Ryan Dowell - Fresher 2018 in Civil Engineering “It was nerve-wracking getting up on stage at first, but once I started talking I got into the flow of it and it came quite naturally. Out of everything, I particularly enjoyed the teamwork challenge where we got to work together to solve a problem – that was really fun.” Malik - third year Mechanical Engineering student "Taking part in the Millennium Point Scholarship was so rewarding - from working with a mentor to presenting to a live audience. "I’d always planned on starting an apprenticeship after leaving school, but the scholarship opened up the door to studying at BCU. I’m lucky enough to go to a fantastic university, and, with my debt-free degree, I don’t have to worry about paying back a very large loan for the rest of my adult working life." Abbie - second year Civil Engineering student "Winning was a dream come true! Winning a sponsored undergraduate degree has allowed me to pursue my passion for engineering at Birmingham City University and I'm hoping to go on to have a rewarding career in the field. "I am very thankful to be given this once in a lifetime opportunity and highly recommend others take the chance too!” Sagal - first year Civil Engineering student “I can’t believe I won the scholarship. Having my tuition fees paid for is going to do a lot for me, and it a weight off my mind. "In the final, I spoke about how Civil Engineering can support the planet. I'm so excited to be able to pursue my passion at BCU and I hope I can go on to put the skills I learn to help cleaning the planet!" What's the scholarship all about? Young, digital, diverse and with the youngest population of any city in Europe, Birmingham is a place bustling with energy and opportunities - a vibrant urban centre to forge a career and make a name in. The birthplace of the industrial revolution, the city has brought us skateboards and roller skates, whistles, x-rays, vacuum cleaners, the mass spectrometer, the photocopier, and the microwave.
