Extracurricular opportunities at BU

Extracurricular opportunities at BU

Extracurricular activities are a large part of the student experience for many of you during your time at university.

From being a PAL leader, a student ambassador, a society member or volunteering for one of the many opportunities available through the Student’s Union, there is a wealth of opportunities available for you.

The Skills Development Programme aims to not only support you in finding these opportunities but also to self-reflect on these experiences and articulate the transferrable skills that you are developing from taking part in them.

A good starting point to engage with extracurricular activity at BU is to look at our opportunities page available on MyCareerHub.
