The best advice on being a postgraduate always comes from those who have experienced it for themselves. Our current students and alumni provide an informal support network for prospective students via our postgraduate platform.
You can ask questions to experienced postgraduates who have previously studied or are currently studying at the University of Birmingham, and they will offer help and advice from a student perspective.
Our network comes from the UK, Europe and international countries, and ranges from recent graduates to alumni who have progressed in their career since graduating from Birmingham.
