Once you register for your couse, you’ll have access to a range of pre-arrival activities – some tailored to your course – to help you prepare, as well as online journals and study guides to help get you in the zone.

Then, when you’re here, you’ll have a course induction ahead of formal lectures, as well as access to our libraries, library support staff, study skills and IT workshops, sessions with students already studying your course (Peer Assisted Learning) and more.

The information on this page will help you if you are joining BU on a foundation or undergraduate degree.
