At BGU, we recognise that students need to develop a range of attributes alongside their expertise in specific subject areas. Students are also encouraged to develop a global outlook, strong academic practice, and the skills, qualities and attitudes needed for success in their future work and life. These are described as the BGU Graduate Attributes.
The following pages detail what each Attribute develops along with all of the current opportunities the University provides for continual progression and development. We value the expertise that employers can offer to the Graduate Attributes project.
For further information about how you could become involved, please email Allison Webb.
