After completing a gap year placement with one of the Big Four accountancy firms, I joined the University of Birmingham to study BSc Economics. I was very fortunate to have had this experience before starting my degree and it made me more aware of the importance of gaining a good degree from a highly regarded University.
The University of Birmingham offers a comprehensive degree outline and the modules offered are interesting and challenging – they range from core economic modules to more applied ones such as environmental and health economics.
The support and advice received from personal tutors and lecturers is invaluable and they made my experience at the university more enjoyable. Thinking back about the last 3 years I have come out of university as an independent and confident person with a positive outlook to life.
