The Bishop’s Experience: confidence, courage, community, and growth

What we’re looking for

Bishop’s is more than just a university – it’s a lifestyle. BU is renowned for its small, intimate classes, amazing school spirit and genuine sense of community. It’s a place where you can pursue your passions and take advantage of a multitude of opportunities to make a difference and let your voice be heard.

At BU, we’re looking for students who are curious and ambitious; people who are ready to push the limits, challenge conventions and aspire to greatness. We want individuals who will bring an adventurous spirit with them when they arrive –people who will be courageous enough to ask new questions and find new answers.

Sound like you? If so, we want to hear from you!
