The University of Birmingham is a renowned and long-lasting provider of courses on SLD/PMLD from undergraduate to postgraduate level and the Severe, Profound and Multiple Learning Disabilities (SPMLD) programme is one of the leading programmes in this specific field both nationally and internationally.
