Birmingham Design BFFs scheme

Returning for its second year, BFF is a mentorship scheme where we match graduating third-yeard students with practising professionals to help them through this difficult time and help develop a meaningful relationship ahead of entering the working world.

Many of our BD team already mentor and find it hugely rewarding, so now is your opportunity to give something back and hopefully enjoy the process.

Sign-up as a student

Sign-up as industry

If you work in design and have at least 3 years experience, we need you!

Sign up below to become a BFF – we’ll then match you to a design student from our region who will benefit from your support & advice.

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, so please sign up now.

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
