The start of your success story

A warm welcome

We are really looking forward to you joining us.

We’re working harder than ever to ensure you receive the warmest BNU welcome, from the very first day of term. We’ve got exciting plans to help you settle in, including activities to help you meet new friends and support services to make sure you get the most out of your time here.

To help you prepare, we’ve put together everything you’ll need to know before joining us, including what you need to do before you get here and what to expect when you arrive. You may want to book a campus tour, or take a virtual tour instead.
