Enrolling as a student with the University of Birmingham is the beginning of a valuable lifelong relationship.

Your connection with the University might have started as a student but there is a whole range of ways to stay involved with Birmingham after graduation; from simply giving us your feedback to helping current students define which speciality they would like to pursue once they graduate.
