Located in Edgbaston, Birmingham, United Kingdom, the University of Birmingham is a public research university granted a royal charter in 1900 by Queen Victoria. A founding member of Universitas 21 and the Russell Group, it succeeded the Queen's College, also of Birmingham, and Mason Science College, founded in 1825 and 1875, respectively.
Out of the 169 academic institutions in the U.K., the University of Birmingham places fourth in terms of the size of undergraduate and graduate populations. The students are enrolled in the university's four campuses, the Mason College campus, Queen's College campus, Selly Oak campus, and the Edgbaston campus. The campuses offer a good number of subjects through five colleges: Social Sciences, Arts and Law, Medical and Dental Sciences, Engineering and Physical Sciences, and the Life and Environmental Sciences college.
The five colleges provide a variety of schools and research centers to broaden their inquiry and experience. The most notable ones include the oldest business school in England, the Birmingham Business School; the Centre of Excellence for Research in Computational Intelligence and Applications; the University of Birmingham Medical School; the Shakespeare Institute; and the Institute of Local Government Studies, among others.
In addition to regular PhDs and standard research, Birmingham University offers a split-site PhD in Computer Science through its department of Engineering and Physical Sciences. Among its outstanding contributions to the sciences is the Birmingham Solar Oscillations Network whose network of six remote solar observatories closely monitor the field of low-degree solar oscillation modes. For undergraduates eager to get hands-on experience in astronomy, the university gives them the chance to do so with its own Astronomical Observatory.
Apart from innovative research facilities and cutting-edge methods of instruction, the University of Birmingham supports the students' need for extensive inquiry through nine site libraries. These include the Main Library, Cadbury Research Library, Shakespeare Institute Library, the Barber Fine Art Library, Dental Library, Barber Music Library, Orchard Learning Resource Centre, Education Library, and the Barnes Library.
The Cadbury Research Library is notable for housing the university's collections of historic artifacts, rare books, archives, and a vast number of manuscripts. The massive collections include more than four million unique manuscripts and archives, rare incunabula, and more than 200,000 historically significant printed books. Some of the collections include those from notable figures in the history of the country, such as Anthony Eden, David Lodge, and the Chamberlains—Austen, Joseph, and Neville.
