We aim to make students’ studies at BGU exciting and enjoyable that’s why the following services, activities and departments are available to you from your very first day of study at BGU.
International Induction Event
This event at the start of your studies will help you to familiarise yourself with UK culture and provide the opportunity for you to get all your questions answered.
On your arrival, you are given the opportunity to have a current BGU student as your Buddy to help you to find your way around and familiarise yourself with life in Lincoln.
Our Student Advice team is your first stop shop for a range of services offering advice and assistance to prospective and current students. They have access to reliable, up-to-date resources and information regarding visas, immigration, access to UK Health Services and working in the UK.

Learning Development is a university wide service, based in the Cornerstone Building (our Library). The Learning Development Team are committed to providing services for all students, on all courses and in all years of study. Learning Development also works collaboratively with academic departments to develop students’ academic competencies and its work complements and contributes to the skills elements embedded within modules. Find out how this service could help you throughout your studies.
Our SU is much more than organising events and giving you a great social experience at BGU. They are also your representatives, your voice and will champion change on behalf of our students. Our SU is associated with the NUS (National Union of Students) which is committed to representing students’ views and is keen to hear your opinion as an international student.

BGU has deep roots in the Anglican Church and our Chaplain and Chaplaincy team are on hand from your first days and are always available to any who seek a quiet space and a listening ear,
irrespective of religious beliefs. They also organise a range of informal social events and “get togethers” as a way of simply bringing people together to enjoy one another’s company and grow in friendship. Click here to find out how the Chaplaincy can help you.
The UK Council for International Student Affairs (UKCISA) website provides a wide range of information about arriving in the UK.
