#AskAnAlum - What's it like studying at Birmingham

What's it like studying at Birmingham?

To give you an idea of what it’s like to study in the Department of Political Science and International Studies we are running two live twitter chats for offer holders over the next two weeks. These chats will give you the opportunity to ask three of our most recent graduates about their experiences in the department and university life in general.

You can take part in the chats by following @birminghamalum on Twitter, or by using #AskAnAlum. If you would like to ask a question to a specific graduate, please just add their initials at the start of your tweet (i.e. to direct a question to 'Nancy Gray', your tweet would be: '@birminghamalum NG What was your favourite module?').

The chats will take place at the following times:

  • TBC

If you're unable to take part then you can still email a question beforehand to Teresa Hunt (t.j.hunt@bham.ac.uk) and we'll make sure that one of our graduates answers it.

Please see below for information about our graduates:
