Tips for using your BCU Email as a graduate


Move things over to your personal email

Make sure you move any important emails, subscriptions, and newsletters you like to receive over to your personal email address before graduating from BCU.

Remember key contacts

If there are people from BCU that you’re keen to stay in touch with after graduation, make sure you note down their contact details before graduating and contact them in the future via your personal email address.

Set up forwarding

If you don’t want to have to check both inboxes, you can forward emails sent to your BCU email address to your personal email address so they’re all in one place.

Keep in touch

If you’re setting up a new personal email address, make sure you let us know so we know where to reach you in the future.

Update your details


Use your BCU email for important matters

Don’t use your BCU email for your bank, phone bill, mortgage applications, rent payments and emergency contact details as you will no longer be able to access to your account 24 months after your graduation.

Apply for jobs with your BCU email

So you can stay in the loop with any job applications, it is best to use your personal email address when applying for roles just in case you lose access to your BCU account.

Use your BCU email for everyday use

After graduating from BCU, you will need to use your personal email address for everyday use. This includes online shopping, bills and events. We recommend that you set up a personal email address before graduating and start using it on a regular basis to get used to it.
