Why did you choose International Heritage Management at the University of Birmingham?

“International Heritage Management is a degree that offers a holistic approach in the heritage sector, including conservations and law issues internationally. My choice was due to the reputation of the University and the program by itself and the corpus of the modules that included a variety of themes.”

What have you learnt from your programme?

“This programme made me think critically and do a proper research on the topics that I am really interested in. Also, it gave me the proper base to start a career in the heritage sector as I was a volunteer parallel to my studies and the different courses that we did made prepared me for a better understanding of heritage.”

What is life like as a student at the University of Birmingham?

“The University of Birmingham is the perfect environment for personal development. Many activities and workshops are taking place and personally I was very intrigued by this social way of life, which I followed as an events officer at the University. Of course, the student needs to be aware and curious all the time about the opportunities and activities and take advantage of the benefits that the University provides.”
