Due to COVID-19 restrictions you may find a bit less on here than normal. We’re looking forward to returning properly soon.

Birmingham Design BFFs scheme

BFF is a mentorship scheme where we match students with practising professionals to help them through this difficult time and help develop a meaningful relationship ahead of entering the working world.

Applications for the mentorship scheme are currently closed, we’ll be reopening them in June 2021.

If you work in design and have at least 2 years experience, we need you!

All we ask is you pledge a year of (occasional) support, in whatever form you decide works for you both – emails, Skype calls, portfolio reviews, a digital shoulder to cry on if needs be…

Our aim is to offer this to every graduating design student in our region. Applications for the mentoring scheme are currently closed, but you can register your interest by signing up to our emails.

We’re currently in conversation with a number of universities about the scheme. If you don’t spot yours on the list and want to take part, please get in touch.

Please note, we’re only able to support universities in the West Midlands.

  • Aston University
  • Coventry University
  • Birmingham City University
  • University of Birmingham
  • University of Warwick
  • University of Wolverhampton
