The briefing paper (2010?) “Birmingham City University’s Contribution to the Creative Economy” (.doc link), which appears to be a submission to government. Very impressive to see it all condensed in a few pages in this way. I’d say this could usefully be the basis of a student graphic design project, one that presents this document as a far more elegant publication.

On BIAD…

“the Birmingham Institute of Art and Design was judged to have a 100 per cent 4* research environment [by the 2008 national Research Assessment Exercise]”

I’m not entirely sure this is correct? The RAE2008 details for Birmingham City University, Art & Design show only 30% hitting a 4* grade…

Still a very excellent result to get 60% at 4* or 3*, but it’s hardly the 100% at 4* that’s claimed in the paper.
