How will my participation in The Birmingham Project be recognised?


The Birmingham Project assessment is formed of two parts; a group video presentation (50%) and a self-evaluation (50%). The information resource created by the groups is not assessed.

The Birmingham Project is formally recognised as a pass/fail module on your University transcript; however, the project is non-credit bearing, which means it does not count towards degree credit.


All students who successfully complete The Birmingham Project will receive a digital participation certificate.

The Birmingham Award recognition

Students who successfully complete The Birmingham Project can gain recognition through The Birmingham Award. Information about The Birmingham Award and how activities are recognised can be found on the website

Skills and experience

The skills and experience learned during the project are demanded by global employers. Students will be able to enhance their CV and job applications using the experience and skills developed throughout the project. Participants will be able to talk about their experience at job interviews and evidence that they participated in this unique initiative using their official University transcript and The Birmingham Project participation certificate.


Winning groups will be awarded a prize by our external partners. Details of the prizes will be announced during the project week.
