We’ve come to the end of our Q&A session today. Thank you very much to everyone who took part – I hope we managed to be of assistance and provide the information that you were looking for.
We will hold many more of these virtual open day events over the coming months so please check www.pg.bham.ac.uk now and again to see what we’ve got lined up for the future. If you’d like to visit our campus (in real life!), our next Postgraduate Open Day will take place on Wednesday 22 November 2017. We also run bespoke campus tours throughout term time and Cafés at which you can meet current students.
I am starting the course in August and just wondered if a provisional timetable will be sent to us or we had to contact somebody?
You should have received a welcome email and further details will follow in the next 3 weeks – ensure that you check your email regularly and please contact the admin team if you have not received any correspondence / need to update contact details.
Many thanks and we look forward to meeting you on your first day.

The timetable for the first year is available to see on our website.
We advise that you need to be available 8-6 pm weekdays (due to placements and occasional early/late teaching).
I hope that helps.
