Welcome to Birmingham.

For more than a century the University of Birmingham has thrived by being purposeful, pragmatic and pioneering; a trio of qualities which reinforce each other to strengthen our position as a leading global university. 

Our people are integral to this success and we look forward to you being part of this. 

Your line manager will organise an induction locally to help you settle into your new role and feel part of your wider team/School and the University. To ensure you have a successful start at the the University, we have checklists of suggested activities for different groups of staff to support a successful induction. We also recommend that you check your College New Starter page, where appropriate, for ones which may be more relevant to your specific area. 

Mandatory Training 

All members of staff need to complete the following mandatory training courses within their first few weeks at Birmingham:

Central Induction Event

You will shortly receive a diary request to a University-wide induction event. This is an excellent opportunity to meet with other new colleagues and learn about key University services and functions that can support you in your new role. Please confirm your attendance when you receive this diary request.
