Description:
Queen's College (), Somerset Road, Edgbaston, Birmingham, is an ecumenical theological college which, with the West Midlands Ministerial Training Course, forms the Centre for Ministerial Formation of the Queen's Foundation for Ecumenical Theological Education. It serves the Church of England, the Methodist Church and the United Reformed Church, and its courses thus have a strong ecumenical emphasis.

The Queen's Foundation itself consists of the Centre for Ministerial Formation, the Queen's Graduate and Research Centre, the Centre for Black Ministries and Leadership, and the Selly Oak Centre for Mission Studies (the successor to the Selly Oak Colleges).

The Queen's Foundation is associated with the University of Birmingham to which it is very near and for whose certificates, diplomas and degrees students read. The Queen's Graduate and Research Centre offers post-graduate study for the Master of Arts in applied theological study, and research facilities for the degrees of Master of Philosophy, Doctor of Theology and Doctor of Philosophy.

The residential block and lodge (1929-30), and chapel (1938-47) are by local architect Holland W. Hobbiss. The chapel was the first English ecclesiastical building with an altar built for the celebrant to face the congregation.Pevsner Architectural Guides - Birmingham, Andy Foster, 2005, ISBN 0-300-10731-5, p252 The college hosts the UKMT Mathematics Summer School each summer for approximately 40 students.
