Studying built environment in Birmingham

There are lots of opportunities for people working in construction, property and planning in Birmingham. The city is home to huge regeneration which covers every aspect of the built environment, including improving transport links, developing new residential communities and supporting the diverse economy. Birmingham also has a history of iconic buildings, such as Selfridges, the Rotunda, and the Library of Birmingham.

All of this makes the city a great place to study the built environment.

Two first year students, Ryan Parker and Jonathan Thompson - both studying Construction Management, created a vlog exploring some of the architecture (and building sites) that they discovered in their first few months in Birmingham.

In the vlog, they interview course tutors and fellow students about studying in Birmingham and the various opportunities they had in their first year here, including site visits, taking part in international competitions, working on a real-life project for a local housing association and learning from visiting industry speakers.
