Birmingham Metropolitan College: Podiatry course

Podiatry students 

As part of a local arrangement with Birmingham Metropolitan College, students studying on the Podiatry course may register for Library membership.

How do I join the library?

Library staff will check that your name appears on the list of students currently enrolled on the Podiatry course. You will need to complete a registration form (also available from the Library) and bring this, your college ID card and two passport sized photographs with you. Your visitor card will be ready for you to collect within one week. This card needs to be shown to Reception staff to gain access to the building and for borrowing books.

Is there a charge?

No, membership of the Library forms part of the agreement between Aston University and Birmingham Metropolitan College.

Can I borrow books?

Yes, you may borrow a total of 6 books at any one time. (You will not be able to borrow short loan books or journals.) Fines will be charged on overdue books.
When can I use the Library? Providing you have your visitor card on you, you can use the Library from 09:00 - 21:00 Monday to Friday, up until 18:00 on Saturdays and up until 17:00 on Sundays. This is the case even when the Library is open to Aston University staff and students for extended opening hours.

Can I access electronic resources?

A limited selection can be accessed from a Library loanable laptop. 

How long does my membership last?

Until 31 July (end of the current academic year). This is renewable annually.
