham College of Food, Tourism and Creative Studies in the 1980's.
  • 2007 saw the Privy Council approve the award of taught degree awarding powers and approved our final name change to University College Birmingham.
  • In 2012 we received an overall Grade 1 Outstanding for our Further Education provision.
  • Towards the end of 2012 we were granted full University Title by the Privy Council, sealing the university’s position as a first-class higher education institution and offering greater clarity to employers and students alike.
