B-Start up Bootcamp - Where enterprise meets action!

Winning team 'Ulyssses'!
The B-Start Up Bootcamp was held from 18th to 20th February and it was a grand success! The 71 students who attended had a wonderful time working on their enterprising solutions to solve problems like the increased obesity in Tonga, making a useful resource out of a square mile in the desert and increasing student engagement in universities.
Runners up - 'Just deserts'!

The winner is the team 'Ulysses' who presented their fantastic idea for an app to connect international students to UK universities and vice -versa. The runners up had a great idea to use human waste to fertilize deserts to make it viable crop land and to fight desertification.

The top 5 reasons the PR team is enterprising

We, the PR team, are always talking about being enterprising. We publish enterprising stories to inspire and to let the world know that here at Birmingham, we're all about applying our brains to make things happen...make a change. But how do we know are we enterprising?

It's that time of year when you are writing applications and making speculative letters to gain experience or a job. Remember, employers don't just want to hear about your grades, skills and what you have done. They want know YOU as a person. What do your actions say about you? This is where potential employers find out about your attitude and aptitude. Here's 5 top reasons to prove that we are change-makers and that we practice what we preach!

UoB Law students making a difference in our community through CEPLER

Set up in 2008, the CEPLER’s Pro Bono Group at the University of Birmingham's Law School, has significantly grown with the input of staff and students. They operate on the basis of two main aims: Creating a service giving legal advice and aid to the wider community; Creating an opportunity for students to experience ‘real-life’ law practices and extend their learning. I spoke with Linden Thomas, a practising solicitor and staff member leading on the project.
