BCUSU is here for YOU!
Today we wanted to take the opportunity to remind you about a key BCU service and community you all have access to, no matter what course you’re studying or faculty you’re in – every student is a part of the Birmingham City University Students Union.
The BCUSU is a registered charity, it’s independent from the university and is run by five elected officers – a President and four Vice Presidents, supported by both staff and students.
In essence, BCUSU is here for all students and will help you in your university journey – check out the website to discover what the union can do for you throughout your time at BCU: https://www.bcusu.com
So, how can YOU get involved in the BCUSU action?
There is a number of clubs and societies you can join when coming to BCU, there is over 100 and there truly is something for everyone… here is just a small taste of what is available here, and plus, if you don’t see something you like you also have the option of creating your own society with a minimum of 10 students needed to start yours.
