"I’d definitely encourage other students to take up the challenge of a student live project.
It's a unique opportunity to grow your skill set, increase your knowledge and gain insights into the nature of the challenges you are likely to face when you enter the world of work.
My student live project was around building a supply chain for WMCA and SuperPrix. I had the freedom to express my ideas and opinions, my creativity, problem-solving skills and business acumen on a project with real-world implications. My supervisor and WMCA were incredibly supportive and always made sure I received the help I needed.
The experience equipped me with the skills and confidence needed to secure my dream job, including understanding of Public sector working contributing greatly to my personal development. I have now secured a role as a Development Graduate at Homes England."

"Being a part of this research was an amazing opportunity and working on this project was an uplifting experience. Through this project, I had the opportunity to use all my knowledge and skills gained during my studies at Birmingham City University and apply them for an important research on Leadership which highlighted on International Higher Education. This collaboration inspired me to continue more in this research, hence I decided to apply for my PhD program at BCU."
