“Extending the student experience beyond the classroom”
“To inspire and equip our members to discover opportunities that they will find enjoyable and empowering”
Students are at the heart of all we do
We instigate change. We are creative. We challenge self and others.
We are always welcoming and supportive.
The team supports the running of the Bloomsbury Institute Student Guild in different ways and each role is important.
Ensuring that the strategic priorities set by the student body are delivered and that the system of student representation is healthy and thriving.
Student Representation creates an opportunity for the voice of every student to be heard. The Bloomsbury Institute Student Guild exists to make this a reality by representing the views of its members which comprises of every student that enrolls at the Institution.
The Student Guild is governed by its Board Of Trustees. The Board of Trustees is made up of students (who remain full-time students) who volunteer some of their spare time to play an important and vital role within the Board.
The Student Guild runs a number of societies and clubs that enable you to build your social capital by interacting and networking with a diverse number of fellow students, lecturers, professionals and influential people outside your usual remit.
We believe in making a difference, especially within education, hence we support and fundraise periodically for the Santa Maria Education Fund.
You do not have to belong to a Society or be part of the Student Representation to contribute to the Student Guild. Every Student of Bloomsbury Institute is an automatic member of the Student Guild. The “Student’s Corner” gives you an opportunity to have your voice heard.
We keep you up-to-date on the exciting things happening throughout the year so you do not miss out on the fun.
Referred to as “Friends of the Guild” helps you remain connected to the Student Guild, Bloomsbury Institute, former colleagues and others who have passed through these doors at some point in the past.
We have a range of customised products for our students, also available to anyone who would like to express their allegiance.
