The Birmingham Project offers a unique opportunity for first year undergraduate students; working with employers on a collaborative group project you will enhance your skills, discover your strengths and develop your confidence.
Working in a diverse group on a collaborative project, participants will work with industry experts and academics to explore key social and environmental issues to develop an innovative business solution to a real-world problem.
Participants are given the choice of one of six Themes to work on. Our Themes include: Celebrating Arts & Culture, Designing the Future of Transport, Developing Community, Exploring Technology & Innovation, Responsible Business, and Shaping Global Society.
Themes are designed to allow participants to focus on a topic they find interesting (participants do not have to work on a Theme that relates to their degree subject).
The project is assessed through a group presentation (50%) and a peer evaluation (50%). The assessment will determine whether participants receive a pass or fail for The Birmingham Project on their enhanced transcript.
N.B. The programme does not bear any credits and therefore will not contribute towards an individual’s degree classification.
