Postgraduate study at the University of Birmingham

S1 The best part about being a Birmingham
postgraduate is the incredible level of support offered by the graduate school. S2 I think there’s a wide variety of people
and they make the experience what it is. S3 The best part about being a Birmingham
postgraduate is the beautiful campus it has and the great many facilities it offers. S4 Getting the opportunity to develop in your
specific area, your field of study. S2 And you get to use quite a lot of equipment
that as undergraduates you get to see but don’t get to play with. S5 The best part of being at postgraduate
is actually you can focus on something you are really interested in and passionate about. S1 The College of Engineering and Physical
Sciences has so many facilities I can use to do experiments using different techniques. S4 The most interesting thing I’ve found
as part of my course is working in a multi-disciplinary team. S5 I actually found I can help the companies,
especially manufacturing companies, improve their supply chain performance. S6 It’s relevant to everyday life, it’s
nice to be able to learn things in the lecture and then actually see them work in practice. S4 My usual Monday would start … S3 …with a lecture in the morning … S6 … drinking lots of coffee… S1 … answer emails … S2 … analysing data or writing up. S3 Meet some friends at the University Centre
… S1 .. maybe have a meeting or two with my
supervisors … S5 … and then do some work in the evening
as well. S1 I’d like to continue doing research,
either as a Research Fellow or working in the Research & Development department of the
company that’s sponsoring me. S4 I plan to be working for a national Government
organisation or in a hospital or in a specific health field. S6 In five year’s time I hope to be a Barrister,
practising in Birmingham and hopefully specialising in medical law or clinical negligence. S2 My name’s Benjy Curzon-Jones and I’m
studying a PhD in Falls and Ageing Research. S5 My name’s Nan Li, I’m doing a PhD study
in the Mechanical Engineering department. S3 My name is Anja Benedikt, I study an MA
in European Studies in the College of Social Sciences. S4 My name is Olatande Fakoya and I’m studying
an Occupational Health MSc. My college is Medical and Dental Sciences S6 My name’s Almas Ben-Aribia, I’m studying
a Graduate Diploma in Law in the College of Arts and Law. S1 My name is Fabricio Marques and I’m a
Doctoral Researcher in the School of Chemical Engineering at the University of Birmingham.
