Birmingham to host national programme for STEM subjects

Mon 5th Jan, 2009

HEFCE has selected the University of Birmingham to host the national higher education programme for science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

The University of Birmingham will work with the current HEFCE-funded STEM demand-raising projects to develop the national programme, which will run from August 2009.  The national programme will aim to deliver a sustained increase in STEM graduates, and satisfy the need for higher-level skills in these subjects among employers.  See the University of Birmingham press release and further information on HEFCE's work with STEM subjects.
