Welcome to BNU
To help you prepare, we’ve put together everything you need to know on our website. By accessing your joining instructions and the other information in the links below, you’ll find out what you need to do before you start your apprenticeship programme with Buckinghamshire New University.
It’s important for you to attend your Induction Day. All apprentices will receive their Student ID badge and number at their Induction. Once you have received your Student ID you can log in and get access to both Blackboard (the Virtual Learning Environment) and Aptem (the Learner Management System), which you will use to access your assignments, submit course work and create an e-portfolio to evidence your work during your Apprenticeship.
But it's not all work! For information about social events and other opportunities to get involved and make new friends, please take a look at what Bucks Students' Union are planning.
Welcome to Buckinghamshire New University and the start of your apprenticeship journey.
Starting your apprenticeship but not sure what you are entitled to? Here is the essential guide to financial support available to apprentices.
Off-the-job training is the amount of time spent learning new skills, knowledge and behaviours away from your usual day-to-day work duties.
Your Apprenticeship Journey
Our aim is to give you the best possible experience in academic learning, social activities, as well as benefiting from our range of support services, which are available to everyone studying with us.
At the start of your Apprenticeship, you will be invited to attend an induction, where you will have the opportunity to meet the Programmes Academic Team, review the programme, and ask any questions you may have on the delivery of your Apprenticeship Programme.
