…and welcome to BCUSU - your Students’ Union! We’re run entirely by students, for students, which means we’re very proud to say that we’re officially YOURS!

We realise that you may not have come into contact with a Students’ Union before, which is why we’re here to explain exactly what we are and what we do. You’re automatically a member as soon as you enroll at BCU, which means that you are entitled to use our amazing services below (and lots, lots more) for free! We’re entirely not-for-profit so every penny you spend in our shops, lounges and cafés, gets put straight back into providing brilliant services just for you.

One of these brilliant services happens as soon as you start at BCU, in the shape of our incredibly awesome Welcome Week. Formerly known as Freshers, our Welcome Week prepares you for life at Birmingham City University, whether that’s giving you handy hints and tips, helping you to settle in and make new friends, providing great nights out or just showing you what Birmingham, the University and us; your Students’ Union, can offer you. Read on for more information.

Get to know your Exec!

Your Exec Team have been elected to run your Students’ Union the way you want it to be run.

You’ll see them a lot during your time at BCU, so why not get to know them before you arrive, so you can recognise and chat to them when you’re here. They love to find out all about our students, and the different ways that we can help you.

Don’t be shy when you see them when you’re here, go up and talk to them about what exactly you want from your Students’ Union!
