BCU Postgraduate Suite Open for Business
Birmingham City Business School part of Birmingham City University has officially opened its brand new Postgraduate and Professional Teaching Suite.
The area on the 5th floor of Galton Building at the City North Campus in Perry Barr will act as a hub for the many students who are studying full or part-time for high-level Masters and Postgraduate Professional courses such as MBA, Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM), Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, (CIPD) and the Chartered Institute of Publication Relations (CIPR) Diploma.
Classrooms have been refurbished and a central area has been developed to allow students from the various courses taught at Birmingham City Business School to meet up and discuss projects and course work.
The official opening on Thursday 7 October was marked by the cutting of a ribbon by the University’s Vice-Chancellor, David Tidmarsh. He said: “The University is committed to putting its students first and the new postgraduate suite is an example of this.”
The area was designed by Birmingham- based architects D5 and the building work was carried out by GTH Construction, Solihull. Ian Saunders of D5 said: “We designed the postgraduate to be a vibrant centre of a busy part of the Business School. Our brief was to make it a casual area that would act as a hub for the postgraduate students. I and many of my colleagues at D5 are graduates of the Business School and our company has a long history of working with Birmingham City University.”
