You are about to embark on a remarkable journey; your first year at university!
BEMA, which stands for (University of Birmingham) Black and Ethnic Minorities’ Association, is here for you to promote and protect the social, welfare and political interests of the University’s BME (Black & Minority Ethnic) students, and gives an opportunity to establish friendships with people from other cultures than your own.
We work closely with other Guild bodies and the Ethnic Minority Students’ Officer of the Guild to promote the interests and equality of access to education for the University’s BME population.
BEMA organises a variety of events throughout the year such as Alternative Freshers Week, our annual Black History Month, Imperialism Awareness week, panel discussions, film screenings, and socials.
To stay updated with BEMA please email us at bema[at]guild.bham.ac.uk and we’ll add you to our regular mailing list – and you can contact us through any of the methods below too.
We hope that you use your year to get involved with what BEMA has to offer, and look forward to meeting you at our events, and good luck with your first year.
