Dear Ashleigh,                                          

W
elcome to our August issue of BeConnected - the email newsletter for alumni and former staff of Birmingham City University.  

In this issue, we're asking you to share your post-university experiences with us and your fellow alumni by telling us 'where you are now'. Submissions will be included in the next issue of the alumni magazine, Aspire. So whether you have climbed a mountain or written a book, recently married or got your dream job, or simply want to say ‘hello’ to your former class mates we’d love to hear from you.

This month we also bring you news of groundbreaking research, National Lottery funding for sports, and business start-up support schemes for enterprising graduates. 

Best wishes,
