Welcome message

Hello there,

I hope you are looking forward to joining us for Welcome Week! It should be a good chance to help you find your way around the school and campus and also to enable you to meet your fellow students and tutors. Please be sure to be there for everything, because it is the time that everything gets set up, and explained, and all the questions get answered, and you start to get to know the people with whom you will be spending the next three years. We have found in the past that students missing out on Welcome Week activities often take quite a while longer to get settled at University.

Other than a small pre-arrival activity (information will be available below), there isn’t any other specific preparation we ask, but if you get the chance to start reading any of the set books, then all the better. The other thing to try and do is see as much theatre as you can. But mainly relax, get yourself fit and healthy and ready to hit the ground running!

Welcome message

The course team would like to welcome you to Product & Furniture Design, a dynamic, stimulating, and exciting programme of study.

The next three years will provide you with the professional skills to enter the world of Product & Furniture Design.

The first year aims to build on varying levels of student pre-knowledge, through the introduction of practical skills, design principles and processes, materials and visual language and theory. A variety of project briefs introduce Scales of Manufacture from bespoke to mass production.

The second year aims to advance through professional practice and ‘live’ project-based learning, an appreciation of the diversity of activities involved within the area of Product & Furniture Design. The year also aims to develop advanced visual communication skills, presentation techniques and prototyping skills.

The third year aims to encourage individual direction, professional opportunities and establish study methods of a more self-directed nature, requiring the application of previously acquired knowledge and skills.

As a student studying on the Product & Furniture Design course, you have now become a member of a truly creative environment and academic community alongside students from a diverse range of creative subjects across the School, Faculty and University.

We hope that your time at Birmingham School of Architecture & Design will be enjoyable and productive!

Welcome message

We look forward to welcoming you at the School of Jewellery.

The first couple of weeks will cover lots of essential information and helpful advice.

It is important, especially in the first week, to be on time and to be prepared to be actively engaged.

The course works on the principle that you will learn while actively doing.

This is a practical course that includes class and workshop activity, but it also includes a substantial amount of online content and activity. Your first week will explain your course in more detail. Activities will be included that introduce you to the online platforms and other School facilities to help you feel comfortable using these for the rest of the year.

While new things can be overwhelming at times please be assured that all this information will be available to you at any time throughout your studies with us. Your lecturers and tutors will help with questions when they can and you can find further support with your Student Success Advisor.

Welcome message

Hello and Welcome!

We are very much looking forward to welcoming you all to your first week at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire. We have a lot of activities planned to help you find your way around the Conservatoire and University campus, where we can explain elements of your course to you, enable you to get to know your Head of Department and your other Course Tutors and, of course, provide arenas where you can meet other students and start to make friends. We’ll also be using the opportunity to get you to take some small tests so that we can begin to tailor our teaching to your very specific, individual needs — nothing too scary, promise — but very important!

Welcome message

Thank you for choosing to come and study Photography with us at Birmingham City University this coming academic year. The Photography Team are really looking forward to meeting you!

It’s an exciting time to be studying Photography because, as we are sure you’re aware, there is a huge demand for people who can create compelling content and tell interesting stories. The primary focus of all our students is to make work that differentiates them and that demonstrates their technical and creative abilities. We can’t wait to help you develop your practice and see the work you create with us over the next three years!

What should I bring on my first day?

We look forward to welcoming you on your first day!

You are required to have your ID card visible at all times when on campus, so if you have received yours before your first day, ensure you bring this with you. If you enrolled late you will need to collect one on campus during your first few days.

In order to complete your enrolment you will need the following:

UK/EU students

  • Passport or Photo ID
  • Original qualification documents if applicable (you will be emailed a list of the documents we need to see once you have completed your online enrolment)

International students

As well as the items listed above, you should also bring the following:

  • Passport
  • Visa
  • Qualification documents as listed in your CAS, for your visa application

What else? The rest is up to you, there is a shop, café, pub, computer access and water fountains on campus, but we recommend on your first day you bring the following:

  • Pen
  • Notepad
  • Reusable water bottle
  • Snack
  • Money
  • Face mask

And remember, the weather in Birmingham can be changeable!
