BCS student chapters are a talented and passionate network of students from universities across the UK and internationally.
What are student chapters?
Chapters work in a similar way to a computing society, providing a platform for like-minded students across IT disciplines to get together to debate and share information. They also offer students the opportunity to connect with people working in the industry and to start building a professional network.
Chapters are run by students, for students. They require a committee of individuals to run the chapter, providing a variety of events and activities for its members. Our dedicated chapter team at BCS can help to support you with events, marketing, funding and more.
