Just two minutes from Moor Street station and the Bullring, Matthew Boulton College is an impressive eight storey building in the heart of Birmingham’s Learning Quarter. A short stroll away is the new Eastside development with Millennium Point and Digbeth’s many quirky shops and cafes. The regular vintage fairs, gigs at the Custard Factory and art exhibitions prove popular with students.
As well as easy access to Birmingham’s many eateries, Matthew Boulton also hosts two food and drink venues: the Glasshouse, a stylish coffee shop, and a canteen serving a wide range of comfort food at great prices. Students enjoy hanging out in the communal areas with a coffee and enjoying the great views of Birmingham.
In terms of facilities, Matthew Boulton is second to none. From a podiatry clinic to a graphic design studio and print shop, from a dentistry suite to Samsung’s digital technology lab, the facilities provide a first class learning environment. And the range of courses is just as wide as the range of facilities with everything from GCSEs and A Levels to Foundation Degrees and beyond.
Matthew Boulton 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.
