More about studying at BU

We understand that no two people have the exact same experience with us. That’s why we offer a range of support services, systems and facilities that are designed to help students at all levels reach their full potential. During your postgraduate research degree, you’ll also have access to our PGR management system, ResearchPAD, which enables you to record, monitor and track your progression.
