  • SiD Online is best in class for student experience
    SiD Online, the University of Bedfordshire’s student information website, has won The Tribal Enterprise Service Desk (ESD) Award for Improvements to the Student Experience. The award was presented to the University’s Head of Customer Service Excellence, Amanda Krebs, at Tribal’s recent annual SITS conference. The award celebrates the University’s achievements in utilising the ESD product, providing effective and efficient customer support and demonstrating best practice within the Higher Education sector. SiD Online is used by Student information Desks at all five of the University’s campuses as a customer relationship management and enquiry management tool. Since its launch in July 2010, SiD Online is now used by 34 teams across the University with over 286 users. Over 100,000 student enquiries were logged during its first year. Ken Barrett, ESD Product Lead at Tribal Group, said: “It is becoming increasingly important to identify an integrated approach to Customer Services within HE institutions and to have a vision to bring about holistic student support across departments and functional areas.
  • London looting raises big questions about society, says Uni expert
    The looting in London after recent riots is not just opportunistic, but raises much bigger questions about young people with nothing to lose – that’s the view of University of Bedfordshire youth culture expert Professor John Pitts. Talking to the Guardian newspaper, the criminologist said: “Things that normally constrain people are not there. Much of this was opportunism but in the middle of it there is a social question to be asked about young people with nothing to lose. “Many of the people involved are likely to have been from low-income, high-unemployment estates, and many, if not most, do not have much of a legitimate future.” Professor Pitts added: “They feel they can rationalise it by targeting big corporations. There is a sense that the companies have lots of money, while they have very little. [Looters] quickly see that police cannot control the situation, which leads to a sort of adrenalin-fuelled euphoria – suddenly you are in control and there is nothing anyone can do."
  • Reel opportunity for film exchange students
    Eight University of Bedfordshire students are in the frame for an opportunity of a lifetime when they were chosen as part of a film-making exchange in Russia and Spain. Now they’ve just completed the second leg of the three-part exchange, which saw students from Russia and Spain spend two weeks filming alongside the group from Bedfordshire. Four Bedfordshire students visited Russia in June this year and another four will visit Spain in September. The UK part of the exchange was divided between the filming process and visiting tourist attractions. The students were divided into production groups before they arrived and have been busy writing scripts and exchanging ideas using a Facebook group and emails. They started filming as soon as they arrived in the UK and had three days set aside to edit their footage into a film of twelve minutes maximum. The general brief for the film was to look at the financial difficulties facing society and the films were shot in Luton and London. All the students took on different roles, including cinematography, editing, sound, production and lighting.
  • Clearing plans underway at University of Bedfordshire
    Plans are underway at the University of Bedfordshire to help students secure a University place on A level results day (Thursday, 18 August). A 50-strong Clearing team is being trained to offer advice and support to hopeful students who will be looking to find a last-minute place. On the first day of the Clearing campaign last year the University received a staggering 19,000 calls to its special hotline. Places are expected to fill up fast this time round. Head of UK/EU Admissions Susie King said: “We are expecting to have some places available, particularly in computing, science, law and business and we anticipate getting a large number of calls this year. “We will have a dedicated team of advisers on hand to guide students through the clearing process but my advice would be for students to act quickly if they don’t get the grades they need. The sooner they call us the quicker we can help them secure a place.”

  • Bedfordshire staff take centre court for UK university sport
    Two staff members from the University of Bedfordshire have been appointed key roles in British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS). Professor John Brewer, who is Director of Sport at the University, has joined the Executive Board of BUCS, while Sport Development Officer Julia Lines will be part of the Advisory Group. Both bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the roles. Professor Brewer said: “I’m really looking forward to being part of a group that steers the direction of sport in higher education. The University of Bedfordshire has worked closely with BUCS over many years and I’m looking forward to being able to play a bigger role in university and college sport. “As a board member and Director of Sport at the University of Bedfordshire, I’m especially excited about the BUCS 2012 Athletics Championships to be held at the new Olympic stadium in London.

