BCUSU's Big Welcome
kicks-off in:


BCUSU have put together activities and nights out to help you settle in to university life during your first two weeks. We’ve been working our little socks off to get the programme ready for you, but we’re still confirming some last minute details, so keep checking back to see the full programme as we’ll be adding stuff to it on a daily basis.

To ensure you keep up to date with all our news, both during your first few weeks and throughout your time here at BCU, make sure you opt in to receive all our news when you enrol. We really will make sure you have the best student experience possible!
