BSU will provide Year 12 students with the information and opportunities to help them make an informed decision about whether or not they want to go to university. It is completely free to attend as everything is paid for by the University.

  • Workshops and lectures in subjects of their choice help students to choose the subject(s) they would like to study
  • Higher Education Information Sessions develop students' personal skills that will help them in their university career
  • Social activities encourage students to make lots of new friends and have loads of fun too!