  • Engineering students get a taste of the aircraft industry
    A group of University of Bedfordshire engineering students got the chance to see aircraft maintenance in action on a recent visit to Monarch Engineering at London Luton Airport. Seventeen members of the University’s Students’ Branch of the Institute of Electrical Electronics Engineering (IEEE) met with John Swords, Maintenance and Operations Change Agent at Monarch Engineering, who explained the various services Monarch provides to the aviation industry. The students also met with Monarch’s General Manager John-Paul Williams. During their tour, the students boarded a Boeing 737 passenger jet to see first-hand how routine mechanical and electrical maintenance is carried out. The Students’ Branch IEEE President Kesiena Chris-Iwuru thanked Mr Williams and Mr Swords for hosting the visit and presented Mr Williams with a book about the history of aircraft engineering in the UK. The Students’ Branch IEEE, based in the University’s Faculty of Creative Arts, Technologies and Science, was only formed last year and is actively seeking more partnerships with local businesses to provide engineering students with valuable contact with industry. The Branch is a local member of IEEE - ‘the world’s largest professional association dedicated to advancing technological innovation and excellence’.
  • Bedford pupils score with GB goalball team
    Eight lucky youngsters from Lincroft Middle School in Bedford got the chance to train with the Women’s GB goalball team at the University of Bedfordshire. The team was using the University’s sports facilities for a training camp before the European Goalball Championships in October this year. Goalball is a competitive sport for the visually impaired. It is a game played by two teams of three players, and sighted players can also participate as all players wear eyeshades so that they are totally blindfolded. The pupils from Lincroft Middle School spent a day with the team learning the basics of goalball. They said: “It was great. It’s very hard as we’ve never played it before and you really can’t see anything at all, so you have to feel your way around the court.” The team coached the youngsters before demonstrating a fast-paced game. Goalball is played on an indoor court and the ball contains internal bells which helps players locate it during play. The object of the game is to score a goal by bowling the ball along the floor so that it crosses the goal line of the opposing team.

  • Brexit is a Mess. Lets get some imagination.

    It is still in the slow lane-Nothing is really happening.-It is too confusing to reconfigure
    If we are leaving The EU. We need to initially set up a carbon copy of the EU Departments to take over our affairs in each specialised area. Not a UK Government Dept
    This means we will have to set up say A financial and Medical Associations say that is going to be responsible for that specific subject.
    Plus all the other Associations that will be needed such as trade. These could be set up as a private businesses or other UK Associations.

    The Government does not seem to do this.That is why it is going round in circles because of its lack of knowledge in specialised areas.

    Ireland is also a big problem and really could be JOINED TOGETHER. It then needs to consider as a whole. Not as half whether it follows the UK new system or EU

    The UK new system proposed should be initially based on EU Departments/Associations.This needs to be set up and controlled by The UK Associations..The UK Associations also Needs to look at other countries and add them into the system like a EU block. Ours will be a New UK Block and could incorporate Canada, India, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Ireland, America and any EU Countries that have a problem with the EU system.

    There is no imagination of how to set up something when its controlled by a Government.

    How wonderful it would be to have these countries or existing bodies as a member of THE UNITED KINGDOM TRADE ASSOCIATION

    Get the idea and not controlled like The EU as a single entity or a common currency-Lets Just Protect individual Sovereign identity and be part of various associations.

    Can we do it please

  • Lets have a second referendum on Brexit

    Now we have been educated with the problems of Brexit. We now realise its a big mistake to get out of Europe.Even The EU realises that.
    Why do not we go for a second referendum and test the water again.Parliament keeps telling us they are working for the will of the people.I hate to tell them THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE HAS CHANGED-YOU ARE OUT OF DATE AGAIN. ANOTHER POLITICAL BLUNDER COMING UP.
    Some members of Parliament consider that they will have more personal power by getting out of Europe. That is why
    the economy is sinking just on the thought of Brexit.
    Why do we keep heading towards the cliff. There is no green grass at the bottom of this cliff.

  • Disaster is on its way for the UK economy

    Over the last 40 years we became involved with many activities linked to the EU.
    These will now have to be moved to a EU Country. This will mean loss of jobs for the UK and a disaster for the economy

    Trade needs to be linked to the EU. There is not enough for us outside the EU. UK Business needs the EU for trade and staff

    The EU Countries are taking their own control over immigration. We can do that and still retain our EU rights. We only need the right type of immigrants.

    GO FOR A SECOND REFERENDUM AND REVERSE THIS DOOM or Stay linked to the EU (As Norway) and strengthen our economy.

  • Second Referendum is our only hope

    The Election failed to show us any way forward.We are now in a worse situation.
    We have to reconsider our situation and ask the public to reconsider their situation NOW before we negotiate with the EU

    We need to have another referendum.

