What our students say...

Hear from Maggie, one of our international students

Student industrial placements:  A year at CERN - Kevin Sperin

"I chose to come to Birmingham to study Electronic, Electrical and Systems Engineering for three main reasons:
Firstly because out of all the universities I applied to and visited to study Electronic Engineering, it was at Birmingham I found the course content the most interesting, which came about at the open day where I spoke to a student and was drawn in by the Robot Project in the 2nd year which looked really exciting!
Secondly I felt my passion for the subject and individuality as a student was recognised, as at the Applicant Visit Days, I was surprised at how much time lecturers and staff spent to get to know me one to one as opposed to other universities.
Lastly, the facilities and standard at Birmingham were just on another level: really glad to be here!."
