Birmingham School of Jewellery
The School of Jewellery is the largest In Europe, internationally renowned for its specialist courses led by tutors with extensive industry experience. Since 1890, our multi-award-winning building has been in the heart of Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter, where an estimated 40 per cent of British Jewellery is made today. The extraordinary listed venetian Gothic Building houses a wonderful complex of traditional style workshops, teaching, and exhibition accommodation, providing a fitting home for a stunning modern art school. This inspirational setting is the perfect place to undertake jewellery related design courses. We cover all aspects of jewellery, silversmithing, horology and gemmology, using a variety of precious and non-precious metals, gems and experimental materials. Our students also benefit from an enviable range of cutting-edge equipment and technology which is used in industry today. Our close working connections with some of the industry’s top brands, companies and independent artists in the Jewellery Quarter and wider industry offers students the opportunity to develop their networks helping them gain employment once they graduate. We are extremely proud of the school’s reputation and the high number of its graduates who are currently working at all levels of the trade, locally, nationally, and internationally. The School of Jewellery is about people and how they create objects of wonder. It’s why we deliver a rich mix of world leading learning through making and doing.
