    The business school itself is a bit out the way from the other buildings, but i dont think their is a lecture room there, ive only ever been there for classes.

    The lecturers ive had from the business school (mostly from A+F course) have all been really good though.

    There is one lecture theatre in the Business School - G12

    Its a rather large LT and so only used for big compulsory modules or guest speakers where they open it up to staff and other students from the Business School (such as George Davies - creator of Per Una and George @ Asda).

    Hard to know exactly because all the lectures i had with the a+f course was combined with people from my course. Although i would say there was 80-100. But as more than one course takes each module, you'll likely have more than that in some of your lectures, so maybe 120.

    TBH ive not really used it so dont know too much about it. And my degree is part of the Economics programme, so i dont really know what A+F offer their students.

    However, PWC are heavily involved at Birmingham, they sponsor the Economics society. And this year there have been a few career fairs where a few of the big accounting firms have been in along with lots of the smaller ones. Theres loads on offer if you look out for it.

    All of the Big Four are on campus a lot - Deloitte, PwC, KPMG and Ernst & Young. Either through sponsorship of societies and sports team etc but also through campus recruitment events and competitions etc.

    Just keep your eyes out for them.

    B4 recruit good grads from all over the place from ex polys right to Oxbridge.

    That they come to Bham is no big deal AT all, pretty de rigeour and expected.

    The business school looks good but it is what is inside that counts
