One of the key aims of The Birmingham Project is for students from all different course disciplines to meet and share their ideas and different ways of thinking. The project is a great way to meet new people, make friends and develop your networking skills outside of your usual social circles.
The Birmingham Project will be recognised as a pass/fail module on your University transcript and you will receive a participation and/or winner certificate. This recognition will be particularly useful as a way of evidencing your participation in an extra-curricular activity when you are applying for internships and jobs. N.B. The Birmingham Project is non credit bearing, which means it will not count towards degree credit.
- Personal Skills Award (PSA)
You can gain 70 PSA points for completing The Birmingham Project. The Personal Skills Award is the University of Birmingham's recognised employability programme for undergraduate students. It enables you to develop, recognise and articulate your skills in preparation for real-world recruitment processes. Visit the PSA website to find out more.
N.B. PSA points can only be claimed by students completing The Birmingham Project from 2017/18 onwards.
