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.

Joining instructions are now available to download, and includes lots of useful information to help you settle into life at BNU. The timetable for the first week you’ll be at uni (often known as Fresher’s week) is also ready to download.

For information about social events, take a look at what our Students' Union are planning.

Have you completed the Ready for Success checklist?

The Ready for Success checklist has everything you need to know from MyBNU, to ID cards and timetables, libraries and bursaries, technology and the gym (and everything in between)! Please note this is not compulsory, we feel it's a great way for you to check you have everything you need to kick-start their journey at BNU.

This page will be updated as we continue to confirm our plans or if Government coronavirus guidance changes, so please check back regularly to make sure you are up-to-date with what’s happening!
