Welcome to the brand new student ideas platform from your Students’ Union

As we’re a student-led organisation, we always need you to tell us your ideas so that we can help to make your student experience at BCU, a better one.

Even though we’re all at home right now, your ideas don’t have to stop. You may have an idea to improve your online teaching experience, or it may be an idea for when we’re all back at University. You can submit an idea for any part of your student experience; from more microwaves on campus, to academic, support, from a new society, to more lockers etc. – literally anything that will improve your student experience.

How the process works:

  • Any student can submit an idea via this ideas platform
  • Once you submit an idea it will go live here for 14 days
  • During the 14 days, every student will have the opportunity to ask you questions about your idea and make constructive comments
  • Every student will then have the option to vote for which ideas they want to see taken forward by your Students’ Union Officers.
  • If your idea gets a minimum score of 16 votes at the end of the 14 days, your idea will have received enough votes to be sent to the Executive Officer team to review and make a final decision on whether this idea becomes an official BCUSU policy or not. Your votes and comments will help the Executive Officer team make that final decision.

So start thinking about what would help you have a better student experience at BCU, and submit it here!

    Dedicated Part-Time Disability Support

      I'm a part student and have a disability. I struggle daily to find the support I need to get my studies done effectively. Can there be a way for part time students to have a port of call or advisor dedicated to BCU part time students?

    4:26pm on 9 Apr 20 A lot of disabled students struggle to get in contact when necessary and get support and some are unaware of what support exists for them. I would say the whole system of support needs improving. In addition many BCU staff members are unaware of what support is offered also and which students actually have support summaries. After all there is little point in having a support plan in place if the staff are inconsistent in carrying it out or don't even know that a particular student needs the support. I think though it would be beneficial for part time students to have a dedicated support person, due to the times they are in university. But ultimately if this is picked up could there please be pressure to update the whole system and make it more effective. Or instead of having a centralised support team split it up into faculties, so they are dealing with less students and there is more communication.
