Name: Aigerim Nurlanova
Nationality: Kazakh
Degree: BSc Economics (graduated 2011)

"I currently work for Dostyk Advisory consulting company in Kazakhstan and I am a business-consultant.

I could not come to Birmingham prior to sending my application to the University of Birmingham, however, the information on the website about the BSc Economics course was very complete and comprehensive

I also loved the pictures of campus, Big Joe, and the city of Birmingham. I was also really excited by the fact that the University of Birmingham has big beautiful campus, while the city centre is just 10 minutes away.

Birmingham is a very convenient, nice and clean city. It is easy to travel from Birmingham: there are links to major railways and the city airport is 20 minutes away from the city centre by train.

One of my fondest memories of studying in Birmingham is graduation ceremony in the Great Hall in the beautiful Aston Webb building. I will always remember the feeling of pride and happiness, feeling that you accomplished something big and important."

"The University of Birmingham is a respectable and well known university and I am very glad for my choice. It gave me a lot, but most importantly is the fact that it enables deep personal development..

I very much liked my degree because it was a mix of three disciplines, economics, accounting and business law, in that order, with a possibility to deepen my knowledge further in one.

I sure will recommend the University of Birmingham to others as it was a great experience for me and I am pretty confident that the future students find the University a great adulthood launchpad, with tough challenges and great rewards. "
