Bespoke Brochure Builder: Frequently Asked Questions

The bespoke prospectus builder enables you to order a personalised postgraduate taught course brochure, with information and guidance relevant to your course(s) of interest, nationality and mode of study.

Below are some frequently asked questions and guidance about the brochure builder.

How do I complete my prospectus order?

The brochure builder is split into three parts:

  1. You can search for a course via the search function, or find a course within the broad subject areas listed. Ticking these individual courses and pressing the ‘add programmes to brochure’ button will add them to your basket. You will see the total number of programmes under each broad subject area, then the number selected for each category.
  2. Step two allows you to add further areas of interest to your basket, such as accommodation or the city of Birmingham. Click ‘add information to brochure’ to add these to your basket.
  3. At step three we ask for your details to help to further personalise your brochure with relevant information. The information provided by you will be held by the University of Birmingham in accordance with the University's Data Protection Policy, which can be found on our website, and may be used for the University's marketing purposes.

My basket is full. What do I do?

  • In order to produce a manageable PDF for you to download, we have set a maximum number of 15 programmes you can select per brochure order.
  • When you try to select more than 15 programmes, a pop-up notification will display. Once you dismiss this notification, you can untick any of the programmes you have previously selected then continue.
  • You will be able to find your previous selections as the total number of programmes under each subject area or sub-category is listed in brackets next to the subject title.

I have not received my email with my download link

Your bespoke prospectus email should arrive in your inbox soon after you submit your request.

  • If it has not yet reached you, please check your junk mail as your SPAM filters may have redirected the email here.
  • If there is nothing in your junk mail, please wait until 24 hours have passed to ensure that the email is not simply delayed by your email service provider, or our sender.
  • If it has been more than 24 hours and you have not received your email, please contact us:

I cannot find the programme in which I am interested.

  • If you have found the Masters or Masters by Research programme on our course finder but it is not available on the selection form, we may not be able to produce this information for you at this time. Please refer to the information on the course page about the programme.
  • The bespoke prospectus is designed for taught-level programmes, so if you are looking for any doctoral research programmes, we would advise that instead you use our bespoke Doctoral Research prospectus builder.
  • You can also use the postgraduate research course search to search for any doctoral research opportunities.
