Our Student Association

Bethlehem Institute Student Association (BISA)

At BTI, student life thrives with diversity, energy, and variety, regardless of whether one’s primary mode of study is through distance learning or on campus.

BISA is the student association of BTI. The Student Council represents BISA with the purpose of ensuring that the student experience at BTI is positive, fun and rewarding.  

The Student Council is refreshed every year with class reps from each year group and from each programme across BTI. Class reps are student volunteers who represent the interests of students to staff. They provide an important link between students and staff in a class; providing feedback on the courses and raising any concerns that students might have.

The Student Council’s responsibilities include the following:

  • organise social events and activities to bring students together across all courses and years and develop a sense of student community
  • represent students to be their voice at all levels and provide services to improve the quality of student life at BTI
