The Birmingham Project is the University's most exciting opportunity exclusively for undergraduate first year students!
Working as part of an interdisciplinary team, students tackle a 'real-world' challenge by conducting research and creating innovative online resource. Participants gain invaluable skills and experience which will benefit their studies and set them apart when applying for internships and jobs.
The project was piloted in 2013/14 with 60 students taking part and due to its success, it was expanded to take 200-300 students in 2014/15 and 2015/16. In 2016/17 we saw our largest number of participants with 300-400 students taking part.
When does the project take place?
The Project takes place during the final two weeks of the summer term, after the exam period.The Birmingham Project 2019/20 will take place from 8 - 19 June 2020 (excluding weekends).Who can participate?The project is exclusively available to first year undergraduate students.
What does the project involve?
Working in a mixed discipline group (up to 10 students per group), students will tackle one of several 'real-world' challenges which are set by our Challenge Leads (usually a University of Birmingham Academic) and our external business partners. Examples of last year's challenge titles, based around five diverse themes.
