Dan, Education Studies & Geography, Year 3
BG is an open, forward-looking community that celebrates diversity and welcomes applications from all students regardless of their age, gender, ethnicity, sexuality, religious affiliation or disability. We are committed to widening access to higher education for all and providing help to people who are under-represented in the sector. Below are just some of the reasons why we think you should consider Bishop Grosseteste University.

We are rated 3rd in England for graduate employment in Education
According to the Times Good University Guide 2011, we are rated 5th in the UK for graduate employment in Education, our largest subject area.
We provide a wealth of innovative resources
At BG we are keen to be at the forefront of technological advances. We currently offer students campus-wide wireless internet access (including in study bedrooms), a Virtual Learning Environment and video conferencing facilities to name but a few.
We support our students and value their happiness
“To be a student at BG is to be part of a friendly, welcoming and diverse community of people. If you have a problem there will always be someone who will listen or give you a hand, something you will notice straight away if you come to have a look around.” Tom, Education Studies & Science graduate
We care about our students’ health, fitness and well-being
We offer all our students free use of our Sport and Fitness Centre, including large sports hall and well appointed gym. We can also boast 10 acres of on-site sports fields and a state-of-the-art Human Performance Laboratory. The only church HEI in the East Midlands, BG welcomes students of all faiths and none, providing a space where questions of faith can be debated in an atmosphere of respect.
We stimulate personal growth
At BG we foster an ethos in which the whole person is valued and diversity is celebrated. Our students have a wide range of opportunities for personal development, including our volunteering and European Exchange programmes.
We house our students in the heart of a green, single-site campus
We are proud of our self-contained, picturesque campus and offer accommodation for our students within it. “The campus is beautiful, with everything you need within two minutes of walking. It’s also growing really quickly but that’s great because that means more people to get to know and work with!” Ryan, graduate and Vice President of the Students' Union 2009/2010
