    Hi guys !
    I'm thinking about applying to BCU, but I see it has kinda low rankings. I'm thinking about applying at the business course with professional practice and I'm really confused in what to do because I love that course as it covers more parts of business and I can'tell really find it in another university. What do you know about BCU business school ? Anyone who studies there ? Also I don't know if I should apply to business and management or stick to the business with professional practice.

    Hi there,

    My name is Averil and I am a final year Business and Management student at BCU. Firstly, I think both degrees are really good solid degrees. If you are concerned with getting professional experience whilst you are at uni, you might want to consider having a placement year. Or opting for summer internships between your first and second year and/or second and third year.

    At BCU, we have a placement/internship office as well as a careers centre. All of which has really benefitted me this year, they're really helpful. At BCU, a majority of our faculty have real world business knowledge from working outside of academia. This has been so beneficial to me because Ive been able to learn more about how to put theory into practice and make better links to the real world.

    Also on Business and Management, our classes are very much seminar based. Meaning you get to make better connections with those on your course and your lecturers. I have loved coming to BCU and aside from the great course, we have brand new facilities at our city centre campus where you would be based. It has really added to the university experience.

    If you have any other questions feel free to ask! I wish you good luck with the rest of your university applications!
