Giving students real opportunities: Working with Willmott Dixon

Posted on: 20 April 2015

Birmingham City University has a great reputation for giving their students the chance to break out of the lecture theatre and develop their skills in real world situations.

In this case, their architecture students were able to get involved with the next stage of Birmingham City University's development project at Eastside. The placements were hosted by Willmott Dixon, the construction firm contracted by the University to complete the building.
