As a new nursing or midwifery student based on one of our satellite-campuses at University Centre Yeovil or St Mary’s Community Health Campus in Portsmouth, we appreciate the start of term will be slightly different.
This page will take you through your next steps and direct you to information that is relevant to you.
Information for new students
You will find lots of useful information about preparing for your course, what to bring, student support, finance, fees and funding and well as BU's Students' Union on our Information for new students pages.
Registration and enrolment
From Tuesday 17 August, if you hold an Unconditional Firm (U/F) offer, a registration invitation will be sent to the email address you used throughout your application process. This email will explain how to complete your online registration and enrolment, the documents you will need to complete the process and the importance of logging in to Brightspace. Brightspace is BU’s Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). It will be essential to you throughout your time as a student at BU.
You can view all of this informaiton on the registration and enrolment pages of our website.
Pre-arrivals & induction activities
Once you have registered online a series of pre-arrivals and induction activities will be available in Brightspace. Information on these, and other things you can do to get in the right mind set for your course, are available on our new student pages.
Study support and student life
As a BU student you can access all BU support services and arrangements can be made for appointments by phone, email or video call. Check our student support information to find out more about these services.
You’ll have the added benefit of experiencing campus life in either Yeovil or Portsmouth and the facilities designed for your course.
There are a variety of ways you can get involved in arrival activities and meet other new students. You are welcome to get involved with any of the social activities taking place - although you may need to arrange your own accommodation or transport home afterwards, if you’re planning to stay out late!
You can also join our new arrivals Facebook group to find out more and connect with other new students starting in September.
