Bucks app gives students helping hand

An app has been created at Bucks New University to support new students during their first weeks of settling into university life

The Bucks Student app is tailor-made to empower new students with the knowledge of how to get around campus and where to go for support and enquiries.

Developed by BucksUnity Game Designer, Thomas Maycock, the app puts students in control whilst reducing anxieties of where to go and who to meet during and beyond fresher’s week.

Thomas said: “I have really enjoyed developing the Bucks Student app. I’m convinced it will deliver real value to both new and experienced students. We are hoping to create more apps that support people throughout their Bucks journey, from fresher’s to graduation, and even recruitment.”

The app was developed as part of the Bucks Welcome, the University’s innovative programme of activities which welcome and support new students during their first week at Bucks.

Ruth Gunstone, Director of Student Services at Bucks New University, said: “The app is attractive and accessible. It’s really helped students orientate themselves on campus and has kept them up to date with events and activities, helping them to settle into university life and make the most of it.”

The app can be downloaded for free on the Google and iTunes store and you can find out more by visiting bucks.ac.uk/app.
