Advice to your 16 year old self

Can you remember what it was like when you started at Birmingham City University (although we may have been called something else back then)?

Whatever your experience, we'd like you to get a little nostalgic by thinking back to how your journey with us began and sharing your experiences with the next generation of applicants. We’d love it if you could offer advice to those students who could be the future of your industry. All we need is for you to answer just a few quick questions on our advice form.
