The app to make student life easier

If only there was one place where you could see your schedule, get updates about your course and live chat whenever you had an enquiry. There is! Find out why you need to download the BCU University Assistant app if you study with us, or before you start your course. 

The University Assistant (UA) has become a huge success over the last five years among students at BCU. Receive the latest information, whether that is from your course, faculty or the University, directly to your phone! What's even better is that we target our content, so you'll only see information that's relevant to you.

Here are some features that will be available to you when you download the University Assistant app.

Welcome Week information

Starting University might feel overwhelming with so much new information to take in. That’s why we have everything you need to get familiar with campus and student life within the touch of a button. When you first start, you can use the app to find Welcome Week information, plus, access your new schedule and receive a welcome message from your Course Leader.


Throughout the academic year, University Assistant will keep you updated on the various events taking place on campus. From events that involve your course, to more social activities; University Assistant will have you covered!

Important updates

Throughout the year you'll receive important updates about your course through the app. This could be room changes, updates regarding your lectures, important university news and more. We can even send a push notification directly to your phone!

Ask us your questions

Lost, confused or have a question to ask? University Assistant has a live chat feature where your query will be handled by our friendly and knowledgeable University Assistant Team. The live chat is answered on weekdays during working hours. You can also use this feature to alert the UA team of any issues that you come across on the app itself. Over the past five years, we've had thousands of queries, so there's not much we can't help with!

Help us to improve and share your feedback

After winning a ‘Collaborative Award for Teaching Excellence’, the UA team has been continuously working on the app to add more features to support you during your time at BCU.

Look out for regular polls on University services and the app itself, where you can provide feedback to improve your experience at BCU.

You can download the app by searching ‘University Assistant’ in the app or Google Play Store.
