All BIA trips and residential courses are organised with the care and safety of under-18s in mind. A risk assessment is carried out by a suitably trained officer for all excursions. These events and the centres we use all have appropriately trained and DBS checked staff. There are appropriate ratios of adults to under-18s.
The University allows students under 18 to take part in most of the events, societies and sports on offer. However, there are some restrictions concerning specific events with alcohol or where the University feels that the activity involved, though legal, is not suitable for under-18s. The BIA and the Student Guild will inform you of what is suitable for under-18s to take part in.
