The University of Birmingham has been challenging and developing great minds for more than a century, and this year our 300,000th graduate will complete their degree. To celebrate the occasion, the Development, Alumni and Business Engagement Department requested nominations of inspirational current students. Due to the impressive submissions, a total of twelve students were selected to best represent the spirit of the University in 2015. The School of Education is delighted that Hannah Bevington, a final year Education student was chosen as one of three representatives from the College of Social Sciences.
