Meet the students

As a BFA student you will have the opportunity to get involved with team sports, pursue hobbies and interests and meet new people through many different groups and societies. 

We even have our own BFA football team, Mason Rangers, founded by one of our current students, Tresna, who now studies his undergraduate degree in the College of Social Sciences. 

We know that, as a BFA student, you will want to experience both the academic and social side of student life in the UK. We plan a dedicated Welcome week timetable for you so that when you arrive you have as many opportunities as possible to settle in, meet new friends and familiarise yourself with your new home.

Social events

There are lots of social events organised by the BFA team and Guild of Students, as well as events organised by other BFA students . Current students have also set up country societies, which are a great way to meet people from your home country before you arrive, and a comforting group of people to socialise with if you ever miss your home.

We will also take you on a weekend residential trip to enjoy team-building activities with fellow BFA students; a great way to meet the staff and students you'll be working closely with on your foundation year.

If you are unable to travel to campus yourself, visit our You Tube channel to watch films of our beautiful campus. 

Photographs of our BFA students throughout their programme can be found on our  Facebook page, or take a look through the gallery below.
