Bishop Grosseteste’s Students’ Union (BGSU) is run by full-time and part-time officers across a range of areas. They support students throughout their time at the university, as well as helping to run the variety of clubs and societies and holding regular social events for students.
BGSU is run for students, by students, and is an independent registered charity that exists to represent their student members. It helps to ensure all students are equally represented no matter their background and offers support for any students in dispute with the university itself.
All BGU students automatically become members of the students’ union when they enrol at the university. Students can then access the support and facilities immediately, while during their first weeks at the university they will receive extensive information on the social events, clubs and societies offered.
Run by the students’ union, at BGU there are many societies to choose from, including several competitive sports teams. Students are actively encouraged to join a club or society that interests them, to allow students the necessary time to unwind from their studies and make new friends.
These clubs and societies include:
If there’s nothing on offer that catches a student’s eye, they can also set up their own society and will find help and support from the SU team.
Attending a club or society is not just good for students’ mental and physical wellbeing but it can also serve as a strong addition to students’ CVs when they are graduating and looking for work in their field, particularly if students have risen to leadership roles within their club.
A unique, multi-cultural and student-friendly city to live in, Lincoln is split into two halves with the historic Cathedral Quarter and the more modern city centre linked together by Steep Hill, which has a wide range of quirky independent shops. In recent years, the city has matured into a thriving cultural hotspot, offering students a heady mixture of old and new, historic and contemporary, traditional and cutting-edge.
Students make up a significant proportion of the population of Lincoln, so there are plenty of friendly faces waiting to welcome new students
Lincoln is also ideally placed to give students easy access to Nottingham, Sheffield and the coast. Transport links for the rest of the country are excellent via road and rail, while the three airports in close proximity make it easy for international students to attend the university.
