  • There are many services and activities available from a students’ first day to ensure they feel welcomed and supported at BGU, such as the Buddy scheme, the SU’s welcome activities and the teams of Student Advice and the Chaplaincy working with the student throughout their time with us at BGU.

Accommodation for International Students

  • Accommodation on our campus is guaranteed for international students and we strongly recommend students live on campus, especially during their first year, as we feel it helps students adjust to living abroad and is a great way to make friends.
