Faith and Spirituality Team

Starting and studying on a course at university may be quite a challenge, as well as offering many opportunities. Sometimes when we're learning new things, a point of reference is needed. As chaplains, we believe we can provide that. We are available to all students, whether they are of any faith or none.

What is a chaplain?

A chaplain is someone you can talk to in confidence and in the knowledge that you will not be judged or looked down on. We will listen sensitively, and although we are from a religious background ourselves, we will not attempt to talk you round to our ways of seeing things.

Faith and Spirituality Team

Whatever your beliefs, our team of chaplains is here to support you during your time at BCU. The team can signpost to local places of worship, answer questions about their own faith or support students of any faith in times of difficulty.
