I joined the University of Birmingham during a time of great change and uncertainty. With ever more competition for places throughout the UK, especially for prestigious courses such as Economics, my offer from Birmingham was a great achievement in itself. Throughout my time at Birmingham I have developed not only an in depth knowledge of the subject but core skills allowing me to further broaden my horizons and career prospects.

The course itself is an avenue of exploration; I was able to tailor my course to not only cover the foundations of modern economics but also study new and experimental ideas emerging from the ever changing economic environment.

By joining the Business School you will become an active member of your degree and University as a whole. The pool of knowledge within the academic staff means no question will go unanswered. Throughout my time at Birmingham I have always felt that everyone is willing to go that extra mile to ensure you fulfil your potential.

Looking beyond your time at university a degree from Birmingham will ensure you have the best foundations on which to begin your career. No matter what your career aspirations the support from the department and staff will ensure you fulfil your potential and reach your goals. I am currently on an industrial placement at Morgan Stanley London with a bright future in financial services ahead of my degree.
