Why you should study at BNU
Award-winning Students' Union
Bucks Students’ Union is in the top 3 in the country (NSS 2020) and has been for the past three years. The SU is a large part of university life. They act as a bar, restaurant, nightclub and events holder. The SU also offers, through ‘The Big Deal’, free societies, clubs and courses – Such as first aid training, CV writing, food safety and other useful skills which can boost your CV.
Bucks is the only university in the whole of the UK which offers a range of exciting events from the Students’ Union for free to its students!
Our Bucks’ lecturers are all experts in their field. Their years of experience in their chosen industry ensure you learn the skills and knowledge you need to be a desirable graduate to employers.
I’m on the Policing and Criminal Investigation course and all of my lecturers are ex-police officers, which means that they can give first-hand experience from being ‘on-the-beat’ and working as an actual police officer.
Health and Wellbeing support
Bucks offers free counselling services to help you with any university struggles you may be having, from financial and accommodation issues to mental health and settling in. Bucks also has a Careers centre which can help you as you work on landing your dream career or even just a little part time job whilst you are uni. The Advice Centre is also on hand throughout the week to answer any queries which you might have, and are always open to assist you where they can. The Learning Development Unit (LDU) is also a really helpful service if you struggle with structuring essays, referencing and any other general queries regarding your course or coursework.
Chat to students and staff
Overall, I could not recommend Bucks enough! The first two years of my university life have been absolutely off the scale. If you are considering going to Bucks then I would suggest definitely go to one of our open days, or taking a virtual tour. Also chat to current students and staff online through the Bucks website, they can help you get a real insight into your chosen course!
