Welcome message

I am delighted to welcome you to the MSc Accounting and Finance course. We are really looking forward to welcoming you and helping you to settle into the department, your course and your new environment. Your course is located in the Faculty of Business, Law and Social Sciences.

Induction is a really important part of your first steps at University. We want you to feel part of our community, get to know the course team and make friends with others on your course. Please make sure that you get involved with all the activities that will take place during Welcome Week and in the following weeks and months on your course.

As soon as you enrol you will be able to access our virtual learning environment, Moodle. Please do log onto this and take part in the activities that are there to help you get off to a flying start on your course and get to know your course colleagues before you arrive on campus. We’re all very friendly and you’ll soon settle in very quickly. Remember, everyone is in the same boat and there are lots of people available to support you!

Your Personal Tutor is a key person to get to know in the first few weeks, as they can help with any queries, worries or concerns. Their role is to offer academic advice and guidance throughout your time at university, so you will want to get to know them quickly.

Finally, I’d like to wish you the best of luck for the start of your course. You are now a part of the Accountancy, Finance and Economics Department and academic community and we look forward to working in partnership with you to help you succeed.

Welcome message

I am delighted to welcome you to the MSc International Sport Management course. We are really looking forward to welcoming you and helping you to settle into the department, your course and your new environment. Your course is located in the Faculty of Business, Law and Social Sciences.

Induction is a really important part of your first steps at University. We want you to feel part of our community, get to know the course team and make friends with others on your course. Please make sure that you get involved with all the activities that will take place during Welcome Week and in the following weeks and months on your course.

As soon as you enrol you will be able to access our virtual learning environment, Moodle. Please do log onto this and take part in the activities that are there to help you get off to a flying start on your course and get to know your course colleagues before you arrive on campus. We’re all very friendly and you’ll soon settle in very quickly. Remember, everyone is in the same boat and there are lots of people available to support you!

Your Personal Tutor is a key person to get to know in the first few weeks, as they can help with any queries, worries or concerns. Their role is to offer academic advice and guidance throughout your time at university, so you will want to get to know them quickly.

Finally, I’d like to wish you the best of luck for the start of your course. You are now a part of the Marketing and Leisure Economies Department and academic community and we look forward to working in partnership with you to help you succeed.

Your research degree programme will be supported by a number of people and departments across the University.

As a postgraduate research degree student at Birmingham City University, you will be a student of the Faculty in which your research study is focused, and your supervisory team is the primary point of contact for all academic issues. Academic and progression processes will be overseen and authorised by the Faculty Research Degrees and Environment Committee (FRDEC).

You will also be a member of the University’s Doctoral Research College (DRC). The DRC is an ‘umbrella’ team whose main focus is to administer, co-ordinate and oversee the full life cycle of the University’s research community of postgraduate research students. DRC staff work in partnership with Faculty-based staff (as well as the University’s other professional service providers) and are embedded within each faculty.

These pages provide greater detail and also means of contacting the Doctoral Research College staff who are here to help at all stages of your research degree journey.

Welcome message – from the Director of Research Excellence

Welcome to Birmingham City University and the start of your life as a postgraduate research student, a valued member of our growing research community. We recognise fully the commitment that you have made by choosing to study with us for a research degree, and we understand the support that you will need from our academic staff in faculties, our wider research community and our professional services teams to enable your success.

At Birmingham City University, we are committed to distinctive, original and rigorous research which discovers new knowledge and which delivers real-world benefits to society. Through your research and advanced practice you will discover new insights and know-how. By sharing your research outcomes effectively through publication, conference attendance and public engagement, your research could deliver meaningful societal, cultural and economic benefits on a local, national or even global scale. Increasingly our research findings are being applied by others to address national and global challenges, through interdisciplinary research teams and international collaborations.

The last UK-wide exercise to measure research quality, REF2014, judged 60 per cent of our research across 11 subject areas to be of ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’ quality and our excellent Impact rating positioned us equal 55th in the Impact ranking table, demonstrating the real-world benefits of our research.

Our submission to REF2014 demonstrated how our research has been growing and included 40% more staff and 4 additional subjects compared to our submission to the previous RAE2008. Our submission to the upcoming 2021 Research Excellence framework, REF2021 will show a further increase in research coverage and staff engagement with research, increasing to 14 the subject submitted for assessment and doubling the number of research-active staff submitted, as more of our staff engage in impactful research of internationally recognised quality.

We are continuing our journey to improve still further the quality and impact of our research; to grow our research community and enhance our research culture. We summarise our research ambitions by the phrase “Better, Bigger, Broader, Bolder” and we look forward to the valuable contributions that you will make.

We hope that you will enjoy being a part of our vibrant and expanding research community and find your research degree programme to be a rewarding and challenging experience. In addition to gaining a much deeper understanding of your chosen subject area and discovering new knowledge, you will also develop a wide range of skills that will set you up for your professional life after your PhD.

Please take the time to read the information in these Welcome pages, and the links therein, as it will help you settle in to the University more efficiently. We wish you the very best of luck with your coming studies.

Director of Research Excellence

The Postgraduate Certificate in Research Practice

As you will be aware from your application and offer letter, all new research degree are expected to attend and complete the Postgraduate Certificate in Research Practice during your first year of the PhD or DBA programme (or during the second year of your EdD programme).

The course aims to:

  • Assist you in developing your individual research project through a structured programme
  • Prepare you to carry out academic work for your research degree
  • Introduce you to the research skills, practices and procedures that are essential for your postgraduate research study
  • Provide an opportunity for you to explore a range of theoretical and practical research issues and their application
  • Foster a supportive environment in which you can develop a specific area of research interest into a viable research proposal

The course serves to develop the wider research student community at Birmingham City University and enable participants to share any concerns that they may have and mutually support one another. It is important that you attend the programme both to gain the knowledge required to carry out your research degree, but also to make contacts with researchers in other faculties.

Successful completion of this programme is required in order to progress on the PhD, and attendance is compulsory for all new research students registered and will normally be studied during the first year of enrolment and completed as a precursor to the Progression Assessment Panel carried out towards the end of Year 1.
