What is BXtra?

BXtra aims to build the Brookes student community, share intel on all that Brookes has to offer while you’re here, and showcase students’ achievements.

Bxtra features content on the extra-curricula things students do while at Brookes, like student societies, sports teams, volunteering and work experience.

It also features study-related content, including research, projects and coursework, providing a window on the different degrees across Brookes and shining a spotlight on top class student work.

BXtra also shares content on study skills and wellbeing, providing student-created support and resources.

Could you be featured on BXtra?

Maybe you’re part of a student society or sports team; maybe you’ve created some great digital content as part of your coursework or related to your degree (a blog, podcast, video or graphic); maybe you’re doing some interesting while on a work placement or volunteering; or maybe you’ve got some brilliant study tips or wellbeing support to share.

You can create something fresh for the site, or submit something you’ve put together previously, even if it’s already online elsewhere.

BXtra is a great platform to boost your online profile and reach a wider audience. Being featured on a uni website looks great on your CV! Check out the site to see how to submit content.
