As a BCU student you are automatically a member of your Students’ Union and have access to the wide range of fantastic services and facilities that the team offers. They help to create and promote a great student experience for you to ensure that you get the most out of your time with us!
BCUSU will be behind some of the biggest events at the University, such as Welcome Week and Graduation Ball. They also offer over 100 sports teams, societies and media groups for you to get involved in. Whatever your interests, they’ve got it covered!
Find a society or sports club to get involved and start making friends from the get-go.
The Students’ Union is run by five elected officers – a President and four Vice Presidents, supported by a team of part-time elected officers, staff and student staff. Each officer represents the views and needs of our students in specific areas. Here’s a list of the BCUSU officer roles:
Student's Union President: Responsible for leading the Officer team and has four main areas of responsibility;
- Encouraging teamwork and collaboration between the Executive Committee
- Ensuring all of the officers are involved in effective campaigning
- Chairing the Board of Trustees and working closely with the Chief Executive to ensure the Board of Governors operates efficiently
- Acting as the figurehead for BCUSU to the University, the media and external organisations
The President is also tasked to represent BCU students at all University Board of Governors and Senate meetings.
Vice President Academic Experience: Responsible for everything to do with academia and the way that you are taught during your time at university.
Vice President Equity & Inclusion: Responsible for ensuring BCUSU is representative of all our students and that they get the support that they need.
Vice President Opportunities & Community: Responsible for our societies and sports teams, as well as developing student skills and employability.
