Further study discounts
Our Graduate Scholarship offers a 20% fee reduction to all BCU graduates enrolling onto an eligible postgraduate qualification within two years of graduation. It is aimed at encouraging you to fulfil your postgraduate potential by continuing your academic career at BCU, or returning within two years of graduating.
The Doug Ellis Sports Centre boasts an 80-station fitness suite, an eight-court sports hall and an all-weather pitch, as well as workout and spinning studios. Visitors can take advantage of a selection of classes and choose a personalised fitness programme. As BCU Alumni, you can have discounted membership to the sports centre, so that even after you graduate, you can still get your fitness fix. Monthly membership starts from £10 per month and flexible payment schemes are available, as well as the option to pay per visit.
Our libraries provide access to around 62 million resources including books, online journals and much more. Alumni are welcome to register as library users after graduation for a fee of just £35 a year. External library membership still gives you access to the library to study where you can also borrow up to four items, free WiFi on campus and access to the BCU Open Access Repository.
BCU Alumni can continue to access services on the University system for 24 months after the completion of their course. Systems include iCity, mySRS, OneDrive, Moodle, Mahara and Office 365.
As a BCU graduate, you can still use your BCU email account for 24 months after you graduate under the University Student Password policy. You can access your BCU email online using the Outlook app or by using the ‘Student Email’ link at the bottom of our website.
