Graduate+ is a Birmingham City University awards programme that turns high-calibre students into work-ready graduates. The three-year voluntary programme is available to students across all study and provides a unique platform where they can develop professional and personal skills with the main focus being upon employability. 

Students work towards an increased level of achievement throughout their time at Birmingham City University and the Graduate+ Scheme is awarded in levels of Bronze, Silver and Gold to establish and recognise their voluntary achievements. At the end of the Graduate+ programme, the students have developed practical skills and have demonstrated their professional skillset and academic talent – something that will benefit all sectors and all sized businesses.
