The School of Government is proud of all of its students and alumni. Via the University's Development and Alumni Office, we hope to keep in touch with all of our alumni post-graduation, to learn of their many successes and to continue to share our research successes and campus developments.
The Birmingham Magazine, Alumni Newsletter and monthly email newsletter help to keep our alumni up to date with all of the latest University and alumni news while our wide-ranging alumni events programme will provide opportunities to catch up with old friends or make new professional contacts.
your.bham, our online alumni community, is another great way to keep in touch with the University and fellow classmates. On the site, alumni can contact friends, upload their latest news, view and post job opportunities and sign up for a Birmingham email forwarding address. They can also learn more about our exclusive benefits including support and advice, a wide range of discounts and membership of our many alumni groups. Registration is available via the alumni section.

What attracted me to this course in particular was fact that it balances theory with practice, which makes it quite unique compared to other courses which focus nearly exclusively on a theoretical approach.
The course was all around excellent. I particularly enjoyed the five-day training programme, opportunity to complete a work placement, and the module diversity. The degree has helped me make a major career change. Following the degree, I am now pursuing a career that I am passionate about in national security.
I really enjoyed studying under the real leaders in my field. The course was assessed in a varied way, without too much emphasis on exams, which I believe allowed me to strengthen skills which would be more useful professionally.
One of the really interesting things about this masters programme was that we were taught by internationally recognised academics, we also had experts and practitioners on the topics we were studying come in and actually lead our seminars; for instance, Jamie Shea (Deputy Assistant Secretary for Emerging Security Challenges) from NATO.
