      BCU only has a limited number of psychology postgraduate course compared to other subjects. A masters in clinical psychology is very popular however BCU does not teach that course . It would help and be very beneficial for alot of students if they had that course available. Most other courses such as business have many master options but psychology does not. I would like the student union to help direct attention to this and help forward this issue so that BCU can than start to teach a masters in clinical psychology. This will help BCU student to feel confident enough to complete a master in a university they are familiar and comfortable in. Many students have stated that this would be so beneficial to them.

    How it works


    Submit an idea... anything that could improve student experience is a valid idea.


    • You must be a BCU student, logged in using your student account
    • You can choose to submit anonymously, so your name won’t be displayed.
      BCUSU staff will still be able to see your name and email to contact you



    You will be contacted by the Student Voice Co-ordinator (Student Led Change) to discuss your idea and make any relevant changes to it.


    Your idea then goes live, here on the Ideas Board for other students to vote and comment.

    It will be live until:

    • it reaches 16 positive votes
      or until the end of the academic year (whichever comes first)
    • Students can vote with a thumbs up (agree) or thumbs down (disagree)
    • Votes and comments will help the Executive Officer team make decisions



    If your idea reaches the 16-positive vote threshold:


    • it will be handed over to the Executive Officer team for review
    • they will discuss the idea and decide what action to take
    • the comments section will be updated with the agreed upon actions

    If an idea is raised to hold an Executive Officer to account, and it gains 16 positive votes, it will be reviewed at Scrutiny Group.
