"University of Birmingham is ideal for an international student wishing to study engineering, especially chemical engineering."
Why did you apply to the University of Birmingham?
University of Birmingham is ideal for an international student wishing to study engineering, especially chemical engineering. It is ranked among the top universities in the UK and I can say that the University of Birmingham is an internationally recognised, prestigious university.
What is your favourite part of the course so far?
The approachability of lecturers and provision of support for those who work hard and want to study.
What do you like to do when you are not in lectures or studying?
I like to organise stuff for my extracurricular activities because at the University of Birmingham, other than the coursework related things, there are unlimited opportunities for all students.

What are your plans for after you finish your course?
Get a place in the British Petroleum and develop my understanding further by applying my knowledge in real industry.
