We know that deciding what universities to apply for can be a difficult decision. That's why we've put together our top six reasons why you should consider applying to Bishop Grosseteste University (BGU).

Graduate Employability

Here at BGU we are so proud of our graduates and all they go on to achieve. Figures released by the Higher Education Statistic Agency (HESA) in July 2018 show that 97% of BGU graduates find work or are continuing to study six months following graduation. With many of our courses offering work placements, along with schemes such as graduate attributes, we work hard to ensure that our students leave BGU well equipped for their future career.

Our leafy campus

We love our beautiful self-contained campus, especially on a sunny day! Whether you want to relax outside in the sun, treat yourself in our cafes, work out in the gym or even catch a film at our cinema, the BGU campus has plenty to keep you entertained.

Welcoming environment

Here at BGU we pride ourselves on the fact that our students are names and not numbers. The welcoming, family feel on campus will make you feel instantly at home!
