BCOM has an international reputation for academic and research excellence

College Life

The Student Union

There is an active Student Union at BCOM. It is affiliated to the National Union of Students and offers members reduced-price travel and various other typical NUS benefits. Regular events, inter-collegiate sporting activities and curry nights are just a selection of extracurricular activities organised by the SU team.

The Student Union also participates fully in the academic life of the college and is represented in a number of important committees, acting as a liaison between students, college management and the BCOM Board of Governors. Student Welfare is also a key area of involvement.

Student Voice

Here at BCOM we actively encourage our students to give both oral and written feedback on their learning experiences as this is vital to shaping our student experience both now and in the future. Ideas, comments and requests are collected continually through a variety of channels both formal and informal – Programme Reps, on-line module surveys – and all feedback is taken seriously.

Freshers Week

This is the first week of term at BCOM and is structured to introduce students to the course and to college life in general. The college Administration and Students Union prepare a programme of events to welcome students to BCOM. The first day is scheduled for enrolment, financial administration and a formal welcome from the Principal and members of Faculty, culminating in an early evening social event.

Introductory lectures and practical Osteopathic classes commence on day two, accompanied by an introduction to research, all with an emphasis on meeting Faculty and interacting with other peer groups of students. Key members of staff will be on hand for dedicated advice during this week. By week two, new students are feeling very much at home.
