    Hi, For my course I would be based at City south. Are there any societies on this campus or are the all based at the main campus? Thank you very much!

    I had a interview for nursing and i was then rejected the following week. My brother has cancer so that got in the way in allowing me to prepare for the interview, which is why i may not have done so well . Do I have a chance of getting another interview because i really really want to go BCU! I 'm only 18 and to find out my brother has cancer and has to undergo chemo every month and then to get rejected has put so much pressure and burden on me.... can BCU help me with this? Can they take my personal problems into consideration and give me another chance?

    So sorry to hear about your brother! I think the best thing to do is to email [email protected] to see if there is anything we can do.

    Hi! We have a Facebook group for our Faculty of Health, Education and Life Sciences, so a lot of our current students will follow that. https://www.facebook.com/bcuhealth/?ref=hl

    You might also want to make a new TSR thread for students starting in September at BCU or see if there's one already!

    I recently logged onto the portal to see the application status as pending UCAS update, does it always say that? I can't remember seeing it last time I logged on, so was just wondering if it was a new update or it always says that. Thanks

    That would depend on a number of things. I suggest you contact Admissions for an update if you're concerned.

    It is still early to say whether a course will be in Clearing or not, as this will depend on the number of offers made as well as exam results. More information will be made available on our website in the summer.
