✅ More About The University of Birmingham
The University of Birmingham is a public research university in Birmingham, England. It is located in Edgbaston. It was the first English civic or’red brick’ university to gain its own royal charter in 1900, as a successor to Queen’s College, Birmingham (founded in 1825 as the Birmingham School of Medicine and Surgery) and Mason Science College (founded in 1875 by Sir Josiah Mason). It is a founding member of the Russell Group of British research universities as well as Universitas 21, an international network of research universities.
The student population is the seventh largest in the UK, with 23,155 students and 12,605 postgraduates (out of 169). The university’s yearly income for 2020–21 was £774.1 million, with £168.3 million coming from research grants and contracts, and £738.5 million spent.
The university is home to the Barber Institute of Fine Arts, which houses works by Van Gogh, Picasso, and Monet, as well as the Shakespeare Institute, the Cadbury Research Library, which houses the Mingana Collection of Middle Eastern manuscripts, the Lapworth Museum of Geology, and the 100-meter Joseph Chamberlain Memorial Clock Tower, which is visible from many parts of the city. Former British Prime Ministers Neville Chamberlain and Stanley Baldwin, British musician Sir Edward Elgar, and eleven Nobel Laureates are among the university’s academics and alumni.
The university’s origins may be traced back to the Queen’s College, which was founded by William Sands Cox with the goal of developing a medical school that was entirely Christian, unlike the current London medical colleges. Further research indicated that the Birmingham Medical School had its origins in the medical education seminars of John Tomlinson, the first surgeon to the Birmingham Workhouse Infirmary and afterwards to the Birmingham General Hospital.
These classes, which took place in the winter of 1767–68, were the first of their kind in England and Wales. Medical apprentices at the General Hospital, which was founded in 1779, provided the first clinical training. The Birmingham Workhouse Infirmary’s medical school was founded in 1828, but Cox began teaching in December 1825. The Clinical Hospital in Birmingham received Queen Victoria’s patronage and was renamed “The Queen’s Hospital.” It was England’s first provincial teaching hospital. The medical college was renamed Queen’s College in 1843.