    We need to state on the voting document

    If we vote out it will make us poorer.

    If we vote in our economy will be better

  • Government needs an Action List

    Now The Government is on the back seat mainly because of their own demise.

    The only answer now is a soft or weaker Brexit.

    But is it worth going through the pain considering a soft or weaker weaker Brexit.

    Why not save the turmoil and have another referendum. Maybe the younger voters will now realise they have to vote and brexit will be forgotten

  • Brexit and an Election WHAT NEXT ?

    Having an election before Brexit. This appears to gives the Government a chance to impose more ways of getting our money. ie rewrite the Manifesto.

    The country has also had to accept for years that dementia is not an illness and we have to pay for it. Really?

    Now The Government are kidding us that 100 K is the way forward and we should be content with the government allowing us to keep 100 K of our inheritance. By the way you pay everything else over when your dead.

    The election is unfortunately a diversion. We should be thinking more about Brexit and dealing with it.

    We have unfortunately managed to get ourselves into voting for Brexit because Cameron could not work with the European Union. There is a need for The European Union to change attitude and work more for the countries they represent.

    That does not mean we stop immigrants. Control it maybe if you can.

    We need immigrants from Europe to work with us and for us. So why don't we go with Europe policy for now and wait for them modify their immigration policy. There is nothing stopping us monitoring the immigration without restriction unless they are criminal etc.

    Trading-do we want to trade outside The European Union . Europe are are neighbours and our friends. We should trade with them first. They are on our doorstep.

    Are the conservatives going in the right way to improve living and trading conditions. I think not.


    Leaving The EU is much more complicated than we all thought. Do we continue in it and change the rules.

    Employment- We still need to allow employers employ Euro Nationals. We have do not have enough trained educated candidates in the UK. Extreme control over stopping immigration will be harmful and disaster for us.

    Trade- its good that we could get trading with who we want. There is still a strong need to continual trading with Europe.running the two systems would be better for all EU Members

    European Law. Needs modifying. We can never get rid of it but somethings need sorting to make it more practical.EU Member should be able to use local laws and not be dominated by EU Power to control

    The EU is like all large block of power. Difficult to deal with and power crazy.

    It needs to have a different structure and attitude towards EU Members. EU Members must still be able to work at being small, individual and independent and use a the larger group network to improve things such a crime prevention and trading. Not allow the network ie EU take control and power over each European Country.

    If the EU was able to change its attitude towards its members it might be able to survive. If it does not and we are not in it.We can never save it.

  • Election is a bit of a gamble

    Half the country never wanted to get out of Europe. They still do not.
    They will not vote Labour because it would be a wasted vote.
    They could vote Lib Dem hoping that a power shift away from The Conservatives will dilute a Hard Brexit.

  • Brexit again it will not go away

    We had the vote because the politicians could not decide whether we stayed in The EU.
    Just over half of the country agreed to leave.
    We are really still in a position where half the country wants to stay in.
    How can we find a solution to sort this.
    The only answer is we have to go forward in the interest of the country. NOT THE INDIVIDUAL.

    So take immigration.
    We are desperate for people to work in our businesses.
    We have to accept that immigration is acceptable.
    We can control it by insisting a person has to have a job.
    We can control benefits accordingly.

    The laws
    We accept all European Laws to date. We will have to modify some to line up with our new policies.

    We stick with NATO

    We trade exactly the same with Europe. Except. We negotiate our own new agreements outside Europe

    Research Farming etc.
    If we are not paying into Europe we have to finance things ourselves or set up and pay for partnerships.


  • Brexit is still not looking well

    The government seem to be doing what governments are good at. Do every thing the population do not want.

    Most people probably voted out because the EU would not listen and would not put some control over immigration. I say control I do not mean preventing or creating state registers.

    I agree Human rights also made it difficult for governments to have some control ie to prevent the wrong people getting into a country. How far do we want to control. We will never be able to control everyone and why would we want to.

    The government now sees its opportunity to take total control and it will probably be worse than the EU control.

    The governments blind spot to focus on total control of immigration will also kill the economy.

    Maybe parliament needs to vote and decide how the Brexit vote should be handled.

    Its such a difficult subject to resolve. If the government created some sort of immigration policy.
    Then put this to the EU to get their agreement.

    We could then continue to be in the EU and not have this headache.So simple.
