Jan Jalinek

Jan originally started a Digital Marketing course at another university but did not enjoy it, so he decided to take a look around at other courses. He discovered the two year fast-track BA (Hons) Digital Marketing course at Birmingham City University and decided to apply to through Clearing.

"I called the university to explain my situation and then I communicated via email with the international office, it was pretty simple."


"I really like it here, I wish I knew about this course before and how happy I would be at this University. The tutors are awesome and you can talk to them about anything. The Students' Union is interesting with plenty to offer. I also really like how there is a big focus on mental health."

It’s not just about learning

"Even though I missed Welcome Week, the other students and the tutors were very welcoming and showed me around.”

"My highlight of this year has been starting a course I really enjoy and meeting all the amazing people that are part of it. That’s what really matters to me.”

Intense, amazing, fast

"Don’t panic! Birmingham City University will help you! After being here a year, I have already decided to stay on and do a Masters. The Future Media MA sounds amazing.”
