At Birmingham, our aim is to make sure that success in your studies leads you on to a fulfilling career.

Careers Network has five college teams, each made up of careers consultants and careers advisers, an applications adviser, internship officer and careers information officer. Each college team is dedicated to bringing you information, advice and guidance tailored to your specific needs. You’ll find your team in locations within your college as well as at our central hub.
